    I am doing some research and budgeting to prepare the case with my accountant/wife to upgrade to WHDVR.

    I've read through the DIRECTV site and this site to determine what is required and I'm unclear as to what my one-time upgrade and on-going incremental costs will be (published before negotiating with DTV CSR and Retention).

    Current Setup
    Slimeline 5LNB Non-SWM
    HR20-700 - LR
    Sony SAT-A3 - MBR
    RCA Std Def - Kitchen

    Target Setup
    HR20-700 - MBR w/DECA
    H25 - Kid BR 1
    H25 - Kid BR 2
    H25 - Office
    HR24 - LR

    One-time Costs
    3 x H25 (Leased) - $300
    1 x HR24 (Leased) - $200
    Installation - $50
    Wireless CCK - ??
    2 x DECA - ??

    Question - Are the costs of the DECAs and Wireless CCK included in the install fee?

    Question - Is the cost of converting to SWM included in the install fee?

    On-going Monthly Costs
    HD Service $10.00
    DVR Service $7.00
    Choice Extra Classic Package $64.49
    HBO $15.99
    Whole Home DVR $3.00
    Advanced Receiver Service fee $20.00
    NEW HD Reciever (Leased) $6.00
    HD-DVR Receiver (Leased) $6.00
    NEW HD Reciever (Leased) $6.00
    NEW HD Reciever (Leased) $6.00
    MONTHLY TOTAL $144.48

    Question - What does the Advanced Receiver Service Fee actually cover?

    Thanks, as always, for your help,
