Customer since 2003, ST customer every year, did not ask for a discount this year.

Currently have 2 HR-23's and 1 H20 set up for Whole-home DVR. I want to add 2 new HD receivers to the mix. (Built an outdoor patio and plan on having twin TVs out there) Dont really need more DVR space as I have a 1TB drive set up on one of the HR-23s.

Of course, DTV wants $99 per HD receiver plus installation. CSR offered them to me for $49 each plus installation on my first call. Is that really the best I can do? Any success stories out there?

Something to consider:
Are you using the TV speakers ? If yes and the TVs are the same brand the remote is going to do the same thing to each of the TVs when a button is pressed. Probably work smoother with 2 different brands of TVs so that the control codes will be different.

No, both will be separate inputs to the AV receiver. That way I can have 2 games on, and can switch audio easily. DTV remotes will be set to RF for channel changing.

Problem Solved: Called up today, said I had heard about the Hopper and thought it would be good for my set up. Also heard the Genie is supposed to do the same thing and I woud rather stay with DTV. Checked my account and offered me the Genie and 2 clients for free.

So new setup will be Genie, 2 clients, and 2 legacy HD DVRs. Woohoo!
