Scam...

These "type" of auctions are probably the number #1 scam on ebay.
It is for a "document" on how to possible get it for this price.

Also notice the auction is filled with flaws.
The picture is not an HR20-700, it is an HR10-250
HR20-700 is not a TiVo

And the continuation of "Tivo" name dropping which has ZERO to do with the HR20

If it's free it will come from DirecTV. Why would someone just give away something like that for free? Buyer beware, use your best judgement, if sounds to good to be true it probably is.:eek2:

I wouldn't trust an ebay deal like that. However, Directv gave me my HR20 for free. I was already a subscriber and already purchased the NFL Sunday ticket. I called up CSR and asked if they were giving them away, and they said I qualified, and gave me the HR20 and the new 5 lnb dish for free with free install, other than giving a 2 year commitment to directv. As long as they are the sole provider of NFL ticket, I will be a directv subscriber so it really was free to me. No rebate or anything, it was actually free.

I got the same deal as patstule. The heck with ebay for this kind of thing - D* will help you out if you give them a decent reason. In my case, the reason was being a subscriber with NFLST since '97, various premiums on and off over the years, and otherwise being a good customer. No charges to a credit card to be refunded with subscriptions I don't use or need, no handling fees, nada. Just free. So call Customer Retention and see what they'll do for you.

I do sell on ebay but computer and printer parts (name: raiderpatjs)
I did not post to give anyone free pub. I just want a HR20...bad
but didnt want to pay the $299.00 they wanted. I just called and said
I was lookin to go to Dish and they gave me a $150.00 credit on the
purchase of a HR20 (once or if ever avai) and a $60.00 sports package
credit. So after all said and done my HR20 will cost $90.00.
I will take it !!!
