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.
