I bought one retail but not leased. Owned so I can expand the internal hard drive or do whatever else I want with the box. Trying out the DTV boxes and if I don't like it I will fall back on my old SD DirecTiVos. With owned boxes I can just sell them to someone who wants them owned.

You never answered any of the questions Jerry.
Forgive me if I cannot find your questions. Just a statement not based on you having an owned and activated HR34.

No rude awakening here.

Just the same thing I have always done with decoder and recorder boxes. Own them.

I never said they were MY questions. When you post in a forum, it's usually common courtesy to respond to questions that other members ask. Not just ignore them and keep posting.
Sorry, if you had said our questions it would have been more clear to me.

I posted that I would answer the questions in PM.

I am not sure of the rules here for posting information about purchases. Many forums do not allow such posts. I asked the dealer if I could give them referrals and he welcomed them as he is a businessman and likes selling.

So if you too would like to purchase an HR34 owned PM me. I am sure I already have pointed more people towards the deal than the dealer may have stock.

That's fine Jerry, but if you're going to make a post about having an "owned HR34" you should expect questions and be ready to answer them (other than in a PM).

PS. You can post anything you want here about purchases/how much/where.
OK here are the answers.

As posted in two other threads including one I started myself I paid $549 and $17 shipping. Box is activated owned when it gets to me. I would not accept shipment if it were not already tested and activated.

I will not give you the dealer contact details since he is a real working person and I don't want a bunch of lookyloos just calling him up without any intention of buying.

The method I used to find an owned hr34 is one I always use to purchase anything Research Research Research. There are thousands of DirecTV Dealers. The big ones always mentioned on this sort of forum are hardly ever as friendly to consumers as the guy whose next sale means he gets to go to the grocery store on the way home instead of eating leftovers.

So you get online and start finding smaller, entreprenurial dealers who are feeding thier families on a daily basis by being customer friendly. Eventually you will find one or more that are selling what you want at a reasonable price and with great service. Great service means doing what you want.

It took me three days of casual surfing and emailing to find such a dealer. Better even than first expected.

If you or someone you know wants to try to purchase any DirecTV equipment owned, just ask. I, got a brand new HR24 owned at the same time from this great dealer.

I am not being coy here, just trying to keep my dealer from getting way too many calls. I have given contact details to eight folks from here already.

When there is a will there is a way. I made a lot of money for myself and the company I worked for before retiring by finding the good deal.

Both the HR34 and the HR24 that I bought were brand new never opened boxes, never subscribed before I requested the dealer to activate them. I have no way for an installer to come to my home as it moves faster than they can make appointments. So the dealer took the whole system, every bit and piece from the LNB to the receivers with all the bells and whistles in between and hooked the system up in his lot. Then when everything worked as advertised he activated them on my account at my request made sure all my new programming because of HD MRV Etc was working and then boxed up the whole system and shipped it to me. Right from the get go there is no talk of beta units or commercial units or any other sort of thing. This dealer has been with DirecTV from the beginning and is exclusive to DirecTV. He does do custom theater installs as well.

How many more HR34s can he get? I have no idea. All I need to know is that he had one for me.
