I was talking to an installer and he wanted to charge me $80 but is there a way to get one for free from D*? I have 2 EB68 but I would like to have a powered MS.

I would think that since you have as many boxes and subscriptions as you have, it would be on D* to provide the proper hardware for your setup. I would call D*.

For the WB616?

Not usually.. .there have been some cases.

$80 is a really good price though (that is the 16 port Zinwell right? If so, it is normally $150 or better)

$80 is a great deal. I paid more than the $150 Earl mentioned for mine.
I paid over $200 for my WB616

For me they installed 2 6x8's which worked out better because I have 8 feeds for upstairs
and 8 feeds for downstairs instead of having to run real long cables 16 times.

They also just had to swap out my 5x8's anyway...

I called a retention rep and explained to her my situation (I needed 15 outputs). Told her i needed the wb616 and she gave me a $100 credit on my bill and a $15 discount for 12 months.

When I was discussing the number of lines I needed with my installer, he misunderstood me at first and was prepared to install one as part of my free install. I caught his error and explained the situation again and he realized he didn't need to.
