Hey Mit welcome to the group. Dishnetwork is still offering the PVR501 to existing customers for $199 with 12 month agreement. That's what I did. They will want you to do it with CC autopay, but they will charge you an extra $14 for not enrolling in CC auto pay. So the price comes to $213. I had a dishplayer which I sold on E-Bay for $150 and I kicked that into the 501. I have a post over at AVSforums with 501 promo's but I think they're 1st time buyres. I forget. (BTW) dish will send an installer to your house to hook it up for free. They won't just send the unit.
Here's the links I posted maybe they can help.
