So - DirecTV offered to "flip the switch" for WHDVR (ie no upgrade fee), despite my lack of DECA. Asked for a note on my account
Got the parts off of ebay reasonably cheaply - added a 2-way splitter as I can go from 1x4 to 2x2 and squeeze a little more signal through.
Still going to try for a cheapie Genie drop-ship upgrade, but will probably try this soon enough.

When I tried the first time to add WHDVR (when they first started to charge for it) they required me to change my base programming package because I am still on Total Choice. So I would not only had the $3/mo WHDVR fee but also the increase in base package fee (the closest equivalent to what I have is the xtra+) which made it like $10/mo total, so I just said forget it. If they are ever willing to forgo the programming switch I am would be interested in this myself.
