    Whole House DVR Clarification

    Exactly - the wiring was run back in 2001 or so when 2 wires off the dish was common I went up on the roof and the LNB says SWM on it, so I think I am set there - the installer's job should be easy ;-)

    Whole House DVR Clarification

    Thanks for the help, guys - I called last night and ordered the new receivers. I decided to actually add to TV's, going from 1 to 3 with a Genie, a mini and the 24. Now I want to make sure I have the correct wiring in place so the installer does not have to hack apart my house ;-) Followup...

    Whole House DVR Clarification

    Yeah I did a quick search and can buy one right now for $170 if I had to - not necessarily a deal breaker but I'll take my chances and see what they send for free first. How does that work, though? If you have an HR34 and buy a HR44, to they make you de-activate the 34 when you activate the 44?

    Whole House DVR Clarification

    Hi Guys, I currently have 1 TV with an HR24-500 and want to add a second TV in the basement AND upgrade to a Genie system. I have read SEVERAL threads here that advise people to keep their HR24 vs. going to the Genie Minis. I like this approach as it gives me extra tuners and does not force me...

    Costco Rebate - How does it arrive?

    I signed up for DirecTV last week using the Costco web site in order to get the $180 rebate. So has anybody actually received the rebate? How long did it take and was there a way to check on it? I am a little concerned because I have received nothing from Costco on this - is that typical? The...

    Fees to Change Programming

    Thanks, Chip. DISH charged a fee once when I dropped the premium channels that came 'free' with the package - even though it was before the end of the free time. It appears to be impossible to NOT take these 'freebies' on the web site but as long as I can drop them later it's all good. Rob

    Fees to Change Programming

    I am switching back to DirecTV and am assembling my package and have questions about fees they may charge in the future when I try to remove the "free" offers they include. Does DirecTV charge a fee to change programming to remove premium channels, Sunday Ticket or to change base packages? The...
