I'm an existing Dish Network customer and have been with them for 1 year. I have another 6 mos under contract. I have the DVRAdvantage 200 with HD essentials. My first and only receiver is a VIP722. I am looking to add a second receiver. I called Dish and they can get me a SD receiver for $50 installed ($5 /mo lease) or HD receiver for $100 installed ($7 /mo lease). Is there a way to get them to waive the fee and just ship the box, maybe just pay for shipping? I also have the option to have a dvr on the second box. Since I have the DvrAdvantage plan, will I be charged a dvr fee on the second box or just the lease fee?

Thanks!

When I wanted another HD DVR from E* all I did was call them. I currently had only a 622,and I wanted a 612. They were asking $75 , I said can you do any better, They said hold on ,few seconds later it was down to $45. I said thats great I've tried and tried to get an HD dvr out of D* for years for for $99. Let alone $45 and I couldn't . They said hold on a minute. They came back and said we'll upgrade you a 612 for free or a 722 for $45 including shipping if you sign up auto pay for the rest of your commitment. I said Done Deal! You never know what might happen!
I've fought and fought to get any good deal out of D* as a current customer of five years,and got no where. I was a customer of E* for 8 months and got a free HD DVR. Total invested with E* for 2 HD rooms and 1 SD room $49 . Total invested with D* with one HD dvr,1 SD dvr and 1 SD receiver $347. Thats just last year alone. Needless to say ,I kicked D* to the curb! Paying D* $175 to get out of my contract was worth every penny in the long run.

I tried but I signed up for the Auto pay to get my 612 for free ,so they wouldn't let me, Because I was already signed up for auto pay. I would love to get it!

It technically is already setup. Dish just took the existing cabling for Cable and disconnected that and connected to the Dish. So I just need the receiver. I already have the cable run
