My parents are upgrading to DirecTV HD w/o DVR. They are both in their 80's and I am buying the TV's and will have to pay for the upgrade as well. They currently have 2 SD TV's with DirecTV at present and they just got satellite in October 2010. I called Direct and they want $258 to upgrade with 2 HD receivers. That irritated me to have to pay that much. Is this for real? Is there a better way?
