I was sent the following this morning. Its information about the HD rebate, in addition I have been sent a rebate form, however it seems to be a $100 rebate on an DirecTV DVR. (But I have attached it for your benefit anyways) :)

--- o HD-DVR customers must have active DVR service.

Customers in Detroit who activated an HD receiver or HD-DVR after Sep 16, 2005 and are disappointed they didn't receive $200 HD Rebate:

* For HD:
--- o Escalate request to Credit Team.
--- o Credit Team will apply $200 to customer's account.
* For HD-DVR:
--- o Verify in Rio if customer is eligible for $100 DVR Rebate.
--- o If customer submitted DVR Rebate form for the same receiver, and was eligible for DVR Rebate, then the CSR will issue $100 credit to make up the difference between the $100 DVR Rebate and the $200 HD Rebate.

How about this senario

OK, In Detroit DMA
Have a HD-DVR (from VE)
$200 credit from retention
$100 rebate pending
Installed Sept 3rd

Questions would be...
Am I eligible for the full $200 if I purchase a H20?
Can I get it from Robert?
Will this screw up my trade on the upcoming 20-250 HD-DVR?

The only reason I would do this is that if the DVR comes out in early 06 the weather could delay a switch over. I have OTA locals from Toledo, but no UPN and possibly CBC.

Hum....that doesn't sound right. Maybe they give rebate amount in credit on the account. I never have dealt with rebates from D* though.
