When I went through the new customer process on the webpage (obviously not signed in) it showed a price of $99.

I think almost anyone could call in and argue with a csr until they check with their "manager" and get the HDDVR for $99.

Does anyone know what i can do to make sure i get the specific one..?
i want the HR20-700 model...
From what I've read, you can request a particular model, but they cannot guarantee what the installer will have in stock to bring you. Some have good luck, others don't.

I called to sign up tonight and they gave me two hd-dvr's w/ install for $25. 2 year commitment of course and i signed up for the hd dvr plus package. I was expecting to have to argue to get the hd-dvrs for free.

It's really a good deal for new customers to get free or deeply discounted hardware. However, it would also be nice if some of us 10 year + dedicated subscribers could get a break.

Oops, guess I did! Got the AM21 for free.

I ordered 2 of the same but they wouldn't budge off the $99+$199. Oh well.

Here's the $100 price drop ad on DirecTV's site.....
DIRECTV: HD DVR Receiver

It doesn't say anything about only applying to new customers.

I already have an HR20 upstairs. Do you think I can add another one to my HT for $99?

And for those of you with 2 HD-DVR's, is there an additional DVR fee for more than 1 DVR per house?

That $100 price drop in the ad was the old price drop at the start of the year from $299 to $199.
