I called a couple weeks ago to inquire about upgrading an R-15 to an HD-DVR. I was quoted $199 + shipping.

Is that the going rate these days, or do I have any shots at better deals? I have 3 HD-DVRs already - not sure if that makes a difference or not (and I got two of those for free).

When was the last time you upgraded? If its been a while you should get a better deal
But 199 is the "normal" rate....if i had to pay that I'd get a HR24 from Solid signal. With D* you could get a HR24 or you could get a 23 or 22

maybe wait a month when the HR34 (the 5 tuner unit) is available to current subs. Maybe they have a deal on that (399 regular rate right now but ya gotta buy it at Solid signal or another retailer)

My last (free) upgrade was April of 2008.

I'd love to hold out for the HR34, but we bought our son an HDTV and that thing looks just awful with the SD-DVR - depends how long I can hold out. :)

Maybe I'll buy the HR24, and then swap an HR34 for my old HR20 down the road...
