Ditto. I paid extra receiver fees with AEP for 3-4 years, before switching to a two-tuner receiver.

I have planned to install a 622, 322, 2 each 625s, and a 311. Going to get the HD Platinum package with locals and the Sports network. Going to also install 2 each DPP 44 switches and a Super Home Node. I also would like to have my local long time retail satellite shop do everything but they are saying that their distributors can't get any 622s yet. Really sucks.
Since post 2 of this thread contains most of post 1 above- how about add the few things in post 1 here that are not in your thread, and close this one? And maybe add some DHPP info- does it really kick in after 18 months on lease? Why should we pay "insurance" when the property is owned by Dish?

Extra HD recvr fee.....$6 Per receiver after first one. Does not apply to leased units.
Dish Home Protection Plan.....$5.99
Lease Fees (first receiver on account is waived, if mutiple receiver and 1 is an HD receiver, an HD receiver will be made the primary receiver) (all leases require qualified programming and DishHD if upgraded to a Dish HD receiver)
SD Lease fee..........$5 Does not apply to owned units.
HD Lease fee..........$6 (211,411,622) Does not apply to owned units.
Those fees seem right to me, same fee, just different names as the lease fee takes the place of the extra receiver fee.jbcheshire said:navychop,
These two fee areas are in conflict, if I understand them right...
I have 3 total receivers (301, 501, & 508) all leased. I DO pay a leased fee for those extra two receivers of $5.00, which is opposite of your first sentence below...

I would hope they aren't charging you a lease fee AND and extra receiver fee.
