Well, the 61.5 dish was free as well as the cabling, and the LNB in the 500. I did provide both SW21s though. So when Dish gives you something "FREE" does it mean they gave it to you or are loaning it to you
That raises the question about DHP users that upgrade to SuperDish. They take back the Dish 500 that was on DHP, but now I'm making a new commitment, just like a non DHP customer, does the SuperDish then fall outside the DHP hardware?
Hmmm... I have a spare Dish 500 with one of those infamous faulty DishPro twin LNBFs. I guess I'd better ask first and pony up the spare before the guy tries to take down my aimed Dish 500. If he doesn't have two DP+44 switches for me, I'll need that dish so I can keep a 61.5/110/119 configuration on one of my two DP34's. At least he won't have to give me a DP34 with the superdish because I paid big bucks for those a year ago.
If they'll come out and do a one-for-one swap of a Superdish for my Dish 500 (including DP 34), I'll consider that a "free" (with one-year commitment, of course) upgrade, and that's OK. I can't imagine that they'd want my 300, but if they did, I would fight to keep it. If they leave the 500 also, that's even better.
