THR22 to own?? Where to buy?

My HR10-250 is constantly resetting. I am comtemplating getting the THR22 to replace it. The people at Directv told me that I could get a new one but it would be a lease. I could buy it for $399 but I could probably find it cheaper on Amazon. Everyone I contacted (weakness, DVR upgrade etc..) said that it they only have leased one's. Does anyone know where to buy these elusive sets?

You can't own the receiver, only lease it. That's the only deal available.

I wonder why the tech at DTv told you could.. but thanks for the info.


Are the THR22 better than the HR10-250's? It might pay me to just that fixed?

Well, the THR22 can view and record HD satellite content, the HR10 can no longer do that. Otherwise the capabilities of these boxes is pretty close.

I see no advantage to buying these over leasing.
