Looking to switch to Comcast with a Roamio
My HR10-250 is on its last legs (tuners are dying). I've got an old DirecTV dish (dual LNB) so upgrading to the THR22 means not only buying the THR22 (and which I'll get charged as a "lease") but also upgrading the dish which may or may not be free (I suspect calling DirecTV to upgrade the dish for free will force me onto one of their Genie boxes before I can "downgrade" to a THR22).
I live in an apartment which gets Comcast and am looking to switch to them with a Roamio.
Can I buy the Roamio from a local Best Buy (or weaknees) and then just do a self-install once they activate the service or will they have to have someone comeout and install a default box and THEN I can switch out to my Roamio?
