    So, I guess we might be the only ones! Whatever...

    I thought it was going to be $199, but it was $99 plus tax.:)
    Also get a new $5.00 fee for using Tivo rather the DTV brand. :rolleyes:
    They will waive the HD fee because we're long-time and paperless.:)

    We can keep our existing SD TiVo for $6/month if we want an additional 2 tuners elsewhere in the house. At least that could be a backup.

    Let us know how it goes. I hope you're actually getting a Tivo, though.

    I don't know. But I don't think the installers in Seattle have the THR22 Tivos yet. Hopefully I'm wrong. Let us know.

    My installer yesterday showed up w/ a used/reconditioned HR receiver. His supervisor had to go to the warehouse and 8 hrs later I had my THR22. Of course, the installer had never seen a Tivo so I did the entire set-up except for the activation.

    Well...that's what was ordered, however I will definitely ask the installer when he/she arrives. I'd be really ticked off if I went through an install to discover that it wasn't the new HD TiVo.

    Thanks for the head's up.

    We had our install in Seattle yesterday. The installer didn't have the HD Tivo and had no idea it existed. In fact, he tried to sell us on the DTV HDR instead! Fortunately once we explained the situation he called around and found the THR22 in a warehouse in Bellevue, so we were able to complete the install once he picked it up.
    Hopefully by now the local installers are starting to get the message.

    My installer showed up and had no idea I was supposed to get a Tivo. I told him I didn't pay $200 for a DirecTv dvr and he called in and arranged to go pick up my Tivo at the warehouse. 30 minutes later, my Tivo was installed. He said he was only trained last week, but he appears to have done a good job
