    I received this today from D* and jumped on the offer - should be ready to zipper all my units soon. Hopefully D* will share this with some other forum members.

    Loyalty just got you another DVR.

    Just got mine. Unfortunately, they are sending an installer out and wouldnt take no for an answer. Such a waste of their time since I have all the lines run already.

    Being a DTV subscriber for over seven such email for me.
    I guess I don't subscribe to enough stuff.

    Got the e-mail too, but what I really want from them (for the thousands of dollars I've spent and am committed to spend) is help with an HDTivo. No such luck though.

    Call me fickle, but I'm seriously thinking of visiting my local comcast office again.

    Can you order more than one on this deal? I just ordered one, can I go back through and order again?

    No (I tried and someone else did too). It will let you go through the entire process the second time, but then when you commit the order it tells you something like, Thank you for your interest in this, but you have already participated in this offer in the last 365 days so are not eligible.

    I am tempted to order one on my friends accounts to see if I can activate at my house.

    If I have a r10-250 and a std unit in a bedroon, would I have need for one of these? also, can I assume if I hook it up there will be another 5 a month fee?

    Yes- 5 more bucks a month. Put it in the bathroom or garage. Better yet, I'll use it if you don't want to.

    I ordered mine online tonight with no problem. Then, I called DirecTV and canceled the installer. They had no issue with that, stating "installation is not part of the offer anyway and not required."

    Just call and cancel the installer when you receive the unit.

    It was a 70hr R10, not a 40gig older unit like I expected. SO no hacks on it without a prom mod. I guess I'll trade my parents for their old DVR 80 to solve that problem. I installed and activated the unit this morning and cancelled the "mandatory" install. Still a great bargain and the larger hard drive was a bonus. Let's see if we all get R10's.

    Would blu-ray dvdr make this obsolete? Keep in mind I have an h10-250 and really am in unfamiliar territory.

    Are they using west dig drives in those R10's or max's?

    There's a poll thread here, too. Everyone should post what they get into one thread so we don't have to read three different threads to see what people are getting. BTW, I got an SD-DVR40 yesterday. :D

    I read one of the other threads about this & I've not been able to get the order placed. I get all the way to the "submit order" screen & I get an error message. Would there be a reason that this offer isn't availble for anyone?


    ETA: Just tried it again & I get "We are sorry, but there was a system error. Please try again later."

    I've used two different credit cards & I get the same error. :thumbsdown:
