    After your order has been placed; does any info relative to the order appear in your online account statement. Ordered Friday and got varied status but nothing shows in the online account under "action since last statement"

    Mine didn't. You can go to the View Order Number screen listed under My Equipment on the main page, and then view the Order Details for that order.

    I just ordered one of the FREE TiVo DVRs from DirecTV.

    Can I call them and request a non-R10 TiVo DVR?

    Also in my order confirmation e-mail I noticed that by ordering the DVR I am agreeing to a $5.99 DVR monthly fee. That's a $1 more then I pay now. Has anyone noticed if their rates went up? :thumbsdown:

    Offer for existing residential customers only with accounts in good standing, as determined by DIRECTV in its sole discretion.

    Applicable taxes not included in system price.

    Within 30 days of equipment purchase you agree to activate the DIRECTV DVR service ($5.99/mo.). In certain markets, programming and pricing may vary.

    Limited time offer expires 2/28/2006 or while supplies last.

    DIRECTV DVR service fee is $5.99/mo. and covers every DVR in your home. The DVR service fee is waived for customers subscribing to TOTAL CHOICE PREMIER programming.

    Rates are supposedly going up on March 1 anyway, including a $1 increase in the DVR fee for anyone who is currently only paying $4.99/month. This would put everyone with one or more D* DVRs at $5.99/month for the DVR fee.

    Ok .. that makes me feel better about the increase. I thought the lower fee was grandfathered for old customers and only new customers paid the higher fee.

    unless of course you subscribe to Total Choice Premier service, all DVR/Tivo fees are waived even when the rates go up to $5.99 on March 1st. ;)
