    My current D* commitment expires at the end of this month and I just bought another R-10 from ValueElectronics (great transaction BTW). Now Im not sure if I should

    A. Mail in the 100.00 rebate and re-up for 2 years

    B. Just pay the full price for the R-10 and have no commitment.

    There are advantages either way but after hearing what D* has in store for the next few months (i.e. rate hikes) Im not sure which is the best move.

    Thoughts?

    You don't have a choice.


    The Rebate is not tied to the 2 Year commitment...

    They are independent of one another.
    Just activating an "advanced product" which the R10 is... you will be re-upping for 2 years.

    I already called this morning and told them since Im not (maybe not) using the 100.00 rebate I didnt want the 2 year commitment. The CSR said they will waive that if the reabte isnt used.

    If you read the agreement, at least the one I got with the R-15, it says that you can pay the "fine" or return the equipment in lieu of the "fine".

    If I purchase a used DTivo (say a DSR7000), am I automatically re-upped for two more years upon activation?

    Yes, rebate or not its 2 years. I called retention to see if they would offer 1 year if I didnt take the 100.00 rebate and they said its 2 years only. I did get the standard 10.00 off for 6 months. So that coupled with the 100.00 rebate I guess I can live with a 2 year agreement.
