I just used my Protection Plan to have my dead HR!0-250 replaced, however the Protection Plan people were unable to tell me what they would replace it with. Do you think they'll replace it with an HR10-250 or an HR20-700?
You will get a hr20-100 or a hr20-700, after it is installed you can call and request a new dish. Make sure they do not increase your commitment when you activate the replacement HR20. Units replaced under the Protection Plan are not supposed to add to the commitment.

I've got the same issue. I have an HR10 that is acting funky right now. I have the protection plan. But I also have the new dish already. If I call when/if the HR10 dies, will they just mail me a new one or will an installer have to come out to do a 3 minute job? When this happened two years ago they just mailed me one and I mailed the broken one back to them.
the fed-ex'd mine and told me I did not have to return the HR10, was supposed to have a new dish installed last saturday but the "installer up and quit without mentioning it to anyone" - they are due out on 9/1 between 8 and 12 again

i reread this thread and didnt see an answer:

has anyone 'replaced' Hdtivo with a hr20 and then gotten a free new 5lnb dish when you call and say, i cant see the new channels? (i dont care about a 2 yr commitment).

Also, when they do 'verify' that your unit is bad and will send you a new one, do they turn off the 'broken' unit right away?
Yes, had one of my HR10 go bad, they mailed a HR20 in it's place, wife hooked it up while I was in San diego, I called D* and talked to them, explained the situation and they upgraded my dish to a 5 LNB and installed the correct multi-switch at no charge.

Here is a question... If you "own" your HR10-250, and paid $999 for it like I did, when you contact DTV, and say your HR10-250 is "acting up" will the HR20 they send you be a "leased" or "owned" unit??

Then the next question is, do they "ship" it or does the "directv repair guy" drop it off at the door?
1. the replaced ones where leased, I got to keep teh hr10's
2. they were drop shipped to me, had to call later to get a 5 lnb and switch installed at no cost

I do have the PP, no charge for shipping
