ok, here's a good one for you.
I used to have an HD box (SA3100HD) and a regular digital box (hooked up to ReplayTV) all on one television.
When the DVR came out, I got rid of both boxes and just had 1 box - the DVR.
I just called up to see if I can go pick up a new HD box. The rep told me this: I cannot pick up the box, it must be installed, b/c I am not trading it with the DVR, but adding it in additon to.
That will cost $30 for install.
Also, my DVR will go up from $7 to $9, b/c I got it on special, and as soon as you make any service changes, they take specials away.
And, the HD box will be an additional $7 for the box, which I expected.
So, it looks like I am not going to do this. Because of their backwards policy, they will not be getting more money from me.
Doesn't this seem like a dumb policy?
Also, the rep said they expect the HD DVR first quarter - same as usual. Hopefully, it will be nearer to Jan, as it looks like I won't have HD until I get the HD DVR and trade it in for my regualr DVR.
