All,


I am in Northern VA & getting Direct TV installed at my new home.


Personally, I like to own my equipment, but am worried about the ever changing world of HDTV!


The box I am considering purchasing is the HR-10 250HD. Should I purchase the unit, or rent it through Direct TV & maintaint the ability to upgrade through them as the service changes?


Thanks,


Bill

You can lease the PVR-942 from Dish for $250, but you must buy the HR-10 250HD from D*. D* is currently having an offer here on the 250, so you may want to see what you can do there. I’ve said before I will never own another HD receiver just because technology changes so frequently and I change providers when it becomes necessary for different reasons. I’ve taken a $500 hit owning two different HD receivers, so for me to lease one at $250 for a couple of years works for me. I’ll leave the burden to the provider to keep me up to speed on technology changes even if means it may cost me a few $. YMMV.

Purchasing is the only option, check out the HR10-250 for $299 thread in this forum for a good deal on one though.
