    Anyone looking to sell one of these Directv Receivers. I can find them new for $199 so the price has to be lower then that.

    You might still be able to get one from DirecTV for $99. They've been running a Family & Friends deal for awhile now. Enter the coupon code "ffdvr" when you order online.

    Isn't that for only New Customers? I'm looking to replace my regular Hughe's Receiver.

    I have one that was purchased from RC Willey's a few months ago. I'll sell for $199 shipped. No contract commitments.

    You are the man. I can't believe Directv accepted that. It is a Friend and Family Promotion for $99 and I thank you for that info. I ordered mine today, but now I have other issues like trying somehow to run a 2nd line into the bedroom for the dual recording feature. The Tivo will still work with just 1 input from the satellite right?

    Yep, you just won't be able to record one channel and watch another channel simultaneously or record two channels simultaneously. You need that 2nd line for that.

    Steve,

    The $99 FFDVR promotion includes professional installation, so they should run the second line with no problem. Good luck.

    I have a question on this deal. I cuurently have a stand alone Tivo and subscribe for monthly service. If i am reading this offer correctly...the Tivo service is free as long as I have total choice. Can i then just cancel my 12.95 monthly Tivo fee??

    I thinks its Total Coice Premeire that it is free. With the regular Total coice it is $4.95 for the Tivo Service. As far as canceling the $12.95 fee for your Stand alone I'm not sure how that works. The $4.95 is for the Directv Tivo Service and I'm not sure if that would give you Tivo on your standalone Unit. You might want to check out Tivocommunity.com for an answer.

    Probably worth enough to get 2 D-Tivos. If you are a multi-DirecTV receiver household, it's cost effective for every one of them to be a DirecTivo since the $4.95 fee covers ALL DirecTivos on your account.

    If its as easy as it was for the older stand-alone models then there is really nothing to it. Just follow the directions..
