Default Second receiver fee is what?

I was told that it was $10 with vcr fee of $3 for 612, or $17 with 722K.

I upgraded to adding another room with the 612, which was done on Monday with a bad receiver, and is being replaced today, Weds.

I want to be able to pause a show on Sat. 1 and also do it on Sat. 2, so I can go back and forth between them, but found out you can't do that on the 612.

I called in to see if I could replace my 722K with the 922, which requires a $200 deposit( though I was told you never get the deposit back, so it isn't really a deposit), and then use the 722k instead of the 612. Since I have never used it to control 2 T.V.'s, and never will.

The CSR did not know what she was talking about. First she said it was $6 for a second receiver, period, not $14. Then she said it was $14 for the second receiver, period. So which is it?

If I can get the 922 for my main receiver and use the 722k instead of the 612, for $10 extra dollars a month, I want to do that, but if I can't, then forget the 922.

Also, on that $200 deposit, do you ever get it back?

As far as the $200, I have never heard it being referred to as a deposit fee, it has always been an upgrade fee and no you do not get that back (ever). The other fees are the same, there is a $6 dvr (not vcr) fee charged on the entire account no matter how many dvrs you have, the secondary receiver and all after that are charged an additional receiver fee, also dual tuner receiver's with a second output are charged a tuner (does not matter if you hook them up to be used or not). If you switch out the 612 for the 922, your monthly fees with not change, but you have the upfront upgrade fee of $200.

There is a $6 DVR fee for the account when you have any DVR receiver, with a 922 on the account, the DVR fee is $10 (so you would see at least a $4 increase adding a 922 to your account).

The 922 does normally have a one time $200 upgrade charge (I wouldn't call it a deposit since it's not refundable).

Monthly Additional Receiver fees:

$7 for a solo receiver (any solo, e.g 211&311)
$10 for a solo DVR receiver (a DVR receiver that only outputs video to one TV e.g. 612)
$14 for a duo receiver (one receiver that can control two separate TV's e.g. 222&322)
$17 for a duo DVR receiver (A DVR that can control two separate TV's e.g. 625&722K)

Going with a 922 and 612 would be $10 for the DVR fee, and $10 for the additional 612 on the account.

Going with a 922 and 722K would be $10 DVR fee, and $17 for the 722k on the account.

I agree they are steep prices but my thing is, if you want quality equipment then you got to pay quality price.

Chevy Cavalier = non quality

Cadillac = quality

And my sister owns a Cavalier haha

That's the one thing I do not like about Dish...DirecTV did not charge equipment fees until after the 3rd equipment...I think it's absurd to pay $7 for an HD receiver...

quit complaining, I have Time Warner Cable, and they charge $14.95 for an additional rcvr and $9.95 for the first one

If I'd have the opportunity to get Dish, I'd switch in a heart beat

I have one HD receiver. I would like to have a second HD receiver. No need for a dvr. What would be the total additional charge? Is there a "mirroring" charge and a second receiver charge?

Thanks!

Depends on what HD receiver you currently have and what additional receiver do you want, 211 or 222?

Garys, I have the VP211k. I want a second one. Will there be a monthly "mirroring" charge and a second receiver monthly fee, or just a second receiver monthly fee?

Thanks!

With 2 211's, second one would be $7 per month.

As garys stated, the receiver fee for another 211k would be $7 per month. There isn't a monthly mirroring charge but there is an installation charge to mirror 2 TVs ($50). If you have further questions, please let me know. Thanks.
