The slimline is the primary HD dish, but there is always a chance you could get a silver HR20 instead of the black HR21.

Usually it's what the installer has on his truck, but it doesn't hurt to call ahead and insist if you have a color preference.

It's my understanding the HR 21-700 is the latest techno wise, and if you want HD locals OTA, be sure to ask them for an AM 21 in the deal- it's free for new sign ups.

You can insist but that doesn't change anything. You'll get what the installer has bouncing around in the back of the truck at the time.

The other option is to head down to Best Buy and pick out the receiver yourself. Don't know for certain if that works for a new customer, but that's what I did for my HR21. :)

Mr Direct TV would give them away, but his wife won't let'em

I would love to trade my HR21 to the HR20. I am on my 3rd HR21 and it still doesn't work. Thank God I have the protection plan.
