I've spent all night on the phone with several DN account reps. Finally got them to offer me an 811 upgrade for $25, which will be refunded upon shipping back one of my old receivers. Thanks to everyone who posted here http://www.highdefforum.com/archive/index.php/t-801.html

you definitely gave me the ammo i needed. =D

my intent is to get the box and use it for off-sat locals, and cancel the hd pack (yes, i'm a cheap bastard)

anyway, they said since the 811 would be leased, i'd have to keep the hd pack on our account, and that if i ever dropped the hd pack, they'd deactivate the receiver.

is that just a load of bull? can they actually kill a receiver?

any input would be greatly appreciated.

thanks,
cash

It's technically more accurate to say they kill your security card... but yes, they can.
