Petee_C - Like others have said, I can keep my 500 - it just won't work for HD anymore.
I just happen to be on vacation this week and someone was home when they called.
I'll have to see just what I was charged for it. I could swear the rep said it was going to cost me $49.00 plus I'd get the PPV credit. I never followed up on it, because I need the receiver anyway, but It'll be interesting to see what I get charged for it. I was expecting $99 as stated above.
