Question about suspending Directv service - will DVR's still work?
I am thinking about suspending my Directv service for a while (I understand you can do it for up to 6 months). Unfortunately, I am in area (Portland, OR) where Directv still does not carry my regional sports station (Comcast Sports Net NW) - so I need to switch to Comcast TV for a few months. I don't want to turn off Directv, as I've been a long-time & happy customer - and don't want to lose my status.
I was wondering if you guys could help me with 2 questions: 1) any pitfalls or heads-up on anything I should know about in terms of suspending service (seems pretty straight forward); and 2) MOST IMPORTANTLY - will I still be able to access things that I have recorded on my DVRs (HR20-700's) ... even when my account is suspended and the DVR's are NOT connected to the satellite? I tested by just disconnecting the two satellite cables, and it seemed to still work.

I know if you cancel, the dvr no longer works, but I'm not sure if that's the same for a suspension.BTW, my name is Chip, Raoul5788 is just a screen name
