    Recovery Kit Box

    In my experience, it takes 3 to 4 weeks for the kit to arrive. In fact I received a kit yesterday for a receiver that I deactivated on May 24. You will know when they send the recovery kit because it will appear on your order list.

    I live on LI and I get HD versions of channels 2,4,5,7,9 and 11. AN HD version of 13 should be available later this year. All the other locals are SD.
