I was given a HR20-700. Do not have directv service. Is there any way to configure this unit to act as an ota tuner only?

Not that I am aware of. Without Directv programming the tuners are deactivated.

Where did you get it?
It's more than likely a leased unit and should be returned to DIRECTV.

It is likely a leased unit, but the early ones were purchased. Also, if it was to replace an HR10 it would be owned, also.

When were the early ones purchased ?

I obtained my HR20-700 in 2006, there was no option to directly purchase when I got it.

I'm not sure exactly, but the first ones were available for purchase. That is, IIRC! Come to think of it, maybe I am mixing them up with the early H20's. I am sure about the ones that were exchanged for the owned HR10 units also being owned.

Commercial customers can still buy them. So it could have come from a commercial account.
