I own the 510 that will be changed out tomorrow (with a 211(K)) and it has recordings on it that we haven't watched yet. After the unit gets deactivated, can I still view the recorded shows?
Hope E* has your box marked "owned" as well. They are famous for demanding you send the boxes back even when you own them...they always mysteriously end up in their system as "leased". I just went through a big fight about two owned receivers of mine. One, I was able to provide a bill of sale of for, so I won that one...but I'm now eating over $200 on a 211 that I have to send back because I couldn't provide a receipt.
Well, I'm pretty sure I own it. I bought it from them for $75 when they had a special promo about 5 or 6 years ago. I don't think it was a "Dish it Up" promo. Is there a way to tell by looking at my account online? If they want it back, it's really no big deal as I can't get much for it from what I can tell.
To send back something THEY (might, not sure) own? Not if I can help it. When I needed to have my 625 replaced, I believe they just sent me a new one and I sent the old one back and it was on their dime.
I think you'll find that the software has since been updated to prevent use of the DVR without it being "active".
thats unbelievable...even upon termination of service??? you have to pay to send back a leased box????
