I thought they wouldn't activate used receivers anymore that they want you to buy a new one?
A friend of mine just got FIOS TV and is getting rid of his DirecTV DVR.
Would I be able to use it as is, or would I have to contact DirecTV to configure it?
As a similar question, if you buy a used DVR, do you have to pay the DVR service fee (~5.99/mo) if you call in and have it activated?
I'm moving next month, and if I:
1 - signed up for DTV with the free HDTV receiver, plus 2 normal receivers
2 - have them come wire my house for 3 recievers
3 - after install, return 2 of the leased receivers (save $10/mo)
4 - purchase 2 receivers on ebay (1 normal, 1 DVR)
5 - call DTV and have them activate the 2 receivers
Would I have to buy new access cards or pay a DVR service fee?
As a side note, why does DTV require purchasing new cards while DN doesn't?
