Bichon, sears is hardly going to throw the receiver out. They will just repack it and sell it again. It's not like I would break it and return it..
My 721 is the 2nd one I had, the other was RA'd from Dish. So I kind of do have a 721 that was already used and broken. Would it be different if I bought it, decided I didn't like it and return it. I wasn't the one at sears or any other store that decided to have a money back gurantee if you don't like something.
I just bought a ceiling fan the other day from Home Depot, last one they had, boxed looked like a return, but I figured it had a warranty so I got it. It was missing some hardware so I went to another HDepot and they gladly gave me the hardware I was missing. This fan was an obvious return. Think you never bought something that was a repackaged return and in this case obviously never checked to make sure nothing was missing.
If you have any other ideas I'm open to them. There is a place that rents stuff, HD rear projectors being one of them. Not sure how they make money. It's a $2200 TV, It's like $180 for a month to rent, weekly is about $10 more, but it needs a HD receiver. I don't want to buy a receiver I can't use, because I definitly don't have the $$ for a new HD set.
This is why I posted the question, what are my options??
