Hi, I am planning to switch from TWC to Directv. I found a local guy who had purchased a couple HR10-250's from best buy back in November with the expectation that he would use them at his new house. Due to install issues, he can't have directv at his new house and is now selling the units. He says they're both never activated and he has all accessories although he did throw out the boxes. I'll be getting a pretty good deal... What should I expect from directv as for programming discount if I call them to activate a receiver that was purchased months ago and never activated? I would expect at least the 3 month discount and maybe free install.. Also, is there any way I can prove the units were never activated? Right now, I'm taking the seller's word. Anything else I should check? TIA BTW, the SA 8300HD from TWC with SARA O/S is HORRIBLE!!!
