I get it. D* receivers & DVRs are leased. Question: how far back does this apply? Wasn’t their some sort of 1 March 2006 cutoff date? I still have the original receivers (SD, no DVR) that I “purchased” from Circuit City around 1999 – 2000. Don’t recall the model numbers. One allows you to see a thumbnail of the program while viewing the guide, the other one does not. Four years ago, I upgraded to a DVR. D* did not ask for, nor did I return a receiver. I did not expand from two sets to three. I disconnected a receiver, installed a DVR and never thought twice about it. I don’t think my original purchase required a service contract. I could be mistaken though. Do I own the two original receivers? Do I own the 10-year-old antenna? I know I don’t own the DVR. Anyway, I’m tired of paying $78/month for SD TV (no movie/premium channels) on superseded equipment in two rooms, while newbies get a much better deal, so D* is about to get the boot. Just trying to figure out what I’ll have to ship back. Thanks.
