    Oh the OP can totally dispose of it or recycle it. D* will even tell him to dispose of it or recycle it. It just can't be activated on another account if it changes hands.

    Can it be re-activated on the same account?

    Oh god, how many times do I have to say this. It can be sold, activated on another account, whatever. It is now considered "owned" not leased. Jeez louise. I know because I have done it!

    I realize this thread is old but I have a question about this. I have an hr34 that directv didn't want back. I had it for around 3 years works fine it's just a little sluggish, so is it considered owned now or leased? If I wanted to sell it am I free to do so?

    Even if they don't want it back, it's leased.

    I don't think I've heard the words "just a little sluggish" describing it lately :)

    I'd be a little leary about selling it or getting rid of it. Wasn't that long ago that we thought many models didn't have to be returned and now they do.

    Yeah, far too many different things being said by D* CSRs to trust anything they say. Stick it on a shelf somewhere. If nothing happens in a year or so, then dump it.

    They wanted the card only, were supposed to send me a return envelope to send it back. This was almost a couple weeks ago never got anything.

    I have several access cards sitting in a cabinet waiting for envelopes...been there for quite a while. I also have a couple HRs that await boxes. I gave up on calling them.
