    RID is clear so I am going to try and pick it up. I was checking on eBay (I know bad place for leased units that think they are owned) but it at least gives an idea of prices and it is a good fair price.

    PS does an H24 require a BBC or is it internal????????

    Thanks all for your time & Cheers

    H24 does require a BBC if it is not on a SWM system.

    Thanks good to know, pretty sure I have some extras laying around as I don't have a SWiM setup. Will need a new access card also unless I can talk them into activating the existing card.

    I don't think you'll get them to do that, so that's another $20.

    You will need a new access card, unless the unit is brand spanking new and has never been activated.

    Call ACT dept, not regular CSR, they could do activation of existing card on your account ... sometimes :) if you'll be gentle and persistent with them

    Access card department is who will send you the card too which takes about a week. They just won't reactivate cards anymore.

    LOL, I know sometimes very rarely though and if you get the right person it can be done. I can live with the 20 bucks if it boils down to it.

    The tv is a fairly nice Sony 32 that had screen flicker, it was given to me. Installed a new main board which fixed that @ 60 dollars.
    H24 @ 125
    Access card @ 20
    So 205 and no contract.
    For a bedroom setup it should work out pretty decent.

    I would call for start, spending 10-30 min in pleasant conversation sitting on a couch ... why not ?

    that was a good deal, wish I would have had the need for an HR34 as I have a spare drive laying around. The location I was putting the box just did not require a DVR.

    I will be looking for a HR ?? sometime in the coming months though for our family room setup.
