    I've had an old r15-100 in my basement for 2 or 3 years. Works fine but we needed hd receivers to get locals when we got them.

    Directv never did send a box to ship it back as they said they would.

    What should I do with this thing? I'm assuming it's valueless on eBay or whatever.

    Thanks!

    Take your choice. You can either use it as a paperweight or doorstop.

    Check your local ordinances and dispose of electronic waste appropriately.

    It is still a usable SD DVR. You might offer it in the buy/sell/trade forum of this web site, although I doubt there is much value for it. If you do give it away or sell it, you should retain the access card. The buyer would need a new card regardless.

    Leased status won't change regardless of the recovery status. So if this was a leased receiver it cannot be sold.

    True, but it is possible this is an owned unit. If the OP does choose to sell/give it away, he might check with DirecTV first to confirm the status (owned or leased), as should the buyer/receiver of the unit.
