I just moved and needed to switch over to Comcast (sharing the connection with the new location's homeowner, as well as his broadband). I called DTV and had my account closed; they will send me a pre-paid for the access card, but don't care about the R15 and remote. I can store it indefinitely, but figure by the time I might be in a location where I could go back to DTV if desired there would be much better choices for receivers. So...what to do with the R15? Do indepenant folks buy them, need them? Maybe I could gut it and use the parts to build a device to see into the future like Spock did in "The City On The Edge of Forever"
