    I dunno. Another money stream, perhaps? I just know once you deactivate them you'll need a new card (in most cases) to reactivate them.

    We see leased equipment sold all the time. My impression was that the leased equipment could not have been activated on any account yet but if it hadn't then it was able to be sold.

    Non-recoverable does NOT mean owned....leased is leased and will NOT be transfered...receivers that have never been activated can still be activated with an agreement just like any other upgrade....many many CSR's do not understand this fairly simple policy.....always call and ask for ACDT.....sadly I have seen some of them make mistakes also....bottom line ...ask if it is owned or non-recoverable

    How do you own instead of lease one of the newer HRs? I was under the impression that all HR22-24s were leased now. And some of the HR21s were owned instead of leased.

    If you owned a receiver and it is replaced under the Protection Plan the new receiver would still be owned. Also, some people who have owned receivers have sold them to other users. By and large though, most receivers that are activated will be leased.

    You can also call and purchase one straight from DirecTV for $499.
    Buy an HR21Pro from SS for $399.
    Or see if you can find an owned one from a former DirecTV employee.

    Directv has changed their Policy regarding Employees Owning DVRs which states they can't sell them to anyone else and if they leave the Employment of Directv it reverts to becoming a Leased DVR and has to be Returned to Directv or the Employee will be Charged Full Price for an Owned DVR.

    That still varies. I spoke to someone in the access card department team on this within the last 2 weeks and was told that they could only sell them if they were no longer employed. It does not seem to be static across the board.

    One thing I've never been clear on... I purchased a owned receiver from a member here, got a new access card, and had it activated on my account as owned (all through the access card department). I have the protection plan as well. If that DVR were to die down the road, would it be replaced with an owned receiver or does that only apply to the original purchaser?

    It will be replaced with an owned HR. How that affects the five tuner HRs is, apparently, not known yet. I've asked several times and haven't gotten an answer to that question that seems firm.

    Just so it's clear, if you deactivated an unrecoverable reciever, you can reactivate that reciever with no problem on your account. As stated above, you just can't sell it, as it is still leased.

    Thats incorrect, once a DTV employee separates employment the receivers are owned, just have to wait on the account to be switched to a regular account...while employed the receivers are owned but cannot be sold.

    That depends on the account type the employee had. With some types of accounts they receivers are supposed to be converted to leased after terminating their employment with DirecTV.


    And this is correct, a *directv* employee will keep their owned equipment.
    An employee with a third party who does work for DirecTV and has their equipment marked as owned will have their equipment converted to leased after ending employment.

    Best to speak to ACDT as always.

    So there is no confusion, these were posted as examples of who/what not to buy based on the complete mis-statement of facts as they relate to leased or owned by eBay Sellers

    Item # Removed by OP Zero Bids DirecTv H-24 700 receivers and acc!!!
    I have 3 directv h-24 700 recievers with the hookups 2 controllers and the access cards for all 3. I do not know if they work. I had been told That they are in collections but I think that they are ways around that and you can still use them. If not you still have 2 controllers and some extra cords, along with parts!
    Item # Removed by OP Zero Bids Used Direct TV H21 receiver HD
    I have called direct TV and gave them the RID and they have informed me this receiver is a leased unit and there is no outstanding balance. All that will need to be done if the unit is purchased is both the original owner and new owner will need to be on the phone so the receiver can be transfered to the new owner. The DirecTV person reassured me several times that there is no charge for the leased receiver to be transfered to a new owner.. Here is the RID if you would like to call DirecTV and verify this info.eBay bidders are smarter than lying eBay listers removed by OP

    To add to this: The more sales the listers have, the less you can trust them. This is a generality, of course. Good rule of thumb, tho.
