When I lived with my parents I had a Series 2 direcTv Tivo in my room. When I moved out we unplugged and stored it in one of our old rooms. We never discontinued the service but it hasnt been turned on in a couple years. My question is, as long as it hasn't been damamged and the hard drive still works, will i still be able to get a signal on it? Or does direcTV know that it hasnt been turned on for a couple years and stops the card from receiving a signal? My mom wants to put a TV in her office and my parents still have availble coax to the dish so i figured i could hook up my old receiver for her.
