I recently had an old R15-500 die on me. I have the protection plan and this receiver was owned not leased. My question is, when the CR told me they were sending me a new DVR he said I would have to send them the old DVR. I asked, since it was owned, was that necessary? He told me that the new one they send me would not be leased, but owned. Was he telling me the truth? What should I do? I really don't want the old one but I hate the idea of having to drive about thirty miles to the city, to mail the old one back to them. Thanks for your help in advance!!
