I switched from DirectTV to cable over the weekend. The gentleman I spoke to over the phone, in a plethora of generosity, allowed me to keep the DVR...all I must do is send to him the little plastic card from the slot by the reset button. This seemed awfully nice of him...at the time. I was quickly disillusioned about this Corporate Kindness:hurah: because, even though I disconnected the DVR before service was cut off, I could ony access recorded programs for about one day after the disconnection. I couldn't even pull up a menu--it only showed a blurry message about searching for the satellite.... I am wondering if this "gift" of a DVR is due to the Class Action suit I read about in one of the threads on this site. Anyway, my question is this: can I do anything with this DVR? Is it even worth selling for parts? It seems such a waste...terribly expensive trash that I, with my bad back, will have to lug 3 stories down to the dumpster.:nono2: I could not find this question in any of the threads; this is my first time on the site so please be kind if this has been covered before but I just did not see it, and thanks.
