Access DVR'd programs w/ suspended account

Because of an upcoming move and some complications regarding phone/TV/Internet access at the new residence, I am contemplating suspending my DirecTV account for a few months until I can sort out the situation. Assuming that I suspend the account and the DVR is not connected to a satellite dish or a phone line, will I still be able to access the existing recordings that I have saved on the DVR? The DVR is an HR21-700 if that matters.
I would think you can, you may have to press exit during startup to get to the list

Having said that, at some point, the current activation will expire, and the box will lock itself down. Usually this takes 2-3 weeks, but there's no way to know where you are in the cycle.
