Dang, someone gave me an IRD without a RID today. :(


I hooked it up this morning because I wanted to see what it was like "back in the day." It is an RCA DSS receiver, a DRD102RW. I have three things to say about it.

1. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

2. The card swap trick from an active receiver doesn't work, and I don't really care anyway, I just thought I would try. I would rather use the receiver I borrowed the card from to try it. It acts like they have locked out the ability to change the cards; good for them.

3. Old and clunky, but you can still scroll through the guide as fast as you can with an HR2x! (x != 4 that is)
Slimline 5 with SWM-16
Wireless DECA
HR34-700!
R22-200 Leased
Owned H25-700 and H24-700 off and packed for the move.

Hee hee! I love this thread!!

I think it's safe to assume that what happens when you call DirecTV to get something done depends about 30% on DirecTV policy and 70% on who the particular CSR is you get connected to!! I.E. if you don't get what you want, hang up and call back an hour later.... :D
