I have left DTV just getting too expensive.

I have an owned HR20-700 that was working great when we left DTV two weeks ago.

Is this box worth anything?

If DirecTV says you now own it. It's worthless to you without a DirecTV subscription.

You could take the 300/320 GB hard drive out and use it in a computer.
DirecTV since '96, Waivers for ABC, CBS, NBC, & Fox, HR23-700 & HR24-500/AM21, using ethernet based MRV.

But it may be of value to someone else right?

There are people on this board who would pay you money for a working HR20-700, yes. They would want to verify its RID number with the Access Card department at DirecTV first, though, to assure it was an owned model.

Sure it is. Go to ebay and search for other HR** boxes for sale.
Any smart potential buyer would want the box ID# from you before purchase to check with Directv that it is actually owned and not leased.

Edit: Carl beat me to it!
One more thing, are you positive it is owned? Latety Directv has not been asking for leased HR20 boxes back when customers cancel service or are replacing it with another model.

Just be careful. My understanding is Directv does not want the HR20s back but but no one else will be able to activate them because they are still considered leased (assuming they were leased receivers in the first place).

Shades228 or Wahooq may be able to confirm that is still the policy.

I would hang on to it another month or two. Despite being told by several people at DirecTV they didn't want my HR20 back, I was charged several hundred dollars in non-return fees a month or so after I cancelled. Better safe than sorry.

I would hang on to it too. I made a huge mistake. After 7 years, I left DTV and went to Dish for PAC-12 Network. HD programming is awful, the guide interface and recording are awful. The wife was about to divorce me and she rarely watches TV. I called DTV to take me back (felt like I was calling my EX). DTV paid for half of my cancellation fee, New equipment, same prices as a new subscriber and NFL Sunday Ticket. While the installer was here and I still had my old equipment he called corporate and they let me keep my HR24-300.
