Seems more convenient to just buy a new camcorder that was destroyed during a drunken escapade on Amazon in 30 seconds vs. spending 15 - 30 minutes+ going through PP. Since you've been with DirecTV since 1995, that comes out to a measly $5800 for the PP alone! Imagine how much more booze and women you could have purchased! . Meanwhile you would have had to break like 20 camcorders in that time frame before "breaking" even.
