    I'm trying to resurrect an HR10-250 just for OTA watching with a buffer. (i know no guide data or recording) I went into setup and chose 'antenna only' but it won't tune in any stations. I tested OTA signal strength and channels do register in the test meter.. In system info it says account closed. Does that render the box useless? Am I missing something? Thanks.

    I have a couple deactivated but they still work as OTA tuners. Plug in a Sat cable to the 101 bird and you get guide data too. I’m not sure why you can’t get it to tune. The scanning for all channels is still intact on the 10-250, besides the ones recognized by DirecTV. You just won’t get guide data on those.
