    I suppose it could be a console port as you described, but IIRC, the serial port is used on very few models (HR21PRO perhaps being the only one??), and it allows remote control via the serial port.

    Glad I read this, first. Hopefully, the other -100 will be easier to add to our accounts.

    Should I keep my box sealed?

    Speaking of that, my box arrived opened! :eek:

    Methinks the FedEx guy wanted to see what was in there. :lol:

    sigma1914, there's no reason to open it but no harm if you do.

    I can understand that. I felt the same way after the first -500 test group got theirs.

    Mine's loaded with shows and SL's right now. I wonder if they care if there are recordings on it? It's not a big deal to do a "reset all" before I repack it.

    You're probably right. I may just do it as a courtesy... like rewinding a tape before bringing it back to the video store. :lol:

    Deactivation will be handled just as activation was. It should be automatic but if it is not, let one of us know. The DIRECTV folks should deactivate the old one when they receive it, and the new one should be pre-activated and may require only refreshing services.
