When DIRECTV removes the minis from your account you will immediately get a screen on the Genie to delete them from it. OK...remotes reprogrammed and all works well with the Genie to previous two "Mini" TV via a splitter. However, the two deactivated Minis still show on the Whole Home and if I hook them up service is still working. So...I re-called DTV and CSR confirmed they show on my account as deactivated and will not be charged BUT they still work. The CSR said they would not be deactivated until my billing cycle ends.........AND....he said that I would need to return the Minis. I informed him the previous CSR said they are on "long vacation" hold and would not need to return....... So, does this mean because I'm under this "vacation" option they will not be removed ? .........something seems wrong here.....CSRs seem to be saying different things.
