    I just upgraded one of my receivers from an H24-200 to an HD DVR (HR-24 500). D* told me they didn't need the receiver back, as it is an older model, they just requested I send back the access card. Does this mean that I can sell the old receiver? and is there a market for it?

    I think the person misinformed you.
    They should send a recovery kit for the replaced receivers. I just had a HR23 replaced and they took it back. I do not believe they are not taking HR24s back.
    Keep them for a few months and keep a check on your bill to see if you get charged for them for not returning them.

    Keep it and call Retention for a recovery kit and tell them what the CSR you spoke to said. Could be a rewarding experience for you.

    Note that the OP said he replaced an H24-200. But, it's still a current non DVR receiver, I'd think that they would want it back.

    IIRC, non-recoverable receivers cannot be activated on any other account but the one it came out of. So even it you were able to sell, the buyer might not be able to activate it.

    No, they can be activated again. If they were owned in the first place. I've sold several 20-700s that I owned and deactivated and the buyers had no problem activating them.

    Peds was referring specially to leased receivers that are listed as being non-recoverable.
