    I have active direcTV accounts at two houses. One is in my name and the other is in my wife's name. I took one of the receivers from my account and moved it to our house that has her account. Is this violating any DirecTV rules? We are in the process of buying a new house and dumping one account but for now this is how we are setup.

    The rule is one address per account.

    I believe he did say that he had 2 Direct TV accounts.

    While technically, that's against TOS, the only way that you're going be penalized for it is if you go around flagging down Field Supervisors screaming "Look what I'm getting away with"!
    That said if it were truly someone else's reciever, it'd be account stacking. Which is a nono.

    Wouldn't the receiver you moved technically still be on the account that's in YOUR name at the other address?

    I would say that violates the TOS but personally I really wouldn't worry about it. Your situation seems like somewhat of a grey area but I think it's still in violation of the TOS.

    It's against the ToS and if there are DMA changes it's violating Federal regulations as well.

    When you cancel one of your accounts all the receivers associated with that account will be deactivated and you will have to return those receivers (if they are leased receivers and considered "current").
