    My suggestion was based on my dislike of how they slip owned receivers out of existence by slipping one of their cash cow leased ones in and not saying anything about it or even training their CSRs well enough so you get the "owned receivers don't exist" line when you try to get transferred to the card department, or even the logic of "all receivers are leased since I don't know any better, so this guys HR24 is a lease" which is what I bet happened.

    itzme, here's the official statement from me: You're cool. Don't worry about it. As for the details, we all understand that you have to do what you have to do. There are some really hard-and-fast rules for field trials but in the end this is not the Klingon Empire. Mistakes are not generally fatal.

    Since I had 4 receivers and only 2 TVs, I decided to deactivate my trusty leased HR20-700 (the others are all field trial units). The CSR said that the HR20 showed up as owned and I didn't need to return it. I asked her to check the others and they are also listed as "owned".

    Perhaps they don't want some of the older models back any more and are switching them to owned status.

    It must be part of the "rent to own" program. :lol: Seriously, you may be on to something. :)
