    Just be sure to disconnect the receiver from the satellite connection prior to having it deactivated.

    OK. Now I am starting to get confused. What I intended to do was to disconnect the SD Tivo from the dish but keep it activated until I was finished with it. Are you saying I can disconnect it, get it deactivated and still use it to watch the stuff that is still on it? If so, how long will it allow me to do that? I had an HR10-250 that pretty much worked forever after it was deactivated. Can I do the same with an SD Tivo?

    If you deactivate it with the DVR still hooked up Directv will send a Signal to it which will not allow you to watch your Recordings.

    If you disconnect your DVR then when Directv deactivates the DVR, it will not be able to receive the signal therefore your Recordings will still be Viewable as long as you do not reconnect it to Directv.

    I have whole home service. I have HR34 and hr20-700.
    My hr34 gets very slow at times and then locks up. I reboot to correct problem.
    This is my second HR34. Anyone else having issues similar to this?
