Hy HR44 has done some weird stuff lately, so thinking of getting an HR54 to have on hand, for what seems like that inevitable day. Whether it be Ebay, or whatever, I can get a brand new one. Not necessarily owned, but a leased receiver, which is fine. Bottom line, I can get exactly what I want, and find a new one. Will they activate it? Heard they won't activate the AT&T branded ones, on legacy accounts, or something like that. Never had a problem in the past, but AT&T didn't own them then either. If anyone has actually done it, I'd like to know. Thanks, in advance!
