If you're paying under $600, it's a lease. In fact, it's almost always a lease. If you really want to buy, look at places like ebay and craigslist. Have the seller give you the receiver ID and access card numbers, and then call DIRECTV and confirm that it is an owned receiver.

If you're looking to upgrade an HR24, note that there are some drives which will not physically fit in an HR24-200. I'd advise against buying a drive until you have the receiver in hand.
Just to clarify the title says HR24 so the owned price from DIRECTV is $499.

Dealers do not sell owned HR24's. Only DirecTv can do that. I suggest you call DirecTv with the RID # of those boxes you just bought, and see what DirecTv shows in their system for them. Ill BET they are leased.

"The key" here is when any of them get activated, not when they're "bought".
Used "owned" receiver have already been "keyed" [coded] as owned, not leased.
It's clear that Jerry K's "dealer" is selling used equipment that was already activated on an account that allowed owned equipment if the information is correct that he gave Jerry K.
