It will work as an OTA tuner, sort of .... You'll only have the 30-minute buffer. You cannot schedule recordings because no Guide Data will be available.
.....Guide data available when you hookup a satellite input. No Activation necessary, and DVR functions work for all previously recorded shows and for DLB up to 30 min. However, nothing new can be recorded.

So if I have an HR10-250 and I just hook up a satellite cable to it will it automatically detect it and allow you to view your previously archived recordings on it???

Or do I have to Reset the DVR???

You shouldn't need any satellite connection to simply view previously recorded stuff. Unless you're planning to activate it on your DirecTV account, you probably don't want to connect a satellite cable.

So long as you don't mind the "searching for satelite signal" message on the screen the whole time you are watching an archived program...

anybody know how to clear that message?

It only shows up for the first 5 minutes on my units and then shuts off automatically.

Once you play another program it comes on for 5 minutes and shuts off...etc....etc.
