I ordered a new dvr to replace a hr10 that was constantly rebooting. It now appears it was a d* problem with D*Tivos and that I probably don't need the new dvr. I can return it but would have to pay shipping cost and I really wouldn't mind keeping the new dvr for later use since I have several older receivers. Is there any time limit on how long I can keep a new dvr without activating it?

I believe it is supposed to be activated within 30 days. I do not know what happens if you don't, or whether or not you would be able to activate it in the future.
There's a non activation fee.

OP you won't pay D&H you can either refuse the shipment or call DIRECTV and they can send you a label.

The replacement receiver MUST be used to replace the receiver in question, failure to do so, will result in charges to your account.

You should keep the newer DVR.
You are loosing a lot of available programming with that HR10. It only can decode MPG2 transmissions. Not, the newest MPG4 HD programming.
