Not guaranteed that they will do it, but it is possible and within the leased equipment agreement parameters.t_h said:Hmm. Both of mine lack the 'warranty void' stickers on them. Does that mean they're going to charge me umpty ump dollars when I send them back in a year and a half?
My HR20-100 was a refurb and has never had a "void warranty" sticker on the back. From what I've read here there are many others in the same boat. Unless DirecTV is tracking who is getting refurbs and who is getting new units, I don't see how they could ever try to ding somebody for opening up their DVR.hdtvfan0001 said:Not guaranteed that they will do it, but it is possible and within the leased equipment agreement parameters.
You have to have something on the case to report case opening to the motherboard for that to work.Drew2k said:For all we know, DIRECTV implemented other measures to detect "tampering". I had a PC a while ago that had a setting in CMOS to report if the cover had been opened. I doubt DIRECTV went this far, though. as the shiny silver seal in most cases would suffice to ward off "tampering"...
