If you are leasing that HR20 and you removed the cover you will now owe a few hunder dollars for braking the lease agerment. So if it ever needs to be replaced get out your check book.
Yup.

Unless your unit is owned as opposed to leased.....keep your lid shut. :D :lol:

Folks,

Most HR2x devices are leased ONLY .. there are some rare exceptions, but the vast majority of receivers are leased. You really should not be altering your receivers if it is a leased device.

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?

I used to open my tivo's up once a year and blow a pound of dust out of them. I guess there'll be none of that.

Not guaranteed that they will do it, but it is possible and within the leased equipment agreement parameters.

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"...

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.

You have to have something on the case to report case opening to the motherboard for that to work.

I open everything and poke around, I can't fight the urge to have a look. :)
