I just replaced my ailing HR21-100 (Mexico) with a new HR21-200 (Indonesia). Unlike the HR10, HR2x boxes won't let you drain your old programs unless they remain authorized (according to a CSR) at $4.99/mo or $1.15/wk.

I found out the hard way that I couldn't get back into my old Playlist unless I reconnected the satellite dish (at least one cable, maybe both cables) to the old box. The stupid software cannot be made to quit trying to acquire satellite information.

Question: After acquiring that satellite information, can I disconnect the satellite cable(s) for good, as long as I never have to restart the old receiver? Without the satellite connection, will I be allowed to continue using my old Playlist?

Thanx for the very fast response. I haven't switched the satellite input back to the old receiver yet, 'cause the new one needs it.

Hold down INFO? or MENU? or either?

On the remote? or the front panel?

MENU does something, but it doesn't stop the search for satellite information.

INFO does get you to a menu where you can stop it.

Great!
