It seems as if my HDVR2 (which I've had since 2003) has finally hit the end of it's lifespan and succumbed to a dead tuner. I managed to find a great deal on a brand new (sealed box) DirecTV R10, but I have a few concerns about activating it with DirecTV: 1. Since the R10 was (I think) the first of the DirecTivos to use RIDs, I assume this means I can't just swap the access cards before Guided Setup like I could for older DirecTivos like the HDVR2. Would DirecTV CSRs still be knowledgeable enough with the R10 to activate its service without too much issue? 2. Even though this R10 was sold as brand new (and was in fact sealed in all of its packaging), it actually has some promotional material from WeaKnees in the box, so I think it was a refurbished unit in their stock at some point. One of the included papers had a brand new access card taped to it with a rather ominous message saying that THAT access card had to be activated by calling DirecTV at a certain number. Should I follow those instructions or just call DirecTV and frame the story as transferring DVR service from the HDVR2 to the R10? 3. I'm out of luck as far as getting 6.4a from the satellite stream, aren't I? I have another R10 in my house running 6.4a; should I just clone that drive to a new one using MFStools?
