I have an issue with some old Directv receivers––two Tivos, one non-Tivo, one of which is HD (not sure which one). Last month in my new place I had Directv installed, after three years living in a place where it was not available. So I’m wondering what I can do with those old receivers. The Directv tech told me the old receivers are worthless, that they cannot be used, sold, scrapped, anything, and the saved shows cannot be copied to other media.
Is this true? What are my options? If you need more information about the receivers, I can provide that as well. And if there is a better forum to post this, please inform me of that as well. And for the record, I legitimately own these; they are not stolen. Thanks for your input.
