Advertisements My mom recently purchased a DTV HD DVR from Costco as a lease upgrade. Unfortunately, she passed away shortly after, and I need to return the DVR. DTV has turned off the service without an early cancellation fee, but they said that if I return the DVR to Costco, DTV might bill me for the full amount of the DVR since it's leased and not purchased. The DTV rep wasn't sure how Costco handles these returns, and she recommended that I return the DVR to DTV (of course, I wouldn't get the $169 refunded that way). Mom returned the original HD Receiver in a prepaid mailing after she bought the DVR. She was going to return the DVR anyway since the one she got was used (it had recordings of Survivor and other shows from before her purchase date). Any help would be appreciated.
