    I could use a HR10-250 for parts. Is it still available? I am also located in the Peninsula...


    Thanks,

    Will DirecTV activate used Tivo units if we do NOT want HD channels? My parents don't want them and just got DirecTV and I've got an old Sony DirectTivo they could use just lying around.

    I just went through this with DTV over Christmas. The key is the unit has to be owned and not leased. When you call, speak with "Card Activation Department" not the regular customer service center. If owned, you can get regular programming without HD. I am dong this now. The regular CSR activated my owned unit as a lease and messed me up. It was very difficult to get it all fixed but the Card Activation Center cleaned it all up for me. To save headache, if you get one with a card, don't use it even if they tell you you can, which they should not. If there are any charges on a old card, you could be liable if they were not paid by previous owner.

    I'm in the process of upgrading my stuff to HD. Looking for a go-between receiver until the new DTV tivo comes out (if ever). So what HD channels do you still get with this model, or should I just get an SD model?

    If you want HD you will have to wait till latter part of 2010 - maybe to get this, none exist at the moment for HD

    Again I'll suggest this: If you're going to stay with DirecTV anyway what is the harm of getting an HR2x to "hold you over" until the new DirecTivo HD unit ships? You've got nothing to lose and you get 100+ HD channels in the meantime. If the DirecTivo never ships and you just can't live without Tivo then you can switch at that time. And by the time we'll know for sure if it will come out or not you won't have much time left on your commitment anyway.

    But why deny yourself so many HD channel on purpose if you plan to stay with DirecTV anyway or are just waiting it out? I just don't get it.

    My HR10-250 is partially dead (bad power supply), so what would you charge to ship your other HR10-250 to me in Shelton, CT 06484?

    Mine (upgraded to 92 hours HD, 609 hours SD) is still available if anyone's interested. $20 plus shipping, or just $10 for local pickup in Los Angeles... I'll also include the original drive which I pulled when I did the upgrade, as well as the remote and all cables.

    There's some cosmetic damage on the case, but it worked fine when I last used it. I replaced the power supply with a new one from Weaknees about 6 months before I retired the receiver, so there's hopefully plenty of life left in it! This was owned, never leased.

    I've got one I stopped using some time ago. Still works great. I also have the instant cake cd for it.

    I'll let it go for 25 if interested PM me.

    I just picked up an HR10-250 from a friend's widow. My wife can't tell the difference in SD and HD, so the fact that the HDMI works well at 480i is perfect. It is great having TiVo back again, even if all we can get is SD content. This unit is so much nicer than our old Philips SD unit.

    Thanks for the pointer to call the card activation unit. It made it easy to get a new card and get this back on the air. It is strange that they want $20 to activate a card, though. I guess it is just another profit center for them. It can't really cost them $20 to do all of the stuff for a new card.
