Advertisements Just got my replacement HR10-250 through my extended warranty. DirecTV had nothing to do with this replacement. I originally purchased through VE. Just looked at my bill online and see that my owned receiver is now leased. On the phone with customer retention and even hearing from them that all equipment is leased. I will consider this leased when DirecTV refunds my original purchase price - not until then. Guess its a good thing the car companies do not operate this way. If you take your car in for warranty service, pick it up and it becomes a leased car. What a concept. Wonder why I didn't think of this business model.
