Advertisements I'm considering leaving DirectTV for AT&T Uverse with the thought that if Uverse isn't to my liking I'll return to DTV. AT&T has a 30 day guarantee and no contract so I know leaving them won't be a problem (or at least I hope); but I'm wondering if the DirectTV people will let me re-subscribe using my old HDVR2 box? I don't want to get forced into leasing one of their non-Tivo DVR's if I decide to come back. Will DTV allow someone to just re-open their subscription? PS: In case it matters, I've hacked my HDVR2 with the usual: bash, tivoweb+, bigger hard drives, etc... are there any issues there if they ask me to buy a new smart card?
