Advertisements After more than a decade of loyal service my SAT-T60 is on its last legs. The hard drive is dying. I purchased another unit on eBay, but found out that I cannot activate it because it does not have an RID. From what I can gather by searching these forums, I can swap out the hard drives and call DirecTV to activate the machine again, but I am worried that the reboot will require me to be connected to a phone line. I gave up my house line awhile ago and the TiVo still functions. It just reminds me every morning that I haven't made a call in 1,200 days. My plan has been to hold out until the new HD DirecTV TiVo comes out, but I am losing patience. If I can salvage my current set-up I can live with it for now. If I can't, what is my best option with DirecTV HD DVR's? Thank you for your time.
