Advertisements Story is that I bought a used DirecTivo unit, ended up with Comcast digital cable (never used or activated the DirecTV at all) and I ended up selling the DirecTivo unit with the card it had when I bought it. The new buyer is telling me that DirecTV is requiring the the owner call and cancel the service on that unit before he can do anything. They also won't send them a new card. What do we do here? It's just not feasible to locate the original owner of the unit to call DirecTV. How do we proceed so that the new owner can use it?
