srfrdan might want to clarify but I'm suspecting the confusion might be with DirecTV "pressuring" a customer to upgrade to a "modern" Receiver (No surprise if you call them and they see a 10+ Year old Receiver(s) on the account they'd be remiss in not mentioning it...) AND the statement "along with my rca receivers from that time".
Two different things... According to this one thread. http://www.dbstalk.com/topic/203605-pre-2003-receiver-upgrade/
Most of these Pre-2003 Model Receivers are at their End of Life now and are likely to be upgraded by DTV if they are still in service. For example My pre-UTV Receivers (A Sony Sat A-55 and a B-55) have been chilling out downstairs with my spare UTVs/Parts... and until yesterday I'd assumed that if needed I could have reactivated them on my account... doesn't seem likely now.
Good news that list doesn't seem to include any of the 3 UTV models, yet. So there is still time... enjoy it while you can.
