i hate to be debbie downer, but i recently dug out my sont UT box that i hadnt used in years to see if the standard def picture was better than the crappy freebie DTV gave me with new service.
Unfortunatley i was told that because the box does not have the new product ID code i cannot use the box. Apparently theyve added this code to prevent pirating service. If i had not atctivated new service, but re-activated old service i would have been able to use it.
So i said to the tech on the phone" so what you are telling me is this box is usless now?"
"basically , yes"
Something to keep in mind...
