I purchased a Samsung SIR-TS360 DirectTV HD receiver from Circuit City a couple of weeks ago. I'm going to return it in order to purchase a HR10-250 HDTivo receiver instead (can't make do without the Tivo and dual-tuners that I've been used to in my aging Sony T60 these past 4 years).


Presumably CC will resell it as open-box item. Will they include the access card? If so, then won't whoever purchases it be able to use it without registering it with DirectTV and use it as if it was mine and on my account?


Or, is there some kind of "deactivation" procedure that I must go through with DirectTV? If so, do I need to still have the receiver in my possession and hooked up?

The card cannot be used on another account. If the box is resold, CC will provide a new access card.


Just exchange the 360 for the HDTivo, connect the Tivo, call D* and tell them you've replaced your 360 with a Tivo.
