Did not see this asked (sorry if I missed it)
I've been running two "zipper" self-hacked DTivos for a year now. They are networked and I have Vonage. Hughes Series2-exact model not handy or needed - this is a non-technical question.
I want to add HDTV service to my Directv system. I will likely order a plain old HD receiver (no need now for networking or recording HD material).
If I call DirectV and order HD service, where do I stand when they come out for the install ? Will they see my setup and confiscate it ? (I pay for everything legally-it's just the USB/networking that I hacked for). How should I approach this ? Any thoughts, experiences or suggestions appreciated. Should I pull the network connections B4 they show up ?
The last time I had this guys out to add a reciever, they didn't really bother me, but they didn't insist looking at anything either - I was lucky I guess ?
