from what you guys have said, it seems as though I have been defrauded. Is that a correct assumption?

Also, is it a correct assumption that there is no way to get a lifetime subscription with DTV anymore? Thanks again for the heads up...



You're correct in both your statements. This is most definitely a hacked machine. The tipoff is the phrase "modem call-outs shut off," as well as the software only being 2.5.2, yet the seller claiming it is the latest software. DTiVos are running 3.1 now.

It is not possible to get a lifetime subscription with DTV anymore, as they haven't sold them for several years. I suggest you contact the seller and ask him how he's planning on transferring his lifetime subscription to you, as legitimate lifetime DTiVo subscription are tied to a DTV account rather than a specific machine.
