As I mentioned in my first post, I already replaced my 530 with a 630. The post was more about the fact that no 500 series receiver that isn't currently activated on an account will be activated now at all. This is new as of just this past Tuesday. For example, I had a 505 on my account that two weeks ago I was told I could activate. But as of last Tuesday, it now cannot be activated and has been removed altogether off my account. I know there were warnings about this, but it has actually happened now. And it appears that if someone isn't careful, they could purchase a 500 series receiver only to find it's good for a bookend.
