Just told 500 series & earlier receivers can no longer be added nor reactivated
I was just on with tech support at Shaw Direct asking a question about my recently decommissioned 530 that I replaced with a 630. I was told it can never be added again, period as it was decommissioned. But then I asked about my old 505, which I was told about two weeks ago was still on my account, but inactive. I learned that as of Tuesday (two days ago), it's not possible to add any 500 series receivers or earlier on accounts. So my 505 is no longer there anymore as it was inactive and it can no longer be added. This must be *specifically* for additions and/or re-activations. As if I still had my 530 working, it would be working now. I'm mentioning this in case someone's thinking of picking up a 500 series receiver for an extra or something.
