I found an D11-100 refurb on the side of the freeway. I had to go down a couple exits and double back and come down again to retrieve it. It was completely sealed and not even destroyed, cardboard box was still in original dimensions.

I figured it was completely worthless to retrieve, but then I started to thinking that this is probably going to be some $300 backcharge to some poor technician who probably isn't doing much better than that per week. So, I rescued it. Now begins the process of tracking down whoever should be in possession of it. There is a DSI out here, but being a sealed refurb, I don't think it was issued through them. I think it was likely an Aerosat or Ironwood tech or one of their subbies.

Anyone have any suggestions on how I can track down the "owner"? Should I call Ironwood or Aerosat? Is there another way to track it by serial or card number? I honestly haven't touched a DirecTV system since even before the first generation KAKU so I'm out of the loop on that stuff.

*Snickers* We had a guy in our shop who didn't want to take the time to send in a IRD for refurb so he threw it out the window- you can see him in the unemployment line! :D

Ok, so Aerosat (HSP or AFS around here) got back to me and said it was issued to one of their subcontractors and they passed my contact information on to them. Well, the sub hasn't called me yet. The sub probably doesn't care because he'll just pass the charge on to the tech.

This whole thing is irritating me a bit. Doing the right thing is supposed to be rewarding but it's dragging out.

Honesty is the best policy, but nobody ever said it was the easiest. :)

Try this On time guarentee shit these guys are under now if you think the 300$ Ird racket is something.

= 100$ bills raped to death and Nationwide all day and everyday.

My recon and PAPER obtained, i havent scene a soul Yet that recieved a full check w/o articulated RAPE either.. Not one since this "new software" and the stipulations surrounding per EACH and every tech.

Funny thing is this Sieble BS software these HSP's AND their subs are using now.. DICTATES down to the minute the times of arrival and etas of completion, BUT are called sub contractors. (lol)
= See the Fed Ex Precident (employee VS sub)

Their own software NOW is the Evidence.. Dumb asses
and the Paper is Printed and Given as "the proof".

= David VS The racketeering Goliath... a stones throw away.. so how hard will they fall this time.?
