You may be able to use it as an OTA tuner (hook up an antenna and find out), but the recording functions are disabled.

OTA will not work without a valid sub.

OTA doesn't even work on a valid sub, but when sat goes out, like in
a snow storm. Pretty weak...OTA is the perfect backup for storm related
sat outages, but D* seems to think otherwise.

I would sell it.

More likely you leased the HR20 and it is still the property of DirecTV. They may want it back.
