    Bought a RDR-HXD910 from the Local Sony center. Got a feeling that it may be an ex-display unit, not a new one.
    Any way the machine can show the useage hours, like the Sony LCD's do ?

    Was no registration card in box, and the batteries for the remote were flat.

    Was the box sealed properly?
    Were the batteries in the remote or cellophane sealed?

    Sealed with Brown Packing Tape, but they did make it region-free for me. Batteries in the remote, only other thing in the Box was Mains Lead, Instruction book, and RF lead.

    Tried to register it with Sony and it seems there should be a guarantee card with a 16 digit number.

    That would explain the batteries in the remote and brown sealing tape then.

    Have a look on the label on the box for a 16digit code then.

    Visited the Sony Center and they had no problem in changing the recorder over, giving me a new sealed box, which they opened and converted for me.

    Pays to use a local dealer sometimes. :clap:

    ......and so they should exchange it.

    Seems as if you were correct in your assumption that it was a used model.

    More so now. Once I see that the replacement had various stickers, and also needed the "express setup" run.

    The previous one also didn't control a Sony TV out of the box, this one did.
