Returned X1 DVR Box Still in My Account > Devices?

I returned a 2nd X1 DVR that we are not using today to the XFINITY Store. They gave us a receipt for the return and yet it still shows on the My Account Web Site under DEVICES.

 

Shows offline and the name is deleted from it. Just says "SET-TOP-BOX". 

I called support and they confirmed I only had the 1 DVR box on my account.

 

Why is this returned box still showing online? 

 

Thanks.

It can take 48-72 hours before everything in the backend of your account catches up, to account changes

In the past, they always disappeared as soon as I returned them.

Any idea why the equipment changes have previously reflected instantly?

 

I had alot of equipment swaps due to changes at my house within the last 2 months and everything changed instantly before.

UPDATE: The Serial # displaying online is not even real. It does not exist in the Comcast system. Very odd....
