Deleting your account/user from their PS3 does not deactivate.  You have to logon to your User, sign into your PSN Account, go to the account manager, and choose the system activation option to deactivate their PS3 from your account.

Has to be done on each PS3 you wish to deactivate.

Ahh, and since you deleted your account from their PS3s, you will need to add your account back to their PS3 and then deactivate, and delete again if you wish.

you can have your account on five.  You don't know where one of those ps3's is located?

Movies are one system activation only.

But you should be fine for games, since you can activate up to 5 systems for games.
