What they mean, is sometimes people sell boxes that they do not own...meaning they rent them from their cable co - or rent to own, and if you buy a box which has money oweing on it or not owned by that individual you will end up with the bill or have the box taken away because it wasn't physically owned. That's why they say call ahead and get the GI or M number on the bottom of the box before you buy it so you can call Shaw to check to see if they will activate it or not.
Alot of boxes coming out of the US may not be activated or you may have a very hard time getting to activate here in Canada just because that is the policy of Shaw.
Hope that info helps
