Can I user the VIP5662W as a secondary receiver

Hello, I just purchased a used VIP5662W for very cheap. I thought I could use it as a secondary receiver. When I called Bell to activate it, customer support told me I couldn't activate more than one VIP5662W as they are main units and you can only have one per account. Is this true or is there any way I can activate it as a secondary receiver? If not, anyone in need of a main receiver ?

Thanks

Yes, this is the 4K/PVR box. They do sell/rent a non PVR 4K box.

Well I talked with a second technician via online chat and he confirmed that you cannot have 2 VIP5662W on the same account.
I guess I will try to sell it on Kijiji.
