Sorry, but the Fibe system "authenticates" the recordings each time you try to play and if you're not connected to Fibe, it won't play.

Did USA ARRIS VIP2502 receivers can be activated on Bell Fibe?

I am just wondering if any ARRIS VIP2502 receivers coming from USA providers may be activated on BELL FIBE? They are easier to find used in USA and extremely cheap... compared to classified in Canada...

Thx :)

Bell can only activate receivers that are in their database of serial numbers.
In other words, Bell will only activate receivers that they themselves sold. They will not activate receivers from other broadcast distributors (BDUs) or receivers purchased directly from the manufacturer. That's true of most Canadian BDUs. Even though two companies might use identical equipment (for example Bell and Telus or Rogers and Shaw) they will not activate the other company's equipment on their system even if the consumer owns it.

Got it folks! thank you for clarifying this for the US receivers.

And what about Ontario vs Quebec? I mean... I live in Quebec where I don't find a single VIP2502 in the classifieds, but if I extend my search to Ontario, there's PLENTY of VIP2502 in the classifieds... is there something different between Bell's terms of services in Ontario and Quebec? Am I missing something here?

Thanks,

Mike:
Of which up to 3 can be HD (on the non-4K PVR) and the other is non-HD.
