I had a 3100, a 5800 and a 5900 in the house. Thinking of going HD. Question, if I get a HD receiver, am I allowed to sell the 3100 or the 5800. There are quite a few for sale (at decent prices) on certain famous auction sites. Not sure if Bev allows that anymore.

Edit by 57 - 2011.10.25. You should not sell or buy 9200 or 6100 receivers since they are being phased out and BTV will not activate them. See link below for more on the topic: (They can still be used for OTA so they may have some value to someone interested in that option)

I just attempted to do an activation of a 9200 today, however the csr couldn't get the unit to activate. They didn't tell me they couldn't activate the unit. So not ssure if this iis due to the fact that they aren't allowing activations of the 9200 anynore or not. The csr said they will investigate the issue and contact me back. Yeahhhh right.
Hmm well that's no use to me really. Wanted it for a dual tuner unit. Guess I was taken by the seller.
Thanks for your response. I am an existing bell customer. I've emailed the seller however no response. He told me he never used the unit and it just sat around not activated. Ended up leaving bell over billing issues. Ill try back and see what bell has to say. I didn't have the units info to check with bell if the unit was able to be activated prior to purchase. I didn't know of this site till today when I did aa Google search to find out whats uup with the 9200. I have 2 of these units on my account currently with no issues or anythijg. So didn't know any better
Thanks dirtroad, ill check into that and see. Thanks for offering you help and ideas.
