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)

Buying used BEV receiver

I got an "official" answer from BEV tonight but I wanted to know if there is some loophole I can possibly use. A friend of a friend was given a used 9200 as payment for some work he had done for random person X, Now I try to activate and BEV says the original owner has not signed off so they say I'm pooched unless I get the original owner to call in first or option B is to wait until the original owners account has been closed for 1 year. Neither are really an option. I can always give it back and buy new which isn't a huge issue really but saving a couple hundred bucks is always nice. Anyone have a suggestion?
In my situation the friend of the friend could not or would not contact the original owner so I gave the receiver back. Nice paper weight he has there.
