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 have just sold a Bell receiver the 6000 and they do sell for a good price on E Bay. I don't think it is the case of purchase for illegal purposes for I believe most buyers wish to register them on their Bell account The 6000 however can have an 8vsb board installed that will enable you to record HD using fire wire connection. From what I have read there are very few receivers that can take this modification hence the good sale price.
Mind I suppose this mod might well be illegal in the grand scheme of things but you are paying Bell for their services.
