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)

It's strange that some people are having problems. I've had seven receivers now, four 3100s, one 5800, one 5900 and one 2700 and sold all of them except the 5800 and 5900. Never had a problem. When I sold the 3100s I called Bell and explained that I was selling them to my friend, handed the phone to my friend and let him finish the activation. It was very easy.

I've had my share of bad CSRs, but if I don't seem to be getting anywhere with the current CSR I hang up and call another. It so frustrating when the quality of the service you receive depends so much on the experience and conscienciousness of the agent at the other end of the phone.
