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 think you should also! It is a great deal, even with only 1 remote....easy to pick up a remote for cheap on Flea-Bay. Have a look on the aforementioned site to see how much 9200's are going for still.
That is, as long as the receiver checks out with Bell, and is clear to be activated on your account.
A couple of months ago I picked up a 9200 from a very disgruntled ex-Bell TV subscriber for $50!!! This was because the hard drive in it gave up, and Bell would do nothing for him to replace the receiver. He was a 9 year subscriber! :confused:
I replaced the defective hard drive for $ good for me, not so much for him. :eek:
