Motorola Cable Box

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am considering buying a Motorola DCT26D43U on eBay for my upstairs HD TV. I already have Comcast HD coming into the house for my downstairs TV. Is there any reason this will not work? Do I need anything directly from Comcast, or will a used receiver/PVR work?

Thanks in advance for any guidance.

No boxes will work unless they are activated by the cable company. A cable box is sort of like a cell phone; it is a paperweight unless it is activated by your provider and added to your account.

Motorola boxes sold on ebay are almost always stolen. Cable companies do not activate stolen DVRs.

As a general rule, cable companies will only activate boxes sold by major retailers like Best Buy.
