Buying a used SA 8300HDC

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, Sorry if a repeat but if I buy a Scientific Atlanta 8300HDC that was used in Columbus Ohio (cable provider not known) will it work here in Ocala FL with Brighthouse?
They use these here but I can't get one at this time. The last one I had was better than the newer Samsung models here.

No major US cable company will activate any 8300HDC that they did not provide to their customer.

Ok, thanks for the info. I talked to the cable guy here and he said about the same thing.

As a matter of fact it's most likely stolen.
