I bought a DCT 3416/2305 from local craigslist ads. and have some channels shown up (Including HDTV channels)


Comparing with my existing DCT5100 rent from Comcast. The channels are not lined up properly. For example. Ch 202 is ABC HD instead of ESPN.


I called Comcast and they refused to provide support for the 3rd party cable box. Is anyway I can setup by myself?


Thanks for your advise.

You bought a stolen box. Comcast will not activate or support it under any circumstances.


In the United States, Motorola boxes are sold exclusively to cable companies. They are not sold to consumers. Hence any box you found locally via craigslist was stolen.

I wish I ask this before I bought it. Actually, I checked the ebay. There are a number of this kind of units for sale, I made the wrong assumption.


Well, 80 bucks for a lesson.



Thanks to clarify this.
