I want to move my digital box from home to my RV for the summer, but my box says I need to activate it. I thought it was activated
Should be able to do it online, couple other people posted the activation site is broken at the moment
Satellite or Cable box?
It's a digital cable box that I use for my 2nd TV at home
Is it telling you Not Authorized? Or One Moment Please?
Does it work if you take it back to the house?
It's saying it needs to be activated. I'm taking it home tonight to see if it still works there
How far apart is your RV and your home?
Is this one of the DCX3200 or DCX3510 models? I wonder if there is more security in them, that it knows it is in a different area from your home, where it is supposed to be
This is a DCT700/US. I've done this before with this box, just transfered from home to RV and it's worked fine. I haven't actually had it plugged in for the last 6 months though. The campground is about 35 kms from my home.
6 months, that will be why, it will simply need reactivation...Codes change, and if the terminals don't respond when the system tries to communicate with it, it gets removed from the system after a number of fails
can I do that on line where it says to activate your digital box...or do I have to phone someone?
Great thanks, I'll take care of it.
