Just a quick question... Why they will not allow a DCT6016 III HD PVR as a trade in for a Gateway portal?
Could say the same for any of the Pace products too, which (all?) came out after the DCT3416 did
Maybe someone from Shaw could pipe in and awswer both...
Hi there tkdragon,
Are you sure this is a DCT6016? I don't believe that is a model number we have ever carried. However, only the following 3 Motorola HDPVRs are accepted as trade-in for the Portal: DCT3416, DCX3400 or DCX 3510M.
I thought it was a typo for the DCT6416, as I don't think Motorola had a DCT6016 model
You are correct sir, it was a typo... DCT6416 III.
It is an HDPVR... why can't it be used as a trade in? The only difference I know of between the 2 is the 6416 has an additional analog tuner (hence why the box is 2" deeper).
Interested in a Gateway system, just don't want another useless box kicking around home. Got stuck with 2 SD boxes when I got the HD ones.
Just wondering if you ever had this issue resolved. I also have a DCT6416 and would like to trade in for something that actually works. Since they were $600.00 when purchased, it would be nice to get something for it. Also the monthly cost has gone up at of Sept......
As Jeff previously mentioned, 6416's are not available for trade up. Unfortunately I cannot provide an answer as to why this exact model is not available for trade-up but there is the option to sell this box privately so you have some cash to put towards a new HD box.
