I was given a Motorola receiver DCT 2500, can I use it if I connect it to my system? How do I register it with Shaw? Is the DCT 2500 still in use?
As long as the original owner has removed it from their account, you can just call Shaw (Or wait for a rep here to chime in.) and have them add it to your account.
If it's still tied to their account, you'll have to get them to call Shaw and release it before you can use it.
As gamerguy mentioned, the digital box would just need to be removed from the original owner's account, added to yours and activated in order for it to work. Have you been in touch with a Shaw rep to get the digital box registered for you? If not, please don't hesitate to reply back to this thread. I'd be happy to help!
