Buying a used Shaw HD PVR?
I've been wondering about something. If I purchase a used Shaw HD PVR off somebody, will Shaw allow me to hook it use it if I buy the HD package from them or do I have to buy one new for $650?

I spoke with a shaw rep today via live chat and asked what the procedure was if I purchased a PVR elsewhere. Was there a fee involved to connect it or what?

Yeah, as others have said make sure it's not a 3rd party device and that it isn't stolen or a rental. Also, you should get the seller to deactivate the PVR from their account first.
