Comcast around here requires you to return the box when you disconnect service. I dont think they "give" them to you, at least our Comcast doesnt.
He has, I believe, basic cable service. He was using a digital converter solely to allow him to watch his locals. His roommate/fellow employee has a big box like the one I sent him.moghedien said:Does your brother already have service at the apartment? Because I think there is more to getting service than just plugging in a receiver. If he already has service, does his Comcast charge him for adding a DVR above and beyond the monthly rental fee? If not, why go to the bother of shipping the receiver?
If you are interested in keeping this "on the level" then take down the receiver's model # and have your brother call his local Comcast about activating it on their system. If I were you, I would just keep the receiver on the off chance that your Comcast will want it back...
Have either or both of you talked to Comcast about this? I would think that would be the place to start.Lord Vader said:His TV is very old and doesn't have a QAM tuner.
