Question about Arris DCT6200 DTV Receiver
I went to Ebay to buy a MOTOROLA DCT6208/2005 box that matched the rental box I got from Comcast. I was ready to activate the box, had it wired into the system, and got a menu page that said the box was locked and needed a four digit code number to unlock. I called Comcast and requested they give me the code, which they refused. They said since the box was not from them, they could not help me activate it. They said I could either rent a box for $5./mo. each, or buy a TIVO and they would allow that to be acitvated. I don't want a TIVO with their monthly subscriber fee. I just want to recover the lost channels that Comcast is re-locating onto the digital realm that I'm paying for. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to unlock this box?? Thanks in advance....
I don't think you can use that box with Comcast, even if you were to get that lock pin removed, it still would not work with Comcast. The lock pin is easy to remove if that's a Comcast box, but the reps just hit a button on your account and it clears it. If the box is not able to be added to your account then they won't be able to remove the pin. Why don't you just get the DTA's for your TVs? You get 2 for free and you can get channels 2-99. What channels are you missing?
