Motorola box comcast from eBay, will it work?

Has anyone purchased a cable box on eBay and was able to successfully hook up to their TV?  We already have a HD/DVR box but I want to purchase rather than rent another box (DVR only) and hook up to another existing tv in our house.  Will it work and does it have to be configured by comcast? Or can I configure myself? Comcast told me that it had to be configured to my address.  What models can I buy?  I'm just looking to save extra money in not having to rent the box since I already pay so much for my cable. thanks!

1. This post does not belong in this area.
2. Comcast has never sold cable boxes or DVRs, so any box you buy on EBay is likely to be stolen.
3. Wait until after the new law takes effect and buy a box that is supported

or


4. Buy a Series3 TiVo and get CableCARDs from Comcast

I'm sorry as I did not realize my topic didn't belong in the "FAQ and External Links".  It seemed like the best choice out of the choices I was presented.  Where would you post it?  By the way, thanks for the article.  It's been useful.

The other place you made the identical post (while identical posting is improper) was the right place.
