Can I sell a Tivo box from Virgin Media on here

I had a 1TB Tivo box from Virgin 3 or 4 years ago and left them approximately two years ago.

They never collected the box, despite me asking for it to be collected on multiple occasions.

I then complained about it cluttering up my house and they replied with:

"Hi there.

our equipment you have recently disconnected is not required to be returned, please dispose of this in an environmentally friendly way. If you still wish for us to send postal packaging to send back for us to recycle please reply to this e-mail.

Thanks,

The Virgin Media Collections Team."

I was going to dismantle it to make use of the 1TB hard drive, but see them selling for a decent amount on eBay.

I've just tried to list it but get the following message:

"Virgin Media Tivo boxes
It appears that you are trying to list a Virgin Media Tivo box. Please be aware that Virgin Media informed us that the resale of the TiVo box is not allowed since the buyers won’t be able to use it. Virgin Media will request the buyer to return the box. For more information you can directly contact Virgin Media at: CPEAssurance@virginmedia.co.uk.

Thanks for your understanding."

So I can throw it in the bin, or rip it apart, but not sell it.

Could I sell it on here?
