    My tivo still works great with my antenna but the cable card, although activated just shows black screen. Anyone ave any ah-ha moments to share?

    When I installed my cable card for FIOS, it took quite a while (at least an hour) before the channel map to download. Has the cable card been activate and paired? If you don't have HBO or Cinemax, it does not have to be paired. What does the DVR Diagnostics say?

    If it "still works great with your antenna" it sounds like you need to rerun Guided Setup on the TiVo to get the info for the new provider. You cant "hot swap" between the two.

    Make sure the card is activated!
