    I just got a cable card and put it in TiVo. I was able to get the host id and cable card id right on the screen, but no data ID is shown. How can I find my data ID?

    Yeah that's the screen I was seeing, but with less info. Apparently data ID is not needed anymore! FYI for anyone else wondering the same thing. It was activated with the card number, serial number, and host ID, they did not ask for data id.

    Data ID is only for Motorola CableCards. Cisco/Scientific Atlanta ones only have Host ID and CableCard number.
