    I tried that. Picked up an M-Card from eBay and put it in my Premiere. It found nothing and the diags indicated nothing but a lot of empty entries. It did show me the card was there, but nothing changed. I have 10 clear QAM right now. Normally I have 5 analog test patterns and one clear QAM (cable co info channel). I have been tempted to call my feed and see if they will activate if I don't tell them where I got it and they don't check my records. But I don't want them to get mad at me. :rolleyes:

    I have heard that it doesn't work in some systems. I don't know what the issue could be. Mine works fine on TWC using a Cisco card.

    It could be a "virgin" card or one from a different type of cable (HRC, IRC?) or I'm just unlucky. I have moved a card from a Premiere to a Roamio without any problems.

    The card is not authenticated to be on their system. Then the card has to be added to your account to allow you to view he channels you subscribe to.
    When this division was run by SECO all that you had to do was enter the serial number of the card in the system and you can view the in the clear channels.

    SECV will not authenticate a card that they did not hand out so any card or box that doesn't belong is junk.

    Neither was mine and many others but they've worked for clear QAM.
