    That's just beyond ridiculous, both the price and the method/delay for the install.

    As for Onelink customers in PR... I recall reading a few months ago that a few people weren't able to get CableCards without paying the extra $13 for the anemic five channel HD lineup (might've been a different thread?)... Well, it's still possible, the sales rep might say he's not aware of it or whatever but if you push him to ask for a supervisor they'll let you have the card for the $6 or whatever the card-only fee is (like $2 for the card and $5 for "digital access" IIRC).

    I called in recently to place an order for my card since they've going all digital soon and without it I wouldn't even be able to watch basic cable.

    Based on OneLink's response to the FCC, it looks like the FCC gave OneLink 30 days to start offering this programming or 'else'.
    Don't expect the Installer to know what (s)he's doing, you need to be the expert here.

    Hi curiera, I'm glad to have run into your message. I work for Liberty Cablevision of Puerto Rico, and I apologize for the inconvenience you experienced. Contrary to what you were informed, TiVO customers may obtain the CableCARD necessary for TiVO and Liberty integrated service the same day they visit any of Liberty's customer service centers. Both the TiVO and the CableCARD will be activated on your Liberty account that same day if you bring your TiVo to a service center, or as soon as you install the card and call us with your TiVO equipment data and equipment number. Please call us at 787-657-3050, exts. 4004 or 5035 or Liberty customer service number if you need more information or have any problems.

    The techs and even their sales people seem a lot better informed about Cablecards as of late, despite the fact that the number of card users is probably dwindling.

    i just got triple pack with 40 megs. tech told me i could add the cablecard later on for just $5.99 more.

    is the M-Card the default now? or do i still have to request it? Thanks!

    Hello,

    I live in San Juan and I'm considering buying a Roamio. I just want to know if it actually works with Liberty Cable and if so, what is the process I have to do in order to have the Roamio working.

    Also, besides the service costs of TiVo, how much does Liberty charges for the equipment/service (card or whatever is needed for tiVo to work)?


    thank you!!!

    You really need to direct your questions either to Liberty Cable or TiVo.

    That said, the encryption standard (cable card) is industry wide. TiVos are designed to work with all US spec cable cards.

    If Liberty Cable includes a set-top box in the cost of cable, having a TiVo should save you a couple of dollars over using the cable company's standard-definition box. The FCC requires companies to have a separable charge for the set-top box and the cable card. since you'll only be renting the card and not the whole box it should be cheaper.

    This assumes Liberty is large enough not to be exempt from the requirement.

    Pricing is available further up in the thread: http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?t=331456&highlight=cablecard . Basically it's $1.75 / month per CableCARD. I have TivoHD and it works (though the internet features of TiVo don't because apparently Puerto Rico is not part of the US according to TiVo ... )
