    Hi Dane,

    Glad you took the time to get back to me. Almost given up. When I first got the card, I put it in and it seemed to stay on the acquiring channels screen, so I just took the unpaired card out at that time. I will try again and see if it can "automagically" happen for me. Would be nice to get guide data on the locals.

    Thanks.

    Jim

    Did not work for me. Got a Motorola card, which is the same as my cable company uses. When I inserted card, it updated to latest software however it stayed stuck on "Acquiring channel information" screen.

    Dane,

    I suspect you are in FL? I am in Clearwater, FL and the WOW digital transition is starting at the end of the month. After doing a channel scan yesterday we now get about 15 channels labeled 0-0, with no guide data. Like you we have the Expanded Basic line up that is provided through a "bulk" account through our condo association.

    I am very curious to find out if they are going to charge for the CC we will need for our TiVoHD. The did send the 2 DTA's but they are really any good to us.

    @audiodane Were you able to get the CC for free?

    So for those of us with FiOS, the general consensus that a single Motorola M card, acquired off eBay, and non-activated, will allow for installation into a TiVoHD and channel mapping of QAM channels, correct?
