    Unless the cablecard happens to be programmed for this particular channel mapping, I don't see how this can help.

    Because it doesn't work like that. Think of it this way: The mapping is being "broadcast" by the cable company, all the time. But you need a CableCard to receive it. It will receive any lineup from any cable company, assuming compatible equipment.

    You do not need a Cable Card on a Senior TV system. Traditional Cable Companies must use encryption when broadcasting HD channels to the end user, since companies like RetirementHomeTV and Senior TV use a system where the signal originates at the facility they do not have to use encryption (Clear QAM).
    In your case the guide information was submitted by Senior TV, the reason for there being two of them is more than likely because the system use to be analog and was switched to either a comm 1000 or ZeeVee system to allow you to receive HD channels. You need to contact Senior TV of this problem so they can make changes to the guild information.
    Again, these types of systems are not encrypted nor do they need to be remappedÂ… you do not need a card.
