    Does the TiVo service need to be connected in order to use Live TV? My Tvio connections comes up as failed often due to flaky wireless. I am trying to activate my cablecard, but am getting this error. Not sure if its an issue on my end or cable company.

    This channel is not authorized. Contact your cable provider for more information (V58).

    What error messages are you getting for your wireless network connections?

    The cable card issue is not related to Tivo service, it may not be properly paired.
    What does the cable card menu screen say?

    wireless and the cablecard do not depend on each other sounds like a bad tivo.
