Yep. I ran into the above. Phantom Gremlin, I and a bunch of others had the displeasure of dealing w/the Frontier FiOS pairing and copy protection.
(Well, it actually started while under Verizon control, before the handoff to Frontier. We thought it was an outage, but it turned out to be turning on CP w/o telling us when nobody had paired our cards, since it wasn't necessary before.)
I've moved to another state (from WA to CA) and there is no FiOS here. I'm on Comcrap, but at least there's no more CP crap on most channels.
