Need CC firmware help

Using the cablecard menu on my orig S3 the firmware being reported for my two M cards is as follows:
Card #2 FW Version: 03.31, 02.65, 03.25
Card #1 FW Version: 02.01, -.-, 03.25

Considering buying a Roamio but want to know if I'm going to be able to enjoy all 6 tuners. Tivo support says I need firmware 2.65 for Moto cards. So it appears the card #2 should work but not card #1, correct?

I have TWC near Toledo OH and their support claims I can only receive 2 tuners on any CC but we all know how reliable they can be.

Not sure about firmware level, but I have TWC in NYC and swapped out my series 3 for a Roamio.

Kept one of the two cards and returned the other one. All six tuners work just fine.

If you buy 1 roamio you only need 1 card so the one with the updated firmware should work fine.

The other card in your S3 is likely a singlestream card so that is why the Firmware is so out of date.


Roamio Pro Lifetime (AC Bridge and Moca Bridge)
Roamio Base Lifetime (Ethernet)
4 Minis (2 Moca 2 Powerline)

These are notes I took for Motorola cards based on other threads on this topic:

Firmware required for 6 tuners:
FW 2.65
FW* 6.25

CableCARD Part# should be greater than 514517-01x-00.
Part# 514517-012-00 should be sufficient except for FiOS which apparently requires 514517-017-00

Additionally if Tuning Adapter is required:
For Motorola MTR700 you need platform version 01.37 to get 6 tuners.
(Version info under Settings-Account & System Info-Tuning Adapter-Tuning Adapter Diagnostics-CODE MODULES)

Roamio Pro, Elite, Premiere
Cox - Motorola CableCards & TAs
Slingbox 350 via TiVo Mini & TiVo Stream for remote viewing
