Quick note for Fios customers: Verizon has closed all their "Fios enabled" stores in the Dallas area, and maybe the nation. You can no longer go pickup a cablecard at the store....you have to order it online and pay $19 (shipping/handling). I just found this out this morning.

The store in my location in central NJ is still open based on the FiOS Web site listing and a quick telephone call to the store. I would suggest calling the nearest store to you prior to making a trip to it.

Part of VZ's upcoming move to merge all FIOS stores with the Wireless stores after having sold the FIOS biz division and purchasing Vodafone's stake in VZW ...... which will really suck cuz the VZW stores up by me in north NJ are always packed with long wait times.

Is this still a problem? Or has this been resolved via software updates? I just upgraded my premier box to a Roamio and I don't want to go through the hassle of pairing my 006 card only to find out I don't get HBO in.

Thank you!!!

Any card can pair, but pairing still doesn't always work through the automated methods.

Easiest thing to do is follow @VerizonSupport on twitter, ask them to follow you back, then Direct Message them the card's serial number, CC ID, Host ID and Data ID and request a manual validation on your cablecard.

Im new to TIVO and setup two new Roamio DVRs on FIOS yesterday. I installed the CableCards and called the FIOS automated CableCard activation line. I had to type in the CC Id, Host Id, and Data Id of each card before the automated operator said activation was successful.

Of course, after about two hours, I still had no TV and both boxes were stuck at 72% updating. I went to the FIOS website and the support page suggested I start an online chat with an agent. This was at 12:45am EST, so I figured Id be waiting until the next day. To my surprise, they were still "open" and a very helpful online agent named "Baghleendgha" helped me out.

She asked for the S/N, CC Id, Host Id, and Data Id of each card and shortly thereafter, my TIVOs sprang to life! Before leaving the chat, she wanted me to ensure all my channels were there and patiently waited while I checked.

I have Ultimate and HBO and noticed a bunch of the premiums were missing. However, it turned out to be a TIVO issue. They were ommited in the TIVO channel list during the initial scan it seemed. I quickly added them back and everything works -- so far.

But can ANY card provide premium stations - even going through non-automated methods?

Or are there 2 older versions of the M-cards that do not work with the Roamio for premium stations with Verizon.

The only premium channels you need a paired cable card for on Verizon FiOS are HBO and Cinemax. Showtime, Starz, Epix, and The Movie Channel don't need a paired cable card to be able to view them.

I think you need a paired card to view the fox channels. I wouldn't call them premium channels.
