    Anybody know what this No time GBAM means in english?

    Google search didn't give me much on the English side.

    English as in you don't understand the answer? Either do I, but:

    CA Time
    Conditional access (CA) time received through the global broadcast authenticated message (GBAM)
    [Time] Example: Tue Jun 12, 2007, 10:08:00 PM GMT Note: This value matches the current time to the nearest minute.
    Waiting For Update—time not yet received
    Time GBAM
    Indicates the number of Time GBAM messages processed
    [Integer > 1]
    0—time GBAMs not yet processed

    It's a Cisco thing. I have Moto.

    Yep, I found that doc also, but what it actually mean? What are GBAM's, etc.

    I hope this is not the tivo. It just turned 3 yrs old last month. I don't want to buy a new one. I might have to go with Xfinity X1 "junk" if turns out Tivo is the issue. Hate to leave the Tivo family after 20 yrs with Tivo, but tossing out $700 for a lifetime bolt just isn't a great deal.

    Not sure. Checking my Conditional Access menu, I have an item EMM CSN: that is 0x01/02 07/22/18 09:06, which I'm guessing when I received something equal to that GBAM.

    "global broadcast authenticated message"

    Maybe it's not getting info from your Cable Provider?
