    I'm considering gifting my XL4 Elite and a 2XL or Premiere to a friend in NOVA. I'd be interested in the Fios fees for 2 CableCARDS in that vicinity (Herndon/Reston etc). I have a Mini I could do for him but since I've the additional Premieres maybe that's a less effort install with existing COAX in the house. Very dependent on what's found in the current routing I might also add a 6200Q to his equipment. He'll be removing a G1100 (rented) with a G1100 that I have now.

    Not sure if their prices are fixed across States but here in Rhode Island Verizon Fios charges $4.99 per month per cable card.

    So he'd lose $12 HD, $8 DVR and I believe the $8 2nd box and just have 4.99 X 2? I believe the G1100 is a $14 as well so I see this is likely a very good move for him.

    He would also lose on-demand, if he cares.

    When I put the G1100 on-line Fios will update the 'firmware' to the now current for the service area?

    I think that once booted up it should install any current updates. I am not 100 percent sure but You may have to get a technician to come over to run Ethernet from the terminal box versus coax which is generally used because of the Verizon guide on their boxes. This may not be the case though.... like I said I am not completely sure. Once Ethernet is run you can also buy your own wireless router.

    We'll be replacing a G1100 (rented) with an 'owned' G1100 that I've had for some time. My hardware is 1.03 and firmware
    1.2.0.36.100.1. Recent I believe is maybe quite different.

    Maybe 9/2020 this was current in the NOVA service area I believe.

    Firmware Version:02.02.00.16
    Hardware Version:1.03
    UI Version:v1.0.388
