    I just picked up an M cable card for self installation. I asked for instructions but the Comcast person said they didn't have any, I should check the internet. I've spent the past half hour searching, with no success.

    Can someone please provide a link for step by step instructions. I have an HD TiVo, but not the Premiere or newer series. I only require one M card to be inserted in the right hand slot, but that's all I know.

    TIA.

    Did you search on "CableCARD installation"? I did, and this was the second link on the screen. The only thing I would add is you might want to call 877-405-2298 rather than the number that will appear on your TV.

    Thank you SO much... that is exactly what I was looking for. I can't believe that Comcast gives out these cards with absolutely no instructions.

    Well, the FCC regulations only require them to allow self-install if your equipment manufacturer or vendor provides you with instructions on how to install a CableCARD and offers a toll-free telephone number for product support.

    There actually is a complete folder kit of information and instructions, including the phone number to call, that they provide with the CableCARD(s) when you pick them up at customer service centers around here. Maybe they were just out of the materials where you are.
