If you stop subscription are there any channels free if so how many?
I lost all the Stingray Music channels as well. Not sure when that happened, tho. I hadn't tried them for months.
I get no Stingray channels. But I did a few months ago when they switched over from the old service.
Until today I never tried to tune into a Stingray channel. The ones I tried today do not work.
Well, as reddit would put it, I Am the Ashole.
I pulled out from the dustbin my old OLED Series 3 Tivo with PLS.
Took the cablecard from the Bolt, popped it into the S3, and immediately, I got the basic cable channels, which I didn't get on the Bolt with the same cablecard.
I called the direct number of the woman who helped me yesterday morning (she's WFH, so I had her cell number! LOL), and she quickly bound the CC to my S3, and within two minutes, all the channels are being received.
So that can only mean my Bolt is busted and can no longer detect or translate or decrypt any digital signals. When doing the channel strength test, I get 0 digital signal on all channels.
So any ideas how I can get it fixed? I see Weakknees has a $50 mail in diagnosis service, I guess I'll try that unless anyone has any other ideas.
And boy howdy! This S3 is SLOOOOOOOOOW!
I'm sure it feels that way these days, but man do I miss that OLED screen showing exactly what two programs were recording and the time
I just moved from NJ to CT - hurt to give up FiOS and switch to Optimum. I have Altice One and a Premier XL4. I have a cable card for the Premier but have not been able to get it activated. A few CSRs have told me Tivo's/Cable cards do not work with Altice One. Can someone confirm that is true? I see a few of you have your own cable modems so I assume that is the only way to get a Tivo to work with Optimum/Altice these days.
Do you have a coax splitter with one feed going to Altice 1 and the other the Tivo?
I'm no expert, but they should be separate issues (activating the cablecard and the Altice One).
Yes, we miss FIOS A LOT!
Yes the lines are split, Optimum is telling me that a cable card will not work on another box as long as there is an Altice One in the house.
Ok, like I said, I'm no expert. I don't know why that would be, but whatever.
I'm still waiting to hear from Weaknees about my broken Bolt I sent back for repair.
Likely not a technical restriction, but just that their billing system can't handle both on the same account.
It’s been almost 3 weeks since the aforementioned V58 fix happened on Oct. 2nd. I can report that I no longer see any freezing, black screens or V58 errors. However, I am still seeing significant pixelation on SOME channels (Travel Channel, for example) on my Bolt and all 4 minis. Anyone else still having this same trouble?

PS - I have a brand new hard drive in after a fatal failure, so that should be excluded as a culprit
Well, I sent my BOLT to weaKnees for repair, and they couldn't find anything wrong with it, using the OTA tuner. I told them the problem was somewhere between the cablecard and the tuner(s), and can they look into that. Well, they said they can't diag motherboard issues like that, so they're sending it back to me un-repaired. So now I have a TiVo BOLT that basically works, but just won't decrypt any cablecard channels (although it does receive the "CP Auth Received" message when binding the cablecard. So I guess it's a doorstop now?
So I bought a Roamio Plus with PLS here on TCF for $210. It's here, but the BOLT isn't back with the cablecard, so once that gets here, I hopefully can bind the CC to that Tivo.
Not sure what to do with the BOLT now. I guess it would be good for someone who only does OTA?
i am suffolk county long island. I agree the v58 is fixed but i get once in a while some pixelation, it is very small and very short, i think the small amount of pixelation is from cablevision equipment and it caused the tivo to lose audio and throw the v58 error. but now i think tivo modified the software so it dosen't do the v58 thing when a small amount of pixelation happens. this is much improved. THANK YOU TIVO.
if you are getting alot of pixelation you might want to try this cable amp, it worked well for me.
Was it TiVo that fixed the problem, or Optimum on their headend?
Hank, sent you a PM.
i am just guessing, but since the v58 error dosen't come up anymore but you see pixilation on the channels that used to be a problem. my guess is that tivo modified their software
here is some info i sent tivo support 2 months ago
yesterday I filed a report with FCC and Optimum Long Island called me back today. They basically dropped all support for cable cards and if you want to get e.g. HBO, you need a tuning adapter which they don't provide anymore. I think they want to eliminate Tivos to promote their own DVRs. The channel guide for cablecars out here only lists a few channels

I just received a Tivo Edge as a replacement for my Bolt+ which died with a bad disk. I saw the V58 error coming up for a few seconds, but since early October I can't get most of the channels I pay big money for with Optimum.
Optimum claims the pixilation and V58 errors came from them updating the system, when they started to stop supporting cable cards.
do you have a tuning adapter ? Optimum told me you can only get some extra channels with a tuning adapter and Starz and Showtime you can't get at all anymore with a cable card.
