    Hi there everyone. I would love to hear from anyone who has successfully installed their Premeire with Verizon Fios, and NOT used a cable card, and been able to watch some channels. I can't get the card here for a while, and want to hook it up, and be able to watch shows, not donig all the fancy stuff the PRemiere does.

    If anyone was able to do this, could you kindly post about it? Thanks.

    Just plug it in and you'll get the unencrypted channels. I did the same before I got my cable card from them.

    OK. I"m going to try re-installing it this weekend. I'm glad to hear someone was able to do that. Gives me some hope too.

    Ingeneral you will only get your local channels with FIOS. All others are encrypted.

    be warned, the HD channels will not have guide data without a cableCARD.
    So you can watch, but that's about it, and it's locals only.
