Advertisements So, I bit at the current $99 Lifetime transfer offer. It's time to retire my series 3, and the new Bolt+ arrived on Thursday. Thankfully, I had a great tech at Optimum. She unbound one of the two cable cards from the series 3, and bound it to the Bolt+. She sent three blasts out to the card. The first bound it, the second activated it for basic channels, and the third turned on premium channels. Those with Optimum know all about the bizarre cable card mapping that doesn't match their cable boxes. (SD still on 2, HD on 702, etc.) Everything worked as it was supposed to. Time for guided setup. Here's where the fun started. The Series 3 being decommissioned, as well as my premier and elite all show Optimum SD & CableCARD Freehold/Lakewood Digital as the cable provider in System Information. The choices coming up for my zip code had a few similar names, but nothing verbatim. I kept getting guide data for all of SD channels, but none of the 700 and 800, where all the HD channels come up on the cableCARD. Multiple resets, forced connections, scouring this forum, all to no avail. Now for the good news, so any other poor slob going through this can benefit from my experience. I went through guided setup again, but when selecting my cable provider, I selected Help Me Choose. By answering the questions, particularly about WCBS on channel 2, not WCBSDT, the end result is that I ended up with Optimum SD & CableCARD Freehold/Lakewood Digital as my cable provider, even though it isn't on the initial set of choices presented for my zip code. NOTE TO TIVO: Since this is the provider we need with Optimum's crazy card mapping, perhaps it should be?
