I'm in north Dallas and I have an M-card. The installer didn't know the difference between the M and S cards. I can't see how they train them to do anything other than put connectors on coax cable. Other than that, they are untrained buffoons.
Are you allowed to record 4 programs with 2 multistream cards or is that just wishful thinking?Skittles said:I have a single M card in my TiVo HD, as well. It multistreams fine, and I'm able to record two shows at once using just the one card.
When the tech came out to perform my install, he swore up and down that I'd need two cablecards, since "their system wasn't set up for multistream yet".
When the TiVo went to authorize the card, it told him to remove the second card, since it was receiving multistream off the first card.
Who did you contact in getting the mcard activated properly?Zaph32 said:I am in Frisco - two Tivos, each with one MCard.
It was serious hell getting them to activate properly. Your issue has to do with provisioning and activation, you don't need more (or different) cablecards.
The trick is getting in touch with the people who can help you, because the phone reps can NOT.
