Hello all. I have been reading these forums for a bit and since I have a question that I haven't seen posted, I decided to register. I want to apologize for my stupidity in advance. I am not a tech savvy person.
My HD just died a slow horrible death and decided to get a Premiere XL. Before I set it up, I need to know if I can use the same cable card that was in my previous unit. Also, would I need to call the cable company to activate the cable card, being that is was already activated?
If your HD had M-cards (unlikely) you can use one of them for the Premiere. Otherwise you will need an M-card for the Premiere for dual tuner functionality. The card is paired with a serial number on the DVR, so you will have to get your cable co involved regardless.
