You have a perfectly working HD Tivo with an M-Card? You lucky dog!TiVoDoughBoy said:New TiVo HD
Amazingly, yes! Even better, when I called Comcast to schedule the visit (Comcast requires a tech visit to install CableCards) supposedly Comcast didn't have M-Cards, at least in our area (Greater Philadelphia), so I asked for two CableCards.jazmaan said:You have a perfectly working HD Tivo with an M-Card?

I really intended this thread to be for people who have the new HD Tivo up and working with cablecards installed. I'm trying to determine whether the majority of HD Tivo owners are having difficulities or not. From reading this forum some people might get the impression that the HD Tivo is crap. That may or may not be true. But if you're having a trouble-free HD Tivo experience with cablecards installed, please let us know.c-surfer said:Original Series 3 install in January 2007 by Time Warner San Diego with Sony HDMI
Zero troubles. Tech stuffed the cable cards in, telephoned his dispatcher with some numbers off the Tivo CableCard screen, and it was done.
No trouble since then. Works beautifully. Love the HD picture.
FWIW then the subject would have been better off being "TivoHD, No Problems Whatsoever?"jazmaan said:I really intended this thread to be for people who have the new HD Tivo up and working with cablecards installed.
includes S3's since they are part of the "Tivo HD experience" however they would not be included if one were referring to "TivoHD experience"a completely successful Tivo HD experience
My experience with the box itself is about the same.mike_camden said:Tivo HD - it arrived Thursday. Slight problems. The cable card install was pretty bad, but I blame Comcast, not Tivo. Neither the installer nor the dispatcher knew anything about cablecards. both kept trying to convince me that cablecards weren't worth it and I should just return the Tivo. The installer finally gave up and left (at least he kept the cable cards with me). I'm still trying to work it out with Comcast to get everything fixed (all is working now on both cable cards except HBO and Starz).
The Tivo HD has slight pixelation (I've seen it three or four times in the menus and on a couple of live shows). On the live shows, I see it every five minutes or so; not too severe. The good news is that it's so much more responsive and functional than the Comcast Moto DCT 6416 I was using. As long as the cable card issue gets resolved and pixelation doesn't crop up too much, I'll keep it and be happy.
