i think you can still get them on a designated ppv channel. With that said, easiest workaround would be to stop by and pick up a box at your local cable store and drop the thing off the next day.
I just called TimeWarner and they said I could! Their phone system seems unfriendly to this but it does seem possible. Thank you! I can't wait for ufc 74 on aug 25...I've been watching since ufc 12.talmania said:I did this with the last big MMA event (Liddell vs Jackson). I could even record the event, however it would only let me go back like 90 minutes or so.
Update: Sadly I called TW and they let me rent UFC74 this evening and the girl said "it will be on both your cable cards"...tonight all I see is grey screen of death. I called support who said that they should never of sold it since they can't sell PPV that way...only when 2 way cards come out later in the year. I am disappointed and frustrated and wonder if weekend tech support is simply confused. I guess I'll not be able to rent PPV sports until 2008.talmania said:I did this with the last big MMA event (Liddell vs Jackson).

I don't know if my cards are paired properly...can you tell me how I would check this?sfhub said:Are you sure your CableCARDs are paired properly and if so, how are you determining that?
Receiving premium channels is not the indicator to look for.jrm01 said:If you are receiving other premium channels I would think that it is not a pairing problem, but an authorization problem. Any time you add a premium channel the company has to make a change in their billing system and then send out an authorization hit to the cablecard (based on the card serial number). Most likely they did not authorize your card properly (if at all).
I took photos of the diagnostic screens since I thought that was easiest. Am I paired correctly?sfhub said:Bring up the CableCARD Conditional Access diagnostic menu and post the contents of the screen. For Motorola cards, "Host Validation" should say "Valid ##" I don't remember what SA cards say, but someone here will chime in.
CP Auth Received means they are paired properly so it isn't a pairing problem.Twiddler said:I took photos of the diagnostic screens since I thought that was easiest. Am I paired correctly?
