Re: [TIVO] Here comes the copy protection bit (letter)
I don't wanna start a new thread so I'll just put it in here. Can you get Cablecards from the FiOS stores or do you need to order them via phone or online? Ordered components for a HTPC with the Ceton Tuner card (been planning this for a while, finally gave in) and am obviously going to need a Cablecard.
I picked up my last 2 CableCARDs from the local FiOS store so I didn't have to pay the stupid flat rate shipping fee - it's pretty bad when the shipping fee for a tiny $4/mo card is $10.
Both my cards were activated instore so when I went to do the self-install online they "actived" almost instantly. Of course this meant that they arn't paired to the devices they're in (even though in the self-install you enter all the data required for pairing). I'm just going to play the wait and see game come the beginning of August if the cards give me trouble on the affected premium channels. If problems do occur it can't hurt to ask for a credit to lower the bill considering the double rate increases this year...
