HDHomeRun PRIME Status: Not Staged & No Channels

HDHomeRun PRIME Status: Not Staged & No Channels

Manufacturer advice:
The logs show that the CableCARD is reporting that you are not subscribed to any channels. Contact your provider and tell them you're getting a message that you're not subscribed on every channel. They'll probably need to verify that the correct channel packages have been added to the card and send it a refresh signal. On some providers they may also need to send a "cold hit". 

The card being not staged is an issue. That means the card is disabled and will not decode any channels. Usually the cold hit will change that over to Ready.

Re: HDHomeRun PRIME Status: Not Staged & No Channels

When I called the cablecard support line, it took me to Tier 1 support for 30 minutes, then Tier 2 for 30 minutes, and despite all that, their solution was for me to get a cable box from the store. It seems like the cablecard support line just goes to the clueless regular comcast customer service now.


A week after I left this forum post, I did online chat, referring to this post. They troubleshot the issue and had it resolved in 15 minutes.
