I recently moved to Florida from Oregon. In Oregon, I used a Ceton infiniTV card connected to my computer with a CableCard and was able to use Windows Media Center to watch and record TV.
I have not been able to get Windows Media Center to work since I moved. I have had a service tech at my home. He tried several CableCards and had the CableCard firmware was updated.
Before I give up and return the CableCard, I did a search on the this board and found this listing:
Even though this poster is using a HDHomeRun Prime, the issue seems to be exactly the same as mine.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I concur that the issue seems to be administrative and on the comcast side of things. Unpairing/repairing the cable card repeatedly is one idea. Do it ten times!
Demonstrating the cablecard functioning properly after being paired into a different cablecard device is another idea, if you can find another cable card device.
Comcast SD non-DVR cable boxes actually use(d) cablecards, so maybe...
How about trying one of the old SD cable-boxes that has cable-card in a locked cage attached to the back of the cable-box. Demonstrate that it can tune channels. With permission/help of comcast/tech, use the special screwdriver to remove the cage and swap the known-working-cablecard into the HD-homerun and do the cable-card pairing process and test...
Thanks for responding. I will try the the unpairing/repairing idea.
I'm afraid I don't have any other device that uses a cablecard. But I have tried 5 or so cablecards.
I will post again if there's an update!
Marty_S, I got your private message regarding your cable card issues. I'll follow up with you there.
Thanks so much for helping.
CableCARD ID:<forums violation>
Host ID:<forums violation>
No sure where to find the Data ID
I got the CableCARD ID and Host ID from a Ceton Diagnostic tool
Marty_S, sorry to hear tech ops wasn't able to resolve the issue. Please post again if you need further assistance.
