SiliconDust HDHomeRun CableCard all channels DRM blocked

Hello, it seems other users have had this problem searching around the forum.

I have successfully activated a CableCard, and can see the channels I subscribe to listed on my SiliconDust Prime device.

However, every single channel is marked as DRM and therefore blocked - this seems like an error; only a few premium channels should require copy protection.

I'm having the same problem. All my channels say DRM.

It turned out the problem was bad cable card. After receiving the new card and redoing all the channel search. All the DRM channels have been removed. Also, the channels that were missing they were able to fix with a signal sent to the card.
