Any clear channels in N. Texas?

Message 1 of 3

I bought a new TiVo yesterday.  I don't have cable cards yet.  I see only a white screen for all channels (2-49).  I'm wondering if this is normal.  I successfully completed Guided Setup andI have a Verizon 6416 that's working fine.


Does anyone know if M cards are available in Irving, TX.

Yes M cards are available. If your TV has a digital tuner or qam tuner just search for the channels with that and you can get them if you have Verizon service.

I found them in the 67- range this past Saturday while playing around waiting for the tech to arrive with my M cards.  Have your signal attenuators ready.  Last couple of days the infamous pixelation issue has been noted on network stations (ABC and FOX specifically on both Monday and Wednesday night recordings).  If push comes to shove I'll move my coax from my antenna input on my Sony to the antenna input of the TiVo.  Common problem with the TiVo's.  Noticed tonight that there is a 30 day service refund with TiVo should I elect to go back to the 6416's.
