Does anyone have PERSONAL experience using

* MythTV (or any other PVR software)
* FiOS New York / Long Island
* Cable Card Equipped DHPrime
* Watching encryped HBO?

I can watch all other stations but the Encrypted 'premium' stations are not showing.

The HD Config utility does not show them either.

My other TiVo units are showing HBO with no problem.

Thanks in advance.

contact your cable provider and ensure that the cable card is activated for your account.

David, Cable card is activated.  Otherwise the other stations would not show up.

I believe the problem is related to the copy protection bit that HBO and other 'premium' stations turn on.

I want to know if anyone has actually had success in recording HBO from FiOS with a MythTV backend.

David,

I am guessing that this is because Microsoft adheres to the copy protection on the content.

Were you able to watch the video off-line or on another device?

Also, could you use the provided SiliconDust diag program, and watch HBO via VLCPlayer?

thanks for the quick reply!

Only playable using windows media center  .. never tried anything else.  The channels that I wasn't subscribed to were a still encrypted and I couldn't see them..  And yes I could record them but many had an expiry date.. Back in Canada I had to use an ir blaster

Thanks... Sorry for the long delay...

The copy protection _IS_ preventing MYTH from recording.
