I believe that there is currently a project to convert all TiVos to a cardless system and that new TiVos will be cardless on installation.

Hi,

 

Thanks for the reply...couldn't find anything in the set guide about inserting card but put V+ card in anyway...had issues with channels cutting out, picture pixelating, catch up & on demand...I'll try it without the card in.

Hi kj56,

 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums Smiley Happy

 

The smart cards for TiVo® and the V+ are not compatible with the other so please don't use the V+ smart card in the TiVo®

 

As you've already found out it can cause further issues. 

 

If your box needed a smart card then this would have already been included with the TiVo®. 

 

If you are still having any issues, without the V+ smart card then let us know.

 

Thanks,
