Re: Smart card

If it's a tivo it might not need the card

Re: Smart card

Andrew-H is right. TiVo's are now authorised via the network and no longer require a smart card.

Re: Smart card

Yes the TiVo no longer use Smart cards. I still have them in mine but thay don't do anything anymore as I can remove them if I wanted. Just can't be bother to reach round the back to remove them.

Re: Smart card

Hi there Peter80, 

Thank you for your post, I'd also like to thank the community for replying, as they are correct, our TiVo® boxes no longer use SmartCards. 

However, should you be talking about one of our Non TiVo® boxes, then if you've received a new box as a replacement for an older box, then you'd use the card that was in the old box, as this would now be married up to the new box. 

If however, the new box is an additional box, then the SmartCard should be in the packaging. If its not then I'd have to ask you to give us a call on 150 or 0345 454 1111 so we can look into this further for you. 

Apologies again. 

Huw
