Is this still possible to do?

all series 2 units have 3.1 or higher, which means that they all use dtv for the pvr service activation. if you want info on modifying your card to get that tier, then look elsewhere. fixsub will bypass the call as a privacy tool, but you still need the tier.

theoretically, the tier could be bypassed in software, but i doubt many of the people who could pull it off would post how, since its not really a pressing issue. if you are stealing dtv, then you can find out from them how to fix the 'issue'. if you are a legit sub, few people have a problem with the $5 per month blanket tivo fee

if you are talking about an standalone unit, you can generate your own guide data, but most of the tools havent been tested on s2 units.

please dont post the same question in multiple forums. pick one, then wait for an answer
