    Question Moving to a new city: any suggestions/warning w.r.t. locals?

    I currently have locals working without any additional tweaks from a (somewhat) standard 2.5xtreme unit.

    # uname -a
    Linux (none) 2.1.24-TiVo-2.5 #11 Mon Aug 20 19:10:12 PDT 2001 ppc unknown)

    I am moving to another state in the next month, and therefore I will also be switching my locals through DIRECTV to another region.

    Is there anything that I will need to do in order to get these new locals to show up and to have the old locals "go away?" I know that it takes awhile for the locals to show up in the first place after a fresh install (which was about 45 minutes for me the last time). Should I expect this to work automagically or will I need to modify any files or run any additional scripts?

    If you are a subbed DTV customer, they will authorize your card to get the locals in the new location. If you are using a "test card", well then you should know how to deal with it. You don't need to do anything with the Tivo, except perhaps check to make sure the Channels You Receive is properly updated after the move.
