I got my cards the day after I noticed channel 998. They were installed with no problems. The warning for twenty minutes was not even close. I was watching TV in no more than five minutes.

If you have one receiver that is about ready to get a new card then will the receivers not needing the cards still receive channel 998 or only the receiver needing the card upgrade?

How many people have their NEW smartcards for their receivers.
Thanks for posting this poll. It provides a nice end of October snap shot of who has / has not already received their new smart cards.

BTW it makes me feel a little better that the majority, like me, have/had NOT gotten theirs yet.

I put in my Smartcard last week. I have one of the original 622's. I didn't realize it came without one, until I opened the door to replace the old card and found the slot to be empty. All channels were up and running within 5 minutes.:up

I got mine last week, which made me VERY happy, since I installed the Eastern Arc setup a month or so ago. Now everything is PERFECT!!! :D

Almost half have got their cards. I guess that we can take a poll at the end of the month(Nov.) and see the difference. Moderator please close this poll.
