Coincidence or Verizon sabotage. I have had Verizon FIOS for almost 5 years. I have a TIVO with Verizon cable card in my den and Verizon set top box in my bedroom. I have never had a cable card issue. I got a new TIVO Roamio over a year ago, transferred my cable card from old TIVO in it. Verizon paired it and never had a problem until today. I was recording 4 different shows including GOT at 9pm and my cable card went out. I don't think this was a coincidence at all. A rogue tech at Verizon who supports the strikers can easily deauthorize cable cards. Think about it. This isn't some random problem that just happened when GOT premiered their new season. The strikers goal is too cause as much disruption as possible. DSLReports which monitors cable services all over the country has on their front page that Verizon is accusing cable workers of sabotaging the system in New York, NJ, Pa, and Mass. Many people use cable cards and have TIVO's which are clearly superior to the Verizon set top box. My set top box is working fine and I am getting all the channels. I called VZ customer service and their automated system is trying to reset my cable card. It's not working. One channel will come in and I switch to another and get an error message.
