Ceton Digital Cable Activation fails

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,
I have a ceton pic express card with network tuner sharing enabled. I got everything working fine(on main media center and the 1 tuner i access over ethernet on my laptop) except for viewing HBO on my laptop which comes with an error to activate. I passed DCA but i keep getting an error that my key is invalid so i cant watch HBO but other channels show up fine. My question is can i copy the key from my main media center and use it on the laptop? Will it cause any issues on my main machine if i do that? Both systems have 64 bit windows 7 but different hardware.

Thanks

Open an elevated command prompt and run these two commands:
cscript %systemroot%\\system32\\slmgr.vbs -ipk MVV4F-R2T29-WBHYJ-BBFQY-J64XX
cscript %systemroot%\\system32\\slmgr.vbs -ato

Then try again. If that still doesn't work, run this command and paste the output here
cscript %systemroot%\\system32\\slmgr.vbs -dlv

Did you run the Digital Cable Advisor?

Did it pass?

If it did, it should have populated the code in greyed out color in the activation box.

If you did not pass Digital Cable Advisor, you may not be able to view some channels, even if you use the code that Eric gave you.

Best course of action is to fix whatever is not letting you pass the Digital Cable Advisor.
