Wow, this comment was absolutely 100% wrong, who wrote this?
I didn't realize the Dual was a CC tuner
OP, you're still confusing me a lot. You said the cable length to the router would be 700'. Now everything is working with a switch? You had a network cable connection available this whole time?
As for showing you the channels you don't receive so that you can subscribe to them, that's not going to work. Neither should pay per view. The silicondust (and Ceton and Hauppauge) cablecard tuners don't allow 2-way communication. So you're not going to be able to go to a channel you don't pay for in the guide and press a button to change your subscription like you would on a DVR box from your cableco.
When everything is working as it should the message in WMC will read, "You are not currently subscribed to this channel, please contact your cable provider if you would like to change your subscription"
Additionally, the pay-per-view stuff won't allow you to authorize and view it from the HDHR dual. (I'm not 100% sure, but I believe you can call your provider and pay by phone)
So if you want additional channels you'll have to just call up Metrocast sales department and modify your subscription
