This channel is not authorized. Contact your provider For more information. V 58.

I bought the Tivo Bolt from on 29 August 2021. Initially I thought it was plug and play! I have yet to get it to work with Cox and it is the middle of October 2021. I have replaced 5 Media Cards and have several technicians visit with no success. I have gone through ALL the troubleshooting steps with a technician and on my own. I am very frustrated with Cox And Tivo. Both companies like to point the finger. I have the initial 10 channels but after that I get the V58 code. I should be authorized around 200 channels! When I was troubleshooting a tech pointed out that the EMM's were low? I am tempted to switch cable and internet providers!

    200 channels, what plan are you on?

    it escapes me when folks buy all sorts of gimmicks/streaming package, find out they don't work, then whine/blame cox.

      Have you brought TiVo into the discussion?  It sounds like bad hardware
