    they tell me (time warner) that they only have capability for 2 tuners.. is it possible to rig something up to get all 4 tuners to record/work?

    Do you actually have a TiVo hooked up and can only get two tuners? Or, are you being told by customer service that TWC can only do 2 tuners at once. Over the last several months, it seems like most TWC regions have updated to the latest firmware for both CableCard and Tuning Adapter.

    Bottom line, don't listen to customer support. There are probably thousands of TiVo Roamio's on TWC systems doing 4 and 6 tuners right now.

    I have TWC Central Ohio and Tivos with 4 & 6 tuners use M-cards you can request from TWC.

    Whoever told you that is wrong unless they were just saying that their own DVR's only have 2 tuners. I have a Roamio Plus with a CableCard and Tuning Adapter on TWC right now and all 6 tuners work.

    The tuning adapter should have very little impact on the number of tuners your TiVo can utilize simultaneously. It's almost certainly a CableCard issue.

    Is your TiVo the 4-tuner Roamio model? Is your CableCard a Motorola or a Cisco? What firmware version is your card running?

    Certainly a new cable card (they've been legally required to issue at least 4 tuner cablecards for quite some time), but there are old tuning adapters out there also that might need to be updated.
