    Do you mean SDV (Switched Digital Video)? Series 3 are designed to work with SDV and require a "Tuning Adapter" box furnished by TWC to do so. How well it works is another question. Many users lose some or all SDV channels fairly often and have to reboot the TA and TiVo to get them back (which takes around ten minutes).

    Please post your location or put it in your profile so it appears with each of your posts. SDV has been used by many TWC regions for years although it could be new in yours. Knowing your location helps other forum members help you.

    Yes the S3 works with SDV (works being relative.)

    If the cable service coax drop from the pole or vault is not new. I strongly suggest that you get time warner to replace the cable from the pole/vault to the tuning adapter.

    Also if after a couple of weeks you see a message about TiVo running out of guide data.
    Call TiVo and report the problem.
    Ultimately the tuning adapter will have to be put on a timer, so TiVo can complete the garbage collection process.
