    Sorry - didn't see that picture on the Comcast site, but there IS a picture of the back here.

    But thanks in any event . . .

    jtmal0723, can you confirm that the back panel appears essentially the same as in Cisco's specsheet (which has a warning that it might not look that way in real life :))?

    That's what it looks like, I can confirm that.

    I though that the Tuning Adapter downloads its own channel list separate from the Cable Cards. If so then Comcast could leave the channels off the cableCARD listing and the TA would pick them up so only people with the TA would even see them listed.

    did she take any info from the tuning adapters (like serial number or mac address or something) and add it to your account?

    He said earlier in this thread that they scanned the box so presumably it was attached to the account this way.

    Wow, it's a monster. I too thought we'd be getting a dongle of some sort. But this is another piece of video equipment.

    I have an incredibly simple setup. A TiVo S3 below the HDTV. Mounted on the wall, wires hidden, clean, stark.

    No more.

    Hey, you can always eschew use of the Tuning Adapter and settle for the non-switched services in your system, maintaining clean, sparse estethics of your setup. Again, I could care less how big it is as long as I get back the channels I've lost access to.

    No IR receiver so you could be creative and find a way to hide this. The one for Motorola networks is much smaller. That one is the size of a Cable modem. This one is big but again no IR receiver. Then again you have to have a cisco network in order to use this one.

    Please elaborate on this, because it's too vague a statement. If you're referring to SciAtl cablecards, then yes, that is true.

    Yes I am referring to using this only on cisco networks. The Cisco models are designed for SA/Cisco Headends while the Motorola one works on Motorola headends. This applies to both Cable Cards and the tuning resolver.

    Please! TWC in San Antonio - Are there any TWC/San Antonio employees reading this forum? I can't get a whisper out of the local office, but do have written confirmation from TWC Corporate lawyers that the tuning resolver is coming by the end of the year. You'd think that somebody in the local office would see something coming down the road soon.

    Just installed my 2 Cisco Tuning adapters today. Just more wires to deal with. Coax in/Coax out USB Cable to Tivo and Power Supply Cable. Would have been nice if they had supplied an extra Coax to run to the Tivo, but then again, the units were free.

    I was assuming they'd include a coax patch cable - pretty surprising that they don't. I guess that they expect it to be installed by the cable guy, who can just make a patch cable on-site.

    Is that 2 per Tivo? 1 for each CableCard?

    No. You only need 1 adapter per TiVo.

    You guys who have these things--TiVo added a Tuning Adapter menu item under Messages & Settings->Account & System Information. What do you see when access this? If you can post some pictures of the dialog or dialogs displayed as you walk through that section, I'm sure that we're all curious :). (If you can't post pictures, describe it as thoroughly as possible).

    Thanks!
