I've been trying to hook up a new tivo premiere this evening and the acquiring channels is stuck on 75%. After doing some reading I'm beginning to wonder what I've gotten myself into. These cablecards sound like a monumental pain in the @ss. And it doesn't help that most service providers seem clueless on how to to get these thing going....or purposefully act like they don't. So anyway, from what I can tell my cablecard is paired. The guy on the phone says it does show paired on his end. He can send it a signal and it did something so he can talk to it. He gave me the usual line of maybe it just needs some time to acquire channels. Yah right, I'm going to get up in the morning and its still going to be sitting at 75%. I've done some reading and I keep seeing mentioned "Con:" and the "Val:" field under the conditional access screen on the cable card. It's says "No" on my screen by Con and the Val field says "V 0x28". From my understanding the V in the Val field is a good thing but the No in the Con is obviously not right. Can somebody give some help on what is going on and maybe give me some things to point out to the knuckleheads at my cable provider when I call them tomorrow for the third time. I can already see where this is heading. They won't get it solved over the phone and are going to charge me $35 for some other knucklehead to come out and after a few hours MAYBE get it going. Thanks.
