They just told me the same thing.
My setup here in Rochester is slightly more functional than AgentMunroe's.
I can tune in all my channels that were working prior to installing the adapter, even after a TiVo restart. Also, my standard def channels now appear to be tuning via digital simulcast -- new recordings do not have a quality listed, and the channels take a moment to tune in.
Unfortunately, I still can't tune any HD channels that I couldn't receive before (such as Universal HD or Food Network HD).
I checked the DVR diags, and I do have "Operational, Ready, Yes" listed under the TA.
Did you happen to try this procedure?
Changing the channels doesn't seem to do anything...I still get black screens for the SDV HD channels.
Thanks for the link... just tried it, it does not work for me unfortunately.
I just got my TWC Rochester tuning adapter and it doesn't work either. I have an HD tivo with v11 software. It says connected but i don't get and sdv channels.
Digital simulcast is a two-edged sword. Here in Albany, TW has set ALL channels to copy once (CCI=1 I think). Including the "analog" local stations that are digitally simulcast. The ONLY channels we can transfer via Tivo To Go are the 6 local broadcast HD channels. That's it.
Hrm. Well, I could've sworn earlier tonight I had a solid green light on the TA and something other than "Not Available" and "Initializing" for the DVR Diagnostics.
Right now, that's all I seem to be getting though. I actually just had the TiVo reset itself from me unplugging/replugging the TA.
Not sure anything else is going to happen right now - I'm off to bed. As far as I know, my tech appointment is still on for tomorrow, not that it's going to do anything. Perhaps I'll play around more in the morning and call in to try and get someone higher up the ladder.
Well, I have had the same experience as others with the TA in Rochester,NY. The Tivo recognizes the adapter, the adapter has a solid light, but I can only tune the same channels I was able to tune before and I cannot tune any of the switched channels. I am calling support right now to see what they say.
TiVo HD owner in Rochester. Got my TA yesterday same issue as everyone else. I can tune all the channels I used to get just fine but get nothing new. Diagnostics show everything in the TA is ready.
I called Time Warner and they said it is an issue with the TA software *not* TiVo but they have no ETA.
They fixed this real fast. Last night I forced a connection and all the Guide data downloaded to my Tivos.
I just called TW Rochester to report my problem with the TA adapter the tech on the line did something on his end and my TA adapter is working now, I can tune SDV channels now !!!!
Okay, so I've got all my channels now.... Very happy!! (though there's still nothing on to watch!) My next question, how is TWCNYC able to do this without the tuning adapter?
What did you ask? I just tried and they couldn't help me.
Nothing in particular I just told the tech that had installed the TA and I couldn't tune SDV channels still, he asked me which specific channel numbers, put me on hold for a couple of minutes, when he came back on the line he asked me to test again specific channel numbers, he did something, more testing and after that they started working.
One thing I did noticed afterward is that it seems I can only tune SDV channels with one of the Tivo tuners only, but I am not 100% sure about that, my wife is watching TV right now and can't verify.
I am in Rochester too and can only see SDV channels with one of the tuners. The tuner that cannot see SDV is CableCard #1 and it has never had a status of Ready in CableCard Diagnostics so I am wondering if that is part of the issue. It worked ok for non-SDV channels, but with the TA it can't see any SDV channels and actually lost the ability to see some of the non-SDV channels. Weird... TW is coming out tomorrow morning with a spare CableCard and TA.....
I don't think mine is the same issue, if you have two cablecards, I assume you have a Series3. I have a Tivo HD with a single Mcard. I will do more testing as soon as the wife is done watching TV and report what I see exactly.
Well, after the good news earlier, now I have bad news to report . I was able to tune the SDV channels earlier, but now I am not able to. I called TW Rochester again and they tried sending a reset to the TA and the cablecard, the tech said that fixed the problem for another person, but that didn't work for me. The tech was very honest saying that he didn't know what else to do, so I told him I was going to try and call them again in a couple of days to see if they have any other ideas.
Thanks for the Rochester updates. I'm going to hook mine up again today and see what happens.
By the way, I have the series 3 Tivo and TWC provided the SA multi-stream cable card, so I am running just that card in slot 1.
From what I understand the Series3 needs two cable cards to support two tuner recording even though the individual M-cards support two tuners. So if you have only one card installed you should only be able to record only one show at a time. I am recording so much now, I could use a third tuner or another Tivo!
