So after reading all the recent posts about problems in the West Hollywood/LA area with the scrambled channels not showing, I called TWC last night to try and get someone out here next week to fix the problem, prepared to tell them about copy protection flag problem (I figured I'd only mention SDV & a tuning adapter if I was told the protection flag problem had been fixed and/or wasn't an issue in my area). Not only did the tech know about the issue, but - surprise! - informed me I had a service call with a supervisor scheduled for today. Nice of them to give me advance notice but hey, at least someone with the ability to get something done (hopefully) was coming out. I also checked to see if the problem had somehow magically been resolved, because sometimes the Blue Fairy really does intervene and all is well in the kingdom of TiVo. Supervisor, accompanied by the tech who was here yesterday, just left; they spent about five minutes here because, lo and behold, the Blue Fairy, played today by someone on the tech desk the supervisor had asked to perform some work on my account, had intervened, and the problem was fixed. I apologized to the two men for having them come out for nothing, but reiterated that, as of last night, nothing had changed. The tech that came yesterday seemed a bit hot under the collar, but the supervisor stopped him, repeating the "advance work" statement. The supervisor also gave me his name and cell phone number, in case it went out again. So, no tuning adapter needed, at least so far, which I guess also means no SDV, at least not yet, plus the bonus of a supervisor's cell phone number. Not a bad day, all in all, especially since I thought it would be Monday at the earliest that I would get my scrambled channels back. And still glad I found this thread, not only for the info I got on the current problem, but for possible future use as well, because if anyone can screw up a system that's working, it's Time Warner. Have I mentioned that I hate Time Warner?
