    Its my understanding that when using Tivo Roamio and Premiere DVR's that the TWC no copy flag is not an issue since these
    Tivos stream instead of transfer. Can someone confirm this for me?

    This is true, unless you want to take the content with you, like on an airplane without WiFi

    TWC Southwest Ohio is currently pushing a Tuning Adapter software update to F.1901, as had been predicted by the national CableCARD help desk. My TA is blinking rapidly and continuously and SDV channels are not tunable. Calling the local TWC support number yields a pre-recorded message that there is a service problem resulting in some channels being black and they're working to fix it. However, TA diagnostics are available and they display the new software version.

    Well, the TA light just went steady and all channels are now tunable. Amazing. The last time they pushed an update (to F.1501) it disabled all TA's on the system for an entire day.

    Fingers crossed that it fixes the tuning failure / missed recording problem.

    Roamio< > Premiere streaming works seamlessly regardless of no copy flag. Transfers don't. S2 transfer to any others works. S3's are the ones that can't transfer or stream. My THD is now like an orphan

    Also pushed to Central Ohio last night. I woke up to the "A Tuning Adapter has been detected" screen on my Tivo. Thought maybe there was a power outage with the weather last night, but it occurred to me it might have been the long rumored .1901 update. I then checked my TA and, sure enough, it is was running .1901. Now to watch this over the next week or so and see if some of the quirks of the old firmware go away.

    That would really be nice. I've talked to the national CableCARD desk twice about this F.1901 update and it's disappointing how little they know about what it fixes, just vague ideas it might have something to do with Roamio-related problems.

    From TiVo Central > Settings & Messages > Account & System Info > Tuning Adapter

    This will place you into the Tuning Adapter menus. Arrow down to something like "Versions..." and hit select. The firmware version is something in the form "STA1.0.0_1520...."

    Tuning Adapter Diagnostics ... Versions and MACs .... FLASH:

    The F.1901 is just the last part of the version text.

    This is for Cisco TA's. TWC uses Motorola TA's in some regions and I'm sure the version info is different for those.

    Thanks guys, found it.
    The TA on my xl4 has F.1901, not sure when it updated.
    But, I seem to remember the screen saying a tuning adapter is connected, a while back.

    I think I saw that about 2-3 nights ago but didn't really look into it. I thought maybe the TA belched or something. I'm going to check when I get home.

    :-D Great experience with TWC CSR.
    My tuning adapter got fouled up with a reversed power switch. (TA was off when its front panel light was on and TA on when front panel light off.) Cable card hotline guy said it happens sometimes & exchange it. So I go to the local office & CSR (Anna) brings out the new TA, pulls up my account, exclaims, & says have you been wondering why your cable bill is so high? I replied that yes I had but hadn't gotten around to seeing about it yet. Long story short : I walk out of the local office paying $100 less per month for the same service (phone, TV, & Internet) and will have all previous overcharges refunded on future bills.
    Plus, the TA works. :-D

    Somehow overcharging you $100 indefinitely until it was accidentally discovered doesn't qualify as a "great experience" to me. Although I'm so used to bad experiences with TWC that I am relatively uplifted when they occasionally do something nice.

    I live in the Triad area in NC. We've been getting bombarded with channel lineup change notices. After going to the TWC site, it looks like this is part of a national change. Has anyone else been through the new lineup change? Did you have any problems with the guide getting updated correctly?

    This happened in WNY several months ago. The only real hassle was that all season passes needed to be deleted and re-added.

    Thanks. I was afraid of that. I was hoping that there was some magical channel remapping that would happen.

    Normally a channel change would be re-mapped automatically to your season pass.

    But in this case, the old channel and new channel are different. So your old SP's were on, for example, FX HD or FX (SD). But the new channel is just FX.

    Well, it's been a while since I last posted here, some 2 years or so. TiVo HD3 still going strong. Cable cards and TA, not so much. We cut our cables TV connection a week ago now.

    I know ComCast (might) is coming, but for now, our bill just went way down...
