    That is the flash time warner has in the T/A in my system.

    The cable guy should run a new (test) cable from the service access directly to the t/a with no splits and see what happens.

    There is no way to access the splitter in the ta, that I know.

    he actually said he was going to do that, then got distracted by a phone call packed up and left. I have another tech coming out tomorrow, so I hope we can start with your suggestion

    thanks

    So while you are waiting go get a high band width 1 to 2 splitter and install thusly:
    cable service to split input.
    split output 1 to ta
    split output 2 to TiVo.
    Wouldn't hurt to cap the ta out that is not used.

    update... last tech swapped out cable and got it working without a splitter, but the nhl channels that i got this whole mess for are unwatchable at different times. one channel will be scrambled as hell and the next is fine. So I just got the splitter i think that will solve some problems. also bought the terminator on amazon.

    thanks for all the help. I hope I can return the favor one day
