Yesterday I had a Verizon cablecard fall asleep or die again, the 2nd since 11/06. Normally I say "Agent" when the automated self test prompt begins but let it run this time. Despite the chatter about "your STBs", it woke up the card and all channels returned in a minute. A power cycle of Toshiba TV might have served the same purpose but I didn't think of it. First card actually was dead. Also after use in the Toshiba. - A cablecard killer? 5 cards in 4 CC devices. Random chance of only 2 failures in same single CC device is 4 percent. Prior to call, just the local HDs and analogs were being tuned. Analogs still around one + week after "shutoff" with periodic red warning screens, mostly in prime time. Good PR?
