Feel like a broken record posting again, but I'm having the same problem as folks in other regions. Here's my setup, for what it's worth: Cable co: Time Warner San Diego TiVo: Series 3 connected via HDMI to TV and via Ethernet to wireless router Western Digital Expansion Drive (500 GB) Tuning Adapter: Cisco STA1520 The TA is not tuning certain specific channels, and it's giving me the 8 blink/pause pattern. Restarting it doesn't help. Restarting the TiVo doesn't help. Calling Time Warner certainly doesn't seem to help. They sent a tech out about a month ago, and he replaced a bunch of the coax cables just for the heck of it. It seemed to help... but of course that wasn't really the problem. The most frustrating part of it is that there are some really helpful CSRs that you can get to, but most of them don't know any more about the TA than I do. So you have to do the same song and dance, reboot the TiVo (gee, why didn't I think of that????), etc., all to have them say they have to send a tech out. And I know how that dance ends, too. My question is: is there anybody out there with a cable card-using TiVo who *isn't* having problems?
