I emailed Wilt Hildenbrand the following:
and he promptly responded:
That's exactly what I planned to do and am
In the process of doing now. I just dreaded the thought of swapping 2 cablecards
I also have another issue that popped up where the unit freezes and doesn't respond to the remote. The only way I got it working was to pull the Cablecard and re-seat it. I won't be able to do that easily if I decide to use this solution because it will be mounted in a rack.
It needs two TAs with cablecards. It works great. Better than the ceton 6 tuner unit I tried a few months ago.
Giddyup! Thanks Adam. Fingers crossed and thanks for staying in touch with him!!
The comcast reps in the comcast (oops, I mean xfinity) forums are sounding more positive these days when they say the South Florida upgrade should be completed in October. I can almost believe we'll have it by Christmas .
I can't take the "channel not authorized" any longer. It never happened on My Series 3, and happened intermittently on my Premiere XL. But on the Roamio, it's literally every day!! I can't take it any more. Shows are interrupted (even while watching them), and recordings don't take place. This occurs on all tuners - not just 5 and 6.
I've had Cablevision out twice, and my entire setup has been re-wired, right from the pole through the entire house. I'm on my third cable card. They just can't get it fixed.
I'm really puzzled, though, about why it doesn't happen as much on the Premier, and never happened on the Series 3. Can this possibly be a TiVo problem? Why would that behavior occur?
In any event, I'm taking it back to Best Buy within my 45 day return window. I just want to watch TV - not be a guinea pig. I'll keep watching these boards, and if CV ever gets it right, I'll get another Roamio.
Did you ever drop your Roamio down to 4 or 5 tuners as the the instructions in this thread? Also you say it's all tuners, but did you check which tuner it is from the cablecard/diagnostic screens? If you are just going off of the order that shows in the info >> multi tuner tab, the positioning is not accurate to = the tuner #.
How much longer do you have on the return period? It does look the update is coming soon, which I will speka to in my next post.
I just got an email (not on the address I emailed Wilt H from) from a cablevision employee. He might have gotten my email address from the yahoo group post about this.
Anyway, it looks like the rollout is coming very soon, if not today for CV:
I have PKEY1.5.2_F.p.1401 on a PKM803, so I just emailed him back. Hopefully that doesn't hold me back somehow.
Adam, that is excellent news!!! Do you think you can message me his email? I have all the requirements for the upgrade Thanks!
I have the same problem on my Roamio and I am only using 4 tuners. My Premier started having issues months ago so I bought the Roamio and found out it is also having tuning issues. I feel your pain and with the new season starting people are going to start seeing more of this problem when trying to record all the new and returning shows.
Just got the same email. I do have 1.5.2_1601, though.
I'm looking for a couple of volunteers who have Cablevision and a Cisco CableCARD, to test a firmware update that should address these issues. Please email me if you are interested (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please use the subject: "Roamio Cablevision Cisco test" and include you TiVo Service Number and the home phone number associated with your Cablevision account. You do not need to join our Beta program to test this update.
any progress on the NDS card front?
I will volunteer. I'll send the info once I get home from work today
Heard back from Ed Hellyer... looks like I'll be getting the new firmware between 1am and 5am tonight!
I was told it would be version 188.8.131.521 which is the highest # I've seen, and I can't find any release notes for yet. So this must be the newest available.
So this will probably never propagate to Comcast, right? Even though we use the same cards?
......or Time Warner? I'm on 153 0601
Did you put the 1.5.3.0601 card in your Roamio? I know you talked about it being in your HD HomeRun and what you were going to try it. But I never saw an update on if it fixed anything?
Got Cisco/SA Powerkey 1.5.3 1101 from Cablevision on my Cablecards overnight. Reset my Roamio Pro back to 6 tuners. Simultaneously tuned 6 premium channels and it's looking good so far. Fingers crossed
Thanks to Wilt and Cablevision for getting this update tested and pushed quickly.
P.S. One of my Series 4 XLs didn't recognize the cablecard with the updated firmware at first, but a reboot took care of that.
