    Thank you Time Warner for for the awesome tuning adapter that locked up on Friday night and stopped all recordings over the weekend while I was away. Good times...

    Welcome to the only downfall for Tivo.

    I blame Tivo more than the CableCo's for still not building hardware that supports 2-way for SDV and relying on the CableCo's to band aid it for them..

    That being said I have learned to reboot my Tivo's and Tuning adapters before I leave if I am going to be gone for any extended amount of time.

    Has eliminated this problem for me.

    I think the problem is that, instead of an industry standard, each cable co. does SDV with whatever hardware they choose, which means you need something that can talk to their headend or wherever the "add this channel to the mix" request is dealt with, and there's no way for TiVo to know that in advance.

    Put the tuning adapter on one of those lamp timers. 15 minutes or whatever the smallest increment is "off" at say 3:30 in the morning.

    Has anyone tried something like this? I'm worried it would create more problems than it would solve. Also F1 races usually air in the middle of the night so I have trouble finding a reliable dead time.

    I have TWC coming out for this specific reason, both MOTO tuning adapters went to blinking yellow lights, phone support can't do anything so hopefully their tech can. Since they didn't work Tivo didn't record Monaco.... BOOO!

    I was having this issue, sometimes I'd change channels and get message no signal found. Or the yellow light would flash and none of the switched channels worked. It's taken three truck rolls over 5 mos to figure out there was a problem between the box outside on the ground and my wall.. They pulled a new wire and it's stable now.

    Of course I had to threaten I'm canceling if this isn't fixed this time.
