    No problems here so far - I'm with Comcast. No idea what CC I have. I put it in, called the hotline and it worked.

    Started the day with 6 tuners. One tuner was not tuning in all stations. I did the 88634 command to set the Roamio to 4 tuners. Once I was finished, the tuner not working was removed as part of the 2 tuners. I am not saying this means anything, I'm just trying to document. Originally when I first set up my Roamio I had tuning issues so I set the Roamio to 4 tuners. I still had tuning issues with only 4 tuners (just like my Premier does). Since 4 tuners was having an issue I figured having 6 tuners was not the problem and set the Roamio back to 6.

    If your having issues, can we get post indicating if tuning adapter is present?

    I did at first, but I rearranged a few splitters to boost my signal and now it works fine.

    Charter cable, with Motorola CC and TA.

    Looks like Motorola CC are working fine. Does anyone know if the majority of cable providers use Cisco CC? Although the poll says no Motorola CC are having issues, this could be because Motorola is not widely use.

    My Roamio Pro has no issues at all when watching TV on it. It's the Minis that have a problem. When you first turn one onto live TV, it gives a black screen. Have to hit the TiVo button then live TV button again. I'm sure it's just a software bug that will be addressed soon (I hope).

    I've had mine give a black screen but after a few seconds live TV pops up. I thought maybe it was buffering the video or something?

    Received my Roamio Pro 5 days ago. So far all 6 tuners are working fine. I haven't hooked up the Tuning Adapter yet (only have a few SDV channels that I don't watch anyway) and might not (it's working now and don't want to screw it up).

    My cable card is a Cisco Model 0800 Ver 0012
    Firmware is PKey1.5.2_F.p2801
    Cable Company is Blue Ridge Cable.

    Interesting. I am on BRCTV as well and my local office said I had to have a TA installed with my Roamio Basic. Everything is working fine.

    Motorola system here.

    I've only noticed one tuning-related issue. On three occasions, I've seen multiple tuners tuned to the same channel, and Tivo is recording on one of them. The tuner being recorded has no audio or video, while the duplicate non-recorded tuners have working audio and video.

    The end result is a failed recording when a working channel was available at the same time on another tuner.
