Me too although I think your hate is even greater than mine! Even with the latest TA and CableCARD software updates, and all signal levels good (FDC, RDC, etc.) , I continue to have to reboot the TA (and restart the TiVo) when some or all SDV channels go missing, and still have occasional tuning failures, on TWC Southwest Ohio. TA problems are the only significant issues with my TiVo.
If you've seen the movie "Office Space", the scene where they destroy a malicious printer, I fantasize a similar scene where I brutally destroy a TA someday when it's no longer needed.
