I decided to buy a Roamio last night (first TiVo box!). We got the basic model as we were wavering back and forth on whether or not the features coming with the doubled price were anything we were ever likely to need or use more than once in a blue moon. When we got to Best Buy only the basics were in stock. Decision made!
I thought it would be a headache to get this going with Time Warner (its a headache to get them to take care of their own stuff, let alone a third party issue!), but I built up an expectation of such a negative experience that the bad experience I did get seemed fine. I spent an hour and a half dealing with busy signals, ringing forever, and getting dropped from TWC's menu system before I finally got through to a person. All that to be told to go down to the local office. So I did that and met a very visibly annoyed woman (lots of big sighs and eye rolling) and admitted she had never done this before. After slowly going through her computer for a half hour and making two poor souls trying to pay a bill wait, she finally produced a card and a cisco tuning adapter.
I got it all hooked up and I love what is working, but I am missing some channels and when I try to test the tuning adapter channels (as opposed to the option to test the cable card channels in the settings) I come up blank. I tried unplugging the adapter and plugging it back in, but no dice. Any suggestions?
