At least once a week (sometimes much more often) I come home and turn on the TV, there is a "V53" error on whatever was being tuned "live". Sometimes I can press up chan then down chan and it will fix it. Other times I have to power cycle the stupid tuning adapter- which I CAN NOT DO if something is actually recording, because I will lose all recordings in progress.
Are other people still having these nightmares? Is there some kind of definitive guide to dealing with this? Today, I can't tune EpixHD at all, although I can tune most other channels, including SDV ones. I finally gave up and power cycled the tuning adapter and now I can tune EpixHD again. I am almost tempted to put some type of timer on the adapter's plug to power cycle it every night.

I set my Tivo Roamio Pro up for 5 tuners to correct the V58 errors about a month ago and have had zero tuning problems since that change.
It would be nice if Charter would come into the current decade and upgrade the firmware to the current release (1.5.3-Fp.1101??? ) and eliminate the TA altogether, as far as I know Charter is all digital now so I don't think there is a real need for the TA anymore.
I am adding a total of 4 Tivo Mini's to my system, but I have stopped at 2 right now. I will add the 3rd and 4th Mini when I am able to use all 6 tuners on the Roamio.
I am still very pleased with the Roamio Pro, it is a HUGE improvement over the Cisco DVR's that Charter offers even with only 5 usable tuners.
From another Post to change the number of active tuners on your Roamio:
Go to Settings > Channels > Channel List
and enter one of the following number sequences using the number buttons on the remote. This will tell Roamio the how many tuners it can use.
- 88633 = use 3 tuners
- 88634 = use 4 tuners
- 88635 = use 5 tuners
- 88636 = use 6 tuners
Then force a reboot of the tivo:
tivo >> settings >> help >> restart
The issue you are having has been resolved for many months now.
Check your Firmware release on your CableCard and make sure it is at 153.1101, I am assuming you have a Cisco or SA CableCard.
If the firmware is older than this you will need to follow the instructions above to reduce your Tivo to 4 or 5 tuners until your Cable Company can upgrade or replace the Cable Card to the required firmware release level.
