That's the STB doing that. You should get the sound but no pic (I've done it accidentally and though my TV was busted!
I just had my second pair of CC's installed on Tuesday. Once again, the install worked like a charm. The installer even called me before the appointment to confirm that 1) the CC's were for a TiVo and that 2) I knew that the TiVo required two and that I couldn't use (2) TiVo's with one each.
One thing to remember if you decide to place an order for CC's. Do not let the rep tell you they can ship the CC's to you. They cannot. CC install requires a truck roll and the installation fee. I've seen this story repeated here several times and experienced it first hand on Monday. The rep placed the order and told me to expect the cards in the mail. When I questioned why my first install in October needed a truck roll, she checked and came back and said, sorry, you are right, we need an install appointment.
