It took just over 7 months to get my first one working / stable, TA replaced twice, new run from their box on the ground. The second one I added 2 months later the TA in the self install kit was DOA, the TA on the tech's truck that came to service the DOA TA was also DOA. They brought out two more that day or they were getting cut I was dropping everything. Another was DOA the last one worked.
Motorola TA's have a high failure oft DOA rate. I oft contemplated going OTA only. I've now had about 8 months of relatively stable cable service. Getting here has been infuriating at times. I held out adding internet via cable using alternative and let them know this needed to work before I'd switch that over.
I'm now beginning my second month with internet service with TWC bought my own modem also! So far only a bump in getting it activated because the first person I talked to made a mistake authorizing my modem. I credit the smooth operation because I took the time and made them make it right.
When threatening to cut the cord I always refereed to the Discount Tire commercial, lol. It got their attention!
