I will get my Roamio on Tuesday, but the cable guy is not coming until Thursday.
Cable guy from Blue Ridge Cable TV arrived, installed the Cisco Tuning Adapter, inserted the CableCARD into my Roamio Basic, powered everything up, called his office and everything was working fine (no premium channels) in 15 minutes. Total time on site = 30 minutes.
I followed the advice here and at TiVo about getting all the updates and the channel guide beforehand. The cable guy was amazed when his office said everything looked fine from their end and we saw channels immediately.
He said he was used to having to wait at least 30 minutes for all that to happen since they do not leave until they've verified the customer is getting all the channels they've subscribed to.
Roamio Basic (2 TB upgrade) working great in living room, Mini working great in den, two BRCTV DVRs returned and a bonus...the DVRs did not support 1080p, the Roamio does.
