Over the last 6 to 9 months I've seen the V58 channel not authorized error twice. First time it affected only one of our two Roamio's, second time it affected both devices. Each time I called Comcast and heard the "there's an outage in your area" message followed by an estimate of time for the fix.
I found I had about two dozen of the lower numbered channels. After an hour or two the channels slowly start coming back. Over the next 30 minutes or so I had all the channels back.
All in all I'd say each outage lasted two to three hours from beginning to end.
