Bedroom tivo getting channels, living room "searching for signal"

2 tivo premiere's - one in bedroom, one in living room. both on separate outlets from wall. Living in big apartment building.

My tivo in the living room is searching for signal on certain channels while my bedroom tivo gets them just fine.

It's not the outlet - i've taken the outlet from living room and ran the cable to the bedroom and the channels come in fine. I have also taken the cable from the bedroom and ran it to the living room and the channels do not come in.

I have tuning adapters hooked up to both tivo's. My service is Time Warner out of Buffalo, NY.

I'm lost - I'm assuming it's something to do with the living room tivo's cable card or tuning adapter. I hope it's not my actual tivo in the living room, that's the one with lifetime attached to it

Has anyone ever ran into this? I'd appreciate some help!

In 20 months of service with two tibia tivo's (one less than a year) I had six Motorola tuning adapters fail.

Yeah tried everything.

Called up Time Warner and had them refresh the signal. All seems okay now. We'll see how long it lasts.

The second there is another option other than Time Warner / traditional cable I'm ditching this sh*t. And I'm not talking hulu/netflix,etc.
