    I just got off the phone with a TiVo support agent, who advised me that the 14.8 patch would specifically resolve "Tuning Related" issues (among other things). She understood that to mean that the patch should/could/may resolve my Tuning Adapter issue (stuck at acquiring channels screen).

    Unfortunately, she did not appear particularly confident, but I'm willing to wait until 14.8 hits my box to know for sure.

    Has anyone else heard anything like this, or (even better) experienced 14.8 resolving a TA problem?

    At least yours works. Mine just tries to hypnotize me with the yin-yang sign.

    I was told the same thing today when I called (because Cox changed all their channels and TiVo did NOT) and also asked about the "stops acting/responding to remote" bug. She said 14.8 was supposed to address tuning, lockup, and other such issues.

    But I have heard stuff like that before... so I guess we wait and see

    I hope so! I've given up on SDVs and use a TWC box when necessary.

    I see you're in the Orlando area... Are you not with BrightHouse then? I ask because I have a TiVo PremiereXL with BrightHouse and cable card and TA and I have almost zero problems. Got the TiVo PremiereXL when it first came out.

    On the other hand, the TivoHD/cable card/TA combo I have seems to be much more problematic.

    But maybe I'm just incredibly fortunate. I love my PremiereXL and don't seem to have as many issues as most are reporting. Occasional glitches, but nothing like what seems generally reported on this forum.
