    Anyone else on Spectrum in the Dayton/Cincy area have an update to their CableCARD software this AM at 1:49 am (5:49am GMT)? If you weren't watching TV at that time you would not have noticed the message. However if you go to Settings & Messages .... Settings .... Remote, CableCARD, & Devices ... CableCARD Decoder ... CableCARD options (for installers) ... CableCARD Menu .. Cisco CableCARD Diag Screen and check Boot Time, you can see if it rebooted recently. Also in that menu is the OS Ver., which is now PKEY2.0.1_F.p.0901 in my case, and the Build Time, which is Apr 30 2015, 07:48:15 in my case. I'm pretty sure that is a newer build than I had before, although my record keeping on that is a little sloppy.

    And of course I have no idea what changes were implemented in the "new" version.

    Yes mine did the same this AM. THAT'S why when I turned on the TV this morning I received the (I believe) V58 error. I had to channel up/down a few times to get stations to tune. All seems to OK now. Who knows what changes were made!

    I spent about 15 (or more) minutes googling this am to find any info on this OS version number. Found nothing.

    Oh joy, the V58 error is showing up on random stations. I had the Reds game recording, nothing, v58 error, yet all stations around that one (1309) ARE FINE:mad:

    Are you folks all on Cisco devices? Any on Motorola equipment?

    AFAIK, all Spectrum systems in SW Ohio use Cisco.

    I have two Cisco/SciAtl cards (in Tampa/St. Pete), a PKM800 and PKM802 that still have PKEY2.0.1_F.p.0801 from March 2015). For some strange reason my PKM803 still has PKEY_1.5.3_F.p.0601 from June 2012.

    I'm surprised Spectrum is actually updating CC's. Here in NY (Hudson Valley - formerly TW Cable), a PKM803 in my Roamio Pro was updated to the p.0901 build (I missed exactly when that happened), but a PKM802 CC in an old HD is still p.0801 (build Mar 31, 2014 15:12:04).
