    Would anyone here tell me the difference between the SA PKM800 and the SA PKM802 cable card decoder. Is the 802 the newer model or does it use a different freq? Three of the newly added HD channels are not being received. They have swapped out the cable card, but it is the PKM800. I have seen the PKM802's on sale, and wonder if that might be the issue?

    Even though the Tivo tunes to 1GHZ, the three channels are below that freq. And two of the three split with another channel on the same freq. When authorized, they come right up. I've loaned them the box to take back to their bench so that they can investigate the issue.

    Any suggestins?

    I'm having some newly-found trouble w./ my setup (many channels not authorized) and, as I type this, the cableguy™ has just brought a PK802 card over to see if that is the problem.

    I'll keep you posted.
