Advertisements I just got a 2nd Tivo HD (to go with the new LCD that the Mrs bought for the Man Cave as an Xmas gift) and just got through getting RCN cable to install a cable card. It was about as painless as it could be. I called the customer service line and talked to someone who didn't really know the ins and outs of what she was doing, but I think that she was able to follow a script (or talk to a co-worker -- she put me on hold a couple of times) and managed to get the order done. I made an appointment for the installer (yeah I know I could have done it myself, but at least they didn't charge me for it), when he arrived he scanned the bar code on card with the PDA device he had, put the card in the correct slot, punched in some more numbers (presumably my account number or some such), told me "It may take about 20 minutes to get all the HD channels and you will have to let the tivo reboot" and then left. Total time in my house maybe 10 minutes. I rebooted the tivo, ran through guided setup, said "no" to the "Is channel NN station XX" until I was presented with the "Is your lineup Regular basic, Regular Basic extended, Digital Basic or Digital Basic Extended" and chose the latter. After a wait to get the guide data, everything ran just fine. I figured I'd post this to give some props to RCN and express hope that CableCo installers are maybe getting wise to Tivos.
