    Yes, I had a reboot too. My total sequence was this.

    * Guided Setup #1, found analog channels, prompted for 101...said I did not receive. Guided setup ran for a while and rebooted
    * Guided Setup #2, found analog channels, prompted for 101...said I did not receive, prompted for 105, said I received, ran a while
    * Did not have SDV channels, but did have HD channels
    * Recyncing TA a few times did not help despite "Acquiring channels..."
    * Rebooted Tivo, a very long "Acquiring channels..." ... all tuned as expected.

    Remaining issues:
    * ESPN is labeled wrong
    * Todos did not switch from 250, 255, etc.

    The todo's took a few hours for me. I'm guessing it's a background process that goes and re-figures them. But the did move to the 1xx version of the OTA channels and not he 11xx version so I had to fix those.

    OK, glad to hear my experience wasn't entirely unexpected. I was surprised that after the reboot, the second "loading data" phase was much quicker.

    I was paranoid about repeating the same process, so when it asked me about channel 101, I told it to ask about a different channel. It asked about 105 (WRAL), I said yes, and then it proceeded with the rest of the process. It's now loading program-guide data. Keeping my fingers crossed. I haven't disconnected the TA but will try that if I have more problems.

    We're about to go on vacation for a week, and I'll be quite unhappy if my TiVo isn't able to record the return of "Futurama" while we're gone...

    Sorry I don't watch TV very often my wife does. When is this supposed to happen?

    If you're talking about them being 'TWRESPN', 'TWRESP2', etc - this seems unrelated to the channel renumbering. I saw this before the renumbering, and even see it on my S2.

    Truck Roll scheduled between 0900 and 1100 today. Supposedly getting an M Card here in Raleigh, NC. I will report back as the install takes place.

    Finally got this update to work, thanks to everyone's suggestions. This is for Time Warner/ Tivo in NC, in case anyone is in the same area.

    At first nearly all channels had gone gray. To solve - I rebooted the tivo, power cycled the TA (waiting for solid green light), and repeated guided setup. The tivo service update and program info update steps took forever. I was sitting at the preparing... step for hours. But, eventually it went through, and now the channels are all in place (most HD channels are now in the 1000's). The only thing left to do was verify that Season Passes were updated - most of them with upcoming shows updated automatically. Some I reset as new HD channels were now available.

    For those that missed out on some great World Cup action (or anything else) - you can tell TW you missed days and they should issue you a credit.

    What I think happened here is that (for whatever reason) the 1xx and the 11xx versions of the broadcast channels now have the same name (WRALDT, for example.) So, when the Tivo moved season passes that were on the HD WRALDT channel before, it just picked the first channel that showed up as WRALDT.

    Yes, agreed. I think SCSIRAID hypothesized the same in this thread. It's just annoying that they screwed up the naming and caused that. Though I wonder if you just temporarily or permanently removed those from the Channels I Receive list as soon as guided setup is done if the SPs would convert properly.

    • Installer arrived @ 12:15.
    • I installed the M Card myself. (Installer did not have TAs. Was told they would be mailed.)
    • My Tivo found it and I ran through the GS.
    • Upon GS completion it did not have the new channel line up.
    • Went to rerun GS, but Tivo is doing some sort of service update.

    That's it for now, more on this as I work through it.

    My setup was rock solid. I unplugged the TiVo today by accident. D'oh! It was during 2 recordings too! As it rebooted, the TA blinked green. Once TiVo rebooted it went solid green almost immediately.

    I pressed "channel guide" and got the "Acquiring Channels" screen for about 2-3 minutes.

    After that, TiVo picked up both recordings. I cancelled them manually to get them another day and tested both CableCARD tunings. Worked fine.

    Fwew! I was afraid that reboot would mess everything up!

    I think the 1xx channels are mis-named.
    In the guide information, it lists the 1xx channel as HD, but it is not.
    I've manually re-done all of my season passes.
    I'm hoping the mis-naming is fixed at some point, and/or at least doesn't cause issues going forward.

    TWC installed my TA on Monday morning. Ran through Guided Setup again. After a restart my Guide has all the channels above 1000 that are supposed to be there however it will not tune many of them.

    For some reason I can tune to 1301 (TNT), 1500 (ESPN), and 1501 (ESPN 2) the others not so much.

    The TA is solid green.

    TWC truck rolling back tomorrow afternoon to bring a new TA and CC to try again.

    Try removing the USB cord from the back of the TA. If this is not a premiere you should get a message saying Tuning adapter disconnected or powered down... If you get that plug it back in & it should change to connected. If it does then got to TA menu then TA diagnostics, There scroll down to "Network & tuning status" highlight & hit select. When you go in there you should see the "Tuning mode: QUAM 256" If not then the TA needs a hit from the DNCS. IF it does say then hit "Clear" button on the bottom left of your remote, then hit "Live TV" button on the top right hand side of remote. This should take you to the Acquiring channel info screen for a few & then go to live TV. Check the channels after that.

    Thanks for the info!

    Upon unplugging the TA I received no message from the Tivo. Upon going into the TA diagnostics under the TA Menu the Tivo shows no diag information. I am thinking my TA is hosed. TWC is already on schedule to roll back with a fresh TA and CC tomorrow evening. I am sure it's just a matter of getting decent hardware and proper syncing.

    Want to make sure the FCC knows the TA troubles you're having, and refute TWC's rosy representations? See **this**.

    Done deal... Truck Roll brought out a new TA this afternoon, the first one was bad.

    After a Tivo restart and a handful of Cable Card hits I am up and running with all the appropriate content.

    :D

    For the past two nights the last channel I watched before going to bed was a SDV channel. The following morning I woke up with a message saying that channel could not be tuned and to press Select to try again.

    One time, Select worked. Another time, I had to Ch Up and Ch Down again.

    Both times the green light was solid.

    Weird.
