Hello all, I have been a longtime Tivo fan and reader of these forums, so I turn to you all now to help me out in my plight! Last night, one of my Cablecards (slot 2) stopped showing any premium HD channels (besides ABC, NBC, Fox, and CBS). So no HBO HD or Showtime HD or Discovery Channel HD. Just a big gray screen on those channels. From reading the Tivo support articles, I established that it was only the 2nd cablecard slot, not the first (the first shows all channels just fine when I select the Test Channels option). I was on the phone with TWC Southern Manhattan trying to get them to send hits to the cards as per the Tivo suggestions -- they first said they couldn't do that, then I got another tech guy, who sent the hit and nothing happened.... Long story short, after talking to 5 different phone support personnel, I ended up with 3 hits to each card, and nothing happening -- still missing the channels on slot 2. They wanted me to set up a time for a tech guy to come over, but they don't have a free spot until Friday -- and I'm going on vacation Thursday until August 20. Plus, they cannot or will not set up an appointment for a tech visit on, say, the 21st -- they say it is too far into the future to do such a thing. My question is: Since the first cablecard is still working, is there any way I can get my Tivo Series 3 to force recording only by use of that card? I would have thought that just recording one show at a time (thereby not using the dual tuners) would work fine, but I tried that last night and it seems the cablecard in slot 2 just makes my Tivo record a blank gray screen. Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I cannot believe Tivo owners have not managed a class-action lawsuit against TWC, given that we seem to all have experienced bad/rude/ignorant service or misinformation. I myself wish I had an alternative to the TWC conglomerate... But I seem to be stuck with it, at least for now. Thanks in advance!
