    I replaced a hard drive in Series 3 using MSF and all is working well but getting skipping and stuttering on all channels but the local broadcast channels on cable. Also missing premium channels. Playback of previously recorded content is good too. I assume this means I need to get cable co to re-do cards?

    I thought copying with MSF was supposed to maintain cablecard setup, not so?

    Thanks for advice.

    The settings do copy over.

    Has the Tivo updated to the latest software version?

    You might also try a restart. If the issues continue, your cable company might just need to send out a "rehit" to the cards.

    Not sure if it is the latest software or not. It was out of commission for only a couple of days. Will check.
