Advertisements You are in good hands then. The engineer is old school and extremely thorough. I was the first to use cablecards with Service Electric. That was in 2004. It took your engineer about two hours or so to get it working. But after that that card worked non stop up until my new division took it out of service two years ago for a mistake they kept making with their cablecard lineup. SECV ended up giving me two cards for free and they have been working non stop since then.
