    OK, people, I'm setting up my Premiere today, and hoping and praying that the CableCARD install happens without problems (I've got the card itself already). For now, I'm downloading some big-a** "service update" from TiVo that's taking it's sweet time (how long should it take on a 3 Mbps connection, BTW?--update, now I'm at the "loading info" part).

    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (aka WTF)!? After a bazillion years downloading and "organizing" the download, now it's "Preparing the service update" and telling me it may take an hour or possibly longer?? Methinks that they need to activate that second core of the dual processor.

    A second core isn't going to help what could be a single-threaded process.

    Give it time, it's worth it...

    FWIW, prior to installing the cable card, I had some spontaneous reboots when changing to certain channels. Once the CC was installed, no more reboots.
