    One of my cable cards was bad so I swapped them out and was told all I have to do is pop them and I should be good to go, but for some reason Tivo made me repeat guided setup. It froze while doing it yesterday so I had to pull the plug and start over, and it worked except now I got to the "Getting Program Info" stage and it's just stuck on "Preparing..." (the FIRST step).

    ?????? I need my TV damn it.

    This may be a different issue but, unless you are on Verizon FIOS, you need to have CableCARDs re-paired if you change them.
