Just follow the Cisco instructions.
I did, very simple. I don't think that TW has me configured correctly. The light on the front of the Cisco box just blinks and the Tivo diagnostics indicate "No channels available".
Need to call TW....
Do you know if the person at the counter was able to get you in the system correctly? They couldn't get the codes to "take" on my account, which initially caused some issues.
mine does not appear to work either. I got no instructions, just a letter saying that the tuning adapters are no longer free after 2008.
Do you have to wait for it to pick up the channel list?
Mine too. Were you the guy next to me in the RR location?
Anyway, she just called me back and said that my box was now correctly 'registered'. But the box is still blinking....
No, I picked mine up from the Duval location a couple hours ago. They said I was the first (YEAH!!! IN YO FACE!!! WHOOO!!!!! Just kidding.). Anyway, they had an instruction sheet that had some codes that apparently don't work. And if they don't work, the TA won't work.
8 blinks means you need an authorization hit.
I jut hit your ta, check for a solid light now.
yep, 8 blinks for me.
That was me, but I haven't hooked it up yet. Gotta finish work.
I got a call that it was now registered, did you get it working?
The guy at the counter said that the code they need to authorize the TA from the pick-up area was deleted from the system earlier today..and that it was just restored around 3pm or so. That's probably the issue behind the TA's getting home and not working. Haven't tried mine yet...had to go back to work. Guess I'll see if mine actually works later tonight.
TW hit the Ta with an authorization and after a power cycle and 5 more minutes it works!!
While I have had many frustrations with TW, I was impressed with TW with the TA. I had a TW employee call me up to inform me that the TA was available for pick up. The guy I talked to on the phone was very candid saying that this was a new box and he would have to do some research, but he didn't feed me a line of BS, he just fixed my problem.
I get the same - it sat quiet for a few minutes, now I'm getting 8 blinks, pause, and then the cycle repeats.
Is there anything else I need to do?
mine works now too (thanks cableguy763)! It's smaller than I was expecting, like a large modem or a small stb.
FYI, another vaporware showed up today if you have a ps3. Must be Vapor Friday.
Anyone out there know what to do?
Add me to the list of non working TA. Just get 8 blinks of the green light. The TIVO recognized the unit with a problem.
It takes a while, maybe 5-10 minutes, before it goes solid. But they have to "hit" it first which some people know how to do and others do not, it would seem. It's not the same as resetting it from the phone menu.
On the third(?) TA diag screen, if the powerkey says waiting EMM then you need a hit, I think.
So do I need to call TWC and have them do anything? The box I received did not have any instructions - not like I need any. :> Although, it was not apparent from the documentation if I needed to do anything besides plug it in and wait.
This was like my initial cablecard setup; not possible without the help of cableguy. No idea what I would do without him.
On the phone with twc austin. The guys is trying, but can't figure it out.
