Advertisements You're experiencing worse-than-usual SDV tuning problems. Typically they also cause missed recordings. Some of us have been yelling for TiVo to program in tuning retries to combat this for years now but nothing every happens. I suppose their position may be the problem is on the Tuning Adapter side. I've noticed these problems tend to be worse on just some specific channels, which does suggest it may not be TiVo's problem. But they could (easily ??) fix it with tuning retries. What are your OOB signal levels --- in tuning adapter diagnostics, the FDC and RDC dbmv values? These are the signals used to communicate SDV tuning messages to/from the cable plant and they could be a problem if out of spec.
