    Did you have to specifically request it?

    You can’t request a specific one, it depends on the local system. Motorola gets you a Moto/Arris TA, Cisco/SA gets you a Cisco TA.

    Motos seem to be a bit more reliable without rebooting them, but their passthru absorbs quite a bit of power from the signal - it’s like they’re packed with sawdust. Ciscos are more temperamental but their passthrus seem to be better performing.

    I've got two TiVo units, one Edge and one XL4, both on Spectrum with a tuning adapter. It took me four calls and two truck rolls to get my cable card paired with my Edge (only succeeding when I called TiVo tech support, so they could initiate a 3-way call with a senior tech at Spectrum), but I have had very little problems with my tuning adapters. The system here went through a digital conversion a couple of years ago, where channel numbers and frequencies got reassigned. I had to unplug, then reboot my TAs several times to force a download of updated channel mapping. Until then, I was getting random "channel not authorized" messages on good channels. I also had a problem a few years ago when, if you can believe it, the power adapter on one of my tuning adapters went bad. I needed a truck roll for that one too, but they replaced it, which solved the problem.

    Using the splitter is the way to go, as noted previously.

    can one get a tuning adapter ? Optimum Long Island doesn't provide them anymore, but you need one to get most of their channels you pay for ...
