    There is an issue with the validation and/or pairing of that particular card. That's the issue I had when I first got CableCards installed (though it was the one in Slot 1).

    It could also be a defective CableCard as well. If you're willing to risk not having any digital cable channels until a tech can come back out, swap them to see if the problem occurs on Slot 1. The risk you take is that if your cable provider pairs the cards to the TiVo, this may cause them to unpair and you will need a tech's assistance (whether real or telephonically) to reset it.
