    During the last 10 minutes of the Superbowl all of a sudden my Premiere Tivo displayed that it had lost the signal. I was in a panic and checked everything, then noticed I lost all my TV channels and Internet. So I got on phone with Charter Cable and they informed of a huge outage in my area. WTF! They must have had a ton of pissed off customers that had Superbowl parties, because they gave me a $20 credit without any fuss. So I never was able to see the end of the game and had to get the final score from the Charter rep. Had I been in a normal state of mind at the time I would have switched to over the air and been able to finish watching the game. Fortunately my channels came back online shortly after hanging up with Charter, but not soon enough as to see the end of the game.

    Rant off!

    You were supposed to be recording the cable feed of it on one tuner and the broadcast feed on the other.:D

    So, really not Tivo related at all. If the Tivo lost signal, but your TV was able to tune (QAM) to it, then you might have a valid rant..

    Agree Tivo didn't lose the signal, there was no signal. You can't lose something if it doesn't exist. Misleading thread title.
