Advertisements Darthsnipe, Have there been any developments for you? I'm having a similar experience w/ Tivo Premiere. Just had a Cablevision install this afternoon. Everything seemed to go smoothly until plugging in the USB cable, where it just hangs on the acquiring channel information (which ultimately and repeatedly fails). Tech just said that everything on Cablevision's end was set up properly, told me to call Tivo and went on his merry way. Cablecard is working and tuning adapter is giving me solid light. When the USB is unplugged, I get most channels; however, without a successful channel mapping via usb, certain channels just will not function. Have you talked to Tivo CS during this whole thing?
