    I am having a problem with my Premiere and SDV. Here is my info:

    -Current TiVo HD w/ Cable Card and TA working fine.
    -Recently purchased TiVo Premiere
    -Took me 8 calls to Time Warner to get the Cable Card paired.
    -I can now watch/record any station that is NOT SDV.
    -When I attempt to tune/watch a SDV channel it shows up for appx 3 seconds and then gives an error
    -Tuning adapter is not flashing

    Can anyone give advice on where to start? I have taken following steps to troubleshoot:

    -Rebooted all equipment several times
    -Moved to a different cable outlet in the house.

    Anything under Messages & Settings > Account & System Information > Tuning Adapter? Also, I found this on TiVo's support site (not sure if it's still a current problem but it mentions moving the TA to a new or replacement box):

    The TA was brand new when I got it, so I dont think it has the wrong channel map. It may have a bad channel map. I'll give TiVo a call.

    Are you sure your cablecard is really paired or just initialized?

    You need to have your TA authorized as well. Have them re-hit both the TA and the cablecard
