    I have 2 Tivo premier boxes with tuning adapter supplied by my cable company. Intermittently I get a Tivo pop-up screen saying "A tuning adapter has been connected" even though one has been continually connected and working fine. When i click continue Tivo goes back to Tivo Central and I can resume what I was watching either a live broadcast or a recording. Tivo and my cable company are pointing fingers at each other. Anyone have this problem?

    Do you have the Premieres on UPS's but not the tuning adapters? Could be you lose power for a quick second (Happens here sometimes) and the Tivos are staying on, but the Tuning adapters aren't, so when they come back on, it freaks Tivo out.

    I'd try replacing the USB cable and/or make sure it's seated properly.

    I've replaced USB cables and checked connection to no avail.

    Since this is happening on two TiVos and two separate tuning adapters, you might be in trouble. It makes me thinks its some software in the TiVo or on the tuning adapter. If you were having the problem with just one TiVo or just one tuning adapter, it'd be easier to point fingers. Only thing I can suggest is starting the TiVo over from scratch and then see if the problem remains.

    Do both units do it at the same time? if so it is likely the CableCo sending some update or reboot command.
