wait.. I did what?
Verizon uses CableCARDs, but they do not use tuning adapters.Exactly! How would you see any message if your screen is frozen?! And yes, it was considerate of the Cox repair guy to text me. My TiVo Bolt is still working OK now, knock on wood. A tech-savvy friend of mine who has TiVo with Verizon said something to the effect of this: Because Verizon doesn't use a separate cable card or tuning adaptor, it's less prone to problems. Apparently with Verizon, it's built in. I'm not sure if I'm recalling his words exactly. Perhaps someone with knowledge of Verizon could shed some light on this subject? I've been a faithful Cox customer for 23 years, but this latest episode has me wondering if I'd be better off switching to Verizon.
