I am even able to detect channels. however WMC says no cablecard detected.

I have even ran hwclear script and reinstalled it. I still am able to do everything in web gui, but WMC still doesnt detect.
First lesson with drivers, if it ain't broke.... Only people that need to concern themselves with constantly tweaked drivers is gamers, since they are constantly benchmarking their hardware, any incremental improvement is celebrated like somebody had a baby.

Anyway, hell has froze over and after being with DirecTV since 1992, the parental units have decided enough was enough.

We have a TWC truck roll coming up on March 3rd. I don't have all the details but I believe we'll be getting all the same channels so if that's the case, I will be getting a standard HD cable box, yuck.

Can I just pull the card from the cable box and insert it into the DCR-2650? Or do I need a special M-card and do I need to let TWC CS about that?

The upside is all my local HD's will finally be available instead of the current mix of some HD (CBS, NBC, KTLA for those in LA) and SD (ABC, FOX and UPN/MyTV). The only thing I tend to record off the majors is NASCAR which is on Fox half the season.

Other than that, no major changes that I can tell.

Do trucks normally have the tuner adapters on-board or again is that an item I need to request?
