Sorry for the delay in getting back with you. The computer doing all the WMC duties will be the one in the mancave. The 'main pc in the office' is a 3ish year old "gaming rig" that really just gets used for facebook and checking sports scores now, haha.
So I called Comcast again last night. Gave them the same host ID and cable card ID as I had before. What's interesting is that the lady on the line gave me the "card serial number" I believe, which was all letters, and read it off to me. I found this interesting because I know I never told that code to anyone at Comcast, so there obviously is some "link" going on between the tuner/card and Comcast. I still don't get anything other than the clear QAM channels, though.
I also noticed that when using the 3 way coax splitter in the office (TV, prime, and cable modem) the "OOB lock" on the prime's website would say "weak". If I swapped out the splitter for a 2 way (leaving the TV out), it would say "locked". So I think I either need to leave that as a 2 way splitter, or relocate the prime to the mancave - which would take the powerline adapters out of the link between the prime and the HTPC, which I'd guess is what you were getting at with the above question.
In the end, with Comcast, they are sending out a tech this Saturday to hopefully rectify the issue of only getting my "local" channels on the prime. Any idea of anything I can do to fix the issue on my end, or do you think any issue would be on Comcast's end? I mean, I know there is some link going on between the two, maybe there is some option I didn't check on my end.....
Thanks again for all of your help! It's very much appreciated.
