I have been using a cable card tuner with Cox for years with no problems. I started with a Ceton and now am using a Homerun.
I started with the Homerun, I've heard nothing but good about these, and it was well worth the wait to get one, I love this thing. And I had problems receiving certain channels in my area at all, namely all HBOs in the 200s aside from 200 & 201, the rest just did not show, and same with Starz, I only got 260, nothing else. In the high end, I was missing 1261 as well, and a number of other HD versions of channels. After adding in the TA, I went from scanning ~270 programs, to ~380 programs, there was a TON I was missing and didn't realize it. I didn't get the TA in the first place because I ordered my CC over the phone, and just the CC, it was all self install (which wasn't all that smooth, but persistence paid off). Had a tech come out and drop a TA on me, it's an extra equipment fee, but it's $4.50 total, compared to the $12 for the stupid DVR in the other room, and I have 20tb of DVR capable storage in here.

After tearing it down and redoing all the wiring to kind of spread my entertainment setup out (it ended up becoming a giant jumble of wires and equipment in one small cubby, bad bad bad) I repaired the TA to the CC and now all is well. Windows Media Center doesn't like the slightest hiccup in the data stream else it throws a fit on me, but I feel like that's to be expected with Microsoft.
