I hate the SDV implementation. The first week I had the box, it was flawless. Someone said TWC did a firmware upgrade on the SDV adapters about 10 days ago and Ive had nothing but headaches since. It seems to lose my SDV channels constantly and the only way to get them back is to cold boot the Moxi and the SDV adapter.

SDV is nothing but a problem reduced to three letters. It's a quick and lazy band-aid for poor cableco planning and investment.
I just want to reiterate that these issues are not Moxi specific. The Moxi, TivoHD, and ATI CableCard PC tuners all exhibit similar problems with SDV in certain markets. In these service areas, the TAs periodically reset, and when that happens, you temporarily lose all channels. In other areas, users do not see these problems, so it is possible for SDV support to work reliably with the right TA firmware and head-end configuration.
Based on early reports, the Motorola SDV TAs (for Motorola head-ends) are much more stable/reliable.
