A bad slot doesn't make since to me. Why would all the other channels work but not those on a bad slot?
I have not had to exchange in the past. I am in the process of transferring my recordings to my computer right now. My appointment is next Saturday. I will try to exchange my box at Best Buy that morning (or should I do it earlier?). I hope my cablecard install goes better this time than when I first got my S3.
I am worried about the install since they will be installing my old cards and not "fresh" ones. TiVo said it shouldn't be an issue. I hope not.
FYI - I do appreciate the help.
