So i went through guided setup again and following that most of my channels are incorrect or missing. Channel 800 ESPN HD is showing CNBC in SD. 801 ESPN2 HD is showing Discovery SD and so on. The weird thing is, when i unplug my tuning adapter, all of the channels are back to normal, but then I am obviously missing the channels that require a tuning adapter. After a tech came out and replaced the tuning adapter, and a splitter, the problem remained. Then the tech told me that my problem was with my Tivo and there's nothing he can do and promptly left.
Any ideas what I can do? I am in the Duluth, MN 55811 area.
The problem I have is similar. Charter in my neighborhood has NEVER had a proper acceptable signal strength. It always seems to border on poor, to very poor, to unusable. Now since I have TiVo's with tuning adapters, I find that often (often, as in most of the time) I cannot receive some of the SDV'd channels that the tuning adapter is supposed to allow me to tune. Worse, I cannot receive channels that are not
SDV'd, simply because there is not enough signal strength passing through the tuning adapter for the TiVo to tune. If I bypass the tuning adapter the non-SDV'd channels work fine. I'd like to do away with the tuning adapter entirely, have Charter put all the SDV'd channels in a new seperate tier package called "SDV", and then I can opt out of of those channels. As it is now, the SDV channels are haphazardly scattered around and I'm forced to pay for them, even though most of the time I cannot receive them. And the fact that I have the stinking SDV adapter in the circuit drops my signal level to where I can't receive some of the other channels either. My wife gets tired of hearing me say "Wait, I'll have to go connect the adapter so we can get that channel", or "Wait, I'll have to go disconnect the the adapter so we can get THAT channel". Life is not supposed to be like this . . .
