So I actually need help from all of YOU out there! I have been in HD TiVo H-E-Double Hockey Sticks for a whole week because it turns out that Time Warner cable, (the monopoly that controls cable in my area), is not compatible with my brand new, shiny, HD TiVo.
It took me a week without TV (still counting) and talking to the TiVo people, Time Warner people and multiple cable visits to my house to find out that I actually need a TUNING ADAPTER in order for my TiVo to be compatible with the new cable cards that now replace your cable box. (Here's a picture of what they will supposedly look like, and also if you click on the picture it takes you to an article that tells you more about them:)
But here's the kicker: MY CABLE COMPANY DOESN'T HAVE THEM YET. I'm on a darned waitlist to get one once they do roll them out, and I'm just amazed that NO ONE at Time Warner had ANY idea what I was talking about. Has anyone else had this problem? If so, did you end up getting a tuning adapter? Anyone know where I can even get a trial or beta version of one so I at least have TV for the interim? I'm SOOOOO frustrated and decided that YOU guys out there probably know more than the 20-some-odd people I've spoken with this week about this issues.
HELP! I need your advice, information, personal experiences, etc...anything that will help me have TV during the NBA Playoffs!! email me your info (or post in the COMMENTS section below) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
