Re: TiVo signal strength meter functionality

Guess I should have better explained the reason for my question.

Would definitely appreciate corroborating information from Bolt owners who have a functioning graphical “Signal Strength Meter – Cable” (Settings and Messages -> Channel and App Setting -> Signal Strength) when service provider is Time Warner Cable. Specifically: What Tuning Adapter and firmware version is installed, if your TiVo "Signal Strength Meter" functionality is working correctly?
Background info: Recently installed TiVo Bolt and Mini using MOCA networking. Initially installed looking at OTA programming and the Signal Strength Meter (Settings and Messages -> Channel and App Setting -> Signal Strength) graphical functionality was fully operational; signal strength meter over live TV. Had TWC cable activated/installed and the system (to include a Cisco STA1520 Tuning Adapter) works fine except for the non-functional “Signal Strength Meter “. The “Signal Strength Meter – Cable” (Settings and Messages -> Channel and App Setting -> Signal Strength) screen displays as a black screen with an inactive “signal bar register” that has the message “No Digital Signal”.
The “Tuning Adapter Diagnostics” and “TiVo box Diagnostics” at “Settings and Messages -> Remote, CableCARD, & Devices -> Tuning Adapter” both confirm the signal characteristics as being good.
As an aside, if the tuning adapter is restarted the “Signal Strength Meter – Cable” functions marginally while the tuning adapter is resyncing. The signal strength meter is over Live TV for any channel viewed, but only some channels are displayed with audio. The meter functionality locks up when the tuning adapter is synced.

Re: TiVo signal strength meter functionality

TA has nothing to do with signal strength. The TA is a cable modem and only provides a data connection for PPV, MOD and SDV channels

 

 The TA has up & downstream level metering just like a modem

TiVo signal strength meter functionality

Which model tuning adapter is installed with your TiVo Bolt? Does your Signal Strength Meter (Settings and Messages -> Channel and App Setting -> Signal Strength) graphical functionality work?... Does the meter display the signal strength at the bottom of the screen while the video/audio for the channel being checked is in the background?
