Some channels stopped working!?


Post by cjames9001 » Tue Jul 21, 2020 2:45 am

Hey everyone, just curious if this has happened to anyone else.

I have comcast and I've had this cable card and 6 tuner infinitv card in a couple of PC's since 2014. More or less everything has worked flawlessly since then. However the past couple of days I got an error stating "[my recording] was not recorded due to an unexpected failure" with error code 0xC004050B.

All the failures were coming from Tuner 1 and it would successfully use another tuner to get it recorded so I figured it was nothing to worry about and would probably resolve itself with a restart, which I hadn't done in a little while.

Now today I have NO signal from several different channels. For example I can get CBS, Fox, SciFi channel, but I cannot get HD Comedy Central, HD HGTV, HD USA, HD TrueTV, but I CAN get SD Comedy Central, SD USA, but not SD HGTV and SD TrueTV. It seems like it is related to HD national cable channels but local programming channels are OK...

That being said the issue seems odd, I did call comcast and they did about an hour of resetting things, sending signals, restarting the PC to no avail. He ended up saying that he thought it was probably a problem with the cable card and that they go out every 5-7 years. I've had it almost 6, so that falls in line with his opinion of the failure rate.

I was just wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience an if a new cable card actually fixed the issue, or if I should be worried that my infinitv tuner is going out after 6 years of service :( :( :( :(
