Yikes.  Just a shot in the dark, but the easiest thing to try would be 
another cable, just to be on the safe side.

When I was setting mine up in late December, I had one cable that just 
didn't want to seat all of the way in to the card.  It went in to the 
port on the TV with no problems, but just refused to seat all of the way 
in to the PVR-150.  I tried another cable, and it slid in and seemed to 
give that satisfying feeling of being locked in there...

It could also be a bad card (if it is a new card)...
