This is going to be the OP's main issue, TWC does some shady things
with all of their channels and they are not copy-freely.  Therefor
none of his extenders will work with his cable card content.  I
mentioned this in his original thread and pointed him at a combination
of the  HDPVR and HDHR, but it looks like the message was ignored.
