I had the same thing happen to me. Before I got my Prime, I had two
STBs. A couple of weeks after I got the Prime up and running with the
CableCard, I finally got around to returning on of the STBs while I was
running some errands at lunch time. When I turned in the box, the
customer service rep asked me to confirm that I still had another STB,
and I replied that I did as well as a CableCard. She spent a lot of
time furiously typing on her computer to enter the data for the STB that
I was returning as well as who knows what else. Recordings started
failing shortly thereafter, which I noticed late in the afternoon. The
web interface on the Prime showed the channels as not being subscribed.
The CableCard status showed that it was still paired and activated.
I called Comcast and described the problem. I had to repeat several
times that the error being reported was that the channels were not
subscribed. The tech put me on hold for a minute and by the time he got
back to me the problem was fixed.
