I actually had a ceton card that was having problems with CCI data. It
was indeed timing out when requesting the CCI data from the cablecard.
On a whim, they RMA'd my card and the problem went away. However, I
had added some code to my patch that was detecting that situation and
attempting to retune it. Also, when the problem happened, there was a
corresponding error message in the Ceton's log (accessible through the
web interface).
