According to its corporate blog, Time Warner Cable is beginning to roll out the first phase of its switched digital video (SDV) channel delivery system in New York City. Once channels are delivered using SDV they will no longer be available to CableCARD devices, like TiVo HD DVRs, unless subscribers have a tuning adapter.

The transition will initially affect approximately 800 TiVo/TWC customers. Once phase two begins in July, it will affect the majority of TWC/TiVo customers in New York City (roughly 6,000 in total).

Time Warner Cable customers with TiVos in the New York City area can pick up a free tuning adapter at a local TWC store.

"We currently have enough tuning adapters for the roughly 800 customers that will be affected by phase 1 of this rollout. These customers will get a phone call from us directly, advising them to pick up an adapter," wrote Jeff Simmermon, director of digital communications with TWC and author of the blog post.
 
"We have another large shipment of tuning adapters coming to us in time for phase 2 of the rollout, which will occur in the second half of July and switch over our remaining areas," he added.
