Cable card no VCT



I'm now on my third cable card trying to get my Silicon Dust tuner to work properly.  The first two got nothing but the ten or so unencrypted government access channels.  This current one, the third one, doesn't even get a VCT.


I've seen numerous other posts related to this and it almost always seems to be something involved in "routing" on the Comcast end.  The nice lady in the 'Cablecard Department' has been a saint but seems unable to resolve this.


What information do you all need from me to resolve this?
