Level 2 Level 2 - Please Help... hdhomerun Prime vtc = 0

Today I spent 2.5hrs of my life to get zero support over the phone with the level 1 techs. I was hoping that they would at least get me with someone from the Cable Card team, but I was told that that is not a real team by 4 people, and the other 3 techs said that there is a team? 


Anyway, I'm at a point where I might cancel my service if I don't get the support that this company promises it's customers. 


The issue: 

I picked up a CableCard from my local ComCast. I registred the card online with the proper Host and Data ID. To make sure all was registered properly, I called support to validate. Support said everything matches and I should be able to scan for channels in 10 minutes. Well 2.5hrs later, and speaking with 8 techs total (never was I passed to Level 2 or Level 3 which really frustrates me). I'm pretty frustrated with support leading up to this point. 


Reading the forum for the last hour, there seems like there are a few techs on Xfinity's payroll that can help. I really home one of those people read this post to help me out.
