Rogers suggested workaround is to split the cable and feed it directly to your TV (assuming your TV has an analog tuner). This is inconvenient... they really should offer the Cisco 8652 box which includes an analog tuner.
The lobby channel (998) has been blank on my TV for many months now so this not a loss in my area.
