Value for money:
(ratings match consensus)
Have had TWC since 2005 when it was a Comcast market. It took 30+ truck rolls, over 2 months to get my 3 DVR's and HSI running.
HD selection is good, PQ is great, but the iGuide and Navigator software on the DVR's is truly awful. The GUI is absolutely terrible.
I have 75/5 wideband and get my advertised speeds, but my signal levels on the downstream have been decaying for several years.
FIOS is not available in my area, and uVerse stinks because it only allows a couple of HD streams at a time. I need 6 simultaneous HD streams.
Some suggested alternatives... May I suggest upgrading to WH-DVR?
Benefits of the upgrade:
Lower overall price: WHDVR with 2 playback boxes is cheaper than 3 HDDVRs.
More space: Standard HD-DVR is 60hrs each vs. 430 Hrs per WH-DVR.
Bonus - Networking: Right now if you want to watch what you record you will need to sit in the room you recorded it at; vs WHDVR you can access your recordings from any room you have a box. I will grant however that you need to set up your recordings from the DVR.
As a second alternative, you may wish to also consider upgrading to SignatureHome + 1 additional playback box
(you'll increase your overall recording time to 860 combined hours and get faster Internet, plus some cool extras in the process.
Just an FYI!
