I wish that TWC, instead of choosing to "give" me the cable Discovery Channel in HD, with the DTA box, would let me choose one cable channel to get in HD.

I would choose Fox Sports SW.

That would make my day !

fox sports 1 has always been on 56 and speed occupied it before that and TWC moved speed to digital across the country and no system had it in analog when it shutdown Fox Sports 1 took over the former speed spot.

Fox Sports 1 is now on channel 56 in the DFW / N. Texas area, but, TWC has chosen to scramble the channel, so I cannot receive the channel with my TWC subscription to Basic and Std, using my TV's CQAM tuner. Instead I must use the DTA box I now pay $1 month for. But TWC already got their pay increase with the cable modem charge of $5 that has now been brought back. Cable is a funny busniness....

looks like TWC updated the firmware on the DCX3510Ms this morning from 12.31 to 12.36 as I remembered that the other day it was 12.31 and this morning it is 12.36 and I am expecting an ODN update soon as well.

Oh and TWC is slowly rolling out new upstream frequencies across the metro

instead of 24.5MHz, 29.5MHz, 33MHz, and 36.5MHz it is now:

19MHz, 23.8MHz, 30.6MHz, and 37MHz as the center channel frequencies being used and 3 of the channels are 6.4MHz upstream channels while 19MHz is still 3.2MHz wide

I have seen this setup at one location so far and someone else in Arlington posted a very similar setup here as well on broadbandreports.com

What your seeing is the QAM Channel used to push "EAS Alerts (Weather alerts, Amber alerts etc..)" to the Set top boxes.. They send this data via a dedicated QAM Channel that auto tunes the set top box / DVR to that channel when an alert is received from the sending party (Govt, EMA, Primary station for EAS in area, NOAA etc..).

I have seen this as well and it is only on the analog stations sometimes and the digital simulcast version of the channel would be working so sometimes the equipment that switches between demodulating the EAS QAM channels and the regular digital simulcast QAM channel of the particular analog it messes up.

I haven't cared to do a re-scan for my CQAM channels, but CBS 11 is on 18.1 Digital and CH 21 is on 18.2 digital, and they're on the analog stations as well.

Goodbye Tennis Channel, I was beginning to like you, and they you just up and left!

Re: TWC CBS / KTXA CQAM Programming Notes

Also 11 is not the Hallmark Channel it is the Hallmark Movie Channel SD which has never been on the system only the HD version it would be nice if they moved it to 111 or 113 after the preview is over so SD subscribers can keep getting the channel as it has been in HD on 774 for years now.

Yeah, I didn't pay the Hallmark channel entry much attention, as I am a Hallmark Sunscriber on ROKU, and I think that may be in HD, although I haven't watched it latley.

18.1 is showing Starz kids and Family East HD
18.3 is a slide
78.103 is showing Starz Kids and Family West SD
101.7 is Starz Kids and Family East SD
101.8 is a slide

so essentially the DTAs and Cable boxes have different feeds of the channels but QAM tuners get both.

Looks like the Starz party is over for now.
The Hallmark Channel is showing on 11 and 18.1, etc.

BTY, I see that TBN is just on 17 for C-QAM now, I see no digital channel now, it had been on 102-x.

The Tennis Channel is now on 18.2

looks like TWC is wrongfully encrypting TBN on 17 and 141 as by law they are not allowed to touch OTA channels and encrypt them if they are not a 100% digital only system. Also 11 is not the Hallmark Channel it is the Hallmark Movie Channel SD which has never been on the system only the HD version it would be nice if they moved it to 111 or 113 after the preview is over so SD subscribers can keep getting the channel as it has been in HD on 774 for years now. I also would like to know why TWC seems to want to encrypt the Tennis Channel on 12 and 387 on the cable boxes?

Oh and has anyone ventured into the 900s-1000s lately?

new channels for August

"Despite early reports stating we would receive credit for the unavailability of Showtime, my bill does not show any credit even though several days of the outage are within the service period.

Is this something that every customer will need to request individually, or were early reports incorrect?"

Showtime subscribers will receive a full credit for the days Showtime is unavailable. Bills are clearly generated in advance and take some time to catch up. It will be reflected on your next bill.

Any insider speculation on when the TWC/CBS dispute might be ending? I don't miss CBS so much, but I really miss my Showtime!

Re: TWC CBS / KTXA CQAM Programming Notes

said by Unbundled:

Okay, I'll check my settings !

BTY, the Starz East programming I'm seeing with the CQAM tuner at 18-1 is widescreen Digital.

But, I am not getting Digital W/S for Starz West on 78-103 or 101-3. The analong CH 11 is also not W/S. If there's a digital Starz West W/S avialbale for CQAM tuners, I have not found it.

okay 18-1 is HD not widescreen digital TWC may be not giving it full bandwidth though. It is showing as HD on my QAM tuner though and no there is not a HD version of Starz Kids and Family West in HD as TWC is likely just remapping a duplicate of the SDV version of Starz Kids and Family HD to the 18-1 in addition to it being SDV for the channel 840 Feed and they were able to get Starz West off of one of the satellite receivers that they have at the headend.

Yes, the problem was the Starz site defaults to a display of the East Channels, and even if you select "All Channels", it's still "East". I would have to "Log In" to their site for more options....

Thank you M870 for clearing that up !

(Bty, as a side note, do you know why the avatars do not show in this thread, but show elsewhere on the dsl site, ie check any of the News story Comment Sections....)
