Re: [TWC] Dallas/Ft Worth Metro Vol II -- Time Warner

said by np23:

Could Joe or someone post a full list of HD channels now available on TWC in DFW?
That's on the TWC website, or at least should be.

The most recent stuff might not be, but that's above in my post.

Anyone else's TV down? Just noticed around 10:15 that all my TV is down. Internet is up. Phone is up. Just TV.

Edit: tried rebooting my tuning adapter. It thought about it for a minute, and locked on, going solid. No change. I hope it's not my hardware, as the last thing i want is for a TWC tech to come out here. Ugh.

Edit 2: rebooted Tivo. It got stuck. Shit. Rebooting again. Make matters worse, there's tv in the bedroom, so it's local to my living room. See remark about twc tech from first edit.

Edit 3: second reboot of the Tivo worked. Im back. Odd that it just stopped showingtv like that. Thats a new one for me.

Saw a couple of changes in the latest (Sep 1) update on the TWC website:

Leased Access from Basic Service Channel 15 Analog to Basic Service Channel 15 Digital

Discovery Kids Channel 120 in Dallas and 100 in Greenville will change its name to “hub” on 10/10/10

leased access moving to digital only was in the august 2nd legal of the month as well

I believe they are making all of the PEG channels on 15.x subchannels as they are 15-x for QAM in dallas,plano,richardson,mesquite right now the other cities run them at 127-x channels for QAM

I went to tv.yahoo.com today and looked at their listings for TWC in Dallas. They have channel guide info for all the new channels. Which is good news for TiVo, we'll probably see it today or tomorrow.

But, they have listings for 725 (TVONE HD) & 726 (Galavision HD), which were not added a few days ago. Odd that there's program info for those.

They showed up here, too. Sat afternoon. They also added 725 & 726, which TWC didn't actually add yet.

Usually takes a number of hours to process the inbound data. When I know new channels are coming like this, I usually force a few calls a day just to make sure.

I wanted to try some new HD on TWC & the guy's coming Thursday. Which HD DVRs are being distributed these days? Is there a better model to ask for?

Motorola DCX3400 is the best they're giving these days.

Thanks chamber. Hopefully, he'll have one. I like the look better than the gray ones I had 4-5 years ago.

New here but been following the threads with interest. Using a Tivo HD + Moto Mstream card + MTR700 TA and the combo is working well. PQ is good and the SDV doesn't seem to be giving me any problems.

What is with TW flagging everything on a digital channel except for the OTA channels as CCI 0x02 (copyrighted and cannot download via TTG)???

That just a headend problem or normal policy of TW since they are a content provider themselves?

Thanks gang

Apparently that's just TW's M.O.:

»lauren.vortex.com/archive/000310.html

There was a time when TW wasn't this obsessive compulsive about setting CCI 0x02 for basically all channels, and about a year ago all CCI was 0x00 for a couple of months -- it was a nice time. But somebody at TW must have noticed and set everything to 0x02 again. Lame!

The problem is that FCC rules allow TWC to basically set CCI as they wish. There are a couple of exceptions for 0x03 (reserved for PPV) and unrestricted locals.

It is very unfriendly to consumers to set a blanket 0x02. The intent must be to cripple third-party devices and in turn make their own dysfunctional DVR more competitive.

Tivo isn't blameless in this situation--their multi-room viewing feature depends on making copies. They have known for years that most people can't use MRV because of the CCI issue but they have done nothing to implement a different strategy.

Is anyone noticing the Road Runner slowing to a crawl tonight? I'm on 30/5 and my ping is 335ms and .06Mb/s up. WTF? 75039

Over in the RR broadband board they're reporting some Level 3 problems. My line monitor (and most everyone in Texas) is showing increased ping times from the east coast.

I'm second down on the list there.

How's TWC's OnDemand selection for ABC/NBC/CBS/FOX network shows? The new fall lineup is packed with great shows.

You can check out TW's OnDemand offerings here:

»www.twondemand.com/

CBS and NBC are listed, but not Fox nor ABC. In a pinch, you can always watch something online, I suppose.

Saw a WFAA (local ABC channel 8) ad about TWC dropping them due to contract dispute tonight. What are the chances of them really not coming to terms? I have my Tivo connected to an antenna for OTA as well, should I shift my series recordings to OTA 8-1 to make sure I record them? Thoughts?

Huh. Wow. When did that happen?
