reply to TrevorTX
currently no programming is displayed in 1080p that is for future use mainly for future HD VOD enhancments.

The way the motorola DCX series of boxes work is that it will output 1080p only if it is broadcast by a network. It will not upconvert programs that are in 480i/720p/1080i.

Just noticed..

»www.macrumors.com/2011/03/14/tim···pad-app/

That screen capture from the TWC iPad app shows it watching BBC America HD. I don't have that on my iPad here in Garland. I wonder if the iPad app's channel availability is based on whether or not your local TWC actually shows that channel in HD.

For now. I'm sure it's coming eventually.

Although, heavy use of this might run up total cap limit quickly. iPad viewing app due tomorrow supposedly.

Is a truck roll required to set up Internet service, or do they just mail you the cable modem?

Depends... Extreme requires a truck roll... non-Extreme doesn't.

Well, AT&T finally dropped the bandwidth capping hammer down today:

»www.engadget.com/2011/03/13/atan···comments

AT&T says it will implement a 150GB monthly cap on landline DSL customers and a 250GB cap on subscribers to U-Verse high speed internet starting on May 2nd. AT&T will also charge overage fees of $10 for every additional 50GB of data, with two grace periods to start out -- in other words, the third month you go over the cap is when you'll get charged. DSLReports says it has confirmation from AT&T that these rates are legitimate, and that letters will go out to customers starting March 18th.

I am done doing business with them. Can anyone tell me if TWC caps or throttles their bandwidth? How does TWC compare to AT&T DSL? Are there any other ISPs besides those two?

Thing is, at this point, there's really only two channels left I want to add.

BBC America HD
NFL Network HD

The latter is probably still caught up in the pissing match between cable operators and whatnot. Given how much the NFL loves money, I'm really surprised they haven't worked SOMETHING out to get it in front of other eyeballs with cable operators.

I recall something before the 2009 season that something was close to being worked out, but it obviously hasn't happened. Has anyone heard anything new regarding NFLN on TWC?

not really as they all will be SDV except for maybe Boomerang (SAP) those HD channel adds are just being duplicated to the el paquetazo tiers no new bandwidth is being dedicated to them.

I have not lost everything but I've had random digital channels become unavailable the past couple of nights. I'm in 75006. I first noticed it Sunday night and it was the worst then. After power cycling and having support send a hit to my box, I have a truck roll scheduled later today. I'll let the tech know others are having issues and may just show him this discussion if he comes out.

reply to motorola870
Still without all digital channels as of Monday. Will be resetting each morning to check if they come in eventually. Tech that called me wasn't sure if reset was necessary to get them when fixed, but I reset anyway. Will quiz the guy Friday during service call about what the issue is. I have one of the newer boxes, DCX3400, so I do not know if it has anything to do with that. All my friends with the older boxes seem fine, who knows. Will be an enlightening friday.

there should be another legal notice in the morning they had a special notice due to the fact that the VOD channels moving required a 30 day notice and they did not want to wait until the next notice date to post the changes.

Smithsonian HD on demand will only be available with the HD tier.

reply to chamberc
Well, scheduled a tech call this moring. This afternoon, received three calls from twc techs discussing major issues they were dealing with because they are currently, or last night, did a channel remapping, and several areas in Dallas had lost channels saying on the screen "not authorized". Did not get much info from two of the calls, but the techs continually asked at the end of each call for me to check my numerous channels that disappeared to see if they were showing up. My thinking is they are using complaints to pinpoint problem areas and going from there. I told the techs the channels were still gone, even after resets, etc. Guess my location has not been dealt with yet. Basically I am missing the entire digital package over 100, and their corresponding HD counterparts. I am in 75248 area in the north. Tech still coming Friday, but was made aware there is a major area wide issue due to something TWC did in the last day. Also told i would be credited for the days without service. I chuckled at that comment

If the whole of Dallas had lost digital channels I think the tech would know!
Maybe its just an individual issue.

Lost Fox Soccer Channel today on HD and regular. Says, "Not Authorized" instead of the dreaded "This Channel will be available shortly"". Is TWC in Dallas changing the tiers or something? Was watching it this week just fine, pay for the service, had tech support on the phone saying the channel SHOULD be there because I pay for it, but it is gone.

Anyone else not getting FSCHD? Been having huge issues with the new box just released and having to reset the thing about once a week because channels disappear.
