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

said by motorola870:

I am pretty sure that the city of dallas can't help you as they no longer have any say over franchises that has been moved to the state level.

BTW TWC is not trying to make you get a DVR from them the only reason they have not deployed ESPN3D to Cable Card customers as it is sent out MPEG4 and Tivo Series 3 can't tune it so they don't give it to cable card customers. They just send out ESPN3D the way ESPN sends it to them. The only boxes that they have approved for ESPN3D are:

TiVo Premier is not an extension of the Series 3 line, it is Series 4 and most definitely can do MPEG-4

Tivo is working on a firmware update that will enable MPEG-4 over QAM signals.

I think this is the new v21.x firmware that will enable a new Netflix UI, Parental controls, and other new bugs and feature fixes.

A new MPEG-4 compatible firmware is coming to the Premiere and it should be available by the end of this month.

The v20.2 already does mpeg4 you do need the latest "licensed" TiVo Desktop. The free version you may be correct. There was a recent TiVo Desktop update that addressed this issue. TiVo had to fully develop mpeg4 in its development of the new HD DorecTiVo as all DirecTV HD content has been mpeg4 for several years mow.

Yes, but this new firmware enables MPEG-4 over QAM.

Anyone know if it's worth the headache to swap out my DCX3400 with the newer DCX3510 box? Any idea what I would gain? Larger hard drive?

Doesn't TWC disable the ports on the back of all their cable boxes? That would be nice to hookup one of my old HDs to it.

KAZD looks to going HD soon! though the channel number is still TBA.

I was thinking that we might be getting a local OTA HD channels soon but it was not KAZD that I had in mind it was KTXD as they have their main channel in 16:9 1080i with sidebars OTA. I wonder what they are going to do OTA drop the sub channels and broadcast 1 single HD channel or drop 2 SD subchannels and have a .1 , .2 , and .3 subchannels?

I am going to assume that channel 399 is where it will end up in Dallas and channel 726 in Greenville maybe with Galavision HD moving to 812 in Greenville?
