Re: [STB] channels in 1000's cause box reboot

These 4-digit channel numbers apparently follow a standardized "Master Channel Lineup" (MCLU) that Comcast has developed. Many of the new HD channels that were additions with the "World of More" upgrades have channel numbers in the 1000's.

This has also been discussed in some previous threads:
»Standardized cable lineups coming soon
»Master Channel Line Up
»[HD] Channels in the 200 Range

I don't know how close Comcast is in rolling this out nationally, but here is what was said in a response on Feb. 14, 2011 to a question in the Comcast Voices blog entry on the new channel guide (»blog.comcast.com/2010/01/new-gui···r.html):

Comcast is in the process of creating one Master Channel Lineup for all Comcast markets. This means that most networks will have the same channel number, regardless of what part of the country the Comcast subscriber lives in. This project is rolling out market by market in a phased approach.

Phase one of that project is that we are moving new and existing HD channels into the 1000's channel range and introducing 4 digit channel numbers.

Phase two will see the channels being re-aligned into genre-based locations.

Comcast continues to add new and exciting programming content to our digital video channel lineup, including HD channels made available through the "World of More" program.

To ensure customers get the full value of all programming content, Comcast is realigning channels into logical, genre based locations. This channel realignment will help customers find the content they want easier.


I don't know if anyone has this Master Channel Lineup yet (like in Philadelphia? It was also said that few systems in Indiana would be testing it back in June 2010), but here is a list of some non-premium, HD channels with 4-digit numbers that I have compiled from my own system and other's posts so far:

telcodad, if you want to see the 1000 numbering, look at most of the lineups round Indianapolis, the lineups in Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi, and Connecticut. There are a few variations in the numbers.

The announced numbers for EWTN HD, Fox Soccer HD and GolTV HD in Williamsport, PA are all different than the ones used on the Philadelphia system.

OK, so the 4-digit channel numbers in this list may not be from the Master Channel Lineup then.

OK, thanks.

Up to 1099, the HD channels will vary by the local market, and the rest that you listed do seem to follow the genre groupings that were supplied by "Ken H" in the AVSForum (»www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthre···18576965 ):

All channels will be grouped by genre.

- 99 and Below: Will remain the same with channel numbers decided by the local market. All channels in this range will be replicated in higher channel numbers.

- 100's: News, Local, and Public Service, Educational, Government.

- 200's: General Entertainment and Lifestyle cable channels (FX, TNT, Discovery, etc)

- 300's: General Entertainment and Lifestyle cable channels (Lifetime, A&E, TLC, shopping channels etc)

- 400's: Music Channels

- 500's: Kids and Religious channels

- 600's and 700's: Sports

- 800's: Movies and PPV

- 900's: Premium channels

- HD channels will move to the 1000's with the same channel number as the SD version + 1000.

- International Channels will be in the 2000's.
