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

said by DallasCust10 :

I had this happen. My neighbor cancelled their TWC and the tech came out and disconnected the line to my house instead of the one to his house. I called and reported an outage, waited for their guy to come out and reconnect mine and disconnect the neighbor. A few months later they were working on the lines and guess what, they disconnected me again. When I asked why they tried to blame my neighbor. That is my guess; the imbecile they sent out to disconnect you , or a guy checking lines went and disconnected her drop line thinking it was yours . When she called to report her cable was out they did not accept responsibility but tried to blame you.
So just tell your neighbor that you had yours disconnected and that the imbecile they sent out disconnected hers by mistake and won't own up to it.

Here are a couple notes.
If you ever get random channels giving the "this station should be available shortly code S0011 or S0012" this is an indication that a line amplifier / repeater is failing and not passing the handshake verification that you are authorized to view the channel. The channel may come back later, especially if you tune to it during an advertisement. This will continue until you get error S0600 no connectivity which means the amp failed and they have to replace it. Then enough people will complain that they actually send someone out to replace the amp. The problem is complicated by the fact that this may be intermittent in hot weather. The amp displays the problem only in afternoons when the sun is high and so is the temp; but when they send a guy out at 8AM there is nothing wrong.

actually the SDV handshake code is S0500 or S0600. S0011 or S0012 is a Bandwith issue in which too many SDV requests are being made at once.

I know Texas is the test market for many services. Has anyone with a Motorola box running Navigator received the guide upgrade? In LA the SA/Cisco markets got it last week while the Moto areas wait.

LOL... if you mean getting lookback, caller ID and start over that the rest of the nation got 5 years ago, yeah we got it.

We have all Motorola in n. Texas but depending on the unit, you get Capigator or iGuide. Both are equally awful.

Actually, I was referring to the updated "black guide" that Time Warner has been advertising, that supposedly enhances speed and functionality. I know boxes with iGuide will be staying this way. However the M boxes running Navigator should be getting the upgrade eventually. Just wondering if anyone has gotten it yet on a Motorola.

Nope. We still have the light grey Navigator on the 3400m's.

Is the audio out of sync on IDHD (Investigative Discovery) channel 728 for anyone else in Plano/Richardson? The SD version channel 206 is fine. Has been like this for at least the last couple of days.

I've been on the line with TW for about 20 minutes now, and we're still at the "let me get your account, check your signal strength" stage. I seriously doubt it's just me, and I don't know how to get someone at TW to just tune to channel 728 and take a look for themselves...

Great, they just rebooted my rebooted my box, which didn't fix anything, and want me to schedule a technician to come out.

Whatever. I don't even really watch ID. Just thought someone at TW would want to know and check it out.

I noticed a nifty feature on the iGuide boxes yesterday the zoom key on the remote now works on the DCX3200 and DCX3400 boxes running navigator so you can zoom without having to use the motorola settings menu also it looks like the text box that tells you if the screen is in stretch, zoom, wide etc. has some transparency

anyone else have their iGuide boxes Pause broken when changing the channel and then pausing? This is only affecting certain channels.

woke up to find that TWC is getting the NFL Network back on the Dallas system!

Also upstream bonding was released yesterday but you have to reboot the modem to get it working.
