Re: [iO] New Jersey All Digital

Someone else would have to chime in who has a Tuning Adapter who's system has gone all digital to confirm which channels if any still need them. You can also try removing the adapter and see if you still need it as well.

Historically it has taken about 3 months after the switch to digital for your system to stop using SDV for:

NHL Network HD (channel 791).
Big Ten Network & Big Ten Network HD (channels 413/720).
Smithsonian Channel & Smithsonian Channel HD (channels 163/780).
Limited premium HD movie channels.

They normally provide messages on the lower guide channel and bills when channels will no longer need a tuning adapter.

After that you will only need a tuning adapter for:

Subscription international programming packages, including iO en español, iO Russian, iO Korean, etc.
Subscription sports packages, including MLB Extra Innings, NBA League Pass, NHL Center Ice, etc.
3D on iO TV

Unless you're on one of the following systems that don't use SDV for anything: Bronx, Brooklyn, Elizabeth, Hudson, Newark, and Paterson.

Makes little sense to me why it takes months to complete the switch!
It should be thirty days after date they start with messages.
We are missing several HD channels and still suffering with the sdv, channel not available messages. Please explain why it takes sooooo long.

I disconnected the TA and could not receive the SDV channels.

That said, will there be any notification that SDV is done? I assume CV will want these F!@#$%ng Tuning Adapters back.

On Demand doesn't work with cable card devises, with or without a tuning adapter.

OK, but does On Demand allocate a SDV channel or what?

QAM frequencies are allocated to on demand just as they are to linear and SDV channels. If there was an over request for on demand you could have problems as was the case when they offered a free on demand movie during the ABC dispute.
