Re: [iO] HBO Ondemand Breakup

Thanks.. I wonder if it has something to do with a frequency I am noticing that at my cousins house when he plays HBO on-demands with out breakup on the scientific atlanta's the frequency is 597 while at my house the frequency is 741.. could hardware such as a splitter cause a certain frequency to malfunction.. its just that I don't think this is the case because I have two drop wires and all my boxes are split between two different splitters with all direct runs and these splitter are only a few months old. It just seems unlikely to me that they went bad at the same time having the same problem. I hope it isn't the splitters because I have all my wires organized in a outside wire box and I don't want to reorganize them again =(

I had a tech come today. The tech told me something interesting he said that the tap was energized meaning there is an electrical interference from some live wire or something like that. I hope that once they find out whats going on with this that could clear up this random breakup. Because the breakup is now even starting to occur on other services such as DVR Plus and other on-demands. I did see that when the tech was on the poll outside my house he took a red meter and the meter started making noise when he placed it near the tap and thats when he said there is some type of electrical interference. Has anyone ever heard of this problem before??
