[TWC] Waco/Temple/Killeen Local HD No Longer in ClearQAM

I live in Temple, TX. Up until last week I was receiving receiving my Local channels in HD in clearQAM. Is anyone else experiencing this? I tried contacting support but of course could not get a straight answer whether the HD Locals will be in clearQAM again.

Here is the old channel list and a new one.

you are likely having a noise issue with the QAM carrier on 98 (111MHz) as everything else did not change. No TWC did not encrypt the clear QAM channels and they have to give a 30 day notice before doing so and have to be 100% digital and that has not happened yet.

Thanks, I'll try disconnecting everything else and see if that helps. Maybe I have a piece of equipment going bad.

TWC also uses 98 (111MHz) in Dallas for HD channels as well:

We have these on 98:
KDFW HD
KXAS HD
KXAS DT2 (Cozi TV)

You were spot on in your assessment! I changed out a splitter and moved my cable box up a level (probably should have been on the top level anyway) and I am able to decode 98 again. Maybe the cable box was overloading the frontend of the HD Homerun tuner. So my setup is now....
