Nesn+

I have TiVo series 4 (Premiere) with cable cards, in NH. None of my systems are doing NESNPlus (channel 727). It says the channel is not authorized.

I have called Metrocast twice and they say they have sent a refresh. but no luck. No other channels have this problem.

Now thanks to my "service assurance plan" someone will come out and check it out ...on Wednesday. Although this has been like this since April 4.

I'm beginning to think I may want to go DirecTV...

Anyone else having this problem with S4 Tivos and Nesn Plus HD? The standard def channel (77) is fine.

Update:
Had a truck roll today. Which turned into 4 truck rolls.

I have a very clean coax now, but still no 727. Not sure what else to do now. Maybe DirecTV? Not sure

We switched to direct tv a few years ago, unless they really ticked me off we wouldn't volunteer to go back. At that time it was comparing apples to sauteed tuna and a smooth Merlot.

Not a big fan of the apple

Although they did fix the channel after 24 days, I gave up and switched to DirecTV.

My internet was off for four days as well.

I dropped off the cable cards, they wanted to know why and I explained that it should not have taken that long to resolve it and no other solutions were given -- no "we can give you a box to get buy until we get it fixed" or "here's a credit for your inconvenience" ...I was pretty disappointed

So, hopefully the internet will stay on when they put the filter on the pole to formally shut off video...

Sorry to hear about your problems!

I am not minding the DirecTV either. Go figure though, right after I get it, they come out with the Genie, which would cost me an arm and half a leg to upgrade.

The genie is nice. although it's odd to have networked DVRs. I think they use some sort of Coax networking because they plugged in something into my router which has coax going into it. It's not MoCA..maybe DECA? Not sure.

Yea, both my boxes are on the network too.

I do like the whole home DVR, but sometimes, just two tuners isn't enough!
