Re: If you could add a product, feature or make a change...

There needs to be a way to prevent the dancing yellow blob from causing recordings of program sound unaccompanied by program video. Screen saving is a lie. LCDs don't need protection form doing their job. No A/V equipment in my building needs protection from doing its job.

Ever since timers got replaced by reminders, there's been no way to guarantee a program is played from start to finish without interruptions created by Bright House software while I'm away from the house for more than three hours, or need to get a full night's sleep while the program I want to watch is scheduled.

This AM after having switched from TNT 1237 to USA 1238 prior to calling it a night last night, and with BHN box set with a reminder for 09:00 for a pair of SVU recordings today, my recorder had two hours of the dancing blob accompanied by the entirety of sound from two SVU episodes. There needs to be a restoration of timers, during which periods both audio and video stay uninterruptibly on. If that's not going to happen (there's nothing to stop it but BHN policy), then there needs to be at least 3X as many reminder timers available so that there are enough of them that they can be set to leave the desired channel and then return to it proximate to recording start.

As it is I have to set new reminders daily, as 8 are not enough to last through a whole week of routine and leave a reasonable number for non-routine.

People shouldn't have to pay an extra monthly BHN fee to replicate the function of perfectly good hardware they already own.

Hi,

Do you know what HD channels will be added? Hopefully more starz and others.

sneff,

They add them every quarter. I post the public notices on another site and also get them from Michigan and Bakersfield. Where are you at?

BTW: The reason we do not have more HD Starz is because they are on a month to month deal. This is the reason is the reason it took so long for some divisions to finally get Weather Channel HD. Since it has been month to months at least two years, a deal should be near and we will likely get all the Starz/ available Encore/Plex HD within a few months of Time Warner striking a new deal for it.

What happened to HDNet? I recall it had some cool programming. I think it was dropped a few years ago. Any chance it may come back?

Looks like I missed the forum response to your post. I'm curious how BH got this resolved for you.

TWC SportsNet SD/HD (National Version) TWC Deportes SD/HD (National version, Pac 12 Regional Networks HD, Sundance HD, Shopping HD Channels, etc.

Again, I'll have to start posting my list here.

It got dropped a little over 3 years ago. HDNet now AXS.TV wanted to be on Digital Basic with HDNet Movies staying on the HD Pak.

The old HDNet is being phased out and I've heard programs like Art Mann are now censored and they are getting rid of stuff. It's definitely not going to be the same channel anymore and is getting bad reviews.

It's possible they will push harder to get on more systems though. We will se but the best thing is the addition of NFL Network.

Thanks for the info...sad to see they ruined what was kind of a cool channel. I remember watching the old HDNET quite often. IR that they had some good original programming at the time.

It didn't. I think the particular instance was a fluke. I haven't seen it again on USA, TNT or any other mainstay, just on SDV channels.
