Coyoteaz and everyone else-
Thanks again for everything. I happen to have been up during the few overnight recordings I've made in the past few weeks, so they've been okay - except for one movie that was interrupted by the stupid emergency test signal, but there's obviously nothing that can be done about that. At other times, I've had the cable box turn on and off with its timer, but I'm not sure that's working okay, I'll have to keep trying to see. It's interesting, though, that when I call Time Warner to complain, and I get someone who isn't clueless about the problem (which is about 75% of the time), they say both that switched digital video isn't supposed to work that way, meaning there isn't supposed to be any message on the viewer's end, and that TCM isn't even one of the channels that it applies to. Oh well... If it continues to be a problem that I can't get around by scheduling the cable box timer, I could, as you suggested, rehook my Replay TV, which has an IR blaster on it...Thanks again!
