My Cable Card...and thoughts
OK- 10:10 the Adelphia tech showed up, Inserted the CC , wrong CC.
Made a few calls and come to find out , the one he had was for another distric with a diferent line up. So the first one didn`t work. So he said that he would be back between 3-5 pm , fine.
OK, "Jim" was early , thats was a good thing considering that I had about two hours worth of work to do to put the HT back togther ( and take some time to clean + detail ).
CC # 2 >>
Worked (so to speak ), could not use my Radio Shack amp
it blocked the HD channels but worked fine with broadcast , so now that I have it disconnected , I have "grainy" channels on broadcast SD and basic cable channels.
I ended up with quite I bit of channels ,some good ,some very good ,some so bad I`m still shaking my head "why do we pay for these" in example "The Word Net."
The really good ones like TCM , FMC ect are all SD.
That fantastic one are HD Moives , Discovery HD Theater and my local PBS.
Fox isn`t bad either as I`m typing this I`m watching the NE Pat`s in 720p 16X9
I hope to be watching the Red Sox on NESN HD ( if I don`t pass out first LOL )
All and all not bad , BUT , why has my TV lost it`s program selection and it`s add digital channels ? Why would that be gone ? And what the heck does Cable Card reset do ?
I thinking by hitting reset , I`ll get my channel program back as well as digital add , might have to phone in the host ID numbers to get it acivated again ? OR just turn of the tv for the card to "talk" to the main server.
Very good Tech , really . He called before showing up and called again say that he could come early , all in all great service. ( those metal "clip boards" still make me nervous ).
So thats it for now , no HBO or Sho , just HD Plus and Digital line-up.
I would really like to know what happened to my tv`s set-up controls , like what would happen if I had to do a "hard reset" on the tv?
O-well ( deep subject
) the Pats are ahead , so I got a game to watch
I would like to thank you all , for the help you folks have taken the time to offer.
Still need some answers , many thanks !
