When I lived in SC, I loved TWC. That was back when Diana (The person that started this thread) was still involved on AVS. Diana was awesome. I moved to Ohio about the same time as she moved to Connecticut, and my area was a former Adelphia area. We stayed with them for almost 3 years, and had very, very few HD channels added, and a couple taken away. I have been fed up for the last few months and called a local D* installer. I waited until the installer had the SWM available and all our local channels in HD. I had them install last week, and it's awesome. We had a snow storm this week, and never lost a single minute of signal, or picture quality for that matter. I was afraid to change to them, but now I'm thrilled I did. I am waiting for an all out thunderstorm this spring to see how resilient my signal is, but I won't even be disappointed if it does cut out during a major downpour because it's worth it to me to get the huge numbers of HD channels available on D*. I figure if TWC ever adds some HD in the future, or gets SDV in my area, I may try them again after my contract is up. But for now, I love my D* and am keeping TWC only for roadrunner. Make sure you research your installer before you get D* and don't just call 1800directv and get some moron installer if you do decide to change though. My installer went above and beyond for us and we have very strong signals and a well mounted dish. Rambling over.
It's not just a hobby, it's an obsession...
