I just got back from my local TWC/Spectrum office (turned in an old Cisco 2-tuner DVR i no longer need) but i still have my Arris 6-Tuner Enhanced DVR which i'm keeping (i run it alongside my Tivo Premiere).
I asked the guy a few questions:
1. Are they still offering Whole House DVR? He said no.
2. What happens if my 6-tuner Arris Enhanced DVR fails? He said if i stay on Time Warner then they will replace it with the
same 6-Tuner Arris. But if i switch from TWC to Spectrum service and it fails after that, they'll only replace it with a
2-tuner DVR at reduced cost so he recommended i stick with TWC to avoid this happening.
3. He said both companies are still renting CableCards like before (for my Tivo) so no changes there.
In hindsight, i should have asked if Spectrum offers any sort of 4 or 6 Tuner DVR at all. Or if a new customer can choose
to go with Time Warner (instead of Spectrum) and get a 6 Tuner DVR.
