Are you a nerd? Just kidding. These channels are hidden from otherwise normal programming (reserved for new channels to be released). If you review this thread you will find how to enter this mode and understand what we mean. The banner will specifically identify that station...even if the screen is black with no sound. This is how some of us on the board know about new programming before anyone else.
Originally posted by Davew0670 I've read this thread a week or two ago and saw how to access hidden mode. Now I just finished reading the whole thing again and I dont see it now. I knew I should have written it down right then.
On my Pioneer 3510HD (not remote) I press the "Select" button and the "Diamond" button at the same time. Not sure for other boxes.
The last couple of days I have been getting very loud pops/static when I switch from one HD channel to another. Today I am not getting the sound and nothing has changed from yesterday to today as far as my system goes.
I am using TWC using the 3510HD box and the digital out to my receiver.

your issue is simple.Either you have a loose audio cord or its bad.Check your connection.If its tight then call TWC.It may be the box itself.
Initially that is what I thought. Everything is tight. It hasn't done it all day. TV has been on all day. Also it was only on the HD channels. I will take your advice and trade the box in if it does it again.
Makes me glad I have cable. Wouldn't want to shell out $300+ after just buying the TV...
Thanks guys. I am able to see the 2 hidden channels. Now i'm going to have to add new buttons on my Pronto under my HD channel list. Now if I could only use my DVI port. Hopefully pioneer will have a firmware update for the box soon.

Yep same problem here... I have the Sammy Pioneer problem as well...
I don't know about espnhd but I do know that digital phone is coming soon to the Carolinas through TW. Flat monthly rate that includes long distance. From what I have heard the quality is outstanding for VOIP, very comparable to land line service.
I will have one bill for cable, phone, internet connection, security. If only they would start selling electricity and natural gas the postman could skip my house completely...
Cool thanks for the heads up. Other than crappy SD I have been fairly pleased with TW CLT.
I wonder if they will have an option that will not include long distance. We currently use phone cards and don't have any long distance companies tied to our phone. It has worked very well for us. We usually pay a little over .03 cents per minute with no fees of any kind. We get the cards from Sams or BJ's.

We just use our cell phones for long distance. Can't beat free.

As someone who has had both TWC and DirecTV at the same time let me say that the SD is no better on DirecTV than it is on TWC.
have you had someone come out and check your cable lines in your house? Signal strength, etc. Maybe you need a line amplifier or something. Although not outstanding I don't have a problem with my SD channels...
Just call TW and tell them you are having a problem and they should come out and check it for you.
