OK, I've read this all 28 pages of this thread and the other thread mentioned re: issues w/ Pioneer STB's and Samsung DLP TV's -- I have three questions, please:
1. What is the latest model HD STB for TWC Charlotte? I've been using the first one they came out with (SA Explorer 2000HD - no pic preview in guide while in HD) for a year or so and was told by a CSR not to upgrade 6 months or so ago because of "issues" with the then current model -- any issues with the latest and greatest? I like the idea of the scaling built into it and the supposed faster guide scrolling.
2. All of my previous HD viewing has been on my 61" 4:3 Toshiba RPTV or, for a very limited time, my Philips EDTV 42" Plasma w/ e-box. My new 56" Samsung DLP TV should be here this week and I was hoping to use it's DVI port for my, also soon to arrive, Samsung DVI-equipped DVD player but now am wondering if I should invest in a DVI switch to handle the "new" cable HD STB from TWC, but maybe it doesn't even work with the Samsung. Any suggestions?
3. Any way to view the hidden channels (292 & 293 for now) on my SA 2000HD? I don't havce a "diamond" button on my STB remote that I see.
Thanks in advance, E.
ps: Watching the Panthers/Cowboys game right now in HD -- awesome stuff, but I didn't watch the early game but read PQ was even better on it!
