Thanks...

had to wait for someone to tell me.....

Curious to know if all 8 channel modem people are on the same 8 frequencies - or if they mix it up.

For some reason all HD channels bitrate come lower on twc compared to FIOS and Diretv. I made the comparison at a friends house, and mine. Twc has the available bandwidth now, and still offering an inferior product. Obviously the Internet upgrade is nice but they are lacking on the video department.

Is anyone having picture and audio breakups and issues following the channel lineup change? I've had intermittent problems on ABC Family - on both Channel 38 and 122 -and on TNT. Is it just a coincidence?

How do you know that definitively?

The previously announced cease carriage of France 24 has been cancelled.

On or about August 1, 2014 we will launch Big Ten Network on ch. 382 and Mundo Fox on chs. 807 and 1229. Big Ten Network will be part of our Variety Pass and Sports Pass service offering and Mundo Fox will be part of our Standard TV service offering. Also on that date, Big Ten Network HD will be offered as part of our Variety Pass service offering. All of these services will require two-way capable digital cable ready equipment, such as a Time Warner Cable-provided set-top box or a CableCARD-equipped Unidirectional Digital Cable Product (UDCP) used in conjunction with a Tuning Adapter. Other UDCPs may not be able to access these services without additional equipment, such as a set-top box.

Starting August 8, 2014 and ending August 10, 2014 Starz will offer a free preview. Starz will be available to all digital subscribers and may contain PG, PG-13, TV-14, TVMA and R Rated programs. To find out how to block this preview, and for more parental control information, visit TWC.com or call 800-892-2253.

Since the switch to the new lineup, the local affiliate channels (2, 4, 5, 7, etc) aren't switching to the HD feed when i tune to them. I'm using a Tivo Roamio with cable cards and tuning adaptor and wondering if anyone else is seeing similar issues.

thanks

Weird... I also have a Tivo Roamio, smallest one with the four tuners] about a month before the new lineup it would only tune to HD even on the lower supposedly SD basic cable channels. Now the only way it tunes SD is if it only comes in on SD.
Once in a while you want to record it on SD if for example a programme is shown letterboxed on a 4:3 screen and with the Roamio the Zoom function only works with SD not HD channels.

Maybe restarting it might help get your 2/4/5/7etc networks to display in HD?.. even on twc own cable boxes AutoHD doesn't exist anymore.

Reboot fixed the HD/SD problem for me. Also reboot the tuning adapter.

Second reboot on the tuning adapter looks to have fixed it - thanks for the advice. Had rebooted it once but hadn't done anything.

Answering my own query-- I discovered that TWC is indeed carrying WLIW in HD. It's on Channel 1222 in HD. Still SD on Channel 21.

Got a letter from Time Warner the other day telling me I can trade in my modem for a new one with much faster speeds. What's up with that? I think I'm on Turbo now. So I can go from 20/2 to 100/10, just like that?

I don't remember. It's gone now. I got the new modem the other day. Turns out my connections here are above average. My previous plan was for 15/1, although I was getting 20/2. My new modem is therefore 50/5, but I've been consistently getting 54/5.5. Not a bad little jump.

Does anyone know if there is a difference between the Motorola SB6183 (which I can't seem to find for sale anywhere) or the Motorola SB6180 (which is avail on Amazon for $110.00)? I am entitled to faster speeds with my Ultimate plan but my current modem Motorola 6121 only allows up to 50 down on TWC here in NYC.
gtsgts's Avatar gtsgts 09:34 PM 07-14-2014
I have ultimate internet. The modem I have is a Motorola sbg6580. Is this modem capable of recieving the speeds of 300? Seem to be reading conflicting answers. I just did a speed test and my speed is currently 113.79 Does this mean I now have TWC Maxx but need to upgrade my modem?

Via the chat the rep said it isn't coming to my area until around September, and I will have to upgrade my modem.

6180 bonds up to 8 channels and 6183 bonds up to 16 channels. the 6183 is set for retail in the coming months probably probably around $200. TWC doesn't officially have the 6180 on the approved list but users have successfully been able to get it activated by telling support they are activating a 6141 or 6580. TWC will only allow up to 100mbps for 8 channel modems. the 6180 can be bought refurbished on eBay for $35 so there is no reason to buy it on amazon.

capable, yes. allowed, no. TWC will only provision 8 channel modems up to 100mbps. Anything above will require 16 channel modems which are available for rental.
