So ETA for West LA seems to be mid September. PDF does say the channel listing is from June 2014. So wouldn't be surprised if there continue to be delays. :P

I was doing the same (except using an indoor antenna...my dummy self didn't realize that I could split and get free local channels). After reading about the upcoming switch to digital and encryption of QAM, I inquired with TWC about switching to a starter TV and internet bundle. I'm actually paying less now for the bundle than I was paying for Turbo Internet by itself.
So yeah its not all doom and gloom. You should call them up and see if they have any deals available to you for bundling up. Also like someone mentioned the DTA is free until 2016. After that its 99cents a month which isn't too bad. At least in my case, this is way better than having my tv signal dropping in and out every so often and having to adjust an antenna any time I wanted to watch those pesky VHF channels that always seem to be losing signal on indoor antennas.
If someone activated a Cisco 170HD on their account would I be able to use it?
If you're on the same head end as "someone," you also have paid for cable service, and you hook up "someone's" box to your TV outlet, sure it will work. TWC doesn't know exactly where the box is, just that its somewhere in the same system.
It won't work at my house, since this head end uses the Technicolor DTAs.
