BHNtechXpert, do you want me to report this elsewhere and if so, what format?

More info: I looked up in zap-2-it and the info listed for the bridzillas on the DVR was the info for this weeks Shannen Says in zap-2-it. The guide got the shows ALL screwed up. Maybe it's time for a new guide company.

Or is it possible that in her haste she selected the wrong shannon and didn't realize it? Just asking

We have been spoiled so far this year and know things on those carriage deals are getting dry but a one channel HD update would be nice even if it is a shopping channel so we can get that count closer to 200.

Something like Sundance HD, FUEL TV HD, a shopping channel HD or maybe an outliner like TV Japan or NHK World HD could be possible. After all, there are only 11 HD channels on the deals besides the Starz HD ones (Encore, Indieplex and Retroplex included) and the Fox Sports RSN's.

This could be a quarter we get nothing but let's hope for at least something and I'm pulling for Sundance HD.

On a final note, this will be the first cycle with George hunting down the notices except for this Friday. Let's see how he does.

Since we've been so good you won't be too disappointed if we only come back with "The Dog Walking Channe HD" this time around would you?




Just kidding Thanks for your passion HDOrlando and one of these days send me an email please.

This is not a new thing. Navigator has always acted this way for me when close to the airtime of a show you're using the select button on.

Gary,

If we just get just one HD channel, that will be great.

I am aware based on my research that there is not much to add off of TWC carriage deals anyway. It is nice how your starting to launch things everywhere but the Panhandle around the same time (C-Span 2 and 3 HD, Disney Jr HD, NESN HD).

My passion is just like those Direct TV customers on some other forum who get an HD announcement sometimes at 3 AM in the morning from an insider.

I will definitely E-Mail sometime.

Nope. Saw it myself. Shannen Says was not a selected recording from the guide, it is in the recording manager. The show description on Zap-2-it for this weeks episode of Shannen Says is the exact description the DVR showed on the recorded show Bridezillas. And the description Zap-2-it had for Bridezillas wasn't close. This was definitely the fault of the guide company. I'm guessing there could possibly be some data we don't see that made the DVR think the show was Shannen Says since the description was for that show. Uggh

Good morning from Walt Disney World! Just an FYI: Disney used to have either their own cable/sat service but sometime in the past month they have made a deal with the devil....err, I mean DirecTV. I am not sure who/what they used before but it was so much better than what they have now. It looks awful, everything is pixillated and nothing, save for a few shows, is in HD. If I were someone thinking of switching and watching this I'd stay with my cable company!

My flabber has been gasted and my gob has been smacked. Anything else?

Looks like no notice today which means we will be getting it on Monday unless we missed it but I doubt that.

I'll be grabbing the paper early but will let George post hopefully good news on Monday.

I am sure D* is much better in a different environment but there it was just awful. Trying to watch the hockey games when it was dropping out and pixellating was horrid. At the bars though there were no issues, just in the room.

The cynic in me says they do it on purpose so you're not comfortable in your room. Can't make any money if you're there. Sounds like it worked on Nayan too. She ended up spending $ in a bar!

PeterLewis: If NFL Network happens, I doubt we hear anything until at least August.

My gut tells me were getting HD and it might just be Sundance HD and possibly others on the carriage deals. It's also possible that TWC/BHN has come to an agreement to carry AXS.TV HD/ HDNet Movies. I do not have a need for either but it would knock out one of the big 3.

I would love NFL Network, as I did check it out at Disney and they had a couple shows I would watch. AXS and HDNet Movies would be nice too. If we do not get NFL Network, follow the link in my signature. I really want to make it happen this year.

Wonder what it is hopefully it is something good. It might be the NFL Network just maybe as another cable company just got a deal done with the NFL Network. I have seen channels added before that are out of season such as Gunnison Colorado getting MLB Network HD when the season is almost over. So it might be the NFL Network!

My TWC area is starting to deploy Cisco and Samsung cable boxes in addition to Motorola boxes all of these new Boxes are using DSG (DOCSIS SETTOP GATEWAY) Cable modems are used for communications also the DCX-M motorola boxes use it as well.


So my system is deploying:

Samsung SMT-3362
Samsung SMT-3372
Cisco 4742HDC
Cisco 8742HDC
Motorola DCX3400M
Motorola DCX3200Mp2
Motorola DCX3510

Nayan: I have a good feeling about NFL Network this year. They got close last year so hopefully it happens.

Kevin: I think it will be at least Sundance HD given how it just got announced for a third TWC system. Then again, HSN HD and QVC HD are on most if not all TWC systems so you never know.

We will probably find out about NFL Network from the media when it happens so I doubt we hear about it in the notice.

For the people who do not look over the link in my signature or just feel it is too long, here are possibilities for Monday's notice.

The following channels are currently on other Bright House (Only Nuvo TV and RFD-TV) and other Time Warner Cable Systems.

Africa Channel HD
Fuel TV HD
Halogen HD
HSN HD
Jewlery TV HD
NHK World HD
Nuvo TV HD
QVC HD
RFD-TV HD
Sundance HD
TV Japan HD

While there are hopes that 1 of the remaining big 3 (NFL Network, AXS.TV/HDNet Movies and more HD Starz) things in HD we do not have will be in the notice, it might not be that likely although all have a reasonable chance of happening this year.

- If NFL Network/RedZone happens, we will likely find out about it via the Internet on a news day not via a notice and not until at least August or September so they can avoid paying he high costs until the schedule of 13 games starts.

Given how close they were last year along with the extra games that were added, my gut says it happens in August or September.

- AXS.TV HD (HDNet) and HDNet Movies actually have a shot to return to TWC/BHN three years after they were pulled. There had been no talk of them being re-added until Ryan Seacrest's company bought a share of the channel. There main goal is to get back some of the systems they lost over the past couple of years and Mark Cuban did say when I asked him about Time Warner Cable/Bright House "We are talking to them".

I've read June or possibly sometime this summer is when the change to AXS.TV will take place. If they can get a deal done to get AXS.TV HD (Maybe they will lower the price even more to get it on Digital Basic) on Digital Basic, we will likely see HDNet Movies on the HD Pak or Movie Pass. BTW: Anyone notice how nothing has been added to HD Pak in around 3 years? Maybe they will eventually merge the two packages. The real prize to getting a deal is the HDNet Movies fans (I've never watched the channel) getting that channel back that they miss so much.

It could be a possibility for the notice but I'm thinking something on the deals above.

- More HD Starz/Encore, Indieplex HD and RetroPlex HD could all be strong possibilities once TWC/BHN has a new deal with them. I would expect all of these to be in the deal.

It is like with The Weather Channel HD and their month to month deal. I do not expect more HD until a deal is done. Given how it has been on month to month deals for 2-3 years, you would expect a resolution soon and hopefully there will be but we will probably see them off of the month to month deals before we see more HD announced for them.

Those are the big 3 and while they might not happen in this month, there is a chance could fall into place by the end of the year.

My gut is saying Sundance HD and maybe a few other HD channels on that list announced for sometime in June.

We will see Monday morning.

BHNtechXpert are you still interested in hearing about "non new" programs that are recording on accident? Or have we decided that its some sort of guide data error?

I have several of them from different shows sitting on my box now from this past week or so. None of these are new and all of them are set to only record new episodes:

Mythbusters - DISCHD
Dual Survival - DISCHD - 2x (same episode neither new)
Storage Wars - AEHD - 2x (same episode neither new)
American Pickers - HISTHD

So Kevin,what your saying is that these new stb can be used to hook up your internet device ala the way uverse stb.

I have the samsung 3272 and the specs read that it can be used for internet as well but BHN choses to disable the feature.

I wish BHN would enable the 3272 to output the internet so I can connect my ps3/roku to it.In the meantime I have to use ethernet wall plug ins.

@ BHNTechsupport/Gary please put in a request in for me for BHN to enable the WHDVRS stb with moca to output the internet.The feature is there ,it just needs to be enabled in the software.

Anybody here having issues logging in to their cable modem/router that comes with Lightning? I keep trying to access the configuration page by going to 192.168.0.1 and get nothing. I've tried to access it both wirelessly and with a wired connection. I have the Ubee.

no I am saying that the boxes use the DOCSIS channels for communications back to the headend and also don't use the legacy OOB and motorola upstreams to communicate with the headend. These new boxes use the DOCSIS channels to get guide data, use them for the new search in ODN 5.0, and any SDV, Startover, VOD, Lookback, PPV request is send over DOCSIS.

My system is 860MHz with legacy iGuide boxes using the motorola OOB and Aloha return as well as the newer boxes that have Navigator ODN and DOCSIS for headend communications.

My system is 860MHz with legacy iGuide boxes using the motorola OOB and Aloha return as well as the newer boxes that have Navigator ODN and DOCSIS for headend communications.

You are correct however if the box cannot secure a docsis channel back it will fall back on the legacy method. This is relatively new btw....not sure if all regions have this enabled yet and not all boxes.
