Wisconsin is getting Get TV on TWC at the end of this month. This is an old classic movie station. Sort of like TCM, but with commercials. Movies! Network is more current.

no I do mean for the first time
VOD is launching on TWC systems in parts of Texas that were upgraded to 860MHz about a decade or longer ago but never got VOD or SDV lol

I have the new Arris 6-tuner which also has 1TB for storage. It has been great not having to worry about conflicts and the increased space

And I just went into the local office to pick up. no issues installing it

There was nothing in today's paper.

I am not expecting much but always good to catch those notices.

Either way, Yimitz will give us a preview tomorrow. It might be the first time in months he let's us know what will be in our notice before we see ours.

Not much news to report.

MTM list: Gol TV, NHL Center Ice, NHL Network, Outdoor Channel & Youtoo.

The agreement with Jewelry Channel expires September 30, and the usual "we may have to cease carriage ..." boilerplate.

On or after October 1, Hallmark Movie Channel will rebrand to Hallmark Movies and Mysteries.

On or after October 18, C-SPAN3 SD/HD will change tiers from Premier to Standard.

That's all she wrote.

Yimitz,

I'm not surprised at all. The possibilities list is slim and most on it are not even serious possibilities but it's good never to miss a notice.

The only news is Jewelry Tv appears to still be on MTM's.

Thanks as always!

Our notice is much like Michigan's

QVC and News 13 are moving to Standard and on or after October 7, I think more of the digital transition kicks in.

Not much happening and it's not a surprise given how bone dry the possibilities list is.

I think we're pretty much done as far as getting anything new for awhile. Besides a few niche channels there's really nothing more to get.

How easy is online chat to use? I want to add EPIX and tried ordering by remote, but it gives me an error.

I used it this weekend to order the Sports Pack. Football season has started, you know... :-) It is very quick and easy. Just have your account number handy.

The live chat is awesome and not a 30 min wait like calling into customer service.

I've got to order Sports Pass for NFL RedZone.

hmm looks like TWC is going to be adding HD Channels in October to areas that are missing some channels such as ShopHQ HD, MTV2 HD, TV Land HD, Fox Deportes HD those are being added in Yuma AZ on October 29th also ShopHQ HD seems to be an nationwide add in October for some reason and even the midwest region is supposed to get it for some reason? lol. NHL Network is moving to Variety Pass on October 1st (where carried) nothing new on new areas getting it added. Wichita Falls is losing a analog channel that is on channel 17 and it is moving to digital only. TV Japan now listed for Wichita Falls TX as well as Dallas and Austin. Starting to think Wichita Falls is somehow tied into the the Dallas cluster for channel distribution.

I am all set! I ordered EPIX, already had Sports Pass and my Sunday food menus are all in order. Let football season commence!!

I hope a deal does get done with the NHL. It would be nice to have that finally off the MTM.

Dallas is apparently getting Jewelry TV duplicated on channel 78 in digital format only on Digital Basic tier I wonder why bother unless they are going to put it on the expanded basic tier digital only lol :P

some other areas are also having Jewelry TV added to a channel below 100.

FamilyNet now has retro programming HD episodes of "Charlie's Angel's" and T.J. Hooker" like NBC Universal used to have.

Just now, I saw a line that RFD-TV will be added to millions of households that carry just FamilyNet. They expect to announce agreements in the coming month.

Not sure if this will effect us but you never know.

Wasn't the Movie Channel supposed to be removed from your channel lineup, September 1st?

I still have it in mine. I really hope BH doesnt charge me an extra $14 dollars without my authorization.

RFD-TV got a deal with AT&T. They had previously only had FamilyNet.

That line across the programming I believe indicated more systems.

The TWC deal is on MTM's and RFD-TV is trying really hard to use the mergers to fight for carriage.

Since BHN does not know what they want to do yet if the TWC-Comcast merger goes through, I doubt a renewal would effect us especially since Gary indicated they don't want to add it outside of the Bakersfield market.

We will see though. After all, not much else to talk about these days with a dried up possibilities list and no channels in serious danger of being dropped.

I think a lot of things are going to hinge on the merger. Sadly at this point there's more questions than answers and we just have to play the waiting game.

I still had TMC as of last week. I, like VGPOP, was concerned that I would be charged since the letter said the subscription would end 9/1. After an hour "chat" with Jermaine of BHN, I gave up and said I would call in. For some reason, he was having to remove Showtime and TMC, and when Showtime was added back to the account the cost was going up to $14 (there was a 3-month intro at $10/month). I told him that was a load of crap and not to make any of the changes. I'm hoping it will work itself out...maybe it's tied to each subscriber's billing cycle?

DVI & Enhanced DVR

Hi Folks!

I currently have a CISCO DVR connected to my "old" HDTV via component (Y,P, B) cables. The TV does not have HDMI connectors, but does have a DVI connector. I ordered the new "enhanced" DVR that can record up to 6 programs at once and I just read that it requires an HDMI connection. The rep did not mention that requirement, so now I am scrambling to find out if will work with a "HDMI to DVI-D" adapter, otherwise I will have to cancel the installation appointment.

Anyone connecting a BH set top box using an HDMI to DVD adapter? Does it work?

Note: The TV is a HITACHI 51SWX20B.

Thanks!
