I haven't get track of boxes for about a year now, but I went from an 8300HD to an 8640HDC and I haven't had any complaints.

I think there may be some new Samsung boxes as well with alrger HDD's. Dig through this thread (start at end and work backwards): http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=723830

Here's a wet blanket on yesterday's positive NY Post story. Apparently, Sports Business Journal is stating "a deal is not imminent". Also, take a look at the comments below the story. This guy (Pete Daugherty) considers the content of the NY Post article as "not credible".

Don't know about you guys, but I'm getting sick of the ups and downs of this whole situation.

Yeah. It's got me thinking that our bubble from yesterday may (again) be burst. I'm frickin sick of getting my hopes up only to be let down. Frustrated.

I emailed the Sports Business Journal guy directly (re: TWC/NFLN progress). His reply ...

"Let's put it this way...the two sides are talking, which is encouraging. But
they really are no closer than they were at the beginning of last season. Or
the season before that. Or the season before that.
The stalemate could end today if one side or another submits a proposal that
the other side finds acceptable. That's not out of the question: NFL Network
made concessions to get on Mediacom and Charter earlier this summer.
I would say that the two sides have made "progress." But nobody I've
contacted would describe that progress as "substantial."

Optimistic yesterday ... today-- not so much. Crap!!!!!!!!!

I'm glad you posted something my normally stable samsung box started acting strange this week. I didn't notice any update, but the box has been just less stable. Programs freezing, recordings not working, etc.

It is less stable... the most noticeable differences are the addition of x4 FF... the new screen at the end of watching a recording... which oddly looks out of place like it's half off the bottom of the screen... and the screen saver that now appears with a BHN logo after inactivity on an 8300HD box which now looks like what the 8300HDC boxes did.

I noticed that my 8300 has changed. One thing, when pressing the Guide button, would bring up the program menu, one more press and it would go away. Now the second press brings up the Favorites menu, one more again makes it go away. The save/delete/replay option now takes up the bottom screen.

Maybe the only thing that is true from the NYP article is that TWC has conceded to allow NFL Network off the Sports Tier, but is no closer on price, or anything else.

When you have two sides like this at opposing ends, the truth is usually somewhere in the middle of the road.

If they have moved off their sports tier stance, that's progress.

This probably goes up until when those 8 games start but this is frustrating.

I know I would like to have it before they begin showing their Thursday games but even if they come to a decision and it's not added until then I'll just be glad to finally have the darn thing! We've all waited long enough .

I'm a 'hooker' and a knitter. I guess that makes me bi-stitchual :). Crap I say

I was wondering if any of you here have a logitech revue (google tv)? If so, what cable box are you using? My Explorer 4250HDC isn't playing very well with the revue.

A lot of ladies I know are not big on HDTV and it's great that we have two (Nayan) on this thread that are.

That NFL Network news has me anxious. I want it to happen soon.

Please give us an exact prediction date hunch Ms. or Mrs. Turkee.

Make that three ladies. I am a lady too!!!

Maya68 is definitely around and it's great to see ya.

I'm not sure if were ever going to get Boomerang but I suspect that can be worked into the deal the next time the Turner Networks are up for a new deal. This could also be when Tru TV comes off the month to months.

Then again, we are getting a notice this week and you never know if we could unexpectedly get Boomerang although were all hoping for Weather Channel HD.

That would make my day! I always keep my fingers crossed when I see the announcements. Maybe one day Boomerang, maybe one day... *sigh* :-) In the meantime, I am also hoping for more football channels! I am at least grateful that BHN shows the UCF games for those times I can't attend in person.

Maya,

You never know. It will likely be in the front section of the paper Wednesday, Thursday or Friday with the later the most likely.

Besides NFL Network, there is not many more Football channels left to add.

The only ones I can think of are LongHorn Network and MTN which I believe is part-time.

iceturkee,

I did not know that on Mountain.

I think Pentagon could be a possibility for even this week's notice.

We could get a one or two channel update this week but you figure that were probably due for an 8-10 channel HD update by year's end which will likely be a cleanup like the notice we got at the end of April and before that December of last year.

After The Weather Channel and the addition of more Starz HD with the later not feeling likely, were left with a channel list that is mostly a cleanup.

Pentagon probably happens though in an update before the year and I can see Sundance, HSN, QVC and maybe some other things joining it.

We shall see. I'm anxiously awaiting the notice this week.

I can not believe boomerang is not carried in Orlando on Bright House. TWC added boomerang and Cnn International to the North Texas lineup about a little over a month after the TWC/Comcast aquistion deal of Adelphia was completed after Comcast traded the North Texas system with TWC. We got a lot new channels in that update including CNBC world and they swapped some spanish channels out with new ones which we pretty much regained those back this year and some.

It is weird. Just like how we still do not have Weather Channel HD.

We did not have GSN until a little over a year ago either and after we got that, we were one of the first to get the HD version.

iceturkee,

Where on BHN's website are they listing them?

I do not see them in the channel lineups section.

I've got to get my box switched.

Ahh, I see it.

http://brighthouse.com/central-flori...mming/packages

We will see if they pop up Friday. I also wonder if the Team Channels will show up in the guide as well although they are not needed till The NBA Lockout ends.

I can't get the templates via the trick but that's maybe because I need to switch boxes.

On a final note, the notice back in July was wrong on the channel numbers but am glad I got them right.

Everyone,

NESN HD is announced for TWC Kansas City

http://www.timewarnercable.com/Kansa...nelchange.html

I'm going to list it in the possibilities for us.

It's one of 6 sports channels that we have in SD but not HD.

Fuel TV, ESPN Classic, NESN, Fox College Sports (Atlantic, Central, Pacific).

Only Fuel TV and NESN are available in HD with FCS rumored to be on part-time DTV HD.

TWC KC got it in SD before HD so it makes me believe we will get it in the future.
