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.

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

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.

That might show a deal for Jewelry TV is close as well.

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.

I would call them or do online chat to make sure you're not getting charged for it.

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!

from the notices that I am seeing for Texas we are getting: BYU TV, ShopHQ HD, here! TV premium 24x7 channel to complement the VOD channel. Would love for the Dallas notice to mention NHL Network being added along with TV Land HD, and MTV2 HD being added :P

Hopefully, it will happen.

May BHN Bakersfield also get NHL Network.

On that notice, the only thing we do not have is Revolt and it does not seem like BHN will be adding it.

I just got the new "enhanced" DVR also. I have my TV (Hitachi 51S500) connected to an audio amp/HDMI switch and that is connected to the TV with an HDMI to DVI adapter cable and it is working good. I'm not sure of the type of adapter but the book shows it as a DVI-HDTV connection. The audio is handled by the audio amp.

I hope this helps.

I have recently noticed that on some channels, the commercials' volume is much louder than on the shows. Has anyone else noticed this issue? We are watching AMC now but I think it is happening on other channels. Has anyone else noticed this?

It's the CALM Act - F.C.C. has been enforcing the 2010 law since 2012. Complain to the FCC and see justice done!

Thanks! Here is the info to file a complaint: http://www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/loud-commercials

They want very specific info about the commercial and the show so I will have to make a note next time I watch that channel.

This may have been covered way down in the forum, but I need to ask - anyone else seeing heavy (i.e. unacceptable) compression, particularly on certain channels? WKMG (1060/6.1) seems to suffer the worst, especially during sports/football, rendering the shows almost unwatchable. Streaming (4 separate sources) looks better!

OK. Watching the Steelers/Panthers game on WESH (1020, 2.1) and this is some of the best HD (other than BD or streaming) I've seen in a while! Sharp details and minimal motion/compression artifacts. Why can't all channels be like that all the time?

Do any of you guys with one of the new Enhanced DVRs want to see the PIP feature enabled on them? Please let say something here, or if you are in this forum here:

https://secure.dslreports.com/forum/...tures~start=60

Even if you don't care yourself about PIP, a number of us with the enhanced DVRs would like it, so maybe place a vote for us.....please? I really miss it during football season but the advantages with the new DVR don't allow me to give it up. Especially with all the new and returning fall shows starting. But I don't see why we can't have both!!

Thanks.
