dotsdavid,

Bright House tends to do this fast.

When a Channel is folding though, they take it off a few hours before it leaves the air. I hate when they did that with FearNet.

looks like TWC is adding a whole buch of HD channels in the Border Corridor of Texas they are finally getting channels like lifetime HD and TBS HD lol! they are getting about 109 HD channels and some of the ones being added are CSPAN3 HD yes only CSPAN3 HD? was CSPAN1 HD, CSPAN2 HD left off by mistake? they are also getting:
FXM HD
E! HD
Esquire HD
IFC HD
Sportsman Channel HD
Fox Deportes HD
Showtime Next HD
Showtime Beyond HD
Showtime Women HD
GSN HD
Bloomberg HD

which I find interesting as Dallas is the only area in Texas to carry most of these wonder if the regional contracts for this area is under the Dallas system as in they get carriage based on what is carried in Dallas? if so that means that Dallas could be getting CSPAN HD's, GSN HD, and FXM HD

I have a question about Brighthouse with Tivo.

I currently have a Tivo Roamio 4 Tuner in main room and 2 Tivo Mini's in bedrooms all over MOCA. Currently do not have cable service so its OTA...which is all I really need......BUT the family has been asking for cable . We really hated the BH DVR and have become hooked on the Tivo and the ability to schedule and record stuff on a single unit (Roamio) and access anything from any location (Roamio and Minis). Access to Amazon, Netflix, etc is great and the UI for Tivo is light years ahead of cable DVRs.

Now my question.....if we were to go back to BH TV service would we be able to keep our existing setup and features(multi room access, 4-tuner, etc). I have not looked into it much but I understand I will need a cable card from BH in the Roamio. Would this impose and limitations on what can be accessed from the Tivo Minis in the other rooms?

Thanks,

With a cablecard & tuning adapter, you won't be able to use any of the on-demand channels. From what I understand, BH will also have to install something to block the MOCA where the BH cable connects at the house.

A few other technical things about how Sling TV will work: It will be a single-stream service, which means only one device will be able to access the stream at any time. If you’re watching on an iPad and your roommate turns it on through the Roku, your stream will be shut down.
Just would not work in my household hehe.

hmm no new HD channels to report for TWC adding other than the Border Corridor finally going full SDV with about 115-130 HD channels in each system after the changes take place soon.

TWC Dallas is supposed to start killing analog on 1/15/15 and Austin/Waco are supposed to start killing analog on 1/20/15.

baby first TV was added to TWC in SD only. doesn't look like the programming is HD anyways as it is full 4:3 screen filled and the videos look to only be 4:3 and SD lol. So Baby First HD could be just and 16:9 HD feed up convert with black bars.

A new possibility seems to be in play for you guys - the newly relaunched Discovery Life Channel, formerly Discovery Fit & Health.

I'm seeing it appear on Cox lineups now since today was the relaunch date. I've seen it on their website for Connecticut and Cleveland so far, so it may be something coming for you guys soon.

Oriolesmagic,

It very well might be.

Sometimes those lineups can be deceiving but with the re-branding, I'd be surprised if Discovery Life does not launch in HD this year as it is their last english-language network that is not in HD unless it already is.

Would be great to see if this holdout get on board although I will never watch it.

It's been very quiet and it looks like nothing major is on the horizon either. The only thing worth noting is the TWC/Comcast deal, which has been held up yet again, due to some missing paperwork. It's still unclear how that will affect us but it's a good idea to keep an eye on it anyway.

Thanks. Pretty sad that Magnolia is really the only choice.

I am in the beginning stages of researching new speakers. I would like to listen to systems in different price ranges (~$750 to ~$1500) and I would also like to listen to higher end speakers, just for comparison. I would hate to rely just on others' reviews when I go to buy a set.

I might be able to help you, are you more wanting music in surround or stereo ? And what preference, rock, jazz acoustic etc. ? If using a sub, that price range is perfect.I was in the same situation a while back, and few of the highly regarded speakers quite sounded what I was looking for, most were too laid back, and took over a year to find the right towers.while auditioning many.dont hesitate to try as many as possible before you make your decision, as your room is not duplicated in any store

I don't want to post too much off topic on this thread so let me ask a Brighthouse question first. I heard that Dish is coming out with a 4k box soon (announced at CES, I think). I guess they must have 4k capability in their satellites already. Does anyone know if BHN is planning anything along those lines? Maybe now that we have ALL the HD channels 4k should be the main topic.

As far as speakers go. My main goal is getting a tonally matched system. My current one is not matched AT ALL! Music in stereo is fine, the main purpose for the system is TV/movie watching though. I have to mount my rear speakers on the ceiling since the back of the room is open to the rest of the house. I have floor standing fronts now but would be willing to use smaller ones.

Our notice comes this week.

If Showtime Familyzone HD, Flix HD and Discovery Life HD are indeed available, we could have some possiblities.

It's also possible we could geet some of those Spanish-Language and/or International Channels that Bakersfield got recently.

Mostly I am curious to see the MTM's. It should be another boring one.

If the audio sync is off on some of my channels, which piece of equipment would be the most likely culprit? Is that the cable box? I can adjust my receiver but that would throw off the channels that are OK.

^ When sync is off, I would expect it to be for all channels and fixable with the AVR. Try rebooting the cable box. If still a problem but only selected channels call BHN. Good luck.

It does seem like it is a BHN issue. If I pause the broadcast for a few seconds, it seems to get better and it definitely doesn't happen on all the channels. Bluray playback is fine. I will check OTA and collect the list of channels for BHN. Thanks!
