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:
Sportsman Channel HD
Fox Deportes HD
Showtime Next HD
Showtime Beyond HD
Showtime Women 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 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?
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.
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.
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.
I love smart men. In other words, I'm attracted to brains like a friggin' zombie. Crap I say
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.
