On Tuesday, July 11 Cox cable did something with channels 2-45 (maybe all of the lower channels) that required DVR users to unprogram all of our future recordings on our DVRs. At least the standard DVR (I don't have HD yet). I noticed on the night of the 10th that all of those lower channels had been duplicated in the upper 900's. The next day, those channels in the upper 900's were gone, and I guess they replaced the feed of the original lower channels. Does anyone know what happened? Did they change compression? According to the letter I received from Cox a few days before the switch, they said that my DVR would now have more space, so I'm wondering what they did to the channels to make that happen.
The big problem is now some of the channels are messed up. Channel 13 only comes out of the right speaker. Channel 28 (A&E I think) only comes out of the left speaker. Channel 4 and 7 have very low volumes. The volume change is grating when I go from a low channel 4 to a very loud ESPN on 26.
Has anyone else with COX in Gainesville noticed these things, or would you please check them out and see if you have these same problems with 13 and 28 especially. I've tested a few friends TVs and they also have this problem. If it is a citywide problem, I'd like to let them know. Although, if it is, I don't know how one of their engineers wouldn't know by now.
