Okay, zap2it, who does the guide for Windows Media Center, shows two channel listings on their web site for Lenoir, which is where my feed is coming from. One is "Digital (Lenoir)" and the other is "Digital Rebuild (Lenoir)". The "Digital Rebuild (Lenoir)" is the correct one. As soon as the wife finishes watching Steve Harvey, I'm going to going into Media Center setup and see if "Digital Rebuild" is an option.

Nope, the new lineup is not available in the TV Signal Setup. I've contacted zap2it about the problem. Maybe it won't take too long for them to fix it.

Last night I checked again and now the new lineup is showing up as an option, along with the old lineup, in Media Center TV Signal setup. Better late than never.

HD Auto Tune is being rolled out in the Hickory area. This user-selectable feature, when activated, will cause HD-capable cable boxes to tune to the HD version of a channel, subject to channel availability and appropriate information being put into the guide data. HD Auto Tune is active on HD-capable DVRs that have iGuide version 79.57-R29.6.r-5.


In the the Main Menu, highlight Setup, then press OK/SELECT on your remote.
In the the Main Menu, highlight Setup, then press OK/SELECT on your remote.

In the Setup menu, highlight Guide Setup, then press OK.
In the Setup menu, highlight Guide Setup, then press OK.

in Guide Setup, highlight the the the text "Yes" or "No" next to Tune for HDTV. then press the < or > buttons to select what you want.

Yes=HD Auto Tune activated, selecting an SD channel number will tune to the HD version of the channel
Yes=HD Auto Tune activated

No=HD Auto Tune off, selecting an SD channel number will tune to the SD version of the channel
No=HD Auto Tune off, selecting an SD channel number will tune to the SD version of the channel

In those situations when HD Auto Tune doesn't work for specific channels that are in both HD and SD, you can always tune to the HD channel number directly.

They activated HD Auto Tune in Boone as well. I have Basic service and for some reason, WUNE on channel 13 still shows the SD version. All of the other HD locals work properly along with the other channels I subscribe to.

(UPDATE: MERGER DEAD) Charter and Comcast reach agreement on divestitures

UPDATE, April 24, 2015: The Comcast-Time Warner merger is now dead. No swaps of systems to or from Charter will take place.

Comcast to acquire most of Charter's North Carolina systems

Charter Communications and Comcast announced a three-step deal involving some current Charter, Time Warner Cable, and Comcast systems, subject to a successful closure of the Time Warner-Comcast merger.

According to a press release (Charter, Comcast) and a news item at DSLReports the agreement includes the following:

Comcast will sell to Charter for cash current Time Warner systems serving approximately 1.4 million subscribers;

Charter will swap systems serving approximately 1.6 million subscribers in exchange for current Time Warner systems serving approximately the same number of subscribers;

Certain current Comcast systems, serving about 2.5 million subscribers will be spun off into a separate company ("SpinCo") which will be 67% owned by Comcast shareholders, but operated by 33% owner "New Charter", a new holding company which will also own Charter Communications, and in which Comcast shareholders will have a 13% ownership interest. Comcast will have no ownership interest in SpinCo and will have no management or operational role whatsoever in the new company.

The above transactions will increase Charter's footprint from 4.4 million subscribers to 5.7 million, plus management of the SpinCo systems.

According to the DSLReports article:

The Comcast systems to be sold or traded to Charter are located in Wisconsin, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana and Alabama;

The systems Charter is trading to Comcast are located in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, California, Texas, Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington, Maryland, and some areas in other states which are adjacent to current Time Warner and Comcast systems which will be part of the post-merger Comcast.

The Comcast systems to be spun off into SpinCo are located in Indiana, Minnesota, Michigan, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and Alabama.

An investor presentation is available here: http://phx.corporate-ir.net/External...F8VHlwZT0z&t=1

According to a map on page 10 of the investor presentation, Charter will still own systems in the Greenville-Spartanburg-Asheville DMA, while Charter systems in the remainder of the Carolinas, including the Boone and Hickory areas, will become Comcast systems.


Dark blue - Current Charter systems remaining with Charter
Orange - Current Comcast/Time Warner systems to be spun off into a new company, to be managed by Charter.

CSS is being removed from Charter's systems on May 29, due to Comcast's decision to shut down the network.

This has nothing to do with the Comcast-Charter-Time Warner Cable deals, but with the startup of the SEC Network and the resulting loss of CSS's highest-rated and most lucrative programming, leaving CSS's survival highly uncertain were it to go on.

A number of bloggers broke the story in March, including Rodney Ho of ajc.com:

Charter is rolling out Motorola/Arris firmware 34.05 and iGuide 79.59 - R29.6-1.r-1 to HD/DVR boxes in the area.

iGuide:

The occasional slowdowns during use as well as the near-lockup that has occurred from 3-5am (4-6am during DST) have been corrected and no longer occur.


General:

The front panel power button LED on the DCX3510-M now lights when the box is on. This LED lights up even when the Front Panel Brightness setting is "Off," in which case this LED is set to the low-brightness setting.


User Menu:

"Stretched Graphics" mode: on-screen graphics generated by the box can now be stretched to fill the full width of the screen (while leaving the program content unchanged) over component and HDMI outputs in 480p, 720p, and 1080i/p modes. This feature is accessed by accessing the User Menu (press MENU on the remote while the box is powered off), then pressing up/down arrows to "Stretched Graphics." Use left or right arrow buttons to select "Disabled" ("SGdS" on front panel) or "Enabled" ("SGEn" on front panel).

The pictures below are mockups, but accurately show the effect of stretched graphics.
Without stretch:


With stretch:


There is a new "Open Source Licenses" section. This contains the text of the licenses under which open-source components of the Motorola firmware are distributed, as well as information on how to obtain the source code of those components.

The HDMI/DVI Mode setting options in the "Additional HDMI Settings" section now read "HDMI-USER" and "DVI-USER."

The "Additional Closed Caption Settings" section now previews the closed caption settings at the bottom of the screen.


Diagnostics:

The front panel now alternates between the error code and the country code ("USA" or "CAn") of the box while in the "General Status" (d01) diagnostic.

The "Inband Status" (d04) diagnostic now includes error rate information and block and bit error count information for each tuner, and each tuner now has its own status page.

The "Audio/Video Status" (d10) diagnostic now includes 3D mode and format information for the current tuner.

The "Interface / Port Status" (d11) diagnostic now indicates whether a TV connected to the box by HDMI or DVI can support the 576i/p formats, and also indicates the status of the component jacks, which can now be enabled or disabled by the cable operator.

The Device ID indication in "Hard Drive Status" (d13) now displays the drive serial number correctly.

It looks like Sportsman Channel has won a repreive (at least for now), but UP and World Fishing Network have been removed from the lineup.

Here's something that don't happen everyday. Around 5am Friday on the Boone system the HD feed of WCCB was completely out, but when it auto-tuned to the SD feed it was showing Fox 8 WGHP from High Point! By early afternoon, WCCB HD was back on but the SD was still WGHP until they fixed it around 2pm.

Probably Charter lost their feed from WCCB. And perhaps WGHP was the back up channel from the days when both stations were previously FOX affiliates. But I wonder if Charter receives WCCB by antenna, satellite or fiber?

I believe Charter gets its local stations by antenna. There was something which came up in this thread a while back where UNC-TV offered to pay for the construction of a fiber-optic link from WUNE to the Hickory headend facility, but Charter declined the offer.

Probably NOT, especially since there were no WCCB outages and Charter receives WCCB via antenna.

What I meant was there was probably some sort of technical glitch on Charter's end, whatever the case may be. And I thought maybe they got the feed from an antenna, but was not sure.

I first wondered if there was an outage on your end, but then I checked the OTA feed and it was still working. Also, Me-TV and Antenna TV were still working through Charter, so I figured it was just a major glitch on their end.

I don't know when it started, but as of 9:20 PM, we've lost most, but not all, of our channels. They're out on both our HTPC and cable box. On the WMC HTPC, it says "Subscription required". On the cable box, it says "This channel will be available shortly" or something like that. Thanks.

Charter cable TV service was down throughout Western NC and Upstate SC last night. Which is why it is a good idea to have an antenna as a back up for local and regional channels.
