Anyone have any idea why Cooking HD channel isn't available on Comcast in the Bay Area? Seems like every other HD channel is available.

The funny thing is their shows on-demand are in HD but the channel isn't.

It's not that uncommon, Comcast also doesn't carry Sundance HD but you can view HD versions of their shows via the OnDemand section.

They are two different channels, both owned by the same company.

677 (beIN-HD)
820 (OWN)
I keep checking and I can't find any additional channels that have been converted to H.264 other than the ones above. Seems like this migration from mpeg2 is a total non-event. Anyone have any updates to report?

Did Comcast become perfect? vs. Hello? Anybody left here?

I'm just curious if Comcast has pulled off some kind of miracle.
This is post 15,607 since 1/23/2007.
That's an average of 4.5 posts a day.
Nobody has had anything to say since April 5th.
That was 77 days ago.
So, does that mean Comcast is finally doing something right?
Or, did everybody else cancel their Comcast subscriptions and go away?
Just curious.

Not right but there's no competition for cable as far as broadband right now.

Some areas have fiber but the fiber footprint is so tiny compared to cable that there is effectively no option out there.

I have been using Comcast for internet service for quite some time and it's been working great 100% here. I'm signed up for 250 mb service and I'm getting about 290 mb download.
I got a good deal on their 150 channel DVR package recently and I've been happy with it, too. No complaints here.

I'm getting ready to dump dtv and get the Comcast dbl play. Tired of paying 150 to dtv and 82 to Comcast for Internet. Time to take the x1 plunge. I'm sure quality will be less dtv, but the price is right. Fingers crossed!

I just upgraded my package to X1 Preferred and got a new box looks like an RNG150 but it appears that the firewire port it not active. I was informed by the phone rep that the firewire ports are no longer active and should not be active? Is this true? I had been tuning via mythtv over firewire for recording. Any insight would be helpful. Thanks,

Most peeps will hang out at dslreports. There's more action over there....

The big topic at the moment is about HDR support in the streaming of the Olympics. Comcast had been quoted by various sources that they will stream content encoded in HDR of presumably most of the sessions of the Rio Olympics. However, the HDR capable set top box (Xi5 ?) is still non-existent.

Can whomever just recently signed up for the service inquire if they can get the Xi5 setop box? If it does exist in your market...

Thanks.
