When I schedule a recording on my SA8000HD here in Columbia on TWC, I usually say "record all episodes at all times" for shows like CSI or Medium. On the schedule/guide they then show up in red. In the weeks when they are pre-empted by another show, that other show is displayed in red on the schedule/guide, but it does not record. Is this a known glitch or just something wrong in the software in my box?

I won't be able to check in on this thread over the weekend, so is it safe to say that IF we get FoxHD in time for the Super Bowl that it will be on TWC channel 820?

Yeah for Diana and everyone at TWCSC and Raycom for getting the deals done. Unfortunately for me I have to work Sunday until 8pm. I guess I only get the second half in HD. Any way that you can get me out of work Diana?

A tremendous THANK YOU to Diana and the people at TWC who are literally making it happen now that the red tape's been cut. Perhaps there is hope for the suits at Raycom yet!

We have this wonderful little device called an HD DVR that will allow you to record the game in HD and watch it at your convenience.

Yeah, I got the DVR but I would much rather watch it Live Diana.

Like I said before thanks for all your hard work and 820 appears on the guide here as of 1:30pm

Now everyone can shift their attention to complaining about the picture quality of Fox's HD broadcast.

Re: WFXB-DT reception OTA. (georgetown area)

I temporarily put up the old VHF/UHF antenna on the back porch today and did an auto scan. Set finds WPDE-DT, WHMC-DT (3 subchannels), WWAY-DT, WMBP-DT and a bunch of other analog only, but no joy on WFXB-DT. Their SD on channel 43 is watchable but a little noisy (I realize the DT xmtr is in MB while the SD stick is way inland, so I tried manual rotation).

One downside of the Pioneer tuner is that while you can manually add SD channels in whole numbers, if the auto scan doesn't find DT or sub channels, you can't add them yourself. At least I haven't found a way to yet!

Looks like SB will be SD only in our house this year.

Mike

Satori,
I'm not meaning to be rude or anything, and you can keep posting here if you like, but this is a Columbia and surrounding areas forum and none of us get these channels you are mentioning. You may want to find a forum on AVS for myrtle beach or charleston area HD.

Myrtle Beach:

Good luck,

Mark

Mark,

Thank you for the info. I have been following the other two threads as well, but started posting here as there is more and better info as relates to TWC, and in particular more frequent posts from Diana Smith. I do agree my OTA problem with WFXB is more Grand Strand related, so I put a post in the MB thread too.

Charleston is predominantly a Comcast market. We are technically in their DMA, but we are on TWC here, and get a mixed bag of channels. WIS is one of two NBC stations TWC carries here, for example, so I guess I feel some ties to the Columbia thread, but we are kinda in the middle of all three.

Regards,

Mike

Quick question. How do I get the menu to display on my screen for the 8300HD? I want to see what the current signal level is and see what it is after I put a brand new cable from the wall? Thanks

Or lack of HD programming on Fox.

Hopefully Nextel Cup races on Fox will be in HD.

Ahh..newbie..Hate to tell you, but most of FOX's programming is done in
HD..Perhaps a little research of such on this forum would help!

8 Hours worth, and I think there is a football game on this Sunday.

Nextel Cup is going to be HD on Fox, NBC, and TNT. The only races that most likely will not be in HD will be the ones on FX. TNT should have the best video quality, and Fox will most like have the best audio quality.

Congratulations on getting your wish...

My bet is Kevin won't even watch the game..he'll be out on the lake sailing or cruising to Rio in his Learjet for the day..

Anyone else not have ABC-HD? I haven't had it for a while now tonight. That's the only HD Channel that has problems.

Looks fine to us OTA..of course, the ACC game is NOT supposed to be in HD...and is a bit nasty, we're looking into it..

Mark,

I'm a bit confused - you weren't getting the channel at all, or you weren't getting it in HD?
