I didn't see anything about the change you're seeing. I also didn't notice the change - but then I never watch any of those stations.

Hahaha! Good one Larry.

Thank you for the kind words.

The theater chairs do recline and I'd say that the Video and Audio quality easily rival your 'former' movie house! :laugh: Also,...

After a number of months getting it set up, my home theater is almost completely done (although that probably never actually happens :)). It's audio/visually complete, but we just need to rug-wrap...

First thoughts being back with TWC

After being away from TWC and with DirecTV since 2005, I've now been back with TWC for two weeks. My theater-room system isn't set back up yet, so no sound comparison yet. But I've had a chance to...

My TWC experience prior to 2005 was not good, so, that's encouraging. I'm forced to use TWC for TV now due to lack of LOS for DirecTV satellites at my new home (moving in Tuesday!) My biggest...

Thank you for your responses. I appreciate it.





I agree. I already own my own modem and router. Depending on how I like the DVR and satellites, I may go Tivo too.

Yes regarding the woods. My new townhome's back yard is very short and the 50'+ trees are within 75' to 100' of the house - which very definitely block LOS to DirecTV's satellites. Even the roof...
