I am also in Forest Hills. I have been rebooting my cable-box every 3-4 days to see if I get Versus HD. No dice as of this morning. I guess I will start seeing all the new channels tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
My 8300HDC is very flaky whenever I am recording 2 things. If I am recording 2 shows, and I want to watch one of these from the beginning, the 8300HDC will become very unstable. Often, I will have to reboot, losing about 10 minutes, while the box reboots.
So, it appears TWC will attempt to provide an "unlimited" number of HD channels in North Carolina. This will be a result of the switched video deployment.
TWCInsider, or any other insider, what is the status of SDV deployment in NYC?
I have also noticed that the volumn is lower. I did not realize it was part of an update. Very annoying.
Also, channel 24, E!, hasnt worked properly in 3 days. I only hear a continuous beep and no dialogue. Anyone else having this problem??
I am in Forest Hills, Queens.
Yesterday, I had some serious problems with 2 shows I recorded yesterday. Suddenly the screen turned black and I would see random colors on the top of the screen. Either something was flaky with the transmission or my DVR (HDC8300) needa to be replaced.
I had recorded something on the Travel Channel at about 5pm. The last 10 minutes of the recording was unwatchable. Then I recorded Eragon on HBO-HD. I missed about 10 minutes of Eragon while my cable box re-booted. The HDC...
Since getting the Nagivator/Mystro 8300HDC box, none fo the channel guides show the hour:minute mark anymore.
So, if I recorded a 2 hour show, and want to proceed to the 1:13 mark, I have to guesstimate, by looking at the scroll/progress bar, without any hh:mm demarcation.
I sent an email to TWC complaining about the vairous "features" that are no unavailable with the 8300HDC box. Their reply was basically, that I was sh-t out of luck.
WOW. And I thought I had a few good reason to hate the 8300HDC.
I really think this new operating system was not ready to be deployed.
At one point, my 8300HDC stopped buffering, so i could not pause/rewind. I had to do a hard reboot. I have not had any problems (yet) scheduling a series, but you're right that now you cannot specify to record from the HD channel only. I was able to do this in the past.
