Mrboss, did you have a chance to check your TV today? Hoping for an outside chance we might have new HD channels although I am not holding my breath.
post #9122 of 9316

post #9123 of 9316

Thanks...

Hmmm...So you want the later showtime??? Is the earlier one conflicting with some other recording or do you only want one recording of an episode not two... If so, just set the recording option to "New episodes Only" and you will get only the showtime when the new episode is aired FIRST, ie the later 11pm show will not get recorded as well...

I had to get the new little digital adapters for my two tv's without a comcast box. Extra equipment in the kids rooms and no more qam stations. What a downgrade. If you want your locals in hd, pony up the money to comcast or go ota

Tivo has lowered their monthly cost, so I am considering getting rid of my SA DVR. I seem to recall that it requires a card from Comcast and that there is no charge from Comcast for that. Is that correct? Does Tivo work nicely on Comcast? I used to have an SD Tivo and loved it.
post #9128 of 9316
Does anyone know how much the cost is for a Comcast cable card?
post #9129 of 9316
Has anyone in Boca, Delray or Boynton heard when we might be getting the upgrade? This is getting ridiculous already

Guys...I'm new to the local HD thing.

I need the channel above. I currently have to pay about $80 a month just to get the right tier (and that is after getting a deal after pretending to cancel), HD, gear rental etc via directv.

So what do I need to get this channel? And pref Fox Soccer + too.

I have a PS3, Roku and Google TV. I have 2 HDTV's and one HD 90 inch projector.

Any advice would be appreciated! I don't have an anenae etc, and I live in Port St Lucie Florida 34953. I am eyeing up the online version fox soccer to go but I could not get the video to run on Google TV.

Anyone know when we are going to get new hd channels in boynton beach. In the beginning of April comcast upgraded HSI an now have faster speeds. So I am thinking the channels will be coming real soon.

MrBoss:

I actually had someone from the corporate office in WPB call me back regarding this. I am in West Boca and like you have been patiently waiting. What he told me is they are a few weeks away (spoke with him last week) and that it should be no longer than 6 weeks before it is finished. He said I would be "very happy" with the new amount of HD channels that will be added.

I am not holding my breath but it was what he told me and it wasn't a random CSR in another state he is local and seemed to know what was going on in Palm Beach County.

I use to live downtown FTL and it was upgraded a while back due to being on the different system.

Anyways now I live in east Boca and just yesterday they stuck fliers in our doors stating that due to our HOA agreement with Comcast blah blah blah they will be onsite nextweek at the clubhouse to give out the new digital boxes as the standard channels will be going digital.

THis is great news as I was missing stuff from living in FTL. My comcast leased modem actually just crapped the bed last night so I ordered a nice new Motorola sb6121 with DOCSIS 3.0. Hopefully my speeds improve as the old modem was so old and might not even have been docsis 2.0 compatible.

Understand that the digital boxes that they're going to give out are likely going to be the ones that simply replace the "direct to TV" analog connection. I got those boxes, and while I did get extra channels, all the QAM HD locals that I was getting over the base cable are no longer there, so I don't think you'll have any HD at all with those digital boxes.

Just a suspicion, but let us know what you do get.

Great news! Thanks so much for letting us know.
post #9137 of 9316
np MVPinBoynton.
post #9138 of 9316
Will do...thanks for the info!!! Long overdue but better late than never.
post #9139 of 9316
Got home late all excited for new HD channels...then NOTHING!!!!

Apparently West Boca will be the last to get the upgrade... will let you know when we get ours.
post #9140 of 9316
LRZNole, Sorry to hear that. Woke up this morning an all the new channels were there probably coming soon your way.
post #9141 of 9316
I got another letter a day or so ago with a rough date for Boca being "On or around 5/01/12". That is when they are reclaiming the old stuff and should be sending out the new channels.
post #9142 of 9316
I was told they do the reclaim the analog channels and add the new HD at the same time more or less so lets hope for next Tuesday.
post #9143 of 9316
Still have the old stuff here today. Let's see what tomorrow brings.
post #9144 of 9316
I have a lot of new channels. Does anyone know where I can get a listing of them with their full names, so I can tell what they are? I haven't heard of some of them.
post #9145 of 9316
Did you get them today?
post #9146 of 9316
I got them last week after MrBoss alerted us about it; otherwise I might not even noticed them for a while. I rarely look above 451. Now there are many channels up there.
post #9147 of 9316
I think they may have completed the upgrade for the Boca area. Our office has cable and it now says on certain channels that the upgrade is completed and you need the adapter.

Now hopefully when I get home I will find all the new HD channels

But I am not holding my breath.
post #9148 of 9316
Nothing in West Boca where I live and I don't believe they reclaimed the analog channels since I plugged the cable directly into the TV and still was able to get up to Channel 67. Maybe they did the reclamation for only east Boca? Very frustrating.
post #9149 of 9316
Yeah, I'm at Powerline and Glades and I still have all the stations up to 67. But then again, I don't want them to go away, since I only have basic cable as a backup, and the digital boxes they give you won't pass thru HD locals.
post #9150 of 9316
I would just like to get the DVR service working again. Come on Comcast, get it fixed!
