Just all of the sudden, we lost like 10 HD channels. Why did they decide to do that then, rather then sooner?
I am guessing you are talking about the channels that leaked through to the QAM tuners of many people. I am not aware of any providers that have not plugged the hole that allowed users to get the HD channels (besides the locals) without a box\\decoder. Those channels were on borrowed time, and Cox just finally plugged the hole. As far as I can remember the ability to get QAM other then locals went away sometime last year. There was a discussion about it in the other Providence HD thread around the time it happened.
If you lost the channels off of you HD box, then call Cox and ask them to send a "hit" to it. You can also unplug it for about 1 minute and plug it back in. Sometimes the boxes do loose connection and need a refresh via signal from Cox or "hard" power cycle. The two channels you listed have been available to me since they went live and I havent noticed any loss of channels that was not "supposed" to happen (ie MOJO).
On a side note, looks like Cox added a second PPVHD channel for this weekends sporintg PPV (Boxing\\UFC). The new channel is 794, I am not sure if this is going to be permanent or not, but I suspect if it is not it will come up again in November when I beleive the next conflict with Boxing\\UFC will happen.
