I don't search that often. Does anyone else have this? Is this the new cloud based search functionality?

It has been there for about a month now, just kinda hidden in the guide when searching.

Getting the same old, same old, when I try it.

Really? My friend can't see those channels. The TiVo shows them as having no signal. I assumed the reason was that he didn't have a cablecard.

When I contacted TiVo, they said that he needs a cablecard and TA. But I don't think they know anything about how the local TWC is allocating their bandwidth.

Update: This seems like it might be related...?

Yeah, that looks new to me, too...

OK, at first I thought that I was crazy.

Has anyone else noticed that, when there are multiple copies of a show on multiple DVRs, deleting one actually deletes it from multiple DVRs?

Had it happen once right after TWC added the ability to delete a show on a remote DVR, haven't seen it since.

Has anyone in the Charlotte area received one of the Cisco 4742 WH DVR client boxes yet? I'd like to get one, but I don't know if they're available in the area yet.

Will Time Warner be getting BBC 2 anytime soon? I miss my Top Gear UK shows.

Any help and/or suggestions here would be very appreciated ...

I've had the Cisco 8742HDC for a few weeks now, and I can report a lot more good than bad. The contractor that brought it over, told me that they've finally shifted over to Internet Protocol video. Maybe true, maybe not. What do I know? Other than this thing is VERY fast in nearly all aspects.

In fact, the only thing that slows it down even slightly, is when changing between channels with differing resolution. Perfectly understandable. And still very quick.

However, for the first time ... never seen this before ... My 1080i channels (CBS, HBO, and suchlike) have a very dirty habit of displaying as interlaced on my 1080progressive scan HDTV. Sometimes, a few flips between channels will remedy the vibrating horizontal lines ... but sometimes it's a real struggle.

Any idears why, and maybe how to fix it? I know this hardware is relatively new, but I'm happy to try even the wildest of educated guesses.

Thanks for your time!

You should be able to see them on BBCA.

No idea how to fix it other than lock it into 720p, but mine is doing the exact same thing! I believe it's an HDMI handshake issue. My second 8742 is connected to an older DLP TV via component cables and it does not have this issue. As you said, a few channel flips back and forth to a 720p channel will usually resolve the issue.

I would be interested in that info too.

Been having significant amounts of SDV issues since last Thursday night, which is very atypical for me. Signal levels are good both in-band and out of band (forward and return). Issues were occurring with all boxes (8640, 2x 3260 and a 4250)... strange thing was that there would be times when all four boxes were having SDV issues but the WMC7/HDHR Prime (with CableCard and SDV adaptor) combo was still working.

This afternoon I left the office for some lunch and the kitchen 3260 was refusing to tune any SDV channels at all... some with channel not available messages, some with just black screens. Out of frustration I pulled the power on the box... after rebooting it was working absolutely fine.

I have been having this issue for a while now. I have an 8742HDC. I mostly get a blank screen. Going off the channel and coming back to it usually works or just turning the box off and on works. Rarely have I had to reboot the box. Seems to be happening more & more in the past week or so.

All of my ESPN HD channels looked horrible yesterday. Haven't checked today. Terrible blocking and just overall pixelation/compression. I rebooted the box to no avail. Anyone else seeing this?

I've been using one since Aug 2010.

There are over 200 paired InfiniTV4 cards in the Carolinas.

LOL, I was the main contributor to the InfiniTV4 configuration guide. When there's a problem with ICOMS, they come to me.

And Sorry Bob, I just noticed you asked about the usb model. I have the PCI-e version. The Green Button would be the best place to ask.

So how many are paired with the HDHR3-6CC-3x2?

Which..unlike the CETON, will not even scan without a card...grrr....

Slightly less. Which is surprising, considering how short a time it has been on the market., but can't tell if they are 3 Tuners or 1/2 a 6 Tuner.

I'm waiting for the Ceton Q & Echo or one of our un-named DVR's coming. Let's see who has better addons.

I'm not sure the tag line is long enough for all the roles I play. Guru, I guess covers it.
