My DVI definitely works! I even disconnected the component and S-Vid cables, and it still works like a champ. Got mine at 119th St also.
As far as Disc-HD and 1500, I heard the orig plan was to have that up and running already, but they are having a problem with the device that sends out the update to the cable boxes to add the channel!
This is what I was told:
The technical reason:
"Our "BIG" or DNCS machine that sends out all the signals to the boxes is not responding. Today we were going to get a network card to fix the DNCS so our headends can "talk" to the boxes.
Once they can talk again, our addressability department can map, or send the signals, to the box to let it know the channel is available.
From a non-technical person- the machine that talks to the box is broken. Don't know when the fix will happen, just keep checking the channel. If I hear anything new, I will let you know!!! "
So, maybe it will be up soon. She also said that the website will let us know first.
