Ugggggh, that Please wait... black screen when switching channels on the 4640HDC is annoying. Why the heck do they add that? It takes noticeably longer to change channels compared to the 8300HDC and the audio would mute for a few seconds at random times. Fios can't come soon enough.

HBO Latino HD was moved to SDV

HD Simulcasts of the HBOs were added in the 950s - they're all SDV (even though the counterparts in the 650s are still in their QAM spots at the moment)

Set display output to 1080i only and it will stop. 8300HDC does the same thing if you are set to display multiple output resolutions. Sometimes when they do an update it will change the setting and you need to set it back to 1080i only.

don't think what you may have "heard" has any credibility. if a settlement was reached, both sides would have issued a press release. abc7 was still running ads about it possibly being pulled as recent as last night's 11:00 news.

also additional cost of programming does not impact pricing of cable modem and vice versa. why would a cable modem only customer subsidize a tv only customer and vice versa.

Manhattan, Brooklyn/Queens and Mount Vernon
August 20th, 2010

Time Warner Cable’s agreements with programmers and broadcasters to carry their services and stations routinely expire from time to time. We are usually able to obtain renewals or extensions of such agreements, but in order to comply with applicable regulations, we must inform you when an agreement is about to expire. The following agreements are due to expire soon, and we may be required to cease carriage of one or more of these services/stations in the near future:

AAJ, ABC Family, ABC Family, ABC News Now, HD, BBC America, BBC America HD, Chinese Channel, Chinese Cinema, Disney, Disney HD, Disney XD, Disney XD HD, E!, E! HD, Encore, Encore HD, Encore Action, Encore Drama, Encore Love, Encore Mystery, Encore WAM!, Encore Westerns, ESPN, ESPN HD, ESPN Classic, ESPN Deportes, ESPN News, ESPN News HD, ESPNU, ESPNU HD, ESPN2, ESPN2 HD, LATV, Lifetime, Live Well HD, NHL Network, NHL Network HD, Polski Radio, RTVi, SoapNet, STARZ!, STARZ! HD, Starz Cinema, Starz Comedy, Starz Comedy HD, Starz Edge, Starz Edge HD, Starz in Black, Starz Kids and Family, Starz Kids and Family HD, Style, Style HD, Supercanal, The Arabic Channel, The Korean Channel, TruTV, TV Japan, TV Polonia, Weather Channel, Weather Channel HD, WABC, WABC HD, WPIX, WPIX HD and Zee TV.

In addition, from time to time we make certain changes in the services that we offer in order to better serve our customers. The following changes are planned:

Digital Sports Tier is now known as Time Warner Cable Sports Pass.

The previously scheduled launch of HBO HD (SAP), HBO2 HD (SAP), HBO Signature HD (SAP), HBO Family HD (SAP), HBO Comedy HD (SAP), HBO Zone HD (SAP) and HBO Latino HD occurred on August 18, 2010 instead of September 15, 2010. Please note, HBO HD (SAP) launched on ch. 952, HBO2 HD (SAP) on 953, HBO Signature HD (SAP) on 954, HBO Family HD (SAP) on 955, HBO Comedy HD (SAP) on 956 and HBO Zone HD (SAP) on 957. HBO Latino has been simulcast on channel 958. Each of these services cannot be accessed on CableCARD-equipped Unidirectional Digital Cable Products purchased at retail without additional two-way capable equipment.

Reminder: We plan to launch Wedding Central on or about September 15, 2010. This service will launch on channel 94 instead of 59 and cannot be accessed on CableCARD-equipped Unidirectional Digital Cable Products purchased at retail without additional two-way capable equipment.

On or about October 1, 2010, the provider will rename Fox Sports en Español, Fox Deportes. This change impacts the standard and high definition versions of the channel.

On or about October 10, 2010, the provider will rename Discovery Kids, The Hub. This change impacts the standard and high definition versions of the channel.

The previously announced launch of Sundance Channel HD and Ovation HD will now occur on or about October 20, 2010. Each of these simulcasts cannot be accessed on CableCARD-equipped Unidirectional Digital Cable Products purchased at retail without additional two-way capable equipment.

Well this channel does not exist yet in HD nor has TWC announced it. So I hope they might add it.

I noticed that too.

I thought we already got word a while back that TWC would be adding FOX's new HD stuff whenever they landed (as part of their latest agreement)

Did I miss the upgrade, or is the 3090 pause bug still happening for everyone? Seems the box got a new software version a couple of weeks ago (judging by the diagnostics screen) but the infuriating pause bug is still there.

Yup, still have the bug on my side......getting very annoying. Also noticed switching channels is a lot slower.

I have a request can someone record or screenshot TV Guide HD. I kind of want to see that.

That pause bug was so annoying to me, that I had to drop that box. That bug impacted my viewing at least 5 times a week. I am much happier with the Cisco 8640.

What is HBO-HD (sap)??? It says on ch 953 that its unavailable try again later. I get HBO- HD on ch-652 Will we ever get HBO-SAP???

The bug is tied to the Samsung stack, not the TWC ODN software. It was introduced in the stack versions issued early this year. Stack version 4.3.5.3 is the highest version that has the issue, so look for a version higher than that to (possibly) cure the issue.

I no longer have my 3090 (died completely), but I would love to have it back, with or without the pause bug. The ridiculously slow Cisco 8640 I have now is way more irratating than the Pause bug ever was in the 3090.

UPDATE: I checked my 3260 (non-DVR Samsung) in the kitchen today and the Samsung stack has been recently updated to 4.5.7.3, so that is likely the most up-to-date stack version. Unfortunately I no longer have a 3090 to see if it fixed the Pause lockup bug.

So, the only fix is to get a new box?

HBO (sap) is just HBO automatically set to the SAP setting.... ch 952 is the same freq as ch 651. It's supposed to not be the same and be SDV like the others in the 950s, but for some reason it isnt (also the others aren't set to SAP automatically as of now - seems they're testing - since these had been announced to be added for next month)

Since they're SDV - thats why you may have gotten the unavailable message.

And the rest of the 900s have been the movie channels (in SD) set to SAP for a long long time.

...or wait 'til a new stack version that fixes the bug is released in your system.

The point of my earlier post was that the bug was neither in the ODN software (which is what is being updated in NYC) nor inherent to the box. The bug is in the Samsung stack, and it's a relatively new bug introduced in the last stack update. My post update noted the fact that a new stack version is starting to find its way out, but unfortunately I no longer have a 3090 to be able to tell you whether this latest stack version fixes the bug. I have posted that question to the members of the Charlotte TWC thread to see if I can get some feedback from 3090 users that have been updated. If I get a response I will let you know.
post #23908 of 26426
Is the Cisco 8640 being very slow a common complaint???
I've had this box for over 4 weeks and I don't think this box is slow. In my opinion, it's quite responsive.

Thanks

I was searching for the best thread to discuss QAM channel mappings for TWC in Southern Manhattan.

This thread seems to be discussing everything, most are using set top boxes?

Is there another thread more specific to QAM? Or am I in the right place?

Thanks.

This thread is the only place.

Guess you didn't see this right on this page.

It's for Northern Manhattan, but we should be very similar for the most part (if not 100% the same by now)

I try to update it every time there's a significant addition.
