New York, NY - TWC - Page 857

post #25681 of 26426
I was able to reboot the DVR after other programs had finished recording and 753 was then working.

Frustrating nonetheless!

Interesting new re-design. What cablebox/DVR does TWC use for Whole House HD-DVR?

June 6, 2012

The previously announced cease carriage of MKTV has been postponed.

The previously announced launch of UTV Movies on ch. 565 will now occur on ch. 574.

The previously announced launch of Azteca America on June 6, 2012 will now occur on June 26, 2012.

Starting on June 15, 2012 and ending at mid-night on June 17, 2012 we will provide a free preview of our Showtime services. Customers have the option to request that the free preview be blocked by contacting your local Customer Service center.

On or about June 30, 2012 we will launch Aspire on ch. 171 and Aspire HD on ch. 789. These services will be basic services available only in digital format and viewable with digital cable-compatible equipment such as a digital converter or a digital television (or other device) that includes a QAM tuner.

On or about July 8, 2012 we will launch the following new channels: Star India Plus on ch. 565, Star India One on ch. 566, Star India Gold on ch. 567 and Star India News on ch. 568. These services will be part of our premium service offering.

On or about July 26, 2012 we will be making technical changes to our cable system that may disrupt your ability to watch the following unencrypted (“in-the-clear”) channel on a digital television or other device that includes a QAM tuner (a “ClearQAM device”): WXTV. (Customers using digital cable set-top boxes will not notice any change.) If this occurs, you will need to go into the settings menu on your ClearQAM device and perform a new channel scan in order to resume viewing these channels. We apologize for any inconvenience.

I am a Signature Home customer. I called TWC yesterday and made an appt, and they are coming over Saturday morning. Fingers crossed. Oh, I have Samsung 3272 boxes, two HD-DVRs and one HD player.
Wow, so you have the Samsung 3272 and you are having all the same problems as the 8300 customers?

is there any TWC NYC HD DVR box that is reliable?

What's the latest software version for the Samsung SMT-H3272. I'm running V4.7.6.2 (V211412). I'm seeing errors when trying to record shows. I have it recording Daily Show and Colbert Report at 11PM, the show records but only for 0 seconds. It shows up in the DVR listing, but there is no content. I wonder if it's software related. Is there any way to force an update? The DVR is about a month old, as I "upgraded' from an SA 8300HD.

You guys have a lot of MSG HD feeds.

How many do you have exactly?

Also, have you gotten NHK International HD yet?

2 MSG HD feeds and 2 MSG+ feeds (1 main and 1 alternate each - MSG+ used to be FSNY/Sportschannel)

and yes we got NHK

Yeah NYC and Orlando have a ton of HD channels.

Dallas is just now about to hit 140 sometime this year right now we are at 135 with the add of MLB Strike Zone HD.

We have Azteca America HD announced

and these are to be added:

MTV2 HD
TV Land HD
PAC 12 National HD

which would bring dallas up to 139 HD channels just one shy of 140.
post #25692 of 26426
I believe NYC now has 184 HD channels (not including the On demand selection, since those became much harder to count once they eliminated HD-only ondemand channels)
(TWC will probably claim 6 more since they probably consider the spanish audio versions of the HD HBOs to be separate channels)

We're expecting Aspire HD on 6/30 - that's the only one scheduled for the future.



(I'm still discovering new channels we've gotten the last few weeks.... we also got WLNY HD on 755)

You guys should be getting:

MTV2 HD
TV Land HD

on July 31st along with:

Centric (TWC areas that are missing it)
MTV Hits
MTV Jams

as the carolina's have July 31st as their add date for these channels and I would think that NYC would get them at the same time
post #25694 of 26426
All of us should be getting Pac-12 Network HD around Aug 15.

Berk: We both definitely get a lot of HD and I feel spoiled compared to D****, Dish and FIOS. There really is so much for us to discover.

Thanks for keeping us updated on TWC-NYC.
post #25695 of 26426
I continue to get major pic freeze, audio drops, pixellation issues on YES-HD and SNY HD....it's unbearable, forcing me to go to the SD substitutes. Could it be the 8300HDC box?? Those are really the ONLY two stations I'm having this issue with. mad.gif

I had major issues with NICK HD and one other channel. My tuner was bad. My signal was too hot so they had to use a splitter with appropriate dB loss, *and* my tuner had to be replaced.

Once the box was replaced, no issues.
post #25697 of 26426
Thanks for your reply and feedback. What box did you ultimately get??
post #25698 of 26426
I got SA/Cisco 8642HDC and Samsung 3xxx box (can't remember of the top of my head). In one of the diag pages, I was able to see the FEC (forward error correction) counters incrementing for that channel. Good luck!
post #25699 of 26426
Great! Thank you, Hansang! I'll be making an appointment with TWC when i have time to be home ALL DAY (you know how THAT goes) in July.
post #25700 of 26426

Check your wiring, as that can cause such issues. If the signals are good, then it is a software bug. 

post #25701 of 26426
Ironically, TONIGHT, YES HD has been working flawlessly. eek.gifconfused.gif
post #25702 of 26426
Navigator software updates seem to be spreading around the country this week - don't be surprised if we get something overnight tonight.

Does TWC offer more HD channels than FiOS in Manhattan?
post #25704 of 26426
broadwayblue,

Yes, they do.

With FIOS, you have NFL Network/RedZone, HDNet/HDNet Movies, the crappy .TV channels and some more west coast HBO's and Cinemax's.

However, with TWC NYC, you get a lot more national HD channels and they keep adding while FIOS has gone dry for at least the past year.

FIOS also gives you the pretty good movie channels Epix and Epix 2 that aren't on TWC and have a lot of the more recently released blockbusters plus some solid original content and older stuff that also sometimes appears on MGM-HD as they are both owned by the same folks.

The 2 HDNets + Epix channels outweigh the pain of not having Sundance-HD, BBC-America HD, Ovation-HD, TCM-HD and a couple of the missing Starz & Showtime subchannels for me personally.
post #25706 of 26426
Scott,

That is also true on Epix.
