I don't know how reliable the speed test are- with the RCA I was getting ~20mbps down 1mbps up. The same tests show 10 and 1.
You should be ok if your e2500 has been configured to provide routing/firewall/wifi security for your internal network. Presumably, your motorola has already been provisioned for bridge mode operation. Verify that your e2500 has an external, routable, ip address.

Speedtest - you might want to try the local TWC site and report back: http://speedtest.nyc.rr.com/

Thanks for the reply.
Yes I am pretty sure your right about the Motorola. I don't think it would work unless it was set that way. It was P&P right away no problems. On the other hand who knows what some people can get away with these days. I checked with Cisco they confirmed the e2500 was secure. My network is secure.
I use that TW speed test. My numbers 5 minutes ago were 10.01 and 98. The same +/- when I use Cisco's . The RCA I would get double, 20-25 but the up
has always been around 1. Strange, that's why I question the test itself. I haven't felt any difference, yet.

You were not supposed to be getting Lakers games on the channel to begin with it is a national version of the channel with LA sports games from the 2012 seasons blacked out classic games come through as they are not subject to blackout.

Actually, you wouldn't need to be provisioned in bridge mode for your internal router to work. My internal router was working before I was reconfigured to bridge mode. The external interface was assigned a 192.168.0.xxx address via DHCP by the cable modem. But certain functions such as limited port forwarding (in my case) would not work.

I have found the TWC speed test to be a good general indicator that my speed caps have been provisioned correctly. I currently take a performance hit of ~10 to 15% when benchmarking over wifi through my internal router compared to a direct, hardwired connection to my cable modem (which I haven't attempted to tweak as yet). If you are supposed to get 20Mbps downstream, and you're only seeing 10Mbps, you have a problem.

It's possible the first few games ended up being shown because league pass was on a free preview the first week.

But there's no way games are supposed to be on that channel outside the lakers market - league rules

Well, looks like I am getting about 76 channels clear (of which 15 are HD) but weed out the foreign language, shopping, and c-spans and there's about half-a-dozen worth watching, including the local channels and TBS. I can't complain, beats diddling with an antenna. If it ends one day soon, it ends. No worries.

November 21, 2012 (from NY Daily News)

The previously announced launch of RLTV scheduled for November 28, 2012 will now occur on ch. 191. As a reminder, this service will be part of our Digital service offering. On or about December 27, 2012 we will launch BBC World News on ch. 156 in Manhattan and Mount Vernon and on ch. 126 in Brooklyn and Queens. We will launch BBC World News HD on ch. 698. These services will part of our Digital service offering. Also on that date in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, we will move BBC America from our Digital service offering to our Standard service offering.

Hi All -

I'm having trouble finding out the answer to this question:

do either of the whole house compatible dvr boxes (cysco 8642 / samsung 3272) work with an external hard drive? I'm currently using one with my 8300hd and don't want to lose the extra space. Thanks for any info!

It's nice to see that BBC World News is finally being added. I wonder what will happen to the Pre-Sandy HD sports channels now if they are adding new channels once again.
post #25991 of 26425
a warning to anyone who may have checked out some of the international channels during the free preview period - check you bill - they f*cked up and charged people if you "ordered" during the free week.
post #25992 of 26425
didn't see that but wonder if anyone is seeing a statement credit for the week where we had no service in lower Manhattan?
post #25993 of 26425
We got about a 10% credit for the blackout days on our bill.

BBC World News HD is one that I'm actually jealous about, now that I moved to FIOS. I watch quite a bit of the SD version of the channel which they've had on FIOS since I've been a subscriber, but the channel seems to ignore the fact that some folks are watching it in 4x3 SD and occasionally things like text or peoples' heads get chopped off! (I think this is the only channel I've ever seen that happen on). For me, this has almost (but not quite) filled the void of not having NY1 to watch (which I still miss).

When CNN and other US news channels are running nothing but endless fluff, I can always count on BBC World News to be covering "actual" news (though I could do without some of their sports coverage....).

Leased Access on 79 was suppose to be mapped on 79 and something in the 1800s according to the blue slate that is on between programs but its not.

there's a lot of things that were supposed to happen that haven't.....

another recent example - the spanish BeIn was supposed to be simulcast on 841 (which would make sense considering it's only on the Spanish package) - but its not there

Even worse - they announce a channel - say they added it - have it listed in the website channel lineup - yet they never actually added it...
it's now been 2 years since TWC claimed they added Halogen Network on ch. 188 and Inspiration Network on ch. 189....

The channel lineup on TWC's website is maintained by FYI television. They also provide inaccurate guide listings for fios cable boxes which has been a cause of complaints since day one. FYI sucks big time.

It's not just the lineup thats the problem - the channels were on the announcement page - and even later said "added" (check this thread from about 2 years ago...)

NEW YORK CITY (Dec. 5, 2012) – As a thank you to customers of Time Warner Cable’s most popular Internet service, the company is boosting the maximum download speed for Standard Internet by 50-percent this month, from 10 Mbps to 15 Mbps, for customers throughout its New York City service area. The faster speeds will be also launched to Standard Internet customers in the rest of Time Warner Cable’s service areas this month.

Standard Internet customers will receive the faster speeds automatically this month, but can upgrade immediately by pushing the “Reset” button on their modems, or if it doesn’t have a reset button, by unplugging the power cord from the modem for 10 seconds, plugging it back in and then rebooting their computer.

I saw this boost a long time ago
