The TWC TV app got on-demand content. I love it.

I picked up a Samsung SMT-H3362 the other day for one of my sets, it's terrible. Non responsive on many channels or freezes up. What boxes are people trying to get these days? Is HDMI a problem on all the boxes Audio up down doesn't work with the TW remote.

Maybe TWC will bring AJA back at a later date. As a News person (international especially), I would prefer them back. It just seemed odd that they drop the channel to make into AJA while keeping beIn Sport which is owned by the same people.

I can see these channels on my cable box, but not on my Ceton InfiniTV HTPC.

Anyone know how long it takes to get these channels added to the guide information (which I think is received via zap2it)?

The 2 BBC World channels are not displayed on the TWCNYC listings website nor on zap2it website. I emailed zap2it to let them know the omission but I'm not holding my breath for a resolution.

On the plus side, my cable bill has gone down quite a bit this month as I got rid of my TWC DVR and converted over to Ceton InfiniTV.

I just found out that my Condo will bring in Verizon FiOS in the spring. I'm actually quite happy with the cable lineup at TWC. But even with Signature home service, the upload speed of the Internet is too slow. By the way, for those of you having issues with picture quality, chances are that your cables (physical) are not up to spec. When I moved and replaced all my cables to Belden Duobond cables, all my problems went away. Anyway, now that FiOS carries BBC America HD, I can finally make the switch (I have to have my fill of Top Gear! smile.gif

One other thing, I heard from a FiOS user that he can answer the phone using his TV. Perhaps I misheard him, but I'm pretty sure that's what he said. I didn't think I would like the CallerID on the TV, but having gotten used to it, it's a nice feature.

Time Warner Cable's TWC TV is coming to Roku streaming boxes.

http://www.engadget.com/2013/01/07/time-warner-cable-twc-tv-on-roku/

I'm all for this. This sounds like a money saver. I have 3 boxes in my house. Keeping 1, and getting rid of 2 sounds good to me.

I hope local Channels to and in all Time Warner area's including KC.
post #26028 of 26427
I hope they use this opportunity to renegotiate with Starz and bring HD content to Starz On Demand. It's a ridiculous rip-off that they don't already have it.

Has anyone gotten the small DVR listed on this page:

http://www.timewarnercable.com/en/residential-home/tv/equipment.html under "TV Equipment / DVR Box and Service" at the bottom?

I've never seen it before, but it looks a heck of a lot more modern than the giant box sitting in my media center. Wondering if there are any benefits/performance enhancements that go with it. (Or drawbacks, knowing TWC.)

Here is a pic:

It doesn't say what your choices will be. I think it adds up to be more than Premier or the same amount but you get less. rolleyes.gif

Gotta love TWC's website - don't see anything there... poked about, but like searching for a needle in a haystack.

Hope the software update solves some of the biggest bugs - like when you're in the guide and press 'up' or 'down' once, and get the infinite scrolling....

The buffer on my DVR is back to 1 hour on both tuners. This SA box was on the way out all of a sudden it got a second wind, knock wood. I still have a Samsung that stinks big time.
