Where is Starz On Demand HD?
Is the On Demand Portal channel (1890) fully functional?

I wanted these posts to appear here - TWC - New York, New York, but they were posted in the parent container (sorry for Xposting)

I don't have an 1890.

Starz On Demand is on 240 - we never got HD On Demand for some reason.
post #26134 of 26426
TWC and BHN systems should be getting Starz HD On Demand in the coming months thanks to the new Starz deal that was struck at the end of may.

Also expect the Hd Starz you don't have, more HD Encore, IndiePlex HD and RetroPlex HD along with other goodies.

On or about January 27, 2010 In Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens we will launch MTV HD on ch. 720, Comedy Central HD on ch. 745, BET HD on ch. 737 and Spike TV HD on ch. 736.

sorry to bring these posts back from the dead, over the past week i've encountered pixelation and audio stuttering on these channels: 720, 736, and 745. this is a recent development that's gotten progressively worse over the past week. it now stutters about every 2-3 seconds making these channels unwatchable.

tried normal TWC trouble-shooting stuff. checked the connections, reset the box. had a tech out yesterday, he removed a MoCA filter and changed some splitters to send a stronger signal to the box. he recommended that i get a newer samsung DVR box. after about an hour with chat support this morning, they're sending another tech with a samsung box on friday to see if that resolves the issue.

anybody else having trouble with these channels in particular or have suggestions?

location is manhattan in the east 30s

well this time is likely to be different as TWC areas all over the northeast announced on wednesday that on 7/22/13 that they would be adding Encore On Demand and MoviePlex On Demand! So that is likely when they will get a national rollout on TWC systems. TWC has already rolled out Starz Play and Encore Play on PC, and mobile devices so that means that this time it is a different game than the last contract where they only added the main Starz Channel and Encore Channel in HD and other areas got 2 to 5 multiplex HD channels of Starz in HD.

I'm sure I missed it, but is there a reason that the "auto back-up" of 5 seconds or so, that used to occur when you stopped fast forwarding, no longer is happening?
post #26140 of 26426
If I recall, there is a setting for how much you want to "jump back" Maybe that got set to zero?

It's called DVR Compensation and it was disabled in the most recent software update.  There has been no official word on reason behind it... some CSR/FSRs around the country have been stating that it was removed because it was too taxing on box resources, but most among us are not really buying into that, at least with respect to local playback on DVR boxes (cloud/whole-home may be a different story).  There has been some reasonable speculation that it was due to legal issues with TiVO patents.

 

Whatever the reason, reaction has been quite negative, as you might expect.  Best workaround at the moment is to utilize the Replay function ( |<< ) to manually perform the same function (will take a few presses depending on your reaction times).

Oh yeah its definitely happening... thought it would just be analog and then maybe digital later on. There will much screaming and gnashing of teeth come August 20 when those who tap in for free now realize they no longer have a clearQAM signal.... eek.gif

I don't have an 1890.
Well, this On demand Portal allows me to search and filter by CAST ?? (The filter types are Title, All, and Cast)
Interesting. Sorry I can't do screen shots but they are similar to the standard advanced search keyboard, advanced search genre screens.
(8640HDC)

Update: I had to reboot in order to get the box art going.

ODN .6.1.0.5 was downloaded last night to my 8640HDC, but the box is still "running" 6.0.0.19. I'm in the UWS. There appears not to be any improvements in this new release as per the Navigator Thread.

I'm also running 6.0.0.19, although I see entries for ODN (6.1.0.5, 7.1.0.0) and ODNEXT 7.1.0.0.

Update: 6.1.0.5 is now active.

Are you seeing the OD Portal?

Does anyone else have major issues with TBS? I get constant break-ups. Makes watching shows like Family Guy and BBT very difficult.

I called last night and they said they've had no complaints. So are we really the only two?

My 8640HDC in the UWS rebooted again last night and it's now running ODN 6.1.0.5.. No other version listed under "Not Loaded".

That's strange. Maybe you need to force a reboot. What image file are you working off of ?

(I'm running OHT3.0.0.1702_86xxHDC_STD.NOESATA_F.p.csimg (from the OPENCABLE - COMMON DOWNLOAD screen - Pg 27/39)

that is not the software version for Navigator it is what tamanaco mentioned. you likely found the firmware version for your box. I am running ODN 6.0.0_19 right now with ODN 6.1.0_6 waiting to be loaded on a motorola DCX3510M in the Dallas Texas area..

I would have said - kindly be more specific; show me your sceen shots and/or transcribe them, but I won't because you are not on our system, and we are very localized and model-specific..

What image file indication do you get on the diag screens? (See what i mean?) We already established that we are on the same ODN version. I'm also assuming that we are using a single image file along with the loader.

After a reboot, when you get the message "Your TV will be right with You", hit the OK/SEL key to see the ODN loading details - when the countdown drops to (1) you should see 'ODN Parsing Advanced HTM'L and ' ODN Parsing OD Portal HTML', and if you do, you should likely have access to the OD Portal channel.

hmm OK on the DCX3510 when I press power off and ok and go to host diagnostics and then software version is where it says aloader and the ODN 6.0.0_19 number is after aloader along with a long list of numbers before that meaning it is a specific version for Motorola boxes only. Oh and firmware says 12.31 Bedford which means TWC had a special version built for North Texas and named it after one of the cities in the area as Bedford is a City in North Texas.

My area doesn't have the On Demand portal per say on the DCX3200M, DCX3400M and DCX3510M boxes instead if you press the On Demand button you get channel 01 which is a slate saying to access on demand press the A button. The older motorola boxes DCX3200 and DCX3400 and older which are running Rovi Corps iGuide software have On Demand on Channel 1 with a portal will all of the VOD categories in it along with the ON Demand channels in the 500s, 600s, 700s, and 900s in North Texas while the Navigator boxes only have the 500s, 600s, 700s and 900s. I have a DCX3400 and DCX3510M so can access VOD both ways I am just glad that Navigator has all of the viewed VOD tittles able to accessed on one list when pressing the B button and going to currently viewing section or I would scream as when you are in the VOD channels there is no list of what is all currently viewed rentals also the only drawback of Navigator is no folders for dvr recorded shows which iGuide has smile.gif I hope that comes in a future update which it should hopefully ODN 7.0 will have it.

On my 8640HDC the ODN and ALOADER versions are on page 12/39. The header for this page reads "APPLICATION INFORMATION". On this same page you can find future versions that have been downloaded, but not running next to one of the "Not Loaded" lines.

WLIW doesnt have one (plus its channel 21...)
