Going to try using google docs to update the spreadsheet from now on.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?key=0At0iKcmGbFx8dG14UUJWZk1DTDllRjdjbm0talNzcGc&output=xls

Let me know if this is good or bad.

That is much better than before. Now I noticed twc decided to put two HDsports channels in one QAM alone with two SD ones. The thing is the same channels look compressed as they were before when they were in the 3/1 QAM.I dont see an improvement in picture quality.

I'm sure it has to do with how they are receiving it.

The past few days i keep loosing the picture & sound on my cable box.
The only way to fix it is to reboot the box which takes a few minutes.
anyone else experience this also?
I think it might be related to their new software release since this has never happened before.
I have the Cisco DVR 8640

Thanks. It looks good.

Are you also planning to provide your usual simplified list of all the current HD channels? It's very useful and easier to use than what TWC provides, especially since the list on TWC's website is inaccurate (Ovation HD is shown as being on channel 725) and their PDF version hasn't been updated with the latest channel changes.

Thanks for the HD channel list, Berk. I read that Epix will soon be added.

Berk32, good job as always on HD list and spreadsheet. The Time Warner Cable national lineup can't come soon enough to NYC. Right now it's a complete mess.

On or about March 4, 2014 in Manhattan we will launch KCTV on ch. 533. KCTV will be part of Digital Television service offering.

On that date in Brooklyn and Queens, KCTV will change from our debb service offering to our Digital Television service offering

Where is epix?
post #26352 of 26427
We were hoping your notice would have something on a national rollout date for EPIX.

Bummer.

This is my TVFool report.  I want to know what type of antenna I would need to pick up more stations (amplified im guessing?) and what is a good cheap one?  I want some major channels so I can get good free TV.  I have an Insignia 19" HDTV.   I was recommended to put it here from another thread.  The guy said I am closer to Philly but have line of sight to NYC transmitters.  What antenna should I get so I can get some free TV from NYC?

You should try the NYC OTA thread - this is the TWC thread

My service tier includes the Encore channels.

When they added the Encore On-Demand service it was working fine.

For the past week whenever I try to access Encore On-Demand the channel works for about five seconds then I get the following message:

"To receive this channel, call Customer Care at (718) 358-0900"


I called the number and they now claim that it is only available when you subscribe to TWC Movie Pass.

Can anyone confirm for me that users who get Encore (But are not getting it as part of the TWC Movie Pass) have access to Encore On-Demand.

Thanks in advance...

It sounds like EPIX will be coming in late March

"Epix’s CEO Mark Greenberg got the night started and told us how excited he is that Epix will soon be on Time Warner Cable in about 60 days on both coasts."

Speaking of the TWC Movie Pass, does anyone know why the aspect ratio on Fox Movie Channel (or FXM as it's now called) is so small. All the standard ratio movies are severely windowboxed and the widescreen films are even worse. Since this channel is in standard def, the picture on a widescreen
tv is so small that it's barely watchable. Pretty much makes the channel useless. Any thoughts?

standard windowboxed effect.

The channel is broadcast in HD - just not available on our system (maybe on twctv.com)

I guess they still show the movies in Original Aspect Ratio - and this is the result.

The alternative is chopping off the sides - which many channels have done over the years.

Or you could just use the zoom feature on your tv.


Right now a 1953 movie is on and its 4:3 as you would expect

It has always been listed under TWC Movie Pass (Along with many other channels such as AMC).

I have Encore and it is listed on my bill as a Premium channel (I do not have TWC Movie Pass).

I have always received the following channels listed except for Fearnet, TWC Movie Pass On-Demand and Disney Family Movies On-Demand.





When Encore On-Demand was added last month it was working fine until last week.

Now they are trying to tell me I am not authorized to get Encore On-Demand unless I get TWC Movie Pass.

That makes no sense ...

Encore doesn't exist anymore as its own package - you have a grandfathered plan.

You could be better off dropping it and adding Movie Pass.

Thanks for the reply Berk32,

That's what I figured and you are correct as the cost to include TWC Movie Pass would be minimal.

I just recently negotiated a reduced rate for a year so I do not want to make any changes for now.

I will deal with it once my price break is over.

Movin On Up -

TWC's 23rd street outlet has moved to 43 West 23rd St, and will be open for business starting tomorrow - Monday, February 10th. (That's just across the street from Home Depot).

They have ample stock of the (ARRIS) Motorola DCX 3510-M and the Cisco 8742HDC, both of which are available to all customers (signature service is no longer a requirement)

1. Anyone happen to know what the situation might be at the Brooklyn store these days?

2. Of the two models above, which would be preferred?

Have been dying to replace my old 8300HDC's for some time, but after several failed attempts to trade up to something better more than a year ago, I settled down into bitter passive aggressive resignation. I just don't have the 2-3 hours to spend on failed attempts.

It would be great to move on up in the world.

I would go with the ARRIS (Motorola DCX3510-M) very stable box not to mention I have one here on the Dallas system and it seems to work very well. It is a lot smaller than the Samsung boxes lol! Oh and not to mention TWC is going to rollout Motorola IP805-M boxes this year in NYC and LA that have 6 tuners and a lot more! smile.gif
