Don't know if this was mentioned already but there is a free preview of the NBA League Pass starting tomorrow until Nov. 6th, standard digital 501-510 and HD 1801-1809.

Nayan,

I've already got my NBA League ass but thanks for letting everyone know.

We likely get our monthly notice on Wednesday and I'm expected those TWC SportsNet National channels and maybe even the beIN Sport ones too.

My 3272 Samsung dvr was acting up,it would not record,pause or fast forward no matter how many reboots I gave it.So I went to BHN in avalon pk since they got rid of the UCF office....(grrrr) and swapped it out for a cisco 8742hdc..

Its a nice little box but they need to widen the the tv guide as its in 4x3 aspect which cheapens the look.Also I notice the caller id feature does not show up.

i will play around with it some more to get a feel for it...

Correct,they had signs posted saying that the UCF location closed OCT. 19Th.....I had to drive to Avalon park office...mad.gif

Also,I have a tech coming out wednesday to link the cisco 8742 stb with my other two samsungs stb in my whdvr set up.

I asked the lady at the office when I was there if having two different brands in a whdvr set up will work and she said it should not be a problem...

So then i get home and after a few hours I notice that i'am not seeing any recordings from my other dvr on my playlist.Then I immediately call tech support and they say that indeed a tech has to come out to my home to link the stb so they can communicate with one another....

Peter,

The techs have been screwing up lately.

When I got my DVR a few weeks ago, the guy never called in the Box switch and my adds on were never added. Then, they came back the next day and when the tech transfered the Adds-Ons (Showtime, Movie, Sports Pass and NBA League Pass, the DVR features were gone).

When I chatted online with the help, I then realized I did not have a MPEG4 box for the NBA League Pass HD channels. So, not only was the install screwed, I never had the right box. Luckily, the third time was a charm.

Trust me, the 8742HDC from Cisco is great and way better than the slow first box I got. They just have to hook it right to the others in the household. I've told Gary about this and you should too so he can get word to the appropriate people.

On another note, I hate how BHN got rid of the Altamonte Springs office. Wish they still had it.

Cool! Thanks for the tip.
post #15638 of 18579
Decent happenings this week.

Tomorrow, we get our monthly notice that will contain at least TWC SportsNet National and TWC SportsNet Deportes National SD/HD. We might also get beIN Sport in the notice.

On Thursday, we get HSN HD, QVC HD, Shop NBC HD, a bunch of SD Shopping Channels and Retirement Living. Fox Movie channel is also moving to Digital basic and Fox Business will be on Basic.

Not the best but not a lot to hope for after the big cloud that was lifted when we finally got NFL Network and NFL RedZone.

Why no signal output out of the coax out on the Cisco 8742hdc stb?...

Back in 2006 I had the SA 8300 stb and it had hdmi and a coax output.I was able to record 2 programs on the SA8300 while I switch my tv to its tuner and used it to watch other programs which I thought it was cool.

My samsungs 3272 does not have a coax out, so I could not use my tv's tuner but I just recently got a Cisco 8742 and it has a coax out and I hooked it up like I did with my old Sa8300 hoping I could use my tv's tuner to watch other programming so I could free up the two tuners on my 8742 to record shows...

Then I notice that the coax out is not outputting a signal.

Did BHN disable the coax out on the Cisco 8742hdc?

Avalon Park is way out of the way except for the people that actually live there. With all the open space at Waterford Lakes, you would have thought they could get a good deal on office space there. *sigh*
post #15642 of 18579
I had no idea the UCF one was closed, thankfully you posted this before I decided to drive out there smile.gif

Side note, my DVR decided to record EVERY episode of Storage Wars 2 nights ago while a marathon was going on, whether they were marked as new or not. Funny thing was in the Series Manager it said 0 Scheduled 0 Recorded for that show, but yet the list had several and the guide and many more marked for record. I had to just kill the series for now.

iceturkee: Michigan notice last Thursday.

Peter: Not sure what a coax is. You probably need a tech out there. The operators and techs seem to be having some communication programs as listed above.
post #15644 of 18579
@HdO

The coax in and out are the post on back of the cable box where you connect the cable wire from the wall to the stb and tv...Surely you know this eek.gif.
post #15645 of 18579
Peter,

Ahh gotcha! LOL!

sorry, still trying to figure how a michigan notice is connected to an orlando notice?
post #15647 of 18579
iceturkee,

Because the main divisions have been getting things around the same time over the past year or two.
post #15648 of 18579
Everyone,

We just got our update two days early.smile.gifsmile.gif

HSN HD, QVC HD and ShopNBC HD have all been added (1325-1327). This now puts us at 209 HD Channels.cool.gif

In addition, Retirement Living (203), Gem (215), Liquidation (216) and Shop Zeal 1-7 (217-223) are all also up.

We hardly ever get updates even a few days earlier so this further leads me to believe that they did this to prepare to upload beIN Sport and beIN Sport Deportes possibly as soon as the rumored Nov 1 date when we were supposed to get the above update.

I'm having the same issue. Where are the direct forums located?

Thanks

weird.

So I just rebooted by box and all my saved recordings were erased, yet my season passes stayed in tact.

At least it fixed my channels not showing up and the phantom recordings.

I might not be able to post the notice tomorrow morning. Something big just came up.

Indy star notice for HDOlrando. No beIN sport but they do have mention of TWC sportsnet and TWC Deportes!
post #15653 of 18579
Kevin,

It makes me think beIN Sport will be launched out of the blue sometime in November.

No surprise on TWC SportsNet/Deportes.

Our notice will probably be the same but we shall see.

TVGN the Horse Racing Channel.
post #15657 of 18579
TVG is the horse racing channel, and this is the first sign of it being carried in HD anywhere, not surprising Bright House takes the lead again.

It looks as if Indianapolis has started moving their HD channels into the 1000's.
post #15658 of 18579
Here's a quick summary of the notice from Florida Today.
It starts with the usual list of agreements coming up for renewal, but since I've not been following these I don't know which ones are new.

There is a big table of PBS channel reassignments effective November 15th, for WBCC and WUCF.

Channel 58 Golf channel goes digital only on December 11.
Channel 20 WCJB goes digital only on December 18.

TWC Sportsnet National and National HD, and TWC Deportes National and National HD go SDV on December 11, 2012,
post #15659 of 18579
Thank you George! I figured we'd get the TWC channels soon but I'm surprised no notice of beIN coming. Maybe it'll be one of those channels that just pops up so keep an eye on the lineup folks.
post #15660 of 18579
George,

Thanks for posting that. I had something to attend too this morning.

Everyone: TVGN HD is TV Guide Network I believe.

Nothing new on the month to months.
