post #16291 of 18584
For those that still have some annoying issues with your DVR's Navigator software even after the update to ODN 6, I've posted a collection of my issues and ideas for improvements to the BHN forum at DSL Reports that maybe some of you can add to and hopefully the information will be passed on in a more organized fashion. I frankly think the programmers must not have a clue of some of the issues remaining since they never get fixed and we don't have direct contact with them. Most of my issues you've likely heard me mention before, but they're still around, so….

I still have the time issue (8 seconds to be exact). Most of the time I can get away with setting it for a minute over but it really sucks on lookback, especially if you watch a 10 p.m. program and there's not one for 10:30. I miss punchlines most of the time. I gave up b!tching about it awhile ago but yes it's still there. It's more annoying than... biggrin.gif.
post #16293 of 18584
I think the time issue is not you're problem. My clock is within 2 seconds.

I think the issue you have is due to 2 things.

• Networks not being able to keep their shows within the proscribed time slot.

• There's a couple of seconds gap between a recording stopping and the next one starting, so that's always dropped.

Not much you can do about those.
post #16294 of 18584
Sadly that's true Kevin. I did read what you posted over there though and I agree with you on many issues, especially scheduling conflicts. I still have those myself and I used to fix them by recording late at night but since they like to reboot late at night now that throws a wrench into things. Thank goodness most things I can catch on-demand.
post #16295 of 18584
I think if you've been updated to ODN 6, the Mon / Fri restarts are over. Mine did not get restarted this week on Monday or this morning.

I just make sure I only resolve my conflicts the day of the recordings only. Doesn't really help if you're gone for a week. Who knows what could happen during that time.
post #16296 of 18584
Mine was restarted last night as I got off work early, crashed and my box was off when I woke up. What I don't understand is why the need to reboot in the first place.
post #16297 of 18584
…but do you have ODN 6 yet?

I think the restarts are due to highly overcompensating for a memory leak issue. With ODN 5.2, if you ran your box for 2-3 weeks, it was start running out of memory and everything would slow down. I was manually restarting every week or 2 until they started restarting for me. Twice a week seemed unecesssary, but I guess that guaranteed people wouldn't see the slow down.

Just my guess.
post #16298 of 18584
Mine reboots 3x a week and no I don't have OND 6 yet. It's rolling out now though so hopefully it'll fix the rebooting issue in a couple weeks when we get it.
post #16299 of 18584
Just to report for Floridians with BHN,

Yes Navigator ODN 6.0 fixes the 30 day slowdown bug. There were some divisions that were rebooting the boxes at monthly to bi-monthly intervals with ODN 5.2.09. to compensate for memory leaks. No need to do that anymore with version 6. ODN 6 is very good and stable. You also get the ability to press the Guide Button twice and it adds Subscribed Channels to the ways in which customers can filter the Time Grid Channels.

What time issue and why didn't you tell me about it smile.gif
post #16302 of 18584
I need to correct a few things circulating around the forum here.


1) Correct - ODN 6 is being slowly pushed to boxes region by region. I will update you when this is complete.

2) This revision does address several issues which I will discuss at a later time upon completion.

3) There are several discussions about what it does address and does not as it applies to other cable systems with an inference that it applies to BHN. This information should not be assumed as correct. I will discuss this at a later time and official BHN related information will come from me. There are no other users here authorized to give such information on behalf of BHN.


Those of you with Tuning Adapters will notice an update being pushed out now (again slowly). I'll have more on this shortly but this should make you Tivo folks happy smile.gif

We do not have GAC in Michigan currently. Per Wikipedia, there is no HD version.

Anytime a channel is moved to SDV the proper public notice will be posted to allow those most impacted by the change time to take appropriate steps to ensure continued viewing.

Shut the freeloaders down, IMO. Give the rest of us more HD. However, it's not like having analog channels has hurt BrightHouse any, they have well more HD than anyone else. Heavy use of SDV and MPEG-4 (which is being used by Cox) are good enough to avoid going all-digital, but I absolutely see the benefits. There is no reason analog signals should exist in 2013.

My cable system has 78 HD channels and 77 analog channels.



I like telling people who complain about this to switch to DirecTV, Dish, U-Verse or FiOS. See what you get without a box from any of them.

Not with us they don't smile.gif Internet only customers have video trapped out at the tap...

I'm missing some endings again but it's only on a couple channels, History being the biggest offender. If it was every channel then I would have told you, but I think the issue is with them as all the others are fine so I just set the DVR for a minute over. A minor annoyance but no biggie smile.gif.

Okay so it isn't the box time then....had me worried there for a second.

post #16308 of 18584
We have some good things to come possibly smile.gif

Looks like TWC has gotten some deals reupped or the programmers are in good standing with TWC and believe that they will come through on contract negotiations

Looks like TWC might be giving systems more HD channels to make everyone have similar channels!

looks like there might have been a deal with Fox after all smile.gif and maybe even Univision as I don't think TWC had a deal to launch the National version of Unvision in HD just O&O OTA affiliates.

Looks like GSN HD is addable again smile.gif

Hmm what are the odds that the Midwest and Texas systems get more HD on the 26th of June smile.gif I think highly likely as TWC has been making SDV bandwidth available to handle more SDV channels smile.gif

More HD is always good! Thanks for posting that Kevin smile.gif.
post #16310 of 18584
Kevin,

It does appear CBS Sports Network is now on MTM's.

We might start seeing Showtime, TMC, Flix and G4 (Esquire). Those Showtime channels will make it look even longer. The app everyone wants could maybe speed up a Showtime deal or even the CBS Sports Network which seems to be in more danger based on the warning could help speed up a deal.

The key is getting The Starz/Encore deals, NBC/Comcast Channels renewed to get Chiller and IFC/WE done in case it's holding up Sundance.

All the holes though seem so much smaller ever since we got NFL Network last year.
post #16311 of 18584
Just a reminder, today is the day some folks lose Speed (which my son forgot that I told him last month. Gotta love teens rolleyes.gif ). I think the notice also said to rescan today so we'll be doing that as well.

I did some digging and found that Univision last reupped with TWC in 2009 so they must have struck a new deal as TWC is now launching Univision East National Feed in HD on cable systems that do not have a local OTA feed available smile.gif So Univision tlnovelas and Univision Deportes could be in the fold smile.gif Also Galavision HD is launching on systems that did not have it yet.

Everyone deserves to be as spoiled as we are with HD programming smile.gif. Hopefully there will be a lot coming to those areas soon.
post #16314 of 18584
None of that is happing TWCKC because latest notice has same old stuff meaning the Sports Channels that haven't been added and COZI TV channel move that happened. They have done that. One addition for both is Bounce TV sometime this year.

The next notice comes out next week so we might see stuff happening for Kansas City but it is not going to be announced until next week likely if it is planned for June as TWC has already reallocated more QAM space to SDV in Kansas City to allow for more HD channels smile.gif .
post #16316 of 18584
Were about two weeks away from ours and unless a carriage deal is re-upped, were either looking at Sports and/or Pivot for the 3rd quarter,

I dropped Movie Pass for The HD Pak.

Liking the selection of Smithsonian, NBC Universal and MGM Movies.
post #16317 of 18584
Oh nice! I will probably add something like that after Game of Thrones is over for the season, as HBO is killing me and that's really the only thing I watch on it. I miss Smithsonian myself and the Roku app for it sucks frown.gif. Here's hoping we get some kind of deal worked out so we can get something besides sports smile.gif.

Check out BrightHouse's new addition to my front yard:

http://i.imgur.com/lFH2bDz.jpg?2

Not the most attractive thing in the world, but does this mean we could get fiber from BH in Orlando? Side note, they cut the phone lines when installing it, didn't bother to fix or tell anyone though.
post #16319 of 18584
Nayan,

I do not see myself getting HBO again as I cannot justify paying another $15-$20 just for True Blood and Real Sports. I might also consider The Newsroom but it's not enough with Cable producing all of these great dramas.

This Fall, I'll get Showtime again for Homeland and Sports Pass for NFL RedZone.

It is definitely best to do the adds-on seasonally.

that looks like a node pedestal and in my area that style of pedestal has nodes in it is there a grey box near that says alpha or is just a grey box near the pedestal or telephone poles nearby?
