ROFLMAO! If TWC dropped channels on this basis, most of their basic tier content would be Gone. IMO Ovation didn't have any 'scary' or 'bubba' content to stay on the lineup.
BTW my non-DVR box got rebooted and the new 'middleware' now is both easy to enter and lists a ton of technical details. Not sure if this is new, but you have to invoke the 'manufacturers diagnostic' to get what I think is 'Navigator' info - the words ODN or Navigator don't appear anywhere. On one screen the 'OS' version is listed as 184.108.40.206 - is this ODN?
Unfortunately, the box has reverted to its terrible 2011-2012 behavior, very slow navigation and frequent 'runaways'..
Note to @jcalabria, do my observations match your non-DVR Samsung 3260 STB?
How's it going? Yea, regarding Ovation those are TWC's words..........not mine. Agree with your assessment! Not sure, that 6.2.901 thing sounds like a Middleware code only. Navigator updates for ODN are the newest being ODN 7.0 and for MDN 3.3. In both cases, DVR Compensation returns. Do you have DVR Compensation back? If so, you have either ODN 7 or MDN 3.3. You should also have the ability to alphabetically sort the guide (A-Z.) and the sort options for Date/Time "Sticks." At least that is what I heard.
Newer boxes get a true 16x9 interface with option for those who don't have HD sets or smaller screens the ability to revert back to the 4x3 format. Some areas have expanded search options and a new DVR options screen that simulates TWC's planned "Cloud" environment, which TWC wants to someday move all the boxes to in order to free up memory.
Not a thing from TWC released on the six-tuner DVR's, which I'll bet TWC will only release to Whole Home Subscribers in most markets. Does anyone think rollout will at least begin in 2014? On legacy boxes with version ODN 7 or MDN 3.3, has speed been improved?
Mike what box do you have? Is it still the same as your signature?
