I've got a service request in to hopefully get someone out to get this all cleared up since I can't seem to keep a strong signal. (Supposed to have come on Saturday while I wasn't working... I'll have to wait and see if they manage to come out sometime while I'm at home now...)
Of course, for me it is probably all local problems, which my neighborhood seems to get a lot of. New subdivision that just started selling their houses probably cut into our feed and degraded our signal quality. (I assume that is how things work with cable signals, if not, please point out my ignorance/mistake!)
Wow. Just had a great technician come out and fix me up. Discovered that the original installer had actually had the line going to my main TV (HD DVR box) going through two splitters outside my house and then I had it going through one inside my house. He was surprised I was able to get HD at all.
Got that fixed for me. Put an external box on the side of my house since the splitters were just dangling previously.
My box had also stopped working for VOD at times which he said was a problem with the Pace boxes that they hadn't got resolved yet. So he gave me a motorolla box. (I of course did verify nothing good was recorded on my box, but forgot to make note of my season passes... doh!)
Anyway, I just thought I would share a good experience with Mediacom since those seem so few and far between.
