Hi Guys ... good to have this dedicated Columbia-HD thread. I have been away from this forum for sometime now.
Glad to see WOLO join the HD lineup. But would give my left kidney for Discovery-HD ! Whats happening with Time Warner ? I called them about two months ago and they said that talks were in progress and it would happen soon.
I have both ... the 3100HD box and the 8000 Recorder. The recorder has its own mind ... it records shows I never ask it to.
Microsoft has convinced the world that software bugs are normal and we should live with it. Now this lack of quality control has permeated to other things in our lives
Some of the quirks I have come to anticipate - for instance if you record Show X from 8-9 every friday ... and it so happens that the next friday at the same time slot they happen to have another show ... the recorder will add both shows to the scheduled list for future recordings. I figured this out when I told it to record CBS show "48 Hours Investigates" every Friday and ended up with it recording "Prisidio Med" every Friday at that time on top of "48 hours" which had moved to another time slot. Apparently, whoever programmed this thing did not make the code check if the program name matches before adding it to the schedule. Doh!
On HD picture quality ... I have a well-calibrated Toshiba HDTV ... all HD channels look perfect ... except CBS ... it looks clear ... but has a slight greenish hue. The rest of them look just perfect !
If anyone knows who I should be contacting at TW about Discovery-HD ... preferably someone higher up than the person I dealt with couple of months ago ... I would appreciate a PM.
