    About as good as your cable company DVR. the difference is the tuning resolver will come out soon enough and you dvr will still be junk.

    I tried cold starting my Tivo HD to see if the Disney Hd would come back and it didn't. I wonder if this problem has something to do with the cable card being a M-Card?

    Hello all,

    I've been reading this thread for awhile but have never posted. I have tried numerous attempts to get information from Brighthouse support but they usually do not even know what the adapter is. Finally I decided to go straight to the top and emailed the President of BH CFL.

    Here is his response:

    Thanks for your note Dan. The adapter just began testing in our lab and we hope to have it out by year end, assuming all goes well. I'll be sure you are on the list to get notice of it's availability. Also, we'll get some information to our front line people so they can better answer these questions.

    I am copying our VP of Customer Care, Bill Sievers to ensure he is in the loop on these issues.

    Thank you for taking the time to do this.
    I will call in a week or two to see if the CSRs got the memo and make sure I am on the list as well.

    Hi guys... another update.

    On Friday I received the following email from my VP contact at BHN:

    So, we're still waiting, but that may explain some of the delay. As far as I know, SDV has not been rolled out, so those of us with Cable Cards aren't missing anything...yet.

    I seem to have lost every HD channel above WOFL. I thought it was due to SDV being rolled out. Does anyone have confirmation as to whether SDV is in use or not? I'd like to know before calling the CSRs at BHN.

    Interesting.. today I seem to have gained all the HD channels that I previously didn't get because of SDV. i.e. CNNHD, ESPNUHD, SCIHD, TLCHD and so on..

    Anyone know why?

    thanks for the heads up, I too am now getting all HD channels :)
    no clue why, but I love it. Hopefully they will keep them live until the tuning adapter comes out

    +1 Thanks nunzio23!!

    Maybe this is BH's way of saying the Tuning Resolver is going to take longer than they thought? :( Maybe lab testing is going bad....

    I dunno why either, but I'm happy about it too! I had to cycle the power to get the 'missing' HD channels (as well as add them back into the channel list.) It's nice to be able to have the channels I pay for! :rolleyes:

    I thought I had posted this already, but it seems not.

    Here is the email I received from BHN on Friday:


    This says to me that all testing is complete, and they're essentially ready to go.

    I'm guessing we'll probably know here long before they put anything on their WEB site about it. I suppose that since this is BrightHouse, there will be an added fee for the devices.

    You're looking at it the wrong way. Think of it as 'white glove treatment'.

    More like Rubber glove at the Dr.'s office treatment. When they come out I'll have to check again if I can get "M" cards.
