    Why do you continue to insist that people are using their TiVos incorrectly? I bit my tongue in the other thread but this is crazy. The way you use your TiVo is not the only (and in your mind, "right") way. Sheesh.

    This coming from the guy who has an incredibly large and complex home video library? Why do you keep all of those video files if you're never going to watch them? Because you're going to watch them "some day" right?

    Did Brighthouse announce why they removed this charge? Not that I'm complaining.

    BH, South...
    We're getting rid of the bedroom TV since we've lived fine without it after a storm blew it out a few weeks ago. I'm thinking of biting the bullet and getting a TA. Can I pick it up at BH and install myself or not?

    Further, will I be able to get 16 HD (I dunno the HD channel) and MSNBCHD and Current TV (128) and BBCA?

    Thanks.

    The HD version of channel 16 (WUSF) is 1016. It's not an SDV channel so you should be able to pick it up without a TA.

    CurrentTV (ch 128) is SDV and I can pick it up with my TA. BBCA is at ch 127 and ch 1278, MSNBC-HD is at 1218 and all are SDV too.

    As for self-installs ... I don't know. I thought they were supposed to allow CableCARD self-installs so I would assume that could mean TAs as well. I just haven't had a need to try that in some time. Good luck!

    Yes you can go to any lobby location and pick one up. Make sure you also get the USB cable :) If you have any problems please let me know.

    BHNtechXpert - how's the easiest way to tell which BH channels are SDV?

    Thanks.

    Really? Do you have a link for that? All I can every find is the basic channel lineups. I've never been able to find an actual list of which channels are SDV and require a TA.

    Thanks, BHNtechXpert. If there is such a list, it is not readily apparent as to how to access it on the BH website.

    It would be great if you can add some type of SDV indicator to the on-line channel listings, and downloadable channel guide pdfs.

    Thanks!

    After checking things a specific SDV channel list is unavailable online at the moment. You are free to call in an check the channels you enjoy the most or simply provide me with the channels in question and I can verify one way or the other for you.

    For the past month or so, the sound cuts out frequently. Anyone else have this problem? I'm wondering if it is a TiVo problem or a BHN problem.

    Also, how do you all feel about the changes on NBC. I'm not happy with the local stuff from 7-7:30 and the various rescheduling for local, might I say, garbage. I think the other stations are doing this too.

    Thanks yall. Glad the campaigns are over, and thrilled with FF over ads on my TiVo. Keep warm

    I've had that happening recently on my cable company DVR and tivos, one time was no audio (their DVR) for long time switched to other tuner had sound came back to first tuner sound was back, rewound and the audio was there there that wasn't before. Haven't had since a new drop don't know if that has anything to do with it or was some problem with the system.

    No audio issues here that I'm aware of.

    I had to look in my Guide to see what you were referring to ... the local news at 7pm? I hadn't even realized they had done this (I don't really watch news on TV).

    The cutting out that I notice is like a cellphone when it has a bad signal--the sound misses a beat every few seconds. I don't think it's all the time but enough that I wonder whazzup.

    WR, they've added what is junk to me. Stuff that I don't want to see. There were times I'd watch some of the entertainment shows (Mario Lopez (forget the name of the show) and Inside Edition, but now, those shows are on the next day, during the day and something else is on at 7. I don't care enough to TiVo them, but sometimes they are pleasant brainless entertainment.

    Tonight I was irked because NBC was adding a half hour to the news tonight, but our Local Affiliate didn't show it because they have a local show. Oh well. I just watch cable more and more because the locals interfere too much.

    That's what mine was doing except for that one time stayed out, have a new TV in bedroom was afraid it was it till it happened on another TV. Like I said has not done it since the new drop might have been weak signal I had causing it I don't know.
