    I think the big problem is that TWC is adding the channel by their region and not across the board. For example, parts of Ohio got USA HD but our area did not. Tivo just picked up the lineup change in my general area and told me I had the channel when in fact I do not. Tivo was just too generous with the messages stating we had a lineup change.

    I have an SA8300HD from TWC Dayton and I just checked 769 USAHD and it is working. BUT my TivoHD w/cc no signal. Debating when to call TWC and ask them to hit the CC's. Always an adventure and could be painful.:rolleyes:
    You just never know what your going to get!!

    I'm in Northeast Los Angeles and my S3 sees that all of the new HD channels are there, and I can view them without needing a Tuning Resolver, but there is no Guide information for any of the channels so I cannot program my S3 to record anything. I'm going to be calling TWC on Monday or Tuesday to see if there is anything that they can do about it.

    If you can find out what time and new HD channel the events you want are scheduled to be broadcase, set your S3 up to perform a manual recording from start time to end time on that channel.

    You do not need to have guide data to able to schedule a recording.

    You are in Huber? So am I. I talked to three separate people at Time Warner that said USAHD wasn't offered in Time Warner Dayton at all. You have been successful at viewing this channel?

    Yes, I am in Huber. I watched the Olympics this morning on 769 on a SA8300HD. Apparently they only have programming at certain times. The station has "programming unavailable" airing at this time. The guide says Olympic coverage will resume at 2:00AM. But my TivoHD's CC's are not bringing in the station.

    I'm in Time-Warner East San Fernando Valley (formerly Adelphia) and they changed the QAM assignments a few days ago.

    Instead of 93-501 for KCBS, 93-502 for KNBC, Time-Warner has changed them to match the OTA equivalents so KCBS is 2-1, NBC is 4-1, etc.

    Unfortunately, it looks like they are compressing the signal more as my file sizes are about 40% smaller for KCBS and KTLA.
    Let's hope this is only for the Olympics.
    :rolleyes:

    This is the response I got to my complaint with Time Warner:

    "We understand that you are having issues with channel 769 in the Dayton area. This channel will be called "Beijing HD", and will air live programming from 2:00 am to noon (until 2pm on the weekends) and provides the HD version of USA Channel programming. 165 hours simulcast of USA will appear on this channel only during the specified time, and only for the duration of the Olympic coverage. The channel will not be available for viewing outside of the previously specified time frames."

    This still doesn't address the noncompatibility with the Tivo, but explains why no other programming is available on the channel. It will literally only broadcast live olympics coverage for 10 hours from 2AM to 12PM.

    They probably have to authorize it, send a signal to the CC's. The question is is it worth the pain of spending 30 min. on hold, getting someone without a clue and or screwing up what we already have working to get one channel airing part time for less than 2 weeks.:D

    TWC just irritates me when it comes to their HD line-up especially since they are running commercials claiming to have the most extensive HD availability, yet,
    no USA-HD, no Bravo-HD, no Sci-Fi-HD, no A&E-HD, no AMC-HD... :thumbsdown:

    I talked to TWC of Southwest Ohio about USA HD and CNBC HD for Mason and they new nothing except for the hours counting down to when the channells will be available. Looks like that will be after the SDV switchover Friday Morning on the 15th.

    I recently signed up for TW cable and had them install 2 cable cards in my Tivo 3 HD box. HOWEVER, I only get about 7 HD channels out of some 24 available here in Syracuse, NY. For instance: I get HBO HD but don't get TBSHD, HISTHD, USAHD, ESPNHD, etc, etc.

    Should you get the same HD channels with the cable cards that you get with the HD Box from TW? I got the box also so I can "see" all 24 channels, just not through the TIVO.

    I am a TWC customer in Texas - My local TWC office informed me that they don't even send techs out to install MCards anymore. I have to drop off my tivoHD box at the office and then it will be up to 2 weeks before I get it back! Abso-freaking-ridiculous! I HATE TIME WARNER CABLE!
    All of this is on top of the fact that I was first told that TWC didn't offer cable cards, then that they do but only if I wanted PPV, then that I would need them to enjoy HD and digital programming, then I met with a tech (after taking the afternoon off from work) and he told me that I had to bring it in to the local office. aaghhhhh!

    Tuning Adapter? I spoke with tech support at TWC/San Antonio today and he said that because TiVo is a third party provider, and that they (TWC) have their own DVR, that they wouldn't probably be offering the tuning adapter!! WOW!! Well - we know that's just wrong. And, how the "customer focus" of such a statement is also wrong.

    Jimbo, Don't pay attention to what those CS morons say... Most of them are talking out of their #ss! I am in Cincinnati and rec'd an official letter from TW (like many here) stating that the adapter would be available later this year. It will come... Just don't hold your breath as I am skeptical about the timeline...

    August 15th! D-day for SDV in Cincinnati... I am just hoping when I get home tonight that this big switch doesn't screw up the non SDV channels.

    Nothing like going home and seeing 60 channels disappear...

    Any predictions on when TW will actually get the Tuning Adapter out? I say Q2 2009...

    USAHD (or Beijing HD)is working fine for me on my series 3. I live in Moraine. It's disappointing that it's only for the Olympics, but it is nice to have for now. I wonder when today that all the sdv channels go away. I know a few are still working right now for me, but I've already lost FoxReality (125).

    I live in Troy, and just checked 769 USAHD. There is a signal on my S3, but it's after 12, so I'll have to wait until tomorrow.
