problem has been going on for about 2 months. had techs come out, they finally think it is a headend channel programming issue. However, nothing so far has been resolved.
End of May/beginning of June, I did a new guided setup on my premiere after moving it to another room. (wanted to include antenna stations as well). this one has cable cards and a TA.
Now, when TA is on, I get a screen stating someone to the effect of "this station requires a cardcard, pls contact your cable provider". When I turn the TA off, some channels all of the sudden will appear. Example, cannot get ch.1026 (pbs HD) with TA, it works w/TA off. Actually - I get a spanish channel (1014 on my lineup on ch 1026 with the TA on. When TA is on, there are some channels I do get, like BRAVO HD, that I can't get when I turn off the TA.
Also, some of the channels are not what they say they are by the guide info. Example - Channel 1081 is supposed t be USAHD - it is showing ESPN SD. Channel 1078 is supposed to be AnimalPlanetHD - it is SPEED SD. Channel 1073 is supposed to be HISTORYHD, but is is SPIKE SD. Channel 1076-1071 all don't show up at all.
And it goes on, and on.
I also had relocated an S3 to another room, and did the same thing-new guided setup around the same time. This S3 -does not- have any cable cards or TA. I have the same problem w/that one, getting the Spanish channel on channel 1026 when 1026 is supposed to be PBS.
I have been talking w/the tech over the last 2 months, and he says that this problem is popping up more, but there is no resolution.
Luckily, I do have a S3 in the living room that is working, pulling in all of the stations correctly. That one was a recent purchase and i did a guided setup the end of MAY for that one.
So this problem appeared sometime the beginning of June.
anyone familiar with this situation? anyone has any resolution?
