I don't have another TV to check.
Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks.
Mediacom recently added copy protection using CCI to all Fox/Disney (including ABC/ESPN) channels except broadcast, they say under new contract requirements of the suppliers. There are extensive discussions of this on their support forum, https://forums.mediacomcable.com/index.php?board=2.0
People with TiVos are not having the same issues as those with HDHome Runs and WMC, but a few people have posted issues with improper pairing that these changes have exposed.
The best way to get this fixed is to work with the folks on that forum. Post your issue, they will ask you to PM them with your phone or account number, CC serial number, data and host id's. Don't even consider trying their phone support. The forum people usually take care of things in less than an hour.
