I have TWC in Southern California (specifically Santa Clarita market) with a Roamio Plus and noticed yesterday that I seem to be missing the following channels that I should be getting:
453 Destination America
469 NBC Sports Network
488 Esquire Network
559 Showtime Too
Is anyone else in my area seeing this?
When I try to tune to those channels, I get the dreaded V53 error. No amount of changing tuners or changing channels up and down helps. I don't normally watch any of the above, so I don't know how long I've had the problem. I only noticed because I was channel surfing and realized that Palladia wasn't coming in when I know it used to in the past. I then walked through my entire channel lineup to see if anything else was wrong and came up with the list above.
I have no problem with any other channel (including SDV channels). I checked the DVR diagnostics for the above, and it reports "yes" for signal lock but "no" for program lock, so I'm assuming the error is on TWC's end. I do have high signal strength and SNR on all channels, so just to eliminate that possibility, I put in an 8 dB attenuator that I happened to have handy. This drops the signal to ~80% and the SNR to low 30s. However, it has no effect on anything. I don't lose any other channels but don't suddenly receive the above. I've also tried power cycling the TA a couple of times and both rebooting and power cycling the Roamio.
I'm going to call the cablecard direct line next week to see if repairing helps, but in the meantime, I just wanted to see if anyone else in my area or on TWC had noticed this problem on those stations. Any other suggestions?
