Advertisements I've had a pretty bizarre experience so far in this transition. I was curious what deals they were offering to get people off TWC legacy plans so I called. They offered me the typical phone/internet/cable deal for $100 and I said I didn't need phone. Of course removing a service makes the package more expensive, etc. While I am talking I am also surfing the website and it offers me 60 Mpbs cable and TV for $60/mo plus the usual fees. I tell the rep and she says she can't do that, but if it offers it then try. I did, and it worked. I know by now they are going to send me a cable box and a modem so I didn't fight it. In fact, I was happy to get the cable box. I have a few channels that had stopped working, most notably FS1, and I hadn't had time to troubleshoot. The time I was using to do this was supposed to be that time, but I decided to try to pinch pennies instead. So the boxes and modem arrive, I throw them under the bed. About a week goes by and I notice I am not getting the internet speed I signed up for and the channels still don't come in. Finally, a day off, so I talk to a rep and they say I have to hook up the equipment to get the plan. This probably isn't true, but I have time so I play along. I also learn at this time the Spectrum doesn't charge separately for the modem, so I decide to just leave theirs hooked up, activate it, and now I have my speeds. None of the auto-activate services work for the cable box though so I have to call back. Eventually a rep gets that going, I say thanks, and go to see if by chance this account refresh fixed my V52 errors on my Bolt and Roamio. Nope. So I decide to troubleshoot a bit on my own first. I keep the tuning adapters tucked away, so I pulled one out to reboot it. It was dead. No flashing light, just completely dead. Plug it in, unplug it. Nothing. I go to my other one and it is exactly the same. Weird. So I figure somehow they both died, unplug them, and figure I will start the battle to get two new ones tomorrow. Then my channels came back. Without the tuning adapters, I get everything I am supposed to get as far as I can tell. Did I lose the need for them when I switched to a Spectrum TV package? That doesn't seem possible as they still must be using all the same old TWC infrastructure, but I am staring at it. Did they remote kill my tuning adapters somehow? Or did they just both die and it took their death for me to realize I didn't need them? I am so confused.
