Advertisements So I did understand your original post. You were expressing an opinion that TWC is breaking the law by not mapping some channels to CableCARDs and urging people to complain. That's your opinion and I understand and appreciate that. In response, I was voicing my opinion that they are not breaking any laws by doing this and that complaining isn't going to get anyone anywhere. We don't need to go back and forth on this, but I have examined the FCC regs concerning cable provider support of CableCARDs (more or less encapsulated totally in Code of Federal Regulations, Title 47, §76.640). Nothing in there requires that they enable access to any specific set of services through them. It may have been the FCC's intent that CableCARDs give access to all non-interactive services, but nothing encoded in the regs makes that a requirement. Take a look yourself--you can see and search the entirety of CFR Title 47 as a single web page here (note that they refer to CableCARDs as "Point of Deployment Cards" or PODs). If you can find something I've overlooked, please point it out. The FCC's order to add and amend various regulations to support CableCARDs and other "plug-and-play-DTV-over-cable" considerations is in Appendix B of this document, starting at PDF page 42. By not mapping the the CW HD on CableCARDs they were clearly breaking specific regulations but they aren't by not mapping Versus/Golf HD, ESPN2 HD and TBS HD and any other pay cable television services that they've recently added. Other TWC divisions have actually taken away large numbers of channels that people used to be able to get through their CableCARDs (notably TWC Austin and TWC Oceanic) as they converted to use of SDV, and appeal to the powers that be hasn't helped those people at all. TWC here is probably not adding any further channels to current CableCARD access so that they don't have to take them away in the near future when complete their plan and move the new channels to SDV. Being given channels for a few months and then having them snatched away would certainly piss UDCR users more than being denied services that they never had. (BTW, I am a resident of San Diego County, one of the more active participants in hdtv.forsandiego.com, and was a Time Warner San Diego subscriber for five years prior to moving from Del Mar Highlands to Oceanside in January. The home that I currently share has been on the market for the past 3 or 4 months and I will have to move again fairly soon, and may very well end up a TWCSD subscriber again).
