    These aren't working in 75082 yet:

    738 - TWCHD "Channel reserved for future use"
    758 - TLCHD "Channel reserved for future use"
    760 - GrnHD "Channel not available"
    761 - ScieHD No guide info for Tivo
    764 - BIOHD "Channel not available"
    768 - FXHD "Channel reserved for future use"
    776 - ToondHD "Channel not available"

    I'm not worried yet, it's only the first day for the rollout. I'm sure the channels will start working eventually.

    Talked my "Contact" at TWC-DFW and he said that roll outs for each of the areas is slightly different. However, he did say, everyone SHOULD be online with ALL the channels by Jan 15th, 2009.

    It is possible I could have misunderstood him about the rollout, he was kind of in a hurry. So he might have said something along the lines that their were problems with this rollout but things should be fixed on or before Jan 15th.

    Sorry my bad for not listening better.

    We are getting more channels by the end of June 09 as well. Then again things could change. They always do.

    So I wonder what the issue is? TWC issued a public notice

    http://shopping.dallasnews.com/ROP/ads.aspx?s=y&advid=449976&adid=7345142

    This was not supposed to be a staggered rollout, it it very clear that 18 HD channels were to be added Dec 17 in all areas.

    It's not the end of the world--I realize this is just TV. But come on, TWC in north Texas is a total failure with delivering anything they promise. :)

    Exactly... There's a problem somewhere. Although he won't tell me what the problem is. If he even knows at all. Just keeps telling me everything should be up & running on or before Jan 15th.

    All of these showed up this morning in 75225 except BIOHD and GrnHD. I hadn't had any of them before. So they seem to be working it out.
