With all that has been happening in last 24hrs in DC I was trying to tune into CSPAN. But when I did it showed that I couldn't open it. I called Comcast and they said CSPAN is now Digital Only and only available to people on X1 cable boxes. Does anyone have a list of channels that are only IP X1 and not available to us Roamio CableCard users?

CSPAN-HD is on the list to go IP Only. In many areas this has already happened. In many areas this has not yet happened, but we assume it will eventually. When CSPAN-HD goes IP Only, there should still be a Tivo accessible CSPAN in SD, although possibly at a different channel number than you're used to, possibly at a channel number you've removed from your tivo's channel list, so you may need to go hunting.

Yep just off the top of my head I know those also don't work. Also of note "newsmax" is one my dad at the holiday was upset didn't work when he came to visit. Now I know why. But I'm ok with that not being on all holiday ;)

Seems like Rovi needs to update their channel data / lineups.

And yes I did find an SD CSPAN 2 & 3 in the 3 digit land. But CSPAN1 is gone for sure

I just checked for CSPAN on my CableCARD box, and I still have the main #1 channel in SD there. I figure I don't need to see Lindsey Graham in HD, so I'm good. :)

Seriously though, I also see all nine versions of CSPAN listed in the Xfinity Stream app, and if I want them on my TV sets there's an app for that on Android and Fire TV, and iOS too. Plus I can use the Channels DVR TVE feature to record or view them. In both cases, no X1 box required.

I wish I had seen this a week ago. Over the past few weeks, I have noticed that a few channels (TCM, TBN, CMTV) had gone black. Finally, I was patient enough to suffer through the Comcast call center. Needless to say they couldn't fix anything, so the sent a guy out. Yesterday, he came and replaced a connector (I think because that's just what they do). Of course, that didn't work. He swapped out the cable card (some hope there) and ran guided setup. No joy. He called "my supervisor" for advice... nothing. When I saw this thread after he left, I checked and all of my CSPAN channels are gone now (don't care much either) I think those were there before he came out. I never got Newsmax. Northern California.
