I'd be interested to know what someone's full bill is after taxes and fees once they finally get it. My TWC bill with JUST basic cable and internet is about $125-130 dollars. This fios looks like a steal.
For those interested, I just got free road runner turbo for a year because I complained my cable bill was too high and will be leaving for fios when(ever) it arrives. I complained to the guy in the live chat and he said he'd make a note on my account for the next point of contact to help me and gave me the number to the sales department. I called them, the woman I talked to didn't seem to have any idea what the online chat guy was talking about, and then I told her he was going to give me free road runner turbo, and then she was like ok. She looked up the promo code for it and applied it to my account. Said it was free for 1 year, and I just need to reboot the cable modem when I get home. I was ok with that, it should speed my usenet along, and after a year if fios isn't available to me yet, I will just call and complain again. Good luck.
I finally cut the cable cord. Returned my two 8300 HD boxes yesterday which I've had for a loooong time. My wife doesn't like the call quality of Ooma, which is our alternative to Time Warner's phone, so we're keeping that (for now).
Still, our bill drops from $197 to $119 monthly (Internet + phone + basic cable). I'm going to keep working on my wife about dropping the phone as well.
Now that I have two networked Windows 7 PCs with an HDHomeRun dual tuner (adding a second one today actually) I still get the convenience of DVR for all the network shows we watch.
Might be worth your while to check out Obihai (obihai.com/). They have been selling out as soon as they get in stock, is only $50, and can tie right into your google voice account to make and receive free calls using a normal phone like a landline. The reviews have been really good, and I'm really interested in trying one out so I've been keeping my eyes on the inventory at Amazon. You can get one now, if you want to pay twice as much as they sell for on ebay. Reminds me of when the wii came out, the money people were making off of them on ebay was crazy.
This is probably way too early for this, but does anyone know whether there is anything else coming down the pipeline yet to replace the premiere? I'd like to get a second tivo for my house but I was pretty underwhelmed by the premiere, and was wondering if it was going to be a long wait for the next generation? Going by how long it took for the premiere to come out after the HD, I'm going with yes it will be a while.
So after you've rebooted the tuning adapter, do you have to go into the tivo settings and manually tell it to show those channels? Wouldn't the tivo still have no idea what those channels are? I haven't seen a lineup update lately.
When I returned home yesterday, I immediately rebooted both of my Tuning Adapters. This didn't correct the issue.
I called Mike at TWC (he provided me with his extension number and said he would be working until 7:30PM) and left a voicemail. He called me back within the hour and had me change to a few of the new HD channels...none of which tuned. He noted the messages I told him were on the screen and said he would investigate further and call me back. I asked if I would receive a call back today, and he said he would call me back before the end of his shift even if he hadn't resolved anything.
