FYI, I just received a letter from TWC Albany of a big-time channel lineup change.
Channels are going into categories (sports, news, etc.) and it will not matter if it is HD or not so no more going to the 1700s or 1800s for HD ("We will automatically bring you the best-quality picture possible on any channel you choose. So no more searching for HD or SD channels.").
Debating switching to DIRECTV after this whole MSG debacle. One thing holding me back is no HD feed for My4 for Yankees games. The DIRECTV website doesn't show that as being available in HD. Does anyone know if there's an option for that?
My brother-in-law has DIRECTV and I believe they do not have an HD version of that. He always switches to the MY4 OTA signal when Yanks are on haha.
Oh I know they're digital stations.... Those "18-" channels have been moved to "6-1", "10-1" etc ...located now in similar locations as those who do not have cable. I don't recall ESPN and Golf channel etc being availble in HD without having a box....
I have the Cisco HDC box and noticed a fix as well....
I was having trouble maintaining output resolution after powering down. I have it set for 1080i only and it would switch to 480p when powered down and remained when powering back up. Would have to tune to an HD channel to get resolution to switch to 1080i.
The update seemed to have fixed that issue as well...it has remained at 1080i.
I got the Cisco 8640 box and there might be an HDMI bug with it.....
I've got my resolution set to 1080i only and resolution reverts to 480p when powered off and on. I've got to tune in to an HD channel to get it to switch to 1080i then I'm good to go. I tried leaving the box tuned to an HD channel and 480p switch still occurs when powered off and on. Not sure if using component cables would solve the problem because I haven't tried that yet. My solution is to have the power on channel set to an SD channel.
Other than that issue....the box runs much much much better than the several HDC models that I have had in the past.
If you do a google search...you will find several others having the same problem as I've stated above.
