    Extend Signal BEFORE Cable Box?

    Hello all, I have a Time Warner (New York) Cable Box. I need to move it 50 feet. When i add a 50 foot cable, the box wont boot. However, if i add a 6 foot cable it will. This leads me to believe the signal is degrading too much over the 50 foot distance. I tried using an inline amplifier...

    Two DVR's

    Lynskyn, I appreciate the help. I bet this was listed as Remote Address in the back of the user manual & I didn't associate it with the Remote Control. My apologies for missing that. Thanks for setting me on the right path! thanks, dan

    SNY Network

    Did anyone from NY get the game on 625? I would think not as no deal was announced yet.

    Two DVR's

    DirecTV Billing Adventure...

    I'm a big D* fan & have been using them for many years. Am just now going through my first real issue with them. I've had about 5 missed appointments for an HD install (missed for several reasons), but the real killer was that I found $600 worth of HW charged to my account. It seems each time...

    next 12 markets?

    That's interesting....i thought that NY & LA were next in line & they are not up yet, so San Fran by the end of the month might mean that SF has jumped ahead of the other 2.

    D* uses every trick in the book...

    The very large marjority of people who are D* customers rarely upgrade their equipment. Most that do upgrade equipment do so during the upgrade specials at a very reduced cost. I guarantee you that what people pay to "rent" cable boxes every month ends up costing them more for equipment they...
