    Duplicate HD channels

    I live in Baltimore Co., MD. Recently my Comcast service has added a nymber of duplicate HD channels (like 811 as well as 211 for the NBC affiliate). Why?

    Local Channels

    If you can install your own equipment, no problem. If you need professional installation, start with the actual address, then within a short amount of time, call D* and change your service or "installation" addrerss to the one you want. Maintain your current phone number and billing address...

    Longer than 30 second skip available?

    Is there a way to send a skip longer than 30 seconds? I was used to a 15 minute skip on Tivo. Motorola DCH 3416 HDVR Comcast On Demand HD Remote (silver)

    Comcast/TiVO is here

    Agreed. I do miss the following w.o. Tivo: jump to beginning and slow motion. I'm probably missing something to accomplish those with the Comcast on Demand HD remote. Any suggestions?

    I am still interested in the answer to nsafreak's question about the 30 second skip in Comcast-with-TIVO. I've gotten pretty fond of that function since I learned how to program it in. We used TIVO for years with DIRECTV and never had that capability.

    And good luck with getting the cable cards to work with Tivo. I don't think Comcast has any interesting in getting them to. In my case 4 attempts failed.

    Welcome New Members! (Please Say HI here!)

    Just joined Hello. I am a recent convert to Comcast HD and have joined to keep up on news. I must admit to having been a devout fan of DIRECTV with Tivo, but events have conspired to wean me away. First, an unsolvable tree problem kept us from getting HD through DIRECTV. I can "see" the...
