    Sudden loss of all local channels?

    CS just had me do a hard reboot (unplugging the box), and now everything seems to be back... Whew - scarey for a sec :no

    question for voom subs

    I don't know all that much about DISH, but I've been a customer of DIRECT TV before and I'll never go back to them - the zombies they have working CS is my biggest complaint, other that it would be no HD, that and they are expensive compared to everyone else and from what I remember it wasn't...

    That's the impression I have about all this - it basically sounds like James has been running things into the ground, including the sports franchises...

    Alright, I'm starting to get really confused as to what is going on with all this... It seemed at first all this was about was keeping a dream alive, and all of us couch potatoes (pun intended) happy and content with our HD. Now, with all these speculations and everything else going on - it...

    Dead pixels

    Yep, same spot as for me - I would assume that if this was a software bug that it would have been fixed well before now, especially since it has been around for a long time... Given that, and switching video modes (bringing up the guide) fixes things I'm guessing it has to do with the video card...

    Newbie here

    The only difference I have seen between the DVI and component (tried both on my VOOM box) is that the component kind of flickers getting into the resoloution, while the DVI snaps in - other than that, I don't see any difference on my setup (Hitachi 57" WS).

    Dead pixels

    Just out of curiosity - does everyone have the "dead pixels" in the same spot or are they random, on mine (which only started up recently) it's in the same spot... If it's the box and has been there all along (a year plus for some), lets hope that the new fancy, smancy DVR will cure it all :D

    Dead pixels

    With all the issues with the PQ since switching encoders - has anyone else had "dead pixels" show up? Essentially a white dot that will not go away (same spot each time) unless I bring up the guide - changing channels doesn't help... Just curious if I need to call CS or not....

    Is it just me this morn, or are the HD CHANNELS CLEARER

    I'm watching "SpaceJam" on HBO right now, and the pixelation is horible - but mainly limited to the quickly moving images, the faster the movement the worse it is... I'm not expert on video formats, but from what I understand the pixelation is coming from to much compression... Which says to me...

    Harmonic Encoder Improvements? (Feedback Need it)

    Volume a problem? I don't know if this is a problem with the mpeg4 stream or not, but in the last week the volume has gotten all screwed up (anyone else notice this?). I used to be able to surf channels without changing volume (a little if at all), now I may be on one channel, having to jack up...

    Another new SEC filing (CVC 8-k): Closing of Rainbow DBS business has been delayed!

    Was I reading that right - in that the SEC possibly suspects something shady going on with getting rid of the satellite? :confused: Naughty, naughty James....

    The ( page is back! (And back to shutdown mode)

    Something is going on... I just did a whois on - and the database was updated 03/02/2005 @ 2:27 EST. It is still owned by CV and operated by CV - have no idea what the changes were :no This is getting nuts! Everyone outside of VOOM seems to be saying that it is walking to it's...

    All SD & HD Channels moved to Harmonic Encoder

    I don't have a 9 foot screen, only a 57" WS, but equator looks awesome to me...

    All SD & HD Channels moved to Harmonic Encoder

    VOOM Message Can't take a picture of it.. But here it is... "Technical upgrades completed!" "VOOM has been adding capacity. If you encounter a black screen, please channel up then down to restore normal reception." So is this good or bad??? :confused:

    CSR Comments on Voom Website

    I was actually thinking about this earlier, with all the down sizing and company buyouts that I have been through - sometimes the best thing to do is just start over from scratch. But at least this time around he would have 40,000+ subs to start with :yes It's just my opinion here, but I...

    Breaking News: Flash From Voom Website: VOOM ceasing Operation by end of March

    Confused, and sad... This is a very sad day for HDTV'ers :no The one thing that I find so odd about all this is that customer service has no clue what is going on - I just got off the phone with them, nice as usual (going to miss that), to change my automatic billing to the paper bill - all...

    Voom lite???

    Well, lets hope it is just the actual shows and not what is to come but I've noticed a few things also. The volume is screwed up now (used to be equal for the most part for all the channels), and UHD is getting screwy lately (like what you were talking about)... I called into to complain about...
