    Considering TWC...have questions need answers

    Sazkin, how many TV's do you have? If you have only 1, then I don't understand why you would want to install the Cable Card since the Digipic 4000 package includes the DVR in the price. With just 1 TV, the Cable Card would be overkill and just an additional, unnecessary cost (although little...

    Analog Channels have Lines

    Call in a service call for the rolling lines. When the technician arrives, if he tells you there's nothing wrong or nothing he can do, tell him (politely) that you'll probably have to "go back to" Satellite since you didn't have that problem with them. He'll probably give it "one more try" or...

    DVI vs. Component

    I have a Sony XBR 960. I originally connected it to the Voom box through component. It worked fine. No lockups and the picture was acceptable. I recently switched to DVI (actually HDMI/DVI; the TV is HDMI). When I first hooked up the DVI, I noticed the colors were very dull. That lasted...

    NFL HD Starting Mid August or Sept 2004?

    Thanks, Sean, for replying to my message. Actually, I had read the early part of this thread were you mention that 311 should be back in August. I was just questioning why ZAP2IT would show programing for today on 311. Should I just assume that any listings in ZAP2IT are suspect? For 311 or...

    NFL HD Starting Mid August or Sept 2004?

    How come the ZAP2IT listing for VOOM Channel 311 shows an "HD Game of the Week" for today? Doesn't make sense. Is that just a mistake?
