Nice, that really looks neat and sweet, almost like the PS Vue guide.
Glad they finally made a good guide, no more 90s tv guide lol.
The last thing they really need to do is release their new DVRs soon with more tuners...thats all they are missing, otherwise I'd switch to charter for my TV needs.
If you need more tuners then you should have the option to buy a Tivo Bolt/w 4 tuners or Tivo Bolt +/w 6 tuners and rent a Multi Stream cable card from Charter Spectrum cable,you would still have to pay the Tivo fee.
I know this option is available in my area with Charter Spectrum cable.I have not done this myself because Tivo only has a 30 minute live buffer,where my Motorola/Arris box has a 1 hour live buffer.
The last time I talked to a friend of mine (about a month and a half ago), who is a manager at Time Warner here in the Rochester service area, he read me word for word an internal memo he received about employee testing of the World Box in my area. It was slated to begin next week, the first week of May. I haven't talked to him since to see if that is still on. The World Box would be running ODN Navigator in Legacy TWC areas and the test was to coincide with the rollout of ODN 8.0, which was supposed to be loaded last night, but it wasn't.
I also have their Charter Spectrum cable Gold HD package,their boxes upscale the HD picture to 1080p/60 and they offer more HD channels than satellite,plus no rain fade,or channels disappearing be cause of the summer solstice,or winter solstice.
I found that, while TWC (now Charter) may have had more HD channels than Dish or Directv, the picture quality suffered greatly, at least in my area. Also, the signal went out just as much, if not more, than satellite rain fade. YMMV of course.
Maybe the difference might be I have a 4K UHDTV and it takes the 1080p/60 picture from the cable box and upscales it to 4K,hopefully when you have these problems you contact your cable company to fix those problems because those should not be happening on the cable system.
There is no "World Box". It's vaporware, and they'll never bring it out.
It’s been a hectic past handful of weeks, and I haven’t been on this site much otherwise I would have posted this sooner. The WorldBox is most definitely not vaporware. I’ve had one for about 3 weeks now. I traded in my two tuner Cisco 8742 for it. I wanted to get a feel for the box, so even though my Cisco 9865 has six tuners and the WorldBox only has four, I moved the World Box to the main TV so I’d use it more. Since I’m former TWC, as expected, it is running ODN Navigator 8.0.0_23, not the software seen in the links above, and what legacy Charter subscribers see.
Overall it’s a nice box and runs Navigator exceptionally well. On reboot, it still does lose my Dolby Digital audio settings, like the Cisco 9865 does, which is a little annoying. Also while the video does look a little brighter to me, there is a hint of black crush. Not as bad as the Arris Enhanced DVR I had, but it's noticeable. The update to ODN 8 on the Cisco 9565 slowed down my box quite a bit when in the DVR management screens, the World Box is lightning fast, I experience no slow downs when re-prioritizing or deleting series. And I've been doing a lot of that lately. I record 60+ series, I wish there was a way to have them tied to the account, instead of the box.
I have the Spectrum 201-T, which is manufactured by Technicolor, the company Cisco sold their STB business to. Humax is the other OEM for the World Box 1.1. So far being down to 4 tuners hasn't been an issue. I'm thinking it may be once hockey season starts back up. I do also miss the clock on the front display. Not sure why the got rid of it.
