CaptureI have been able to test that the channels come in fine with the tuning adapters by using the Digital Tuner Diagnostics utility in Media Center.  Now I just need Zap2It to update their website so I can get the channels in my guide.

The information on channel lineup changes is on a support page off of the Time Warner Cable website (Support > Digital Cable Support > Channel Change Information).  This is my direct link: http://www.timewarnercable.com/Carolinas/support/policies/channelchange.html

  1. So, with TWC did this change, did they remap any of your QAM channels? Did you have to rescan with the HDHR? Did you have to rescan the channels through the CableCARDs?

  2. Everything is still working. I didn't have to touch anything.

    The one thing that was kind of weird was that I lost 3 channels for a few days because they were being moved from normal channels to SDV channels. They are all back and working now without me having to do anything.

  3. How are you able to use tuning adapters with your tuners, I thought that required a new ATI firmware that was not yet released?

    Was that incorrect, and tuning adapters work out of the box with Windows 7? If that's the case, I have to give TWC a call here in RTP.

  4. I was given the firmware update from AMD/ATI to do my review on the firmware. Because of that I have tuning adapter support.

  5. I work for DISH Network and am glad to see that Time Warner is adding HD channels but even so, DISH offers more HD channels than any other provider. Not only that, but DISH is the only way to get the lowest prices with HD Free for Life. I love DISH and recommend it to everyone.
