Myself personally being a Linux user, would be interested in a forum regarding ways to utilize some of the Time Warner Cable services when using Linux. I have gone to great efforts to find work arounds to be able to use things like the new VoiceZone Connect, as well as TWC TV application on my home computer, with varying results.
Time Warner Cable does provide best effort on Windows & Macintosh platforms, though I find Linux, being a smaller group of users, often times gets left behind. This is true on many internet sites, software and computer related services, not just Time Warner Cable.

Solved! Go to Solution.
The main reason things like TWCTV.com won't function on Linux is Silverlight, which delivers (licensed) content similar to netflix. There WAS an open-source alternative to Silverlight for Linux (Moonlight), but they decomissioned that product. As Silverlight is not going to be developed further, I don't forsee Moonlight coming back unless the developers see fit to do so.
Thanks for the suggestion. We will keep Linux users in mind as we grow the Community.
Most likely, that moonlight version won't fit with it. You're certainly welcome to try, but I know that version of Moonlight is a few revisions behind the current Silverlight. Give it a shot! (Note that we can't support the installation or troubleshooting of Moonlight)
It's time to go with everyone else and code in HTML5. Silverlight is like Flash...it's a dead end, even on Windows. Use HTML5, and your apps will work for MAC, Windows, Linux, Chrome, Android, etc.
And yes, I use Linux, but Android IS Linux...if you can do this in Android, you can do this in regular Linux Distros. If you're concerned about app development costs, there is a large open source community that would assist for free. Think about it.
Here's what Linux users need to use the Time-Warner Live TV:
Any way that can be included in customer support in some way?
I just installed it on my Linux Mint and it works like a dream.
