Thanx for the response, but I dont any of your suggestions are the case. There were no conflicts, A guide update in Primetime? I am not having any signall issues. All channels are clear. No problems at all.
There can be cases in isolated instances where the DVR decides not to record for unknown reasons. Let us know what happens next week! For reference, what is the series who's episodes got skipped?
I am completely disappointed that Time Warner Cable allows extremely dirty descriptive titles of their porn channels to be displayed for kids to see. Are you kidding me ??
As I'm writing this, it almost sounds like an SNL comedy segment, but unfortunately its on full display in Sprectrum's guide list.
Time Warner Cable, how about you be considerate of your viewers with young kids?
Spectrum is and has always been comitted to protecting children and families from seeing this kind of content. The older SA model boxes (SA-8300's) did have an Adult catagory in the Theme section. The newer boxes have keyboards that block this kind of content. Two questions first:
1.) Where are you seeing these Adult Titles? (On the keyboard results, on the Time Grid in the Guide, or both?)
2.) What is the make and model of your cable box?
Regardless of box type, all of the Spectrum Cable Boxes have Parental Control blocking features that can be actived, as well as optional pin-number set up for On Demand and Pay-Per View purchases.
The General instructions for Parental Control are as follows:
1.) Press Settings on your Remote Control.
2.) Find Parental Control Settings.
3.) You can block by Title, Channel, Rating, or Content.
4..) Note that if you block by rating, let's say for example R, and you turn on Parental Control. Any R-rated movie will require a parental control pin number to be entered as wll as all ratings ABOVE the R-rating. (Such as X, NC-17, and Adult.)
5.) In Settings choose the blocking categories that you wish to block. Content refers to Language, Nudity, or Violence in shows.
6.) Blocking Titles will hide the adult titles from the screen, but on some cable box guides MAY NOT RESTRICT VIEWING. To do that, you would need to set up a Rating Block, Content Block or both.
7.) During Parental Control Set up, you will be asked to enter a four-digit pin number. You want a pin number that is easy to remember but hard for kids to guess. Keep this number in a safe place. This is known as a Parental Control Blocking Pin, and it must be entered before blocked content can be viewed.
8.) The default blocking pin is usually 0000, but this can be changed in the prompts if needed. Confirm your changes in the prompts.
9.) Turn on parental controls in Settings. This is needed for them to work!
10.) If you ever forget your Parental Control Blocking pin, call Customer Care, and they will help reset your pin number.

I recently got the CLKR-5 (UR5U-8780L-TWC) remote control and tried unsucessfully to program the remote for my 40" Westinghouse television. After doing some internet searches I came across a post that the Westinghouse shared the same codes as a Sony. I tried Sony code 001 and it worked!!! Just sharing this solution incase some else and run into this issue.
Thanks! Reposting as a quote to mark it as a solution (original posts cannot be solutions)
There was a guide update overnight. it may be necessary to restart the cable box once the update completes.
If the issue is not resolved, we encourage you to contact support directly for further assistance.

A solution. I unplugged/rebooted the boxes and it didn't seem to work. But next time I unplugged from power AND I unplugged the cable and hdmi from the box... so everything. I waited 20 minutes. I replugged in everything and voila!!! I have my old guide info again. Woo Hoo. I had read somewhere that someone had luck with something similar with a complete unplug so i tried it myself.
Am I the only one that is very disappointed with this new digital set up that is supposed to be better? I have the basic service which covered a lot of channels like Lifetime, Syfy, Discovery, Nat Geo, Disney,Food Network, History, DIY, and the local channels just to name a few. Now I can’t get these channels on my basic plan, so do I have to pay more to get them? Are they now premium channels? Some of us can barely make the basic payments and they want us to pay more? It was fine before the so called digital upgrade that’s supposed to be better. A lot of us may just cancel the tv service all together because there’s nothing basic to watch anymore. Too many unnecessary channels on the line up so it’s a waste of money. Just wanted to put this out there to see if there are others that feel this way. Mahalo
The channels you cite have been part of the Standard Tier and above. They were never part of the Basic / Starter Tier. You received analog SD feeds of them gratis because:
1. You were a Starter / Basic (approximately $20 per month) subscriber, and the RF filters required were not installed or they were removed. This tier only includes the local channels, public access, the C-SPAN channels, Home Shopping, and maybe a payTV netowrk or two (WGN America, etc.)
2. You were also an internet customer, and the needed RF filters to block out the channels you didn't pay for were not installed because they weren't available or they caused other problems with your service...
You were getting them for free. They are now only giving you what you pay for.
