Attention: If TWC or Spectrum has lied to you about no longer supporting cable cards and pushing their equipment on you, I strongly urge you to file an FCC complaint against them. I just got off the phone with customer retention who would not let me have their Select cable package without getting 4 HD boxes that I did not want because I have Tivos with Cable Cards (for years mind you). I have filed my complaint and I recommend you do to. Cable Cards are a legal obligation and they are either breaking the law or lying to consumers (also breaking the law). The Spectrum/TWC Executives pushing this inside the company need to go to jail!
I would suggest you contact customer support so we can listen to the call and have this addressed. Every customer has the right to use a cable card if they want.
What happened to Antenna TV?
On Halloween, I recorded the Addams Family marathon only to find out that as of 1 p.m. on October 31, 2017, Antenna would no longer be available. Needless to say, I was angry. I was looking forward to watching the show.
It's bad enough there aren't many good channels left, but to get rid of Antenna (one of the very few good ones), without notice, isn't fair to your customers.
Ever since Spectrum took over, programming has been going downhill.
Do better, Spectrum.
The OP's problem is that WNCN was carrying Antenna TV and their carriage agreement ended. The station changed owners last year.
I'm not the OP, but I am in Wake Forest, NC, and also thinking stupid move on whomever's part it was to let Antenna TV go!! One of the last best channels. We did get the addition of GRIT, westerns and such that I am not intersted in, very poor quality station, non HD, and the sound is awful.
Again, if the local TV Station which carried "AntennaTV" on one of its sub-channels and replaced it with GRIT, there is no action Spectrum can take. It was the decision of the television station.
Regarding picture quality.. These old TV shows were shot on tape, in standard definition. So they'd be at 480i at best. However, many of these channels also stream at a low bit-rate, which makes the picture look like an old video-tape of the show. That too, is on the TV station, which allocates bandwidth for each stream. I am sure their priority is the main channel in 1080i, and not the sub-channels...
Hi. The latest software for SPectrum, and past few years for Time- Warner only allows one to delay recording of a show for up to 15 minutes, and has very broad choices for continuing to record after a scheduled time (like 1 hour, 2 hr). These are grossly inadequate if one has the 2 show recorder or one simply does not want to record 4 hours of a show just to watch the last 15 minutes. Previous Time Warner, and other companies, have software that allows specific recording choices (such as delay 2 hours, delay 3 hour, end 1 hour early, etc). There are way too many times where one wants to record to a specific point, or starting at a specific point, to avoid conflicts with other recordings. This is essential. And a very simple software issue. I worked with Time Warner explaining the need for a better sleep time software years ago, and that was a breeze. Please add this simple added function.
Thanks for the feedback, we will pass your suggestion along to the product team.

Will it cost me if I decide to rearrange my furniture? I have the necessary boxes. All the outlets should be ready to go!
If there is a charge...it is disgraceful!
Depending on the work and time required, they might also charge you if they have to disconnect their existing in-wall cabling from the old outlet and connect cabling for the one you now want to use. As dstoffa noted above, every unused port on an amplifier or splitter must have a terminator fitting installed. This has a huge effect on your internet service modem.
nope, nope and nope.. Run an ethernet cable from your router to the TV. The cable co's aren't going to facilitate smart tv interfacing as it cost them a lot of money.
Multiple modems would also require a non worhable speed plan of some sort and the TV IPTV modem channels are NEVER the same as the internet ones.
nd if your router / switch is far away from your TV, I recommend using powerline ethernet adapters. They are cheap, and will give you better performance than Wifi...
The only things in my home that are wifi are the things I carry around with me...
What I need to do is program my remote to work on my TV in a spare bedroom that does not have a tw cable box. When I use the 991 code like it says on the back it just controls the volume and the power and can't change the actual channels on the tv. When I press the channel button the cable button lights up not the TV button. I know it's possible because I did it for the TV in the kitchen but forgot how I did it. It was awhile ago. Can anyone help me out. Thanks folks
Sound slike you need to try the manual programming for your specific brand of tv. Try multiple codes as one code may only do volume and another may do everything.
I had 2 old remotes that we were having trouble with buttons not responding to presses. So I took them both back today and was given 2 new remotes. I set them up to work with the TVs and cable boxes and they work to control everything including channels, volume, and on and off, etc. When I press TV and then Video Source, nothing happens. This issue is for both remotes. Any ideas? I was told to return 2 new remotes for 2 new-er? remotes. I'm confused.
