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.
How many analogs did you have before? It's possible you scanned for Air channels instead of cable. Try scanning once again and make sure you're under Cable, DTV Cable, QAM, STD or something other than Air or Antenna mode.
Has nothing to do with the adapter which is the incorrect name for a set top cable box... It's what you pay for.... and others as well, those are entry level boxes only designed for the one way encrypted qam tiers (usually the low starter channels 1-60 or70....). If there's no room for proffit in those tiers, or lack of customers demand they're in the bottom packages, TWC- now Spectrum won't include them. It's all about the $$$'s
They won't do PPV, MOD, SDV channels....
If you're paying for those channels you need the proper 2 way full box. You're missing a lot of channels.
DTA's are going away, The one way devices didn't save TWC a dime, actually cost them a lot of money as they can't do remote diagnostics.
Are you saying that your signal is now encrypted so plugging the coax straight from the wall to the tv no longer works? If this is the case you will need a set top box...probably an older one that has coax or composite outputs as the new ones likely only have HDMI. You're correct that the Digital Tuning Adapter is no longer offered.
I think I have solved the problem by switching over to component cables in place of the HDMI cable. I either have a bad HDMI cable, 2 bad HDMI ports on the TV, or an LG TV that doesn't want to work properly with the receiver. Thanks,
This is correct. Spectrum does not offer whole house DVR to new customers but does support it for legacy customers if they already have it. Rumors are that a cloud based DVR is on the radar that could have the ability to record multiple shows at once.
If you are open to the up front cost, a TiVo with a couple of minis is well worth it.
Spectrum just dropped the only movie channel available on the basic package, and replaced it with a really boring "comedy" channel. For shame, Spectrum! Please bring back the Movies! channel for Southern Maine, and stop cheapening your channel lineup. You owe your customers a basic spread of decent programming, in return for all the money we spend.
Not Spectrum's call. "movies!" is a digital sub-net, typically given first right to carry on Fox Owned and Operated TV Channels, which would typically be either a FOX station, or a My Network Station. If one of these stations isn't carrying it, then it is offered up to independent stations in the market.
Spectrum's carriage deal is with the local broadcasting station. The deal is for the primary channels, and maybe some or all of the sub-channels, or possibly none. "movies!" would be a sub-channel. Spectrum will carry what the local station provides. If the local station dumped Movies! for other programming, you will need to take it up with the local station, and not the cable company.
Apparently WPME-TV is no longer carrying "Movies!". If you visit their website, they show MOVIES! programming as "unavailble". Their carriage agreement expired. You need to take it up with WPME management, and not the cable company.
