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...
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.
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.
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.
We have a successful resolution, although with a secondary problem.
The service tech who came today called his office contact & gave her our actual DVR's serial numbers. She said there was no such DVR in their system, the same as the phone support & Chat reps had said. So the tech asked her to look in our records for the previous DVR they had listed for us. It turned out that there was an error in the serial number of our DVR in their main database. The number in their records for us was correct, but their master database had it wrong. That's why the phone & chat reps couldn't find it.
This guy had her send an activation signal to the DVR listed in our records, and that activated it. Significantly, all our recordings were retained and accessible. Hooray!
There's a problem though -- the previous tech listed us as having a new DVR, and the one we've had all along is our active one, so Spectrum thinks we have 2 DVRs.
The tech said he has no way to correct this. He said if he removed the one we don't have from our records, he would be responsible for it, and of course he doesn't have it because the previous guy kept it. This tech said there's no way to get in touch with the previous guy. Apparently the first guy was a contractor and this one a Spectrum employee. My guess is that there must be a way to get in touch with him but he just didn't want to bother.
I fear that eventually Spectrum will bill us for a second DVR that we've never had. I don't know what to do about it. I'll call them to explain the situation but the odds of them taking my word that we don't have the other DVR seem pretty slim.
Anyway the immediate problem was resolved. I'm happy to have my recordings back. But we're left with a secondary problem that we'll eventually have to deal with.
