    h264/MPEG4 video

    Hi Admin65, one year on, any thoughts on TWC And whether they might roll out h264 any time soon? I see Comcast continues to expand h264 into new markets, but haven't seen anything on TWC (or Charter). Thanks.

    TWC price rises Jan 2015

    It's the same on iOS/Android and Roku: Away from Time Warner's internet (so on hotel wifi or at a second home NOT with TWC internet for example) you only get a limited selection of channels on the app - basically the OTA channels if I remember right. But if your second home has Time Warner...

    TWC price rises Jan 2015

    Yes I have a couple of the 3 and an older 2XS (I bought the 2XS because it is the only one which has both wired ethernet and analog composite video out) as well as one stick. I can confirm the 3 is much faster than the 2XS but the latter is still a fine box (in theory I use it in case I ever...

    Thanks Admin65, very helpful. If you do hear any updates please let us know as I'm sure I'm not the only one interested.

    h264/MPEG4 video

    Does anybody know when/if TWC plans to deploy h264/MPEG4 video on the SDV or all protected channels? As my htpc build with windows Media Center relies on Intel's integrated graphics that are not compatible with the format I'd like some warning so that I can take appropriate action beforehand. (I...

    TWC price rises Jan 2015

    Read about the Roku app (and the list of Roku models that support it - basically all the newer ones) here: https://www.roku.com/channels#!details/23048/time-warner-cable The Stick is ideal if you have a decent wifi signal and supports 5Ghz as well as 2.4Ghz. The remote is RF so does not...

    TWC price rises Jan 2015

    Why not buy a roku stick or cheap roku boxes for the rooms/tvs concerned? The TWC TV roku app provides access to every channel you subscribe to other than things like ESPN (which is available instead on the WatchESPN Roku App using your TWC sign on) plus gives access to all the on demand stuff...

    Maybe TW cable will start to figure us out

    Yes Roku looks like the way to watch it. However, if I read it correctly you can only watch it on ONE device at a time - so for example you can't watch something on your connected TV while somebody else on the house watches something on a tablet/phone/bedroom TV. I hope I'm wrong, but I don't...

    TWC price rises Jan 2015

    Just got my bill and I see TWC will be increasing/introducing various charges in January. Does anybody know the basis of the new "Sports Programming Surcharge" ($2.75) shown on the list? Is that for everyone, or only say for those of us who get say ESPN or who (like me) pay for the Sports...

    Current TWC Internet Speeds

    No. 15/1 is fine for Netflix, Epix, WatchESPN, WarnerBros and others I have tried. I use a Motorola 6121 and wired connections to all TV Screens using these services on Roku and AppleTV. The only time I had buffering in the past was when I was using an older Motorola DOCSIS 2.0 SB5101 modem -...

    Current TWC Internet Speeds

    By then my 6121 (around $65) will have paid for itself several times over and will still have good resale value on ebay, so I figure I'll worry about needing more than that then when the range of newer/more capable modems will be clearer and cheaper.

    Time Warner/Comcast merger

    Time Warner Inc (stock ticker TWX) = content company owning HBO, CNN etc, recently bid for by Murdoch's Fox. Time Warner Cable (stock ticker TWC) = cable company merging with Comcast.

    Any update on whether TWC is doing anything right now?

    Current TWC Internet Speeds

    Based on reports like this in the TWC forums: http://forums.timewarnercable.com/t5/Connectivity/Motorola-SB6121-and-TWC-100-mbps/td-p/21115 I'm hoping for/expecting pretty good results from my SB6121 even if it goes to 100mbps service at some point. I also agree with the comments made in that...

I've already eliminated all...

    New TWC Enhanced channel lineup

    By way of update WMC now shows only one source for TWC cablecard - TWC San Diego Digital - so I've done a rescan (TV Signal Setup) in WMC using that and it has fixed my issues. If you have a cablecard, it's time to update.

    New TWC Enhanced channel lineup

    I couldn't agree more. I like the way the TWC TV apps (Roku, iPhone etc) have the channels in alphabetical order. A more radical rethink of the interface would be an excellent idea.

    New TWC Enhanced channel lineup

    Likewise. However, I use the Ceton My Media Center App to control Media Center recordings etc. from iPhone and from Windows 8 PC and there is at least one minor quirk with the lineup: If I set it to record channel ABC/KGTV by setting channel 1200 rather than 10 Ceton MMC converts this to channel...
