How long does a channel have to be dormant, i.e. without a channel change, before Cox throws up the automated "this channel is now blank due to inactivity" screen, 4 hours - 6 hours, 8 hours - what is the current time interval?
Is there some way I can turn off this feature? I frequently leave my tv on a single channel in the background and really do not like having to retune it when the music comes on.
Didn’t older, analog, uncompressed qam cable eat more bandwidth? Some of us use NON-COX dvr systems (not based on cable card), and our recordings often are ruined because of this. It’s really too bad we can’t do as we wish with the feeds, bandwidth and channels which we, your customers, PAY FOR. Still having a hard time buying the concept that one, heavily compressed digital channel eats enough bandwidth to make this necessary.
