I keep getting these warnings/messages that Cox is retiring the Explorer 8240hdc box and after Sept 5 2019 it will now work at all. I still have the issue out there being charged $8.50 per month for several years for an 'Advanced TV HD DVR Receiver'. Again, Cox's Cable from outside: goes into the box (cable in), Cable out to the TV in.....you get Standard Definition (sd), because the cable out from this box is SD. You need a different technology....HDMI cable to get HD. 2 weeks ago I was told by a Cox rep on the phone that it doesn't matter what type of box you have, even if it does not record, ff or rewind, the 8.50 charge will apply anyway. I think ox should refund that 8.50/month for xx years.
Also, the multi-stream cable card: could it be modified or used to allow multiple users on your TV broadcast???
change the box or take it back and drop cable hdmi is for video and the card can't be modified
Thanks,,,,,,that's just it......I have issues with the box....and hdmi enhances both video & audio.....so you don't think a refund of 8.50/month for 3+ yrs is on its way ????
no coax is from outside to the digital box hdmi from box to tv cable card is security 3 different things the $8.50 is the hardware fee all the boxes no matte if sd or hd is same price to rent just pay dvr feeif wanting a dvr.
