Contour 2 Won’t Show Authorized Channels
After receiving so many mail and email warnings that my Explorer 8240 HDC would soon stop and catch fire, I installed a new Contour 2. However many reboots later, I cannot ‘receive’ any authorized channels except a reduced number of “TV Starter” channels. I have the “Advanced TV Premier” which includes 7 Paks and HBO/Showtime. [San Diego/North]
For example, 8/1008 (CBS) works, but 23/1023 (MSNBC), 200/1200 (HBO) and all the other expected channels do not work. Either the channel logo and name of program does come up or that happens plus 2 seconds of the program starts, then freezes.
Two Tech Support sessions on the phone did not achieve anything except the advice to take everything apart and get a different unit.
I am thinking that in taking the time and effort to uncable everything in my AV cabinet, move equipment around that I will reinstall my trusty 8240 which never complains and does everything that I need it to do, and pass on getting another Contour.
Does anyone have any experience with this problem, or advice? Thanks
