I've noticed recent glitches with Contour and Caller ID.
Contour. When I turn on my TV, Contour no longer tunes to the last channel I was watching. For example, before I go to bed, I first tune to a specific cable news station before turning off the TV. Since Cox got rid of the option for a power-on station with Contour, this is my digital-age workaround.
Instead of the last channel I was watching, Contour tunes to the next to the last channel I was watching. For example, if I was watching Comedy Central and decided to go to bed, I first tune to the news station and then turn off my TV. The next morning, Contour tunes to Comedy Central. In addition to this "power-on" glitch, Contour also puts 2 icons (channel logos) for Comedy Central in the Last Watch section of Contour.
Caller ID. Cox no longer passes Caller ID info to my telephone. Caller ID info appears on my TV but not on the display of my telephones.
Did you "improve" something again?
Hi, Bruce. While Cox is thinking about those issues, you could tweak your workaround by tuning to the channel you want to be your power on channel and then tune to a different channel before you turn off the TV. (You're probably doing that). The channel you want would then be the next to last channel. If you forget to do that, you can press "Last" to tune to the last channel when you turn on the TV. (You probably do that , too). Or you could swap out that Contour 2 box and get a Contour 1 that actually has a working "Power On Channel" feature.
Ha-ha...yeah, I thought about tweaking my workaround for no power-on channel.
I hate swapping a "functional" box with a glitch for another box with another glitch. I should quit while I'm ahead.
I wouldn't really expect you to swap cable boxes, but what's the Contour 1 glitch?
I have Contour 2. The glitch is my workaround no longer works with my technically deficient box.
I meant I wouldn't really expect you to swap your Contour 2 for a Contour 1. But, don’t you just hate it when you come up with a perfectly good workaround to fix a broken box and then the workaround quits working too?
