It would appear that as of today (1/7) Cox seems to now tagging all their non-local channels as DRM in the OC? Can anyone else confirm this? Those of us using a HDHomerunPrime are certainly not going to be happy with this decision as it limits the use of the HDHomerun to live tv viewing only and no DVR functionality. Please tell me they don't plan on keeping this permanently (as forcing people to reevaluate their tv options is not conducive to keeping existing customers around). Judging by the forums, its a case of 'welcome to the club' and 'good luck with streaming'.
Running the channel scan now. Looks like DRM is no longer on all the non local channels. I’ll test it out once the scan is completed.
Running a scan now after seeing this. Can confirm in the Omaha market, I’m seeing the DRM tag also remove from the channels as it scans through, very promising, but won’t hold my breath until I hear back on my escalation from the CableCARD team.
Just did a rescan of channels in OC and it looks like the DRM has been removed from the non-premium channels (so back to the way it was before). Looks like either the DRM change was a mistake or they changed their minds, but either way, credit to Cox for making it right.
In Tulsa it's still DRM for all non-local channels! Any other markets still having this issue?
