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.
In Tulsa it's still DRM for all non-local channels! Any other markets still having this issue?
The New Orleans market had this issue crop up this weekend. Initially all channels had drm flag added. Now this morning on a scan it looks like the flag is being removed has channels are going back to not having the flag. Something happened with an upgrade the goofed something up real bad.
I would add that i remember getting a letter back in december that said that the channel numbers were about to change. I think it was they were removing the separate HD channel specific numbers 1000+. I can't remember the switch date but i wonder if this had something to do with that and when the change happened there was a flag incorrectly set to add the DRM on the channels when it wasn't supposed to be there and now they are having to go back and clear that out?
I am also in Tulsa and it's still the same issue
@Chmarkes and @jacksonroh please run a channel scan and let us know the results. -Allan, Cox Support Forums Moderator.
looks like this has been resolved in the Tulsa area
