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.
rmalbers Beerman see above, start a channel scan and see if the DRM tag starts to clear out and report back here
Yep, I'm good. Ran a scan and it's back to where it was. I think we should be told what happened. Certainly no one I spoke to had any idea at all and very, very little knowledge of cable cards.
Ya, we really need to know if this was just a screwup or if COX is going to make this change again. Obviously, COX support does not understand the problem and has no idea what happened.
