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'.
We (in Orange County) previously received a notice that "Effective on or after 12/3/2020, we're making it easier to watch the channels you love. We are removing the duplicate HD channels on 1000-1950. You can still enjoy the programming previously on these channels by tuning into the lower 2 or 3-digit corresponding channel number."
So while my tuner is detecting the new 2 and 3-digit channels (in addition to the 1000+ channels that still appear to be there), all of them, except for locals, are now DRM'd (where they weren't before). Please on behalf of those of us who are attempting to keep our costs down by running third-party tuners, un-DRM them (at least the 'basic' cable channels). Thank you.
Oh my gosh! In Omaha I got hit with this this morning. Almost all the non-local stations are now marked as DRM enabled. Pretty much all my Plex and watching from my Windows PCs now are broken.
Yeah my HDHomeRun stopped too. Does anyone know if this is becauseCox Switched to ATSC3.0?
siliconDust sells a new ATSC3.0 tuner for 199.00 if they did.
I am having the same issue with DRM in the OC as of 1/7
