I am NOT attempting to record things, just to watch TV on my PC using the HD Homerun viewing app, something which worked fine until Cox started the upgrade from MPEG 2 the the new format . I've read some posts stating that Cox has set a DRM "no record" flag on everything but local channels, but the HD home run software is supposed to be DRM compliant, and should not ha a problem with watching, as opposed to recording, TV . I contacted Cox, who gave me the usual "nothing wrong at this end" speech.
Anyone have any ideas?
This is about this last straw with COX for me. Everything was working fine, and they go and mess it up, and deny having done so. . I have two PCs I occasionally use to watch TV . My Cox bill is already over $300 a month, and I am not going to pay them $20 a more or two more boxes..
Thanks Crystal. I did a rescan and also reset everything. I can still only get my local channels. I noticed after the rescan that all channels except the locals are now labeled "DRM," which they weren't before the codec change. Cox appear to have changed all the channel flags when it converted the streams from Mpeg 2 to whatever it is now. As I understand it, the HD homerun viewing app is DRM compliant, so it should allow me to view the channels even if the flag to stop recording is set. . This has apparently happened to a lot of HD homerun users during the conversion.
What town/state are you in? Seems similar to the changes made in OC.
I have left a detailed description at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll wait for a response.
