I'm in the Wichita KS market and have used a CableCard with an HDHomerun prime for several years. Starting yesterday morning, I lost all non-local channels. After talking with Tech support, we repaired my cablecard and did a channel scan. The channels came back, but they all now have DRM, meaning I can no longer watch any of them.
There are similar posts of this happening recently in other areas and in some (Tulsa, OK - Omaha,NE) It sounds like the DRM was later removed. How can I get Cox to remove the DRM for cablecards in the Wichita/KS market ?
- PS - I'm able to tune test channel 1987 without issues, however the "test" channel for the recent changes was not set up with DRM.
Same here, Wichita market CableCard user. DRM broke all the channels except local just a couple of days ago.
Thanks, Becky -- I'm also seeing the same issue in the Wichita area, and am anxious to be able to access subscribed channels again! Please keep us posted!
I had a call yesterday with two gentlemen. It was explained that the DRM change is permanent. During the call I asked about other markets and them having DRM removed after this change - they shared that the other markets have had DRM re-enabled and that DRM on CableCard channels is now a permanent, Cox-wide setting.
Today I canceled my Cable TV service. It was fun while it lasted. RIP CableCard.
Who did you talk to exactly? My BS meter is going off. Not by you, but by the two "gentlemen".
