Denver/Boulder:

ABC is 1007

FOX is 1031

CSN - Couldn't find it.

 

Those are all locals and non-national channels though.

 

What do you have for these cable channels?:

TNT - 1404

TBS - 1434

USA - 1403

FX - 1403

FREE - 1742

Yes looks like these are national numbers so everyone is the same.

I wanted to mention that when I scroll through the all listings over 1000 there are a ton of sports channels in the 1300's.

 

One irritation is when I am trying to go to the over 1000 listings in my favorites list if I don't have a specific number I will hit the beginning of the hundred for that group. Like 1200, 1300, etc. That brings me in range then I scroll. But if I hit 1200,1300,1700,1800,1900 it take me to 1 rather than to the beginning of the group. I wish someone would fix that, please

Actually, Tivo changed my guide to the new lineup a month ago, before Comcast. So Comcast had informed them of the change. Of course, this messed up all of my recordings because the channels actually have not changed yet, though my Tivo thought it did. I had to file a support card with Tivo to get them to reverse it. That worked for a while, but Tivo changed to the new lineup last Friday and Comcast still hasn't switched. Comcast was supposed to implement the new lineup in my area yesterday (June 22), so I just ste up some manual recordings on Tivo to get me through.

However, Comcast didn't get the new lineup implemented on the 22nd, so I don't know whats going to happen now. Hopefully today.

The "HD technology fee" LOL -- Years ago now, the government mandated that all these networks be HD compliant to function with current technology...then they charge us for it?


Not true. The change was from analog to DIGITAL transmission (some low-power stations are still analog). Digital does not have to be HD. Many digital stations are just a single SD, or 6-8 SD's multicast.


You definitely make some valid points Andy. Yet it seems the point of the digital transmission requirement relates to HD capabilities; undoubtedly an amazing improvement over standard definition. The transition was legally required for "full-power" networks and seeing as our discussion here has largely involved major broadcast networks, that was my point. Perhaps the more relevant issue however, is that "cable systems" were NOT legally required to make the transition, yet they charge the HD fee while failing to provide numbers of channels in HD format (when the network feeds clearly exist in HD)! And that's notwithstanding the benefits reaped from bragging and marketing their amazing "Digital Tier" service. Meanwhile, the largest system in the country (Comcast® Xfinity™) remains well behind it's competitors for HD content in countless major markets. Excuses, greed, and the blame game shouldn't be their greatest attributes. The average consumer may be unaware of the nonsense at play, but many of us know better. Comcast has among the most brilliant business and technology professionals in existence....They have every resource and capability of meeting the reasonable and sensible demands of their customers, while continuing to turn impressive profits.

I just discovered the duplicate Favorites issue.  Contacted Comcast was told their technicians have been working "double time" to resolve this.  They then suggested using the Forum to search for a solution and then discover the issue has been present for more than 6 months!!

They have no intention of fixing this. They think they are doing us a favor when in reality, it is a pain to add one channel and get both the real one and the 1000 duplicate.

It's mainly a software bug since both channels have the same internal ID code. That was designed to work so that it would still show up as a favorite if it changed channel numbers. The software would need to be updated to somehow keep separate settings based on both the ID and channel number, and allow you to then separately choose which would be tagged as favorite.

This new channel thing is retarded. First off we need a option for only channels I get, second why are SD and HD channels even listed separately and if they have to be the guide needs a option to not show them. Having the same stations now on 3 different channels is in no way an improvement. I guess I'm still missing the much better guide options from Directv

Well not everyone has an HD TV. Some people have a big HD in the living room or theater room and an old SD TV in a playroom for the kids etc. I really don't see what the problem is. If a person wants to stay with the old HD line up that is OK. If you rather work with the 1000+ groupings work with those. The only time it is a problem is you like to channel search the whole channel guide.

Actually the only time I have a problem is when adding a channel to my favorites list. I only want add the channel I want to add and not the 1000 counterpart.
