Out here in Los Angeles, certain channels will come through the dvr box only while other channels I don't need it. You can't get any channel at all on the other tv without the box now? I am not really clear if we are talking about this ONE (truTV) only.
As for FiOs, It seems I have heard only good things about it. So maybe 2 years is all that bad,
We're in a suburb of Buffalo NY. Recently Time Warner cable made a change to their channel line up. Now, I'm able to receive one of my favorite channels only on the TV that has a Time Warner DVR attached.
I called and they told me that to receive that channel, I now have to add a DVR to each TV that I want to see the channel on. Cost is $7 per month. I think they said the channel, TruTV, went digital. Is there any way to avoid getting a DVR for every TV and still stay with Time Warner? I checked into Verizon FiOS but they require a 2 year contract. Satellite is not an option, either.
