reboot cable box: Time Warner Cable Reboot

The Time Warner Cable Reboot

Since this website began in 2010 we have noticed a common ‘suggestion’ from the fine folks at Time Warner Cable support.  REBOOT!

Recently Time Warner Cable / Spectrum pushed a software update to our DVR box.  We could not help but notice that when we clicked on the ‘settings’ button on our remote, there was a new OPTION. . .  ‘Reboot Set-Top Box’.

The ‘MAGIC BULLET’ – reboot

Before software is published it needs to be ‘debugged’.  In plain English this means finding and removing  all problems.  Time Warner Cable and Spectrum are too lazy to do this.  They know you will be calling them about the numerous problems you encounter and it is much easier to tell you to ‘reboot’ your DVR than it is to actually fix the problem.

In addition to the ‘Reboot Set-Top Box’ issue, the latest Time Warner Cable / SPECTRUM DVR box update has added extra steps to the process of viewing your recorded programs. Stay tuned – more to come . . .

Frequently, when I select multiple episodes of the same program to record, and go back later to watch them, the DVR listing shows the correct number of programs recorded. When I click on the list then next screen shows me all the FUTURE episodes that can be recorded and nothing about the ones I just recorded. Today, I wanted to watch a new episode of a series that was recorded automatically yesterday and what shows up in the listing is the wrong program entirely. After numerous calls to TWC I receive the same response – we’re aware of the problem… Read more »
