Woke up this morning to more HD stations - finally. I know have MSNBC, Lifetime, Bravo, E, Comedy,Spike, Fuse, more HBO stations and much more. It's about time - so happy. Now I don't have to watch SD anymore. All of my programs are now in HD.
It's strange, because yesteray I called the CS rep and he told me that I would not receive them for a few more months. Goes to show you, they don't know what they are talking about.

Yes, I am in a SA area and my town was one of the last towns in my area to receive them. However, Comcast didn't notify anyone of the change. I had to call a neighbor and tell her the news.

Thank you for the heads-up. We got those stations, too, with no announcement (No complaints though, thanks to you.) Comcast customer service never knows anything about the switch-over. I have a Cisco box, and was told in November at a special event for switching to digital boxes in our neighborhood, that we would get the "World of More" in February or March. Since then, no clue from anyone at Comcast on a schedule of when it will happen. Nice to get these FINALLY (really...it's 2012, and we had so few HD stations before)! I am assuming that this is not the "World of More" yet, because the interface is still the same??

You're very welcome.
This is NOT the new "world of more". That guide update 2.0 will only be available on Anyroom DVR's with the RNG 200N box for now. The rollout for all of the other dvr's will be rolling out some time over the summer, so they say. They will NOT give a timeframe for that, so we still have to wait unless you get the Anyroom DVR.
At least we now have the same amount of HD stations as West Palm Beach. They've had it for months. We were the last in the area to get them.

Anyroom DVR is not available in Boca yet. I just called today and was told it might take a few more weeks.
The only dvr's that are available in Boca are the RNG 200 HD boxes. I don't know about the regular digital ones.

That's the old box. I have the "newer" one, but am having a lot of problems with downloading the guide. I don't think it's because of the box. I think it's a different issue. I used to have the SA 8300HD. That was a more stable box.
I do know that they are having problems with the box they use with the Anyroom DVR too. That's the RNG 200N, but there is supposed to be a fix for that box, just don't have the dates for that.

JSH56 - Anyroom DVR IS available in Boca. If you call comcast they still might say it's not available depending on if you live in a HOA community or other factors, but it IS available in West Boca. You have to speak to the "right" person in order to get it.
