Realignment Hits Former Adelphia Areas

The long-promised, long-awaited Time Warner Cable digital channel realignment appears to have officially spread to the former Adelphia systems based in Cleveland.

At least it happened at OMW World Headquarters in the early morning hours of this Wednesday, April 30th...and we have heard scattered reports that we're not alone.

There are still some glitches, at least in our personal experience. A couple of new channels listed aren't available, or are apparently not correctly aligned with whatever our digital tier should allow us to view - prompting the viewer to call customer service.

And Winston Broadcasting CW network affiliate WBNX/55 Akron's digital/HD channel is indeed in the channel guide (407) - but at last check earlier this morning, there was no signal at that channel location.

The channel lineup, at least at OMW World HQ, didn't come at the same time as an update of the cable box software to TWC's new "Navigator" system, but that appears normal based on what we've heard from others.

One other note: From what we've heard, the former Comcast systems in the Elyria and Mentor areas have not yet seen the realignment.

More as we sort through it all...

Everything here is the same as mentioned. However, my DVR no longer works. I get a message saying call customer service.

Do you know why Time Warner dropped Mtv Jams, Mtv Hits, and Vh1 Soul? Those were some of my favorite channels, I am really pissed that they are gone now.
