Update by user Oct 18, 2012

As of today October 17th, nothing has been done by TWC to address the problem of re-booting the cable box. Each time I call they say turn in the box and get another.

A total run around.

This problem as you can see is happening all over the country. Sad to say they seem to be uninterested in correcting the problem.

Original review posted by user Sep 17, 2012

For about 2 or 3 months, I've had to reboot my cable box because when I use the remote it won't turn on, even when I press the power button on the box, it still won't......it works for 2 or 3 days, then I have to reboot again. I've tried 2 different boxes....(samsung and cisco) and get the same with both boxes. I live in Manhattan and have friends who don't live near me who have the same problem.......it has to be in their system.......any others here who live in Manhattan who have experienced the same problem?

I also have to reboot my TWC box every now and then. I feel we should all get a credit on our bill since we are not getting the service we are paying for.

same here. Have replaced boxes to no avail.

reboots needed every day or other day. they claim its my wiring now, bulllshit.

They are not able to deliver biugfree digital service and they are not accountable.

We have the same issue. We can't make it through a full hour of TV without the picture freezing and the box rebooting.

Total POS.

I would pay extra to get my 5 year old hardware back but they say it is no longer an option. They rushed to get their wifi out to compete with dish and neither company has a working solution.

Same here. I constantly have to reboot my box and it gets annoying.

I cannot believe how bad their service is. I used to have dish and it was so much better and cheaper. Unfortunately I now pay $60 more a month for less channels, box I have to reboot constantly, and terrible service.

The apartment I live in now would only allow TWC. I wish there was something I could do :(

Ever since the recent cable box upgrades the TWC box will freeze up, not respond... or if it does it would take up to 10 minutes unless I reboot the system.

This happens almost three times a week now whereas it would be once every 4 months before. Whoever tested this upgrade didn't spend enough time on it, it's obviously resource hungry.

The problem did start when they made a deal with Samsung re: cable boxes. someone messed up the programming of the system and hasn't tried to fix the problem. Unbelievable that they don't seem to give a ***....!!
