Just to give folks a sense of how hard it is to get something in return from Oceanic Time Warner cable and their corporate offices... All I'm trying to do is get my $26 back which started on June 6, 2012 and I'm still getting the same answers 3 months later. I've requested the Corporate CEO's email address but don't think they will provide to me... What a shame and let's see how they would be acting if they wanted $26 from me. Oh, that's right!!! It sounds like Credit Agency..... Crock of *** for sure...

See below email chain to get a sense of what you will face when trying to get a refund from these so-called Customer Friendly Corporations.

Warner and its associated affiliates. The situation boils down to this
, I deactivated my account on 06/06/2012 and was told that I have a
credit of $26 which was to be mailed to me within 4-6 weeks of
registering the transaction.

Needless to say, I had to return to the very same office on 7/16/2012 to
find out why I hadn't received my refund and was told by the same
clerk that she didn't know why I hadn't but lets redo the process
and get the money sent to me.

I called customer service on 8/3/2012 again to find out what the ***
was happening and was told that she could see that the check was upheld
in the credit office in which I replied, I don't care who, what,
when or where it is, I want my check to which she replied she was
doing the best that she can and that she left a note to the credit
department to contact me.

I received a voicemail from customer service on 8/6/2012 telling me that
a check had been printed and that it would be mailed immediately and I
should receive within 2 business days.

However, I received yet another voicemail on 8/7/2012 that the credit
department had submitted for the check to be printed but that it had to
come from the corporate office in North Carolina!?!?!

First, I get muddled word and second I get told that the check would now
come from North Carolina and it would arrive in another 4-6 weeks!

Seriously, that's a joke isn't it? You've got to be kidding me!
If the shoe was on the other foot and you were asking for payment then
it would have been generating delinquent interest charges since 6/6/2012
and I am about to the point in which I want interest included in the $26
that your company owes me.

That's nearly 2 1/2 months already. This is TOTALLY unsatisfactory,
frustrating, and quite frankly mentally stressful. You can be rest
assured that I will inform all of my military counterparts not to ever
deal with your company because of the awful customer service that I have
been provided for what is essentially a measly amount of money.

I DO NOT WANT anyone to try and call me but I do want conformation via
email that you have received this and are taking action.

Its been over 8 weeks since I was told that I was getting a refund. Where is my money at?

Nashville, Tennessee, United States #1332505


ME. STARTED. I've been fighting with them for a month to get my $65 back. I've called 4 separate times and I've been told the issue is being handled each time and I STILL have not been refunded.

I'm about to file a claim against them with my bank.

They've provided me with a refund ID number and Friday is the "7th business day" for my refund. I'm about to burn that *** office down to the ground.


I'm going through this exact same thing except they owe me $119.26 ... since January 27th 2016...

it's now August 1st 2016 and I'm still being told "it'll be there in 4 to 6 weeks" ...

nothing after nearly 7 months. ..nothing.

I'm dealing with the same issue since June 12 2016. Have you received your refund yet? This is *** me off & I'm ready to file a lawsuit.


The CEO of Time Warner Cable is Glenn A. Britt.

His phone number is 212-364-8200.

This disreputable company as owed me a refund of $52.45 since September 28, 2012. All my requests for payment are met with stonewalling and outright lies.

Including the letter from the president's office. He can send me a letter in 3 days, with the whopper that they were unable to reach me by phone but still refuse to mail e my refund


I'm posting this after redinag the reviews here and then experiencing first hand the difference on my own x920bt between this and a regular iPod cable used with the stock Pioneer USB cable. Technically, the bad reviews here are correct: You don't actually need this cable to use your iPod/iPhone with your Pioneer HU.

If you were sitting on the fence like I was about buying it though, read on: I do agree with the one star reviews that the cable is too short for what it costs. It is possible to extend it with both a regular USB extension cable and a mini-jack cable extender, but of course you have to buy those. So I knocked off a couple stars for that because this thing should be longer for what you pay. However, there are 3 things you need to know about using the USB cable that comes with your HU over this one with an iPod/iPhone: 1) Without this cable, you have to plug two cables in to your iPod/iPhone the dock connector, and a standard mini-audio cable.

With this cable you only need to plug in the dock connector. Minor detail but if it's something you are going to use every time you get in the car you'll find one connection better than two over time, I assure you. 2) You need this cable to get video from your iPod/iPhone. If you care about video at all, then this is your only choice.

One review mentions the video quality is so-so but I did not find that to be the case as with all videos on iPods/iPhones the source is everything and good quality videos looked perfectly fine to me; I'll agree that the Pioneer HU doesn't go a great job with marginal sources compared to other displays but that isn't the fault of the cable. 3) And most importantly as G. Ledesma points out in his review with this cable, you get line-level audio out, where with the USB cable/mini-jack you get audio that's amplified once already by the iPod/iPhone itself. Don't brush this detail off!

Having listened to both, same music, same player, I can tell you that you don't need to be an audiophile with the ears of a teenager to hear the difference. It is pretty significant, especially with music that's already lower-quality (like tracks purchased from iTunes prior to 2009). For this reason alone I found the cable to be a necessary purchase. In short, while yes it is pricey, and you can control and listen to your music without it, you are going to want it anyway.

I mean, not to defend Pioneer, but it is kind of a niche item they don't mass-produce, and frankly if you own an iPod/iPhone you already paid a premium for a product, so what's another few bucks for a cable? If it were longer I'd give it 5 stars, but that's it's only real fault.


Gee, looks like we are in the same boat. I cancelled my crappy service with Time Warner

(they throttle your service; you never get the speed you pay for and it was also down most of the day, EVERY DAY)

on June 11, 2012. After 2 months, I used their lame chat service (which asks whether you would like a transcription of the chat, and when you click 'yes' you don't get one) and was informed it takes 6 weeks. Well I passed math and 8 weeks is longer than 6 so I wondered when I'd get my refund. Of course I was assured it would be processed.

Another month passed and no refund so an email I sent resulted in a "we can't handle this issue via email, please call....." So I call and waste more of my time and am once more informed, "your refund will be issued after a 72 hour review, here is the confirmation number".....

2 weeks later, still no refund. So I call again. (Like I have nothing better to do with my time then talk with minimum wage high school drop outs with an attitude) and am informed their computer shows an "equipment issue" which I respond by stating I returned the only piece of equipment, a modem and received a receipt from the guy behind the desk (I'm not ***, I know full well if you don't document by getting a receipt, they'll *** you over, given the opportunity). Well, yet another 'customer service rep' with an attitude tells me my refund will be processed. (Yeah, I've heard that before).

I filed a complaint with the FCC, BBB and my state representatives requesting they immediately submit legislation to penalize utility companies that fail to process refunds within 2 weeks. They were at my house to disconnect the cable within 5 minutes of my leaving their office so I think they can handle sending a refund check in 2 weeks.

Just how much patience should a customer have?

Now I will no longer have sympathy when I see someone show up at a business and start shooting. Though I wish they would start with the CEO's and work their way down the executive ladder.

This "American exceptionalism" we've heard about as well as how corporations are better than government is total bullsh*t.
