How do you remove channels from Timewarner cable list? On Directtv I could go through and select the channels I want displayed each time I open the guide. So if I didn't have HBO, when I'd open the guide it wouldn't even display HBO at all. I have TWC HD package with the scientific atlanta explorer box.

I don't think you can. I'd love the feature as well since half the stations are crap anyway.

Pretty sure that Time Warner doesn't have that capability. If they do, it would be news to me.

I don't think they have that option either, but you can designate "favorite" channels and flip through just them with one button...I think I have the 15 or so channels I watch regularly selected...

My opinion of Time Warner is getting worse by the day. They recently jacked my monthly bill by almost 70%. I called them to negotiate and the best they would give me was a 20% increase in fees and two LESS premium channels. The service has been sporadic lately, with Road Runner and phone outages. Plus there have been pixelation problems on the cable. And they do not have a phone app where you can program your DVR through your cell phone (a MUST HAVE feature for people who travel).

I have been shopping for alternative services and I am this/close to firing them. I cannot wait to salute them with my middle finger fully extended. With love.

I had them at my house today due to pixalation issues. They changed the cable that runs from my house to the junction box in a neighbors yard. Second time in about two years that they have changed that cable. First time it was going through a yard that did not have a utility easement and their dog chewed it. This time is was through a yard that does have a utility easement and their dog chewed it. They normally don't bury it worth a crap but they guy that came back today (yes, same day burial) did a pretty good job. We shall see what happens with the pixalation issue. If you have ANY issue, you need to call 244-0500 and make them come out.

This was very helpful! I called Time Warner and they had NO idea of how to do this, I had to make an appointment for a techie to come over...which I will cancel. But one question. Now that I know how to delete channels from Favorites, what can be done about the instability of the Favorites list? From time to time, channels are added and deleted by itself without my doing anything. Especially annoying are same channels with the higher channel numbers added. Do you know anything about this? Thanks.
