This morning in Oakville I have lost access to the western HD channels. ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox. 717-720.
I have been getting these for years. Is it just me or has Cogeco changed their package again?
Thanks.

Happens occasionally, one of our receivers lost 'em a few days ago (this happens with all channels, not just HD west).

Call in to Cogeco and they'll sort it out. You might need the S/N of the affected receiver on hand.

The problem isn't with the receiver itself. The receiver simply loses its authorization for certain channels on Cogeco's end.

Not sure what causes it.

(But the Pace is nice)

It actually is the receiver that has lost the autho/encruption key, those are stored locally, if the DCTs had to request every channel autho every time a user changed channels we would have some serious bandwidth being chewed up.

Learn something new every day!

But still, it's not really an "issue" with the receiver (ie. you don't need to replace it). I've had this happen at least a few times on all of our receivers.
