I have mediacom and have a DVR and HD cable package. When i record a program no matter the channel and then go to watch it at a later time it is always really choppy and you can't even watch it, anyone know what the problem is? besides the fact that mediacom is terrible. BTW i only have mediacom because i live in an apt with free cable so i only have to pay difference which makes it pretty affordable. Thanks in advance.
I would guess it is choppy when it records it so it records the choppyness.
Just call mediacom and have them send someone out
This may be it. We don't have a DVR but our channels are often choppy (service through Mediacom). It apparently has something to do with the fact our street gets a really low (negative) signal. Which they promised to fix a year ago, but. . .
As a general rule and by my experience, MediaCom DVR's aren't exactly the best things around.
I've had 3 replaced in maybe 2-3 years.
Call them and tell them you want a replacement.
You might have to go down and exchange it yourself. They've allowed me to do that - saves the time and trouble of a service call.
You're doing better than I am. My Mediacom DVR's have had a lifespan of a few months.
Is your DVR a Pace brand, silver in color? I had a tech tell me those are garbage and they're always replacing those. I'm guessing your DVR is bad, though you might have a bad signal too. They might insist on sending someone out to check the signal if this is your first call.
