    On a completely unrelated note, my AOL TimeWarner cable is out here in Columbus, OH. Just makes me feel somewhat better than someone else is having issues elsewhere, even if it is in another state with another provider...

    Per @MediacomSupport on twitter, major outage in Iowa, working on fix, no ETA. They've been having all sorts of trouble recently, not sure what's going on.

    Since we're complaining about mediacom in here, i hate that they can't seem to get the cablecard thing right. They updated their channel mapping at some point and i found out the other day i've lost some of my local channels. No problem at all getting them through QAM tuning, but through the cablecard they don't work.

    To go along with this. Mediacom just jacked up my rates now that I am off the promotional rate. They offered a new 2 year contract for 118 per month (that includes my digital plus package) and high speed internet. What are other people paying?

    Granted I'm not with Mediacom...

    But I pay 119 a month with Charter for 2 Digital Cable Boxes and 5M High Speed internet. Hope that helps.


    If you're unhappy, call them, threaten to cancel. They usually sweeten the deal.

    Alarson, they told us to rescan all the channels; we did and all seemed well--until a few minutes ago!

    Instead Cyclone Power, let's say Mediacom Sucks at the RectumTech game

    Can't really rescan with a tivo\cablecard. All you can do is re-run guided setup, which i've done more than once now.

    Hardly, someone from OH already said they've lost their interwebs too.

    My wife has been calling in all night since her job is online - apparently a major fiber optic cable got cut somewhere and TV/interwebz is down all over the place (specifically mentioned Ames, Fort Dodge, Ankeny, DSM). Estimated fix time is 2AM.
