That's cool! I don't think there's anyone here from the Nashville or Murfreesboro areas though

Argh....not Memphis....

I thought it would have been placed in locations that have TWC Fans, so we could give them feedback and stuff.

Good luck to the system, and I envy those lucky viewers in Tennessee!  I hope the Intellistar HD will come to Massachusetts very soon! :)

I am not sure what gave you that idea. Select markets were picked and the community here will be monitored for feedback. They aren't placing the beta sites based on our location

Yeah they were when they beta tested the current SD Intellistar version back in 2007. tpirfan28's area was one of the headends to receive the upgrade

No one here lives in Nashville AFAIK. It would have been nicer if they tested it somewhere where a lot of us live in so we could debug any issues. That's what they did with the IntelliStar v.2 as stated, as well as the original HD STAR in New York.

Yea, that's what made me think that, Martin. :bleh: I knew they had done it before with a previous STAR.  :yes:

In the near future will there be a timeframe to when the beta will end? i know i might be asking too early because the beta just started recently.

Correct.  Mine might have been pushed toward the top since it was a fairly new unit (installed just a year and a half prior).  I couldn't even test this time even if asked because I don't even have TWC HD yet...

If TWC really wanted us to debug this STAR, they would have put one in Philadelphia and other places with concentrated TWC fans. It's up to the headend to report any major issues and what not. I am positive that they will take our input into consideration as well :D

TWC HD is available in Philly and a lot of its N&W suburbs that have Comcast, including Bensalem.

i would of thought Boston was a beta city, they've had TWC HD since it's launch in 2007.

(Boston transitioned in December 2006)
