I found the code. It's 0277.

That is a Scientific Atlanta code, so it should be available by selecting Scientific Atlanta and then code 0277, which might be a bit easier than selecting Other and scrolling through codes to 0277. Although, it's probably a lot of scrolling to get to Scientific Atlanta, so it might not really make much of a difference...

I just wanted to mention that it appears that Time Warner is now using a newer model of the DTA which uses an RF remote control so as to avoid needing a remote extender. This model would not be functional with the ReplayTV since the ReplayTV cannot control an RF remote control device. I didn't look at the model number, but it looked very similar to the IR remote control model. You can tell in the instructions very easily that it is RF remote contolled because you have to pair the remote control with the DTA. Anyway, I don't know what one could do to try to get an IR remote control DTA, but I just wanted to make sure that everyone was aware that an RF remote control DTA won't be able to be controlled by the ReplayTV...

FYI, TWC in the Hudson Valley (NY State) is still providing the Cisco DTA w/ IR extenders.. Just picked up three earlier this week. Report on working w/ 5xxx series to follow.

DTA has HDMI out (not Replay friendly) and RF out (this will work). Came with HDMI and RF cables, too.


Cheers!

Yeah, that's the same as my original DTAs, which I picked up three as well, and then had to exchange one that was turning itself off. The only problem I was having was that TWC is using the same remote code for all of their set top boxes, and I have an HD STB going to the TV where I also have a 5K recording using a DTA, so I had to put tape over the IR receiver on the DTA to keep it from responding to my controlling the HD STB. Some of the Comcast DTA's were nicer in that regard that they disable the IR reciever if the IR Extender was plugged in. But, adding the tape was easy once I located the IR receiver, which I could see through the vent holes on the top.

And, getting HDMI cables to boot was nice as well! It allowed hooking up a new HD TV without my having to purchase HDMI cables! And, getting three HDMI cables was even better (actually, 4 with the exchange)!

It's a very nice DTA! Certainly overkill, but very nice that it outputs stereo RF output as well as being 16x9, so I am really enjoying recording the "big three" networks in letterbox! By the way, I simply changed WiRNS to remap the analog "big three" network channels to the HD channels so that I wouldn't have to mess with my recordings on the 5Ks. It turned out very easy that way!

Never tried the HDMI cables, I think I should give it a try. I was thinking to look for new service provider but if this works I won't change it.
