Re: Capacity Issue
said by iansltx:They need equipment that can work at this extended frequency. None of their set-top-boxes currently in circulation are capable of handling 1 GHz. It's an expensive update, as Cox Cable can agree.
Why can't they just upgrade the system to 1GHz?
It's possible to only add premium channels in the upper spectrum and distribute new DVR's with 1 GHz tuners to these customers, but that is still quite a complicated endeavor and makes for very restricted limitations on channel lineups.
