quote: I don't think you really understand how this works. This is primarily an issue with the cable lines inside peoples homes, not the lines outside. While TWC technically owns the lines in the homes, it is up to the customer to contact TWC if they are having issues, to replace them if needed. In most cases this is caused by people who have run their own cable lines in the house, and used poor quality coax. Again, TWC is not going to go into every single house and replace all the lines unless the customer reports a complaint. Also blaming cable boxes is hilarious, since all MSOs use the same boxes from the same manufacturers.
