Time Warner Cable Says It's Deprogramming My DVR From Afar

Seth gets the pleasure of rescheduling all his DVR settings thanks to an update Time Warner Cable is rolling out.

He writes:

I just received the attached letter from Time Warner Cable informing me that, due to some fantastic new programming guide updates they’re rolling out, they’ll be deleting all of my settings, including all my DVR scheduled recordings. Meaning if I have any one-time recordings scheduled or series scheduled to be recorded repeatedly (over a dozen), I’ll need to write them all down so that I can go back and reprogram them after TWC is finished improving my life. I believe this is what they’re talking about when they refer to “The Power of You.”

Hopefully Seth will be able to look at this as a new beginning rather than a needless chore assigned to him by a clumsy cable provider.
