Tv is connected thru dvr thru hdmi cable, no other connection no antenna, to my understanding the cable company is still receiving the channels in analog and broadcasting in digital

Cable


I don't think its been established if he is using Digital or analog yet. The symptoms sound like analog noise/signal strength.

I'm on Time Warner and if I don't subscribe to digital and use their box I'm still on analog. (I have a mixture in my house)

I would put the cable on the TV as it comes in the house, without the DVR. Snow on low channels means their problem. Then ask him what the signal strength and noise level is, and have him show it to you on his meter.

It has been established that his system is a private company, that does not have the type of system, that larger companies such as TWC, CC, etc have.
