TV viewers who use the VCR-Plus remote device and VCR-Plus numbers to program their VCRs will need to reprogram their remote devices starting today.
Some of the Cox Cable channels will have new numbers and unless VCR-Plus devices are reprogrammed, the VCR-Plus numbers listed in the TV schedule will not work.
Reprogram your remote device to the following lineup:
Northwest Cable News is on 56
Bravo is on 58
Turner Classic Movies (TCM) is on 65
HBO2 is on 68
HBO3 is on 69
Cinemax is on 70
Showtime is on 71
The Movie Channel is on 72
Playboy is on 77
As of Jan. 1, two additional changes will need to be made: WGN will be on 64 and the Spice channel will be on 76.
If you need help reprogramming your VCR-Plus device, call the Gemstar customer service hotline weekdays at (800) 432-1827.
