Spectrum Cable TV Service going all digital 10/9
Posted on Oct 2nd, 2018

October 2, 2018

To: All Forest Ridge Property Owners

 

Subject: Spectrum Cable TV Service going all digital 10/9

 

Good Afternoon,

 

By now you should have received a letter from Spectrum regarding your cable tv service. (a copy is attached here for reference)

 

Effective October 9th Spectrum is converting to all digital in our area. Here is a summary of how it affects us.

 

*** Overall any tv connected to the cable must have a “digital receiver” (typically a “cable box”). Any tv connected directly to the cable Will Not receive any programming beginning October 9th . ***

 

  1. Per our “bulk” contract with Spectrum each owner is already allowed one (1) Spectrum HD cable box at no cost.
  2. Per the second paragraph of the letter each owner will be allowed one (1) additional Spectrum HD cable box at no cost for a period of one year. (after the one year period a monthly fee of $12 will apply.)
  3. Every additional Spectrum HD cable box will be charged to you at $12/month

 

Alternatives to paying for a $12 box:

 

  1. If you are renting an Spectrum HD DVR to record your shows this functions as “digital receiver” and since you are paying for it, it does not count as your “free” box (see item 1)
  2. Since you already have internet access via our “bulk” contract and a no charge wireless modem, you can use alternate “digital receivers” and stream all channels to the connected tv (s) using the Spectrum app.

Alternate “digital receivers” include a Roku box, a Roku TV, Xbox, and several others listed on the Spectrum website and log in to “My Account”

 

In Summary, any tv that already has a “cable box”, DVR, or other “digital receiver” connecting it to the cable is all set. Any tv currently connected directly to the cable will need some form of “digital receiver” as outlined above.

 

Hope this helps to clarify the coming change.

PLEASE SLOW DOWN!!!
Posted on Feb 4th, 2013
There is a lot of pedestrian traffic at Forest Ridge, with owners, guests, kids and dogs out enjoying the property.  In the winter, early darkness and the road edge snow banks require extra caution when driving on the property.  We have had a number of near misses when cars traveling at an excessive rate of speed come upon a walker, runner or bicyclist.  While pedestrians and bicyclists should take care, it is the responsibility of each driver to take all steps necessary to avoid accidents.  Pay attention to the road and pedestrians and bicyclists and travel at a reasonable speed.
 
Please remind your guests/renters that the speed limit is 20 MPH on the property and to use extra caution as we want everyone to be able to enjoy our property.
 
Again, PLEASE SLOW DOWN. Thanks
 
Internet and Cable TV at Forest Ridge
Posted on Feb 3rd, 2013
 
Spectrum (formerly Time Warner) Internet and Cable TV is now available to all owners at Forest Ridge as part of the services supplied by FRPOA at no additional cost.  All Forest Ridge Owners receive “Extreme Internet” service.  Our cable TV bulk service includes “basic”, “classic”, “digital tier” and “Showtime,” as well as most HD channels and digital music (over 300 channels).
To receive all of the channels you must have a digital or HD cable box from Spectrum for each television where you desire the added channels (not required to receive “basic” & “classic”).  Our contract provides a single digital or HD cable box.  Additional boxes may be obtained from Spectrum for a monthly fee.
Note: The Showtime chanels must be activated on a unit basis. Because of some content, TWC does not turn on Premium services until requested by the unit owner. Call l channel listing here.
 
While there is no additional cost for internet and cable television, you do need to establish a Spectrum subscriber account.  If you are a current Spectrum subscriber and already have the required equipment, there is nothing that you need to do.  Note, if you feel that your equipment needs to be updated or replaced you should be able to exchange it at the offices listed below.  (The current equipment is either a simple cable modem or an integrated wireless modem and router).
 
If you currently do not receive Spectrum internet, you will need to get a cable modem from Spectrum (this is a no charge item per our contract).  The self-install kit including the modem is available from the offices listed below.  You can also call and request a kit be mailed to you.  This method works sometimes but often the operator does not understand "bulk residential contracts" such as ours.

ATVs and Snowmobiles Prohibited in Forest Ridge
Posted on Apr 2nd, 2009
Please be aware that the use of all terrain vehicles and snowmobiles is prohibited within Forest Ridge by the Master Declaration for the Forest Ridge Community. Unit owners are responsible for ensuring that their guests (including renters) comply with this and other rules within Forest Ridge. Please be sure that your guests and renters are aware of this restriction. Should an owner or their guests or renters violate this prohibition, the owner may be subject to fines and suspension of Sports Club privileges. Junior Associations may have similar restrictions. In addition to Forest Ridge rules, New Hampshire law also regulates use of all terrain vehicles and snowmobiles. Please read NH State Motor Vehicle statute 259:126 in addition to the 2009 New Hampshire Off Highway Recreational Vehicle Laws Digest, both of which are available at the Lincoln Police Department.
