You can contact customer service here to request a new box, and you can follow the steps below to replace or upgrade your current box.

Replacing the SD Box

If you are currently with Charter Communications (now Spectrum), the SD boxes are being phased out and replaced with HD boxes at no additional cost to the customer. Charter Communications will replace the box with these steps:

  1. You will receive a letter in the mail explaining the switch and how it will be completed.
  2. Charter Communications will mail you the self-install kit with instructions on how to switch from SD to HD.
  3. Follow the instructions in the self-install kit to set up your new HD box.
  4. Return the SD box to Charter Communications using the label you have been provided. You can use either FedEx or UPS to return the equipment.

If you want to upgrade your old HD box to a new receiver, you can contact Charter Communications customer service via phone, online or by visiting your nearest Charter Communications store. Charter Communications will either provide you with a new box at the retail store or will ship one to you for self-installation. You can also schedule a tech to come to your home and change your receiver box to a HD box. If you are using a retail store to get the new box, take your SD box with you when you requested the HD device.

Setting Up Your New HD Box

Once you have received your new HD box, you can follow these steps to set it up:

  1. Connect your coax cable to the wall port and to the receiver.
  2. Connect the HDMI cable to the receiver and the back of the television.
  3. Connect the power cord to the receiver and plug it into the wall outlet.
  4. Install the batteries in the remote control.
  5. Use the remote to turn on the receiver.
  6. Turn on your television and open the menu to find "Inputs."
  7. Go to Charter Communications' website or your app on your phone to activate your HD receiver.
  8. Once the receiver is activated, you will see a welcome screen on your television, and you are ready to start viewing in HD.

You can start watching as soon as you see the welcome screen on your television. Be aware, it could take up to 20 minutes for your entire channel listing to load after activating your HD receiver. If you do experience problems, you can contact Charter Communications customer support to help walk you through the process or troubleshoot issues.

Ordering and activating your new receiver from Charter Communications is a simple process. If you follow the steps above, you will enjoy quality programming in HD in your home. For more information or support, contact Charter Communications customer support here.
