    Southern Connecticut Cablevision now has WFSB-HD on 701

    Cablevision has finally plugged one of my pet peeves. We now have Hartford Channel 3 in HD. We had previously only-had NYC Channel 2 for CBS. This is good because NFL-AFC Football is on CBS. More times than I like to recall, I ended up watching the standard-def Ch-3 to see the Patriots play...

    Fox has gone-missing on CV in Metro New York...

    CV has announced that several channels (NY-5, NY-9, Fox News, Fox Business News, etc.) have been withdrawn by Fox/News Corp. They are in some negotiation where News-Corp is attempting to double their fee to CV. For some time, in Connecticut, we have been getting Hartford 61 (DTV 31) instead of...

    HD channels for OTA stations...

    There is some wisdom in the crowd here, so I want to ask a question. Setup: When CV added NewHaven-8 to its HD-set, it was in the middle of the CV squabble with ABC/ESPN about WABC-HD. Channel 8 is still on the HD-list. Also, CV long-ago substituted Hartford-61 for NewYork-5 for FOX on its...

    NBC IPTV for the Olympics

    On Sunday, I was stuck in a place where there was no TV, but they had Internet access. I went to the NBC Olympics website and was surprised to find a live feed of the CDN-USA Hockey game. For some reason, they wanted to know that I normally use Cablevision (I was nowhere near home) and then a CV...

    Use of OTA to augment CV

    One of the issues with CV and the NFL is that they use an NYC channel for CBS-HD. That means that every time the Jets & Pats play at 1PM, only the Jets are available in HD. A question: Is anyone having success pulling in WFSB with OTA in Shoreline Connecticut? antennweb.org is hideously...

    After 'turning on' Web-access of DVR...

    I noticed something interesting. It could be coincidence, so I will ask if others have seen it too. Ever since I did the 'one-time approval' for my DVR to be accessed through CV's web-access, the DVR has done some strange things. First, every now and then, it separates one recorded program...

    QAM stuff on CV...

    Another QAM question from me. Yesterday, I got RTV on 79.743 ('A-Team' was playing). It doesn't come through on the Cable box:confused: on CV. I looked again this morning and saw something different. What is going on with these QAM channels?

    QAM channels in clear on CV

    I want to ask about CV's intentions with QAM channels 'in clear' (no cablecard needed). Knowledgable folks have advised that CV is committed to 'Basic Cable' in clear. That includes some analog channels and some QAM channels in clear. Recently, CV removed NY-5 from both analog and QAM-clear...

    My DVR expander device

    I read about the Western Digital My DVR Expander 500 GB device. It sounds like a cure to a problem with the Scientific Atlanta 8300HD DVR device that Cablevision uses. Some reviewer have stated that it gives 60 hours of additional disk-space for HD programming. Since HD programming is now...
