    Just ordered Mine.. will be here next week and the Cablevision folks are coming the 23rd to hook up the cablecards. The rep told me FLAT OUT that they have no idea if they will even work as they just were told about this "mysterious series 3".

    Lets keep this thread alive and post as we all get hooked up!

    Similar experience. Lady was insistant upon cablecards can only be hooked up to TV's. I faxed over a bunch of TiVo literature for her cause customer service really was clueless. We'll see Sunday!

    Hey all you Cablevision folks! Would you mind posting your location and which branch of Cablevision you're dealing with? I want to see if Cablevision of Hauppauge (NY) comes up anywhere in this thread as that's who I'll be deailing with when I'm ready to take the plunge on the S3...

    Thanks!

    I'm on Cablevision of Hudson County (NJ). Called this morning and scheduled the Cablecard installs for Saturday. The CSR I spoke with had no problem cutting the service order for two cards, mentioned I was the second call she had taken today for a TiVo Series 3 install. Remarked on the $800 cost.

    I ordered the S3 this morning with one day shipping. So I'm pretty hopeful it will delivered by Friday.

    P.S. Wilt Hildenbrand, EVP of Engineering for Cablevision, posted on a the Cablevision Yahoo group that they're working on getting their CSRs and field staff up to speed.

    I ordered mine today also. To bring the cards out (they have to "install" them) - even though they have not heard of the S3 - cost $60.00, monthly charge $13.98. Has anyone else been gouged that bad ?? I told the TIVO rep. and he said to report it to the FCC - they are only suppose to charge a "nominal" fee :mad: !

    I'm not a Cablevision subscriber, but my cable provider (Astound, part of Wave Broadband) told me today that each CC would run me $6.95/month, which is what they charge for their digital cable boxes. They also told me that the CC would not work with HD! :mad:

    I currently own a Cablevision HD DVR that uses 2 cablecards. Can I simply insert these cards into the S3 or do I need to order new cards? Thank you.

    You should be able to use the same cards, but Cablevision would have to reprovision them ("marry" them) to the Tivo.

    I'm not aware of ANY Cablevision DVR that uses Cablecards. What model do you have?

    (BTW, the credit card like SmartCard that plugs into your Cablevision set top boxes or Scientific Atlanta DVRs is NOT a Cablecard).

    I'm with Cablevision of Woodbury (Long Island, NY). I sent an e-mail inquiry to Cablevision regarding whether they support the S3. The response:

    Subject
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    Tivo Series 3 cablecard


    Discussion Thread
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    Response (Pamela W) - 09/13/2006 10:35 PM Dear Valued Customer,

    Thank you for your email. I understand your inquiry and would be happy to help you.
    Currently we do not support the Tivo Series 3.

    If you should have any other questions please visit us at [cablevision web site]

    Thank you for choosing Cablevision.

    Sincerely,

    Pamela

    I'm not sure one hand knows what the other is doing.

    He's probably mistaking the "Credit-card-style" cable "card" that slides into the front of the 8300HD.

    The Cablevision operator wouldn't take my order until I told her why I didn't want the 8300HD I have now...

    so I told her why..... BOY did I.....

    Oh yeah I have one of those too. That's not a CableCARD.

    I'm holding off on Series 3 until all of these minor issues are ironed out.

    What a shame though that the cable companies would try to stifle TiVo like this.
