    I'm in Brooklyn with Cablevision I actually upgraded to two Premier boxes just so I can watch between Bedroom and Living room because of CV copy protection. I sold my HD that had lifetime and recouped what I spent on my 2nd premier (had one already).
    I haven't tried the latest 8300 cablebox from CV in a long time so can not comment on service now. But you can not beat the conflict resolution Tivo does with their clipping and ordering of season passes. I still do not think Cablevision can do that yet.
    FWIW

    I'm sorry I didn't get to this sooner. I have been a cablevision customer for years I have the Tivo series 2 dvrs and when I got the 3d HDTV last October I decided to get the Tivo Premiere. Unfortunately, Optimum/Cablevision has awful Cable Card services. You cannot access the On Demand content, I cannot get the 3D content. My wife and I are extremely frustrated.

    It does not matter what Cable company you are with, that is how cablecards work, one way communication so you can not get on demand. If you want on demand you have to have a box. PPV you could call and order then tune to the channel.
    I will gladly give up on demand for the benefits of Tivo and I have done that.

    Not entirely true. Comcast and Tivo have teamed up in several markets to have On Demand Working on Tivo Premiere
