I don't live in your area but I can tell you that I have TW in N.E. Ohio and I did not have any issues with my install, get all my HD and HBO. These issues that you read about seem to be starting to slow down as more and more people have the S3 installed. Cable companies are learning and getting better at understanding how to do the installations. Now I can't guarantee you won't have problems but I believe odds are on your side. BTW, I have a line of sight problem with D* where I live which is why I have had cable for the last 2 years. The S3 has been just wonderful for me compared to the pos the cable company gave me.
