    PetiePal - I had the same issue and the solution posted in Burt's 3/3/07 was similar to what I had used to resolve - choosing a different channel lineup. Good luck.

    PetiePal, I think I had the same problem as you; the missing channels above 22 with what I recall is the CV silver package. After CV blamed it on the S3, TiVo sent me a replacement. Same problem. I finally got a TiVo tech that had me say "yes" to whether I got channel 1 during the guided setup. That resolved the problem. The CV channel line up card doesn't list a channel 1. How would anyone know that it was in the line up? Hope this helps.

    Sure they do. They have to. The CSR you spoke with is a moron.

    But feel free to move on over to FIOS.

    But full disclosure: Discovery HD is available if you get any HD channels, while National Geographic HD is only available to Premium Subscribers. Correct?

    Discovery HD is included as long as you have at the least the family package, 1 step up from the basic service (ch's 2-23), National geographic HD is part of the iO package, which if you get any iO box your gonna get that package. Cablevision is one of the few companies that doesnt charge you extra to recieve HD channels.

    Not entirely! :)

    I have the iO box, the SA8300-HD, but don't have the iO package - I only have Family. Every CSR I have spoken to says that if I want NGCHD, I have to pay $9.95 extra a month to get the iO Digital Package, which includes about 100 digitial channels and the NGCHD channel. So ... Cablevision IS charging extra to get an HD channel. (At least this one.) :)

    Not to defend CV, but they are charging you for the digital package, not HD. Most cable companies charge one price for the digital tier and then an additional charge for the HD channels.

    But, to split hairs, which I have obviously been doing, NGC in HD is PART of the Digital package, so you ARE being charged for this HD channel. I am not being charged anything extra right now to receive YES-HD, Discover-HD, INHD/Mojo, and all the local broadcast networks in HD, but if I want NGC in HD, I have to pay more money. This is contrary to CV's post, which states that Cablevision does not charge extra to receive HD channels. His post should be updated to state that Cablevision does not charge extra to receive most HD channels.

    But CV makes up for it on their $5 charge for "Premium Channels" on a 2nd Box.

    In my area CV is only charging $1.50 for the additional outlet, which includes the premium channels.

    Sounds like your being charged for an additional outlet. Prices are different in all areas.

    Depends on how you look at it. Because you have digital boxes you should have been given a digital package which means you would have that channel. But its seems more recently they have been allowing people to remove the digital packages to cut the cost of their bill. I'm sure if enough people bring it up they will move the NGHD Ch. in with the rest of the HD channels. CV likes to brag how they dont make you pay extra for HD channels.

    I'm being charged Premium Programming on Additional Outlets $5.00, that is in addtion to the:

    Digital Cable Box$6.03
    Remote Control$0.22
    For each box (I have two).

    If I didn't pay that I would not have any of the "Silver Package" premium channels like HBO on the box in the bedroom.

    If you use a universal remote, return the remote to CV. Or if you are using your TiVo (S2 or S3) to control the STB, return at least one of the remotes. If the STBs are both SA(which is very likely), one remote will control both boxes. At one point I had three boxes and no remotes for them because I was using my universal one. It wasn't the money; it was the principle.

    Cablevision finally got it together and it was worth the wait.

    1st installer spent 90 mins and left saying all was working. Unfortunately he did not check the channel line-up. No channels above 22.

    2nd installer spent 30 mins. Found the cable cards not registered.

    3rd installer got it right. I had printed instructions and we worked though it together.

    Love the Series 3 and am adding esata this week.

    Anyone want a Dual Tuner, 400MB, lifetime service Tivo?

    If you have Comcast in NJ (specifically the Union/Verona Comcast) you need to speak to the supervisor Robert Young. I was ready for problems (thanks to everyone here) and I refused a truck roll. They finally told me about Robert - the Comcast Supervisor who owns a Series 3. 3 weeks later and everything is working great!
