Please remember, in no way am I giving up my D* sub. I had the Cablevision HD DVR put in today and it was a pretty poor performance equipment-wise. The guy that came out had a bunch of banged up DVRs in the back of his truck and that was all he had. First one wouldn't boot up properly, second one wouldn't record, a dialog box came up and said there was a problem with the HDD. The third one worked. Big ugly DVR! I hope this gets settled tonight so I can return this thing tomorrow.
Anyone who has problems with our GUI should check out CV's. Terrible. 4:3. Haven't watched anything on it yet. Only plan to use it for the Yankees' games.
I didnt go that route!!I went to a Time Warner Center here in Manhattan and got a brand new HD (NON DVR) Samsung box..NEW In the Box and selefane wrap in it..I'd never take anything from the tech's truck!!...Does Cablevision have Store outlets like that??? I'd trade that sucker in if it looks beat up, check & see if they do if your not happy with what you got......you could trade up and get a brand spanking new stuff instead of something slipping & sliding and wedged inside the techs truck..We may be in the long run for this dispute..I'd rather be happy with what i got than seeing a shoe print
attached is a pic from Engadget.com and this is the NON DVR HD box Time Warner gives out in Manhattan..
