I'd would like to know if anyone in my area is getting HDTV from Cablevision, I read that it is possible, but Cablevision offers no help.
Also would like to know if OTA is possible where I live. Can you get the major networks in HD from cablevission or just MSG, Fox, and HBO?
One last question: Is there an STB that you can hook up both cable and OTA antenna. I have not bought one yet, and had 2 in mind: DST3000 and Samsung SIR-T150

Thanks for your help

Lou

I am not in Central Islip, but I can confirm that the DST-3000 can switch between cable and OTA through its menus. So far, Cablevision does not offer the major networks in HD format.
