CBS & FOX are available through OTA, broadcast from the Empire State Building.
Some people on LI can also get WTNH OTA. They are a ABC affiliate from CT. You need to point a VHF antenna about 32 degrees.
There are SOME areas on LI where Cablevision is broadcasting MSG, FOX SPORTS and HBO in HD. These channels will be recognized by any HD receiver, BUT NOT by a cablevision digital IO receiver. Plug your cable line into the cable/ota input on your receiver and do a channel search (Tell your receiver it is an antenna). Hopefully you will come up the stations. If you don't, there is nothing you can do except get a dish. Cablevision does not claim they offer the service, but they send it out to support their Wiz stores.
Cablevision HD channels:
61-1 (Fox Sports)
DirecTV has HBO-HD, Showtime & HD-Net.
Hope this helps,

I just got an HD receiver this week and tried to get those HD channels on OOL. I did find them but my question is the way to hook this up. I tried a splitter on the end of the OOL coax and the cable modem worked fine but the receiver wouldnt bring anything back anything after a rescan. Works fine when I go straight in to the reciever without the splitter but i want to use both at once if possible. Any suggestions ?
