I have not used my surround system in a while and decided to use it last night to watch the Islander game. I noticed that even though my receiver lit up Dolby Digital, I was hearing the announcers from the front surrounds. Not sure if Islander games were always like this.
So just to double check, I switched to the Met game on SNY, and I also heard the announcers through the front surrounds, when I know for a fact it was not always like that in the past.
The Yankee game on YES did have only dialogue coming from the center speaker.
Was wondering if anyone else noticed this, and is it the networks, or is it Cablevision?

CBS also owns the former TV Guide Network, now known as Pop. Cablevision does not currently carry this channel.

Cablevision vs FIOS

My daughter just got her own place near pelham bay park. I offered to pay her first two years of "triple play".

Cablevision silver, free multiroom dvr + phone + 50mps Internet is $155 total after taxes and NO contract.

FIOS Extreme, quantum dvr + phone + 50mps internet is $212 total after taxes with 2 year contract. heavy taxes of $25 plus they charge $20/mnth for DVR

Is the PQ of FIOS worth $700/yr extra?

you're much better off posting your question in the fios forum where people actually have fios and likely had Cablevision before.

I had CV in Huntington , changed over to fios 1+year ago, and still have CV at the beach as fios is not/will never be offered in Montauk


my observations having have/had both... I can't see a diff in PQ... no diff in tel. service, and internet is def faster with fios... but I have 75/75 with fios, and whatever standard they give u with CV , which is prob 20/5...


if it was me, I'd go with the cheaper service... when my fios contract is up, i'll see who gives me the cheaper $$$ and go with the,,


I will say u get more stations with fios... but most of them I don't watch, so no advantage there

Not showing up yet in FIOS's OnDemand (ch 1000).


I purchased the DEAD50 streaming webcast to be safe, it appears it will be available through MLB.com or MLB.tv


I am still trying to figure out if I can view it through my TiVo Roamio.....


Good luck!

If you figure out anything more on this let me know.

I reached out to Cablevision about this today, 3 times but the wait was too long so I never got an answer.

I'm 16 months into my '2' years fios contract, when on Friday nite CV rep comes to door... he gives me a pretty decent deal the gold package with 50internet, and phone including something like 500 mins to a bunch of diff countries... bottom line 160bucks... that's about 50bucks cheaper then fios... they also will pick up the fios penalty for leaving early ...upto 250 bucks


I did see this morn, they are charging me 40 bucks to move the telephone number from fios to CV... well with one email to CV advising them I'm 'rethinking' moving view the 40bucks, they give me a one time courtesy of the 40bucks...


bottom line I'm getting CV best pack for approx. 50bucks less per month then fios...


I will add that the fios internet is prob faster, but won't be noticeable with emails, surfing/etc... and u do get a number of tv stations on fios that are unavailable with CV, but for 50bucks, i'll suffer...

Anyone switch from Directv to Cablevision?

I get my internet from Cablevision and my TV from Directv. The combined bill for these 2 services is close to $300, and more like $320 with a home phone. That's about $250/month more than Cablevision's current triple play. Of course that pricing is only good for a year, but still.

Now for me, 4K was the Directv draw, but I find I watch very little on Channel 104, since most of the 4K content are repeats.

So does anyone have any experience with the relative PQ of Cablevision vs Directv?

I've had both providers in question... Cablevision/Optimum (now owned by Altice) has decent PQ at 1080i.
I don't think you'll be able to notice a difference between DTV and Optimum cable.... no 4K cable channels AFAIK though.

Keep in mind, once Altice bought Cablevision/Optimum they initiated a $10/modem rental fee for new customers on top of the "sports" fee and "broadcast" fees.

There's a decent Optimum forum at DSLReports:

Moved to NYC Cablevision since systems often differ by city.

Redirect left in Programming.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.

You'll always get a better deal bundling, and that was one of the big reasons AT&T purchased DirecTV.

Is Verizon FiOS not in your area? From what I hear, they have the best picture quality in the industry, and the least amount of compression.

Many claim DirecTV picture quality is great, but in my experience, it isn't always. I found my previous cable company to provide a better HD picture than I get with DirecTV. Recently, I was in a hotel room in the Philadelphia area with Comcast, who is usually regarded as having horrible picture quality, and it looked great to me. Granted, they were smaller TVs than I usually watch.

My suggestion is see someone's picture quality who has Optimum/Altice in your neighborhood, since they'll be on the same system as you.

Yeah, no FIOS in our area on L.I. I followed replayrob's link to DSLReports and Cablevision didn't get too many complimentary reports.

I think a lot of it depends on what you watch too, in terms of picture quality and whether you actually need DirecTV.

I handle the HD chart, so you may want to check that to see what potential channels you'd gain or lose by switching to Optimum.

So I did the self install and I've got 2 issues. The first is video-passthrough with the Samsung DVR (whole house). The output resolution is only 1080i, 720p or less. I see no option for video passthrough. What I notice is that with the 1080i channels, the picture is comparable to Directv, but for 720p stations, Directv looks better.

I have my Directv DVR set to video passthrough and I know that's the difference. When I set the Samsung Cablevison box to 720p, the picture is then comparable to Directv at 720p.

The other issue is that the audio via the HDMI output doesn't seem to be working. I even tried using exactly the same HDMI input as my Directv receiver, and no luck. The only way I get audio is to go from the HDMI out of the box directly to the HDMI in of the TV and then use ARC. Going through my receiver gets no audio.

I'm not a novice with these things and I've never had this kind of issue with audio. So my gut is that there's a problem with this box.

But right now the more important issue is video passthrough. Any suggestions?

You're welcome. Everybody watches different things, and every provider has different HD holes, although with each update, there are fewer and fewer holes.

Optimum is missing some odd HD channels compared to other providers, but it may not make a difference depending on the content you watch. When it comes to HD premiums, they're in much better shape than other providers, especially Comcast.
