It's still in the box!
Should I get all new DirecTv HD equipment or call Cablevision for the Triple Play?
If I move to Cablevisino should I get a HD Box or use the CableCard?
OK....decided to go to Cablevision.
Room painted, new rug is in, Bose 3.2.1 Theatre system is set up (using Component Cables).
DVD'S look and sound great.......as my wife said "now we can see the pattern on the neckties".......every once in a while I jump up thinking something fell in another room, but it was the DVD.........
Cablevision is scheduled to come in Saturday for the install.
They are doing a 3 room setup. They shoud be bringing 1 HD-DVR box (I said I wanted SA-8300) and 2 HD boxes (I told CSR rep I had 1 HDTV and will be buying 2 more.......well someday I will!) regular TV"s there for now.
During the call the CSR said they sell HDMI Cables for $9.95 and the installer would bring it.....I told her I wanted it. If it is crap I wasted $10-if it works, it works.
To all out here.....anything I should mention to/ask/demand from the installer? Such as "take a look, I just spent 3 Grand on a TV and speakers-please run new cable from the poll!"
Did I do the right thing buying their HDMI cable? Should I buy another HDMI Best Buy so I have it on hand and simply return it if I don't need it?
Thanks in advance.
