I've given up trying to get it to work. POS. I wonder if CV even tried it with XP.

dont go overboard trying to break the external display detection.. they just sent an email to testers saying they will be working on improving the check so it doesnt give false positives as much, so dont waste your time trying to break it since they are still working on that detection and anything you do find will get patched probably when the release their next update which will include dvr recording ability and the ability to change your actual box's channel with a remote in the app among some updates...

based on the notice, dont expect this to go public any time soon...

Will they fix the broken check for Silverlight? The CV program says I DON'T have Silverlight and refuses to run but I DO have Silverlight.

Uninstall Silverlight and let the CV program reinstall it.

Did that. Didn't work.

I just wish the app didn't go into full screen mode. It would be nice if I could resize the app so that just the smaller video player was running so that I can watch it while doing other things on the computer.

dont expect it.
you know, anything that is "iO" related is always full blown "in-your-face" at all times.

What is really annoying is that this landing page is available with a simple search.

Did I miss the part where they say it won't work for you unless you are invited or until the go live date?

I went through the tests and install, and everything is fine until you log into the app. Really Stupid.

BTW, I called support, and they said this is going to be active on Feb 9.

Did they stop trying to make an Android App with streaming?

It still shows up for me on the Optimum.net home page in that little headline carousel. It does say "customer trial."

I must admit, watching the pregame show using the Optimum App for Laptop is pretty neat.

My PC works fine. It's Optimum's app that's crap.

It also works on my older 32-bit MacBook Pro (Intel Core Duo). I should try it on my almost 8 year old Dell XPS laptop to see if it works, just to see if it works on the Ballmer Operating System.

I live in central NJ and it works like charm on 27" iMac. It is as good as having another STB for a 27" TV. Not bad.

I'm beginning to think that it just doesn't work well on Windows.

Maybe I missed this in this thread, but do you have to be at home to use this service, once it is released and working?

You have to be behind a Cablevision modem for this to work like the rest of the Optimum Apps.

must be on home network to work. I AM on the home network. :/ I guess you have to be directly connected to the modem?

then the point of this being available only for laptops is moot.

Contact tech support and they will update your information. It will take under 5 minutes.
