Same service will be +50 cheaper.

Probably not the same. OOL is probably slower than what you're used to.

am pretty sure he will be happy with the $600 he will save during the first year, after that you can always go back to Verizon as a new customer And keep doing this as long as you want

Pretty much what I will do. Are there any hardware Pieces I should request/stay away from?

You'll get whatever the installer (who is a contractor, not a Cablevision employee) has on his truck. When I had my Cablevision service installed, the installer gave me the wrong box (HD instead of SD), which was dirty and had a cracked case. I had to drive 30 miles to a Cablevision store to get the proper box.

Unless he thinks the CV network DVR works like the Fios whole-house DVR. He'll be in for a rude awakening.

Even if she doesn't record anything good luck having anything you want recorded, recorded.

My mom has free dvr plus or what ever its called and it works only when it feels like it.

Does Southern Westchester have the DVR Plus, I thought they still had the 8300?

Install was both painful and painless. Not an overly happy technician on a NYE day just wanting to go quick and no chat. Was given a Samsung SMT-C5320 ST box, an ARRIS TM822 modem and a Netgear WNDR3400 router. The STB has the new UI(which my old company designed). They are yet to still add my international calling and the DVR+ was not set up at all. After calling the DVR service was added but its painfully slow to record a show or update the recorded list. Unmanageably slow. Hopefully its because it was only just added....

The misses loves the ipad app. she has not looked up at the main screen yet....

no your dvr+ is unmanageable slow because it's crap and it will always be like that.
