said by ilsno :If and when Cablevision starts using SDV again they will probably allocate much more Bandwidth to SDV than before and not as many channels will be SDV.
I personally hate SDV because of the frequent "channel not available messages" that appeared. If I am paying 80.00 a month for a package of cable channels they better darn be there when I tune in. I was close to dumping Cablevision for Direct TV because of all the headaches with "error 125- channel temporarily unavailable" on many of the showtime and starz channels that used SDV... Cablevision just has not perfected the technology to warrant its use and I am glad they dropped it. If it returns and I still get those messages, Im done.
