Anthony,

I have the Silver iO package. Currently I get SHO-HD although I don't subscribe to the Showtime package. Do you know if the Silver package will get the CMAX & TMC HD channels? How about inHD, do you know what package/tier is required to recieve this?

I would assume that you will get Starz-hd and INHD...SHO-HD is only to customers who pay for that premium service...Right now they're just testing, so maybe that's why you're seeing it.

I have the gold package...I'm getting everything..Posted Image

This is nice, but all this is going to offer is a repeat of the movies already on. I would much rather have Cablevision give us NBC and ABC in HD. Please Cablevision, listen to your customers!

That would be the FIRST time that a cable company has listened to customers. I can't understand how these companies get away with such horrid customer service. "Yeah, we'll be out sometime on Wednesday. Make sure you're there." They sure like to hold you hostage in your own home. I had a recent bad experience getting HD installed, so I'm still somewhat bitter. But I did get a $40 credit to my account because they are such idiots (had to show the technician how to get into the setup menu to set the box to 1080i and also had to convince them that no, hooking an S-Video cable up wouldn't fix my problem of getting a 480i signal instead of 1080i).

I am a little disappointed with Starz-HD, they show a lot of NON-HD movies and these are even newer movies like "The Recruit"

Ken, I agree. Starz is the premium channel with the best image usually, so I was totally suprised when Blue Crush was in 4:3 last night..Posted Image ...I'm thinking that because they're fairly new on the HD scene they're still getting there act together...
