i plugged-in a 1TB HDD and tried the PVR function of the set top box ... it work properly with HD quality video, but it is only playable from the set top box ... format seems to be proprietary ... it does not allow scheduled recording however ... you can only record what you are watching, but it allows for time-shift recording, meaning you can pause live programming and continue watching to the point you left off

the only bad thing is that Pacquiao lost the fight, so I just deleted the recorded fight :(

This is a good alternative for us destiny subscribers. I hate skycable. Once destiny is gone, i will subscribe here. Although mas ok pa din price ng destiny since mas madami channels offered than this cablelink for the same price.

Just got cablelink digital all in one package. The SD digital channels are a lot clearer compared to the analog channels. The hd channels are impressive. Sayang lang kase nba premium tv is not yet hd. Fox movies hd, starworld hd, fashion hd, outdoor channel hd, nat geo adventure hd, and nat geo hd pa lang. Sana dagdagan pa nila ng hd channels like hbo hd discovery hd pati upgrade sana nba to hd na.

2K installation fee, additional 250 monthly for nba HD.

Yes, you are given 1 additional remote for the digibox. However, if you only subscribe to NBA HD, you don't need the digibox remote. You just press AV and you get to NBA HD already.

A few days after installation and my digibox has conked out. Indicator says power is turned on (green light) but it's not responding to remote - whether to power on or off, volume, channel etc. buttons in front also not responding. also, there's nothing showing. I just get a blank screen.

I've tried:

1. Unplugging power cord;
2. Changing HDMI cable;
3. Removing and re-inserting card;
4. Unplugging and plugging connectors at the back;
5. Changing remote control's batteries.

Wala pa din. Opening pa naman  bukas ng NBA. Kainis.

Naglagay ba ng another line for the digibox? Or they use the existing line?

Same line. It just passes through the digibox before going to TV.

I guess this means a splitter is still viable for the other TV's in the house to at least have analog SD channels. :)

Should be powered and at least on standby mode.

When my digibox conked out, snowy ang SD channels. I had to remove the connection to digibox in the meantime para mag clear.

I am currently subscribed to the All-in-one pack (with HD channels). Not sure if that's the correct term, pero basta ung HD package nila. I actually have no choice but to subscribe to them kasi sila lng accredited sa area nmin. They are also offering Cable Internet, but it is way too expensive than SkyBroadband and it offers no discounts on your cable subscription. Anyway, Coming from SkyCable (digital only) and Cignal (HD in my parent's house), I could make a pretty fair comparison. Hope this helps:

PROS:
1. HD Channel quality is on par with Cignal (1080i/720p)

2. HD package is more affordable than Cignal and SkyCable (comparing the high end plans only)

3. Digital channels are DVD quality just like Sky Cable's and Cignal's (Digital/non-HD)

4. Cablebox has PVR function (can record live shows via attaching HDD through USB.SkyCable's iRecord has additional fees)

5. Based from the last major PPV, HD All-in-one subscribers get this free. Cignal and Sky charges additional fees for PPV. Though I wouldn't know if this will apply to future PPVs.

CONS (a lot!!)
1. If you get the all-in-one, Digital and HD channels go through the Cablebox, Analog local and cable channels go directly through coaxial cable, meaning you have to switch sources on the TV everytime you want to watch local channels or HD/digital channels. Therefore, you can't really straight up channel surf, you have to have the two remotes ready for this. BTW, guys, gurus, help, i have a series 7 Samsung and it says in the specs that it is digital tuner ready, does that mean I can get some digital signals working through direct connection? Haven't tried though.

2. Since some of the channels are analog, picture quality is below par. I mean, I can do away with a stretched picture (analog channels converted to digital by Cignal and Sky), but displaying analog channels through a 46 incher looks like crap.

3. EPG function of the box doesn't work. No program guide/schedule. In this function, Cignal's box is the best since you can set the box to switch channels when a particular show you marked starts. Since the EPG doesn't work, it kind of limits the functionalities of the PVR since you can only record live shows, can't schedule recordings.

4. They don't have the best channel lineup. There is a lack of basic digital and HD channels. HBO, CNN, Discovery and Star Movies are analog, there is no ESPN (replaced by Fox Sports I think, which is analog). Actually, all the Analog cable channels really bugs me..
Comparison:
ESPN - Cablelink (none); SkyCable (Digital at least); Cignal (HD)
HBO - Cablelink (analog); SkyCable (Digital at least); Cignal (HD)
Star Movies - Cablelink (analog); SkyCable (Digital at least); Cignal (Digital)
Local Channels - Cablelink (analog); SkyCable and Cignal (digitally converted/upscaled analog)

5. Not so sure about this, based from ads, Fox Movies Premium HD broadcasts in 5.1 Dolby Digital. Now, I wouldn't know for Cignal since it doesn't really say in the channel information that it is outputting 5.1 Dolby surround sound, but comparing HBO HD and Fox Movies Premium HD on Cignal, there is really a significant difference in terms of sound quality, I'm not sure if it's 5.1, but it's better than Stereo (HBO HD). For CableLink, the channel info clearly says, the FMPHD broadcasts in 720p and Stereo only. Not a very big deal though.

To all other subscribers, I have several questions.
1. Are they going all-digital eventually? if yes, when?
2. Will they offer HBO HD, ESPN HD and Food Network HD in the near future? The HD package of Cignal has these channels and the difference in the MSF is just 90 pesos.
3. Will they upgrade their Box firmware so that the EPG (Electronic Program Guide) can work? I mean Cignal's EPG is not perfect, and not all channels are supported, but it still works, unlike CableLink's

hi guys, i just wanted to ask if you're experiencing the same issue as i'm having on the analog cable tv ... there's a horizontal thick white/blurred line on almost every channel ... the location and the thickness of the said horizontal line is not consistent (it varies on every channel, and some channels do not have it) - sometimes, it is on top, middle or bottom ... below are sample screenshots for your reference ... i've had this issue for quite some time but ignored it ... finally reported it to Cable link this week and they found out that the problem is affecting our entire building (condo) ... they said that they will come back to do further troubleshooting and possibly replace some of their equipment ... i just wanted to confirm if this is limited to our area - hopefully some feedback from other subscribers ... thanks

regarding my post above, Cablelink finally resolved the issue ... they had to replace an amplifier in the building and verify all cable connections ... their work took 3 days of isolation, and almost a half day to repair, but all is good now
