Anyone find a discrete ON/OFF. They fall asleep so you can't keep them on.

Any info on this Altice service? They bought Cablevision and will be replacing the Optimum name and service with Altice. I don't know anything about it other than what I've seen in recent commercials. They make it sound like it's an all in one cable box and internet service. I hope not.

You're correct and I hear the additional cable boxes are access points. Sounds awful.

Yup thats what I hear too. Was going to post to see if anyone had more info.

Sounds like what you'd get if you incorporated Eero into cable boxes.
Router is built in also.

This is going to be a huge clusterf%$^. The overwhelming majority of my service area is Cablevision. I'm either gonna get a huge boost in revenue or a job bagging groceries and leave the stress behind.

Waiting on a way to bridge these things since we like to use a proper router instead of their junk. We encountered one a few months back and had the installer swap it for a standard modem and regular boxes. Seems like they're pushing them now so will need a workaround for using our own routers.

No way to bridge? This keeps getting better.

Any more info on Altice One?  I have yet to encounter it but have received emails from clients saying they are looking to switch.  I know nothing about the service still.

Spoke with a cablevision tech and they say there is still no way to bridge the router or bypass it to use a proper router. They told us the only way we can own the network is to get a second modem that will be for internet only and keep the A1 separate for video services.

As far as the video service and boxes themselves, I hear they arent reliable. Spoke to a few users and have read some DSLReports topics on multiple issues.

We've told our clients to stay away when we do a fully integrated system. We install equipment that will give them all the streaming sources they need so aside from the updated GUI I don't see the benefit.

I encountered Altice for the first time last week. WHAT A MESS. No bridging, no discrete on, getting to program guide takes 3 button presses, response to channel change takes a long time. And her client box keeps loosing its programming and reverts to only passing channels 2-21 even while the server box still receives all channels. Thankfully this was only a hang and bang for an old customer.

I encountered it yesterday for the first time as well.  I can say one thing that I liked and one thing only.  The TV codes for programming the remote are only 1 digit.  LG is 2, Samsung is 5.  Other than that, no thanks.  Client insisted on plugging his Apple Router into it so he could have wifi where the Altice One could not provide it.  It worked but I told him this will likely cause issues.  I don't know Apple Network gear well enough to know if it can be put into just an AP mode.  I suggested he get Eero or something similar to run as APs if he wishes to have it setup like that.
