Okay... except for TWC's part in this... everything has gone very smoothly so far.
The unit went out and found all the analog and digital OTA stations(too many IMO,
) but then I had to activate the new and inserted cablecard... and TWC disconnected me twice and then kept me on hold for ONE HOUR and Ten Minutes before they answered me.
Then, at the end of the call... they guy tells me that he will send that department an EMAIL to tell them to activate the freakin card?????
So... TWC still left lots of opportunity to eff this up and delay my ability to get the new channels which I am sure I will be charged for starting today... ARGGGGGHHH.
Otherwise, the unit pulls in the OTA HD stations seemingly better than my Samsung T165, and it has a cool front panel display which shows the info and channel. Also, when you tune in the channel, there is an overlay which shows the incoming resolution, and other info.
So... other than TWCs part in all this, the Sony grades an A.
More to come tomorrow... hopefully.
