mgjoeviterbo: sorry, family was hogging the www while I slumbered through the second game, so never saw your request. Someone (posted above) mentioned how the new TV remote might have a (.) button, or, in my case it's a (-) button, to select channels like 117-2.
Hard to say what channels your TV should find on auto-scan. It's my impression this is raw digital feed, so not very tidy. I look forward to having order and a proper guide (though Comcast guide looks 2nd best as opposed to DirecTV version).
I asked for input in post #2862 on the official 3412-3416 thread irt install ... would appreciate any / all suggestions:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...&&#post9535195
Truck roll (at my expense, why I don't know ... it's to install a trap
, per the lady at Ccast). What should I expect the tech to do? Will he: check pole, check cables, splitters, signal strength?
I did not agree to a $30 box install, and have mixed thoughts on that. Maybe it'd be $30 well spent? Or, maybe (if lucky) not needed, and I save the fee for when I need a svc call? Luck of the draw?
A benefit would be the tech brings the box, and provides an up and running system. But, if the firmware loads overnight, it all changes 24-48 hours later? So, what's to gain versus svc call later if needed?
And, why can't I have the box before instead of after the appointment?
Thanks in advance,
