I hate having to click links and I think you've done a great job since taking over for Fred, so just keep up the good work. :)

I have the letter and they are all SD channel numbers, except for HBO 2 at 1201. I suspect this is a precursor to going all-digital.

Aren't they just the SD versions on the old "analog" tier, like TBS 49, not the HD versions, like TBS 1049?

Using cash is throwing 1%-3% or more right out the window. Yes, I've had to make "the phone" call to cancel a card and get a new one twice in 40 years, but that was nothing compared to the hassle of...

I responded, but the wifi here is crappy and I lost it all. I'm too lazy to type it back in because I don't see us agreeing. Suffice it to say I still don't know what your specific beef is with the...

Sorry, but I completely disagree. Just because someone doesn't want or need some features doesn't mean others don't. And I could be wrong, but I believe DISH had 6 tuners first, then others followed....

My problem is how would we have known back then? Times have changed and it's very hard not to get caught these days. Then too, they weren't reporting as much because of the limited time and news...

TomCat, from my experience, most technology leapfrogs, so at any given time one service/device is arguably "ahead" of others. All I can really talk to is what my DVR can do. It has 3Tb of storage, 6...

If you get an answer, it likely won't stay posted long. IMHO, the original comment should have been deleted, it's no less a political statement than others that have been deleted. :) I don't really...

Thanks, Tom, but I can't take the credit, too many people have contributed to this forum over the years, including yourself.

Not a problem, TomCat. However, even in that context, I was simply trying to point out that there is no current rule that says they have to use clear QAM and not encrypt the locals. As you found out,...

Do you really think that's the reason we have SDV? I could be wrong, but my understanding is we'd still have SDV regardless. Since I started rebooting my TA every month or so, I haven't had any...

I don't believe that's true as long as they provide at least one free receiver when they go all-digital. AFAIK, Comcast is all digital and Charter, in at least parts of Wisconsin, went all-digital...

I no longer have his personal email address, but the last time I tried to get in touch with him a couple of years ago, I didn't get any response to multiple emails.
