Mark1_M,

The "fees" you are seeing are the result of regulations dictating how we bill customers for service. The reality is that rather than selling at the "published rate card" fees, we sell...

RichUF,

Your memory must be worse than mine, but you've been on the list nearly since we started. I've deleted the PM ages ago, but you were one of the anchors.

Flashman,

Can you give me more specifics on the location? Did you do a "hard reboot" (pull the plug and repower the box) or just a front panel reboot?

Couple points:

1) 8300 multi-room is still sort of "vapor-ware" at this point. It will happen, but not soon.
