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,...

Totally agree with that and it will be interesting to see what happens when they do go all-digital. I haven't kept up with the all-digital stuff for years because it doesn't really apply to me, I did...

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...

That's all basically true, but you said "local stations must never be encrypted" and "always be available without an STB" (kind of like you can keep your doctor, etc. :)), both of which are simply...

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.

Very true, especially with the DVR letting us watch our programs days/weeks later. I almost missed the SVU episode because I gave up on L&O years ago and only found out the hour before it aired. I...

And I absolutely love crossovers, even when it involves a show I don't watch regularly. I guess I finally win for a change. :)

I get it, but scandals aren't the norm. And from what I've seen most athletes are pretty darn good at riding the gravy train, so they're smart enough to pick good agents. ;) You'd also have to know...

I didn't say they were popular, just that someone somewhere watches the stupid things. Just like someone watches the infomercials at 3:00 am. :)
