I wouldn't mind the phone number to that idiot.
I called both the local store manger here which said:
"I haven't had one single return, only zillions of requests for them, and nothin but returns on the "DS" box"
(He really said "Zillions btw).
Also called the Manager at the distribution center that shipped me a DTT-901 to my local store when that damned Digital Stream DTX-9950 went up on flames on me and he said:
"He has one of the lowest carry-over's on that stock number"
I guess that RS-Slang for it still "on the sheets" because they couldn't "move it".
I forgot to ask about the DS, but I should have...
Gosh that DS (Reception) sure sucked...
/End Personal Opinion
I'd like to see some vote for things besides the Channel Master CM-700 and the Zenith DTT-901.
I had some hopes for the newer Apex DT-502 after seeing that the RF jacks were reversed (a clear indication of full redesign with a different tuner module) but that thread is now indicating heat related lock-ups...
