Well, I still have SHO-HD, HBO-HD, etc. and I never, ever subbed to them. So, why do I still have all those channels?
I should clarify one thing...My initial intent when purchasing my 655 was to purchase satellite service with HD programming. I never intended to keep my cable service. I simply wanted to hook up my TV to my SD cable and watch some programming until I ordered my dish. The free content initially turned out to be a bonus, now I'm not so sure.
All I really want is a TV that behaves in a predictable manner and receives HD content without all of the problems with channel memory/locking that I've been having. I have no issue with paying for programming. This whole thing now comes down to the intellectual curiosity of why the TV is doing what it's doing. If I can have the problem, then so can others. If there's something that Sony isn't telling us, or we don't fully understand how the ATSC tuners really work, then I want to know.
