She's smarter & better educated than me and we're both quite well attuned to the importance of avoiding insensitive or derogatory language, and "chick" certainly isn't in this context. Edit: and now I reread the reply chain and I have no idea if we're even talking about anything!
HDMI issue - there is a test patch, email me if you want to try. I will tell you I have had a handful of customers give it a go and about half hated it enough to go back to the existing version.
Sounds like waiting for the SW fix is my best bet - the component works just fine, especially on my low-res setup. Thanks for the info.
black HD channels - you need a service call.
we are not a monopoly. yes the phones are an issue and despite appearances, we are doing everything humanly possible to alleviate. the billing system conversion has put us under and we are (I personally promise) doing everything we can to get back to phone standards of pre-conversion.
Thanks, it's good to know that there is a specific cause - I spoke out of frustration for my girlfriend, because I know how it feels to feel like you're calling a brick wall, but it sounds like someone is on top of this.
Thank you for your attention and all the useful information!
