Useless bunch of, well, I hate to say but I had a large number of missing channels which has taken numerous phone calls and 3 technician visits to solve. Only I solved it; they didn't.

What's worse is I had a brand new DVR and they swapped it out, unnecessarily, for an old one.

The problem ended up being a drop cable. The latest technician finally showed some sense by hot wiring the cable directly to the TV which would either show a bad cable inside or outside the house. It was inside so he said that a 'team' would have to come in and rewire from where the cable comes into the house to the DVR.

And I said, you haven't checked the cable from the wall outlet to the DVR. He didn't want to. I insisted. It was bad. He replaced it. Fixed.

Can I have my new box back? No!
