That enough acronyms for ya? I'm having the WORST time with my Time Warner HD service! Over the past 6-ish months, I've had service techs at my house 3 times due to signal dropouts, lurching picture, blocking, etc. Every time, they hook up their signal strength analyzer, then say the levels coming to my house are too high, too low, they need to install amplifiers, filters, attenuators, etc. (One amp they wanted to use was a powered unit with a wire snaking to a wall wart on my back porch. That was attractive!) Each time it's something different. They've also re-run new cable from the house to the pole and cut and re-terminated all of said cables repeatedly. Meanwhile, our second Scientific Atlanta 8000HD bit the dust last night, with less than a month's use on it. As with the first one, when I tried to bring up my list of recorded programs, I got an error message saying "There may be a problem with your hard drive. Reboot, and if the problem persists, call 1-800..." My wife is particularly furious because she had several weeks' worth of BBC America's "Mystery Monday" episodes stacked up. Setting aside my wife's fetish for moody British detectives, is anyone else out there having better or similar luck with these bozos as me? /rant (If you haven't seen it already, check out www.mypvrsucks.com ) heh.
