    drumdude's attitude is basically the equivalent of witnessing a murder and instead of calling the police, just telling everyone that murder is bad.

    And the thing of it is, everybody already knows that murder and Time-Warner service are bad.

    And yet even with that nothing can be done about it without proof. Sure we all know TWC sucks and has issues, but the FCC can't do anything unless people supply them with proof of the issues.

    Look at sbiller's post in coffee house about his FCC filing and they even advised him to file a complaint which may result in Brighthouse being fined by the FCC.

    He didn't even go to the bother of buying a postage stamp to write a strongly-worded message to the Times!

    That should be "stern letter to the times".:D

    As to the murder witness analogy - I see it more as being mugged and rather than reporting it, going to the local(pub) and sitting around complaining about it to your fellow patrons.

    It is more like "my state is majority democrat (republican) and it doesn't matter if I vote"

    Hey guys -- I have a personal guarantee that the new DirecTivo will ship this week: I've been putting up with hard drive problems with my Series3 for months, hoping the new DirecTivo would ship, but the poor thing has gotten so much worse that I finally gave in and ordered a new drive for it. It's due to arrive today, so I'd expect DirecTV to ship their new unit within a day or two, tops. :rolleyes:

    Who made the guarantee? Aren't there any DTV employees or CSRs on this forum that can give us a heads up?

    My tuning adapter just got a firmware update and I'm hoping it fixes some bugs that are compelling me to switch to Directv. One more reason they'll release it immediately after all the cable bugs are fixed.

    How can you miss the same kind of joke you just made?

    Actually it was probably one of the most valid indicators we've had!

    Compared to Time Warner's service, murder isn't all that bad. :eek:

    You should be traveling to areas that are experiencing a drought and washing your car!:D

    Mea culpa. I suppose I'm getting desperate if that's the right word that I'm not so quick on the uptake.

    What's the deal anyway? They have the machine, we saw the video. Must be some kind of manufacturing delay or a delay involved with getting the units out to the professional installers.

    But my own irony is probably correct. All the bugs with the Series 3 and the Tuning Adapters will be completely fixed by the time they get this out -- and then there won't be any need to switch to DTV.

    If Time Warner had the NFL channel, I'd be left with no complaints at all. Shocking I know.

    Anyone with Time-Warner will never be at a loss for complaints.

    Austin is one of those rare exceptions where they have good people behind the scenes and they support Tivo users properly. NFL channel missing and Tivo unreliability is not the fault of Time Warner in Austin. They've done everything possible.
