    So here is reply from FCC Complaint
    "Thank you for your submission. Based on our review, your Ticket No. 2884136 was served on your provider on Nov 1.

    Here's what you can expect from the FCC's informal complaint process:

    - Your provider should contact you directly in an effort to resolve your issue.
    - The FCC's role in this process is to facilitate a conversation between you and your provider.
    - Your provider is required to submit to the FCC a written response regarding your issue no later than 30 days from today.
    - The FCC will not contact you until we receive a response from your provider.

    You can view a list of frequently asked questions about the informal complaint process at: Filing a Complaint Questions and Answers."

    Well, Charter/Spectrum called with some Blah Blah, yada yada in response to FCC complaint. Did nothing to to supply self install cable card, except say would have someone else to call. No wonder there is a problem, Spectrum having someone call, not having read complaint or just not understanding simple words like "SPECTRUM REFUSES TO SUPPLY CABLE CARD."

    Thank you fcfc2 for FCC complaint link

    TRUE Dat: It worked for me: Spectrum sent a top level technician and when the usual spectrum crew couldn't activate the card, he by passed them by calling his boss who fixed it and it was done.

    I am continually impressed that complaining to the FCC gets results. It's nice to see a direct gov't benefit to consumers every now-and-again.

    Every time I need to drive to Florida, Eisenhower becomes my favorite president.

    Fun fact, Eisenhower got the idea from Hitler.

    I remember (from school), but putting that on a sign would be a bad idea.
