    CW Network

    i get the cw network, but only b/c the bought out the wb or one of those type local stations. d* does offer it, if you are in an area where it is one of your local stations. its no different than any of the other locals.

    ESPN Gameplan question

    i could be way off here, but i don't think espn is under any obligation to unblock it b/c the local is showing it or if they even could if they wanted to. i would say that espn's contract with the ncaa expressly prohibits them from allowing to be viewed in the blackout area no matter the...

    Favorite Remote Control

    Horror Story with local installer

    the same thing happened to me with the phone call to D*, the hang-up, wanting to schedule another install, etc. i'm starting to get really frustrated and i'm getting the feeling that somehow we are all going to get screwed in the end.

    HDMI connection

    i don't really feel like i'm getting THAT much of a better picture w/hdmi cable. i can tell a small improvement w/sports, but my picture was already great in that area anyway. i definitely don't feel like i got a picture to equal the price of the cable. those things are really ridiculous.
