I assumed that this had been done as I did not hear from them again .. until Tuesday night. Tues I got a call from an account supervisor from Dish...

    Unable to change programming online.

    Just noticed on my latest bill that my promo for showtime has ended so they are charging me $12 for it. I don't watch it much so wanted to drop it. Went to the website, clicked my programming and got the message : "We're sorry, but because of your base package you cannot change your...

    Anyone in Tulsa ...

    Seeing problems on local channels. Am getting real bad breakup on all of my local stations right now. Over the Air is just fine and national stations are working just fine too. Just me ? Do I need to call them or is it a blip that'll probably fix itself?

    South Park - Finally !

    Back to what it does best. Its been on a long slippery slope down for the past couple of years with the occasional episode of genius thrown in there - but tonight's episode was back to the formula that makes them the best at what they do. Topical, politically incorrect, sharp humor. Let's hope...

    I have an abandoned cable from a satellite install in my spare room ... following the cable back outside around the other side of the house .. i noticed that on its journey it passed by my two-way OTA splitter (which feeds my main bedroom and my main TV setup in the DEN.) In a flash of...

    Unusual customer service ... (Remington)

    I say unusual .. because it was actually much better than expected. Having decided a few months ago that i would grow a beard in my effort to fully immerse myself in my new-found fully-fledged long-awaited legal American citizen status ... I figured that i should probably buy myself some kind...

    Hatton v's Lazcano - IBO light-welterweight title fight.

    Heads up ... for all boxing fans ... Was looking all over for this fight - i figured it would be pay-per-view or on one of the premium movie channels .. but it would appear that its showing on V's in HD .. Great news for me as it'll save me a few $$'s .... Should be a decent fight.

    What's for dinner ?

    Ok, I'm bored .... actually - to be more precise - I'm bored of eating the same rotation of 9 or 10 meals that are currently my "go-to" meals. My wife works the long hours - I work from home as and when i feel like it ... which means i generally do most of the cooking ... and so by default - i...

    Not so fast ... HD VMD V's Blu-Ray .. let the battle commence.

    Interesting read .. but if price was the only factor ... HD-DVD would still be around. "No sooner has the battle for the next-generation high definition DVD format ended, with Blu-ray triumphing over HD DVD, than a new contender has emerged... "...
