how many other satellite users dont know how to use their equipment?i was visiting my twin sister the other day and the first thing i noticed driving up to her house was E* dishes mounted on house.i was suprised cause the last time i had visited about 3 years ago they were dead set against satellite.after settling in i found out the following she had 4 301 receivers and she didnt know anything about DVR's.i had to show her how to use the menu section which included search,enabling caller id, setting up favorites etc; she had never heard of charlie chats.i am pretty sure her husband who was at work was clueless to because no favorites and caller id was disabled.i clued her in on how to operate everything and gave her all info on DVR 510 good and bad.they have the everything package but did not get superstations.to their defense they are very busy people both work full time and have ranch with cattle on it also 2 grown kids and 1 grand kid.

My sister is the sameway, she's got a 508 and 301, very seldom do they record and she never has clue when dish upgrades it. I suspect there's alot of people like that.

Can you say "most people"? People who visit these forums (we) are the exception, not the rule. As a result, we have absolutely no perspective on the situation. Mr & Mrs John Q Public are clueless and in a state of bliss. What we see as indispensble they don't even know or care about.

Countless people. By Brother in Law had no idea you could go about 9 days out on the 508 guide. He just stopped after going to that night's schedule. He knew the favorite lists, and did a good job of making them, but did not know all you had to do was to hit the guide button to go thru them. He was going to the menu selection each time!
