For months we have had channels on our satellite where the signals won't come in. So I finally called and the tech came out today. He ended up replacing my receiver. I got a new receiver out of it, but now I've lost all my recordings, my favorites guides are all gone, and now the home phone won't work. I called him back and left a voice mail. He called back and told me to call the phone company, but we figured out that wasn't the problem. So I called him back and left a voice mail and after an hour he still hasn't returned my call. Well as I was writing this he called back and said he will come back out tomorrow to see what he can do to fix it. To top it all off when I initially called, they were going to charge me $95 just for the tech to come out. Or they said I could get a service protection for $7/mo. I said I didn't want to do that but then she said I could cancel after 120 days and so I said that's what I would do then. But it doesn't seem right. It's their problem after it's all said and done. It was their updates that didn't work. They shouldn't even charge me for that. But what can you do besides pull it all out and go with another company. And then I would have to start all over again. It's a never-ending, overwhelming technological nightmare. It never ends. If it's not the TV, it's the computer, or the internet. It's always something.
OK. I'm through venting. Wonder if it will make me feel any better:-(
