Same here - if it rained my cable would go out for a couple of days. I would call the cable company and their response was: "We know - we are working on it". But they wouldn't adjust my bill for loss of service. Plus, the picture quality seemed to degrade every couple of months so they would come out and change something and it would work OK again - for a while. When I first switched to D*TV I finally realized the picture quality I could have been getting.
