I have had D* for about a week now and I have noticed that I don't have access to my RSN channels (629 and 626). I called D* and they stated that I cannot get any sports packages including my basic RSNS without a phone line hooked up to my box. When I was signing up for D* I told them I didn't have a phone and they stated that the only thing the phone line is used for is to order ppv. I am one of the growing population of people that have done the math and figured out that its much cheaper to just have a cell phone and no land line. I have 1 R15. I know many friends that have no phone line and have their RSNs. I have also done a few searches around dbstalk and found an older thread were someone had the same issues (no phone no rsns) on his r15 but he got them on the d11 basic boxes he had. I am on the brink cancelling. Should I return my r15 and just get the d11 (not hooked on the dvr so far). Thanks!
