I want to thank Directv for cancelling FOX networks in South Florida. Without this little push I would not be revelling in the lush world of U-Verse right this minute. 2 hours in and *everything* is better. I would still be stuck in the land of 10-second channel changes, Endless pauses between modes, buggy software, rain-fade and half-assed channel line-ups. Thanks Directv, I need the push. You are no longer entitled to collect $112/mo from me or deny me equipment upgrades that you shower on every new sign-up. I won't have to come here to find out if the latest screw-up in your buggy-buggy-not-ready-for-beta-testing software has been reported yet. So long folks, and all I can say is: When U-verse knocks at your door, don't even wait a millisecond before you say "yes". My new DVR is fast, capable and small. Its made by a real electronics company with a reputation to protect and (gasp) a software quality assurance department.
