Low volume
On-line registry problems
No closed captions (last I checked)
EPG intermittent irregularities

Other than that, I get 'em too.:grin:

Apparently Charlie has a new channel coming:

There's word that a new spinoff from the Home Shopping Network, HSN 2 is scheduled to launch on Dish Network on August 1. You'll find the article here.

Gee, I can hardly wait.:rolleyes:

Well, I tried again using the online form on the web site. I'm asking:

Can you foresee a time soon when you might settle your lawsuit with Rainbow over VOOM so that we can get AMC's Emmy Award Winning "Mad Men" and the new "Rubicon" in HD?

I'm sure they'll put that at the top of their list.:rolleyes:
