Kirk: Everything Harry tells you is a lie.
Harry Mudd: Listen to this carefully, Norman. I am lying.
Norman: You say you are lying, but if everything you say is a lie, then you are telling the truth, but ...you cannot tell the truth because everything you say is a lie. You lie -- You tell the truth -- But you cannot -- Illogical! Illogical! Please explain.

But when it does end.....then that name would be a LIE


Perhaps "Neverending Lie" is more suitable!

Last week they lied to me, too.

They said the tech would arrive between 8am and Noon, and he didn't arrive until 12:50pm.

:D


When I had mine installed had them call me on the phone to confirm that they were on thier way so I could be there. Left work early and traveled the 25 miles home. Waited for an hour and nobody showed. Finally called them and they said there werent able to make it and rescheduled for the next week.

The next week on the day before the install I (yes, I called) to confirm they were actually going to show up. They said no, changed the date again to the next week. Finally got it installed the next week by a looser who arrived early in a pile of **** van and took a nap in my drive way. No markings on the van. My wife called me first wondering if she should call the cops. I called the install service to see if it was him and it was.

Finally got mine installed 3 weeks after the NFL season started which was the only reason I got it in the first place. I would have thought placing the order 6 weeks before the start of the season would have been plenty of time to get it installed.

After about 5 calls they finally removed the fees for ST for those 3 weeks. You wouldnt think you would have to argue to not be charged for something you never recieved.

My contract is up in Sept. Glad to end this nightmare.

Sorry for the late update.

I talked to someone in retensions and we finally got it worked out.

My first appointment for the MVR install and 2 new hd receivers was cancelled the day before due to a lack of equipment on hand. Called to reschedule and they gave me $50 credit on my bill for the cancelled appointment. Next appointment slot was 10 days later.

I could not be home for the next install, but my wife was. I hate doing this as my wife might not ensure everything is working properly when the tech leaves. I talked to the tech on the phone and he insured me everything was working fine. Both DVRs could be seen on the other TVs in the system he told me.

The next day I check everything out and one of the DVRs (21-700) is not showing up in the system. I call and go thru all of the troubleshooting steps which took about an hour on the phone. They think my 21-700 DVR is not working properly.

Another tech comes out yesterday with a new 24, installs it and now all seems to be well.

So the whole process did take over a month, but I finally have just about everything working right. My only issue is I can't get my esata 1tb hd to work on the 24. I asked for help in another thread here.

Last week the home depot installers lied to me. They said they would be at my house between 1 and 3. They showed up at 4:15 and stayed until 9:00 installing my carpet. What is this world coming to?
