Unfortunately it is not a regular TV. It is an Electrohome 3 gun CRT projector and has various inputs connected through an RGBHV switcher. The whole process involves multiple remotes and manual operations to lower the screen, turn on the equipment and manually select the Sat Receiver input on the switcher. As a result, she doesn't watch that setup unless I am there. That is the reason for one of the other receivers that is for her TV in the family room. (1 remote and as straightforward as I can make it) Seems to me they can see that 3 receivers are connected and they should be able to see that without having to manually check them. It is a real pain to connect the last one as it is a 311 and only has phone line connection capability and no phone line anywhere near it. It doesn't have an RJ45 Internet jack. It they want to turn that one off on me I guess I can live without it as it is the least used in the house.

I would have to say that the agreement terms are also a little wishy washy.

Perhaps if you had agreed to them and were not just here to find fault with them your opinion would be different.

As for your cop comparison then I would have to say if someone got pulled over for speeding and did or didnt get a ticket either way but got back in their car and the driver sped off again speeding right that second do you think the cop would give them a ticket to enforce their position?

Probably. In DISH's case they would call again when they noticed that phone lines were still not connected. As they did in Mr Howard's case. This was his second audit call.

Too Funny! The Clark Howard thread gets Amazon promos on the banner for Clark Howard's books. ROTFL
