Well I didn't say that you weren't helpful. I was just asking about an attitude that I perceive.

And again, I recognize that some folks here think I've been making all of this up, but Doug knows who came to visit today. I'm not one to name drop.

I believe the issue is that we were getting frustrated. We provided input and suggestions on things to check and you didn't want to do that. You also wouldn't answer our questions completely and provided us with conflicting information.

While I am glad that your issue appears to be resolved, I think it could have been taken care of within the first week of you posting here.

I think it is somewhat strange that some folks here seem to think that they know more than the guys that designed these systems.

How could that possibly be?

And why do you put "they" in quotation marks?

And of course they have run the coax tests. All of those check out as I posted before.

because it is true. my last installers didn't know about the network test you can peform on the 24s.

Look, we've been through that before. I answered with what I thought was the right answers. Been learning as I went along I guess.

At least I have the satisfaction of knowing my initial hunch was correct, right? :D

We expect everyone to be learning as they go here, but at the same time we kind of expect suggestions to be taken too, or if not understood, asked about.
Stubbornness didn't help anyone here, so I wouldn't give much credit to anyone"s "hunch", when it could have been found out/proved so much sooner. :nono:
