This is NOT about the forced recordings, look past the recordings, this is about not being able to lock and hide ch 101. I never had a problem with the forced recordings of E* propaganda before. The reason I had no problem with it was because I had ch 101 locked and hidden. Well it now appears that E* has taken away that ability. CH 101 is not only showing in my guide but I can not lock it, it does not appear in the list of ch's that can be locked. I will not watch any of the crap forced on my receiver and for the first time in 8 years I am really pissed at E* for doing this.
