    No. There are two people in this thread that have reported it.

    It would not make any difference if a thousand people reported seeing it; the same people would be making excuses.:lol:

    I believe that's both inaccurate and unkind.

    Well, you "kinda sorta" can. Just create a "favorite channels" list and remove channels 125 & 129 and 90% of them are gone. There are still some odds and ends around the guide but that gets rid of most of them.

    I think people like us, who go to boards like these, tend to be extra-critical as compared to the "average" TV viewer. The one that really bothers me is when you're watching one show and all of a sudden there are characters from another show walking around the bottom of the screen. But when I'm steaming and I say something to my wife, she doesn't know what I'm talking about because she just didn't notice it. I'm afraid that most people are like that. :(

    If they start doing this, I will cancel in an instant. I have a homemade DVR, and if something like this pops up, the DVR would record it without knowing how to cancel it.

    If true, they should definitely stop doing it. You're annoying the critical viewers and the others aren't noticing. :)
