I am one Dish subscriber who is not happy about the imminent loss of AMC and IFC. Meanwhile, however, I've consoled myself with the knowledge that at least I'd be able to see the Mad Men season finale on Sunday 6/10. But this was (and apparently IS) not to be . . . I came home Sunday evening to find that the Mad Men timer hadn't fired at its usual time. So, I quickly started a manual timer for the 10 PM rebroadcast. Then I realized I'd missed the first 15 minutes of the episode, so I set a timer for yet another rebroadcast at, I think, midnight or 1 AM. I laboriously overrode (or so I thought) the timer software's default setting that skips recordings when the content has already been saved. Dish's software does not make it intiutively obvious how to do this -- it's quite a chore. Come Monday morning, still no full recording. So I set another timer for a late Monday night broadcast. Tuesday morning, guess what? At this point I decided to delete the partial recording from Sunday night so I could be sure to get the timer to work. There was another rerun of the same episode late Tuesday night, and I thought I was good to go. But now it's Wednesday and not only did the timer fail FOR THE FOURTH TIME but I don't even have the last 45 minutes of this important (to me) show. I will be away starting this Sunday, but it appears that Mad Men will be shown one last time Sunday evening. Anyone want to take any bets about whether my DVR will work this time? Or maybe Dish will stop carrying AMC by then. In any case, I think Dish owes me something. And I have to say I'm seriously considering dropping my $70/month subscription -- we can't get all the HD channels we're still expected to pay for here in AK, anyway. I'm sick of being taken advantage of financially and of having Dish hardware and software fail like this.
