I would like to propose a moratorium on all talk of OTA, and my extension all attempts to bash or persuade Earl as regards OTA-related dates, times, and information, until next Wednesday.

It's clear the poor guy has told us all he can, and if I read things right, there will be a revelation aobut OTA and some unrelated feature in the very near future. I say, let the guy take some time off from answering the same question 18,000 times.

I'm not suggesting the moderators close any threads or anything, I think it's just time to let it sit.

Who's in? Who agrees to take the "No OTA 'til the day" pledge?

Nah, it is not Earl that everyone is bashing - its D* and they deserve it ALL :nono2:

Thanks for being such a good sport and for all your work to keep us up to date, Earl.

MORATORIUM, harummph! If we can't persist in trying to weasel something out of Earl, by hook or crook, about OTA, well....we just might start climbing towers (think U of Texas a few years ago) and popping off a few rounds...I mean really, this is getting tense...the anticipation is palpable!

We don't need no stinkin' OTA moratorium.

As the inmates rattle their tin cups across the jail house bars:

We Want OTA
We Want OTA
We Want OTA

(I just set my matress on fire)

Now, have a good chuckle and let Earl fend for himself, (he's very good at it, and has our gratitude, confidence and support...but those aren't reasons to let him off the hook)

I'd argue as to whether they deserve it ALL but it's fun anyway. So few things in life are really, really fun that you have to consider it a reward in itself.

Thanks for all the fish,

Looks like the moratorium idea is going down in flames... oh well just a thought. So, If you can't beat 'em, join 'em!

ATTICA!!
ATTICA!!

I hereby DEMAND that Rupert Murdoch PERSONALLY come to my house and get MY OTA working on my HR20! Never mind that I live in the Los Angeles DMA and have every @$^%#%^& channel known to man available in my locals package, I want MORE, MORE, MORE! I can't be responsible for my own actions if I don't get my OTA within the next 5 minutes (even though I'm nowhere near the house right now).

How's that? Do I fit in now?

OTA is definitely a big issue, more for some than others. It will be here when it gets here and no amount of posting on this forum is going to get it here any sooner. I guess I don't understand why this horse keeps getting beaten the way it is. :confused:

No, it wasn't incoherent enough. More rage, more misspellings and more exclamation points are necessary. Please revise your methods before trying to join the group.

:p

(where is the 'sarcastic' similie?)

It would have helped had I learned how to spell the word, though. :rolleyes:

That's just plain evil. :D

But, since we're talking about it. Maybe you could speak about a hypothetical situation in which a company might have wanted to release something by a certain date, and then decided due to an unforseen turn of events to delay said release. Hypothetically, of course, how long would that delay be? :lol:
