Fed up and fighting mad

That’s it. I’m sick and freaking tired of crappy service from Last night, we couldn’t get a decent HD picture for Game 7 Spurs-Hornets Western Conference semi-final. The picture kept dissolving into a pixelated mess, making the action totally unwatchable. However, any of the other channels were working, and even the studio segments in the game were fine. In the past year, we’ve had Cablevision out on three separate occasions for service problems. They have swapped out stuff on the line, replaced splitters and recently pulled a whole bunch of new wire in the house. Each time we had a different repair man, from a different subcontractor tell us that the last guy did something wrong.

Even after all that work, we still can’t get consistent, reliable service. The TV in the workout room drops it’s connection randomly for a few seconds every 15 minutes or so. The cable box upstairs has a very narrow volume range and can’t seem to be adjusted. After last night’s fiasco, I’m sick an tired of cable-hell.

I’m switching to Verizon FIOS

    I believe the phrase you’re looking for is “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!”

    Good luck – we had the cable company out three times for more hours than I care to count before they could correctly install the card into our Tivo. It’s just a card – how hard can it be?
