re: Direct TV contract cancellation - WavinWilly on 2/4/16 at 7:34 pm
I actually love DirecTv. It has to be damn near a tropical storm for the picture to go out and they have the best equipment and guide in the game. I have a real solid connection from Charter for internet and so the On-Demand is pretty instant as well. The customer services was real good on my cal...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]Hopefully they'll be more willing to work with you. [/quote] I just found the opposite. I just called to cancel my premiums and Sunday ticket because they gave me a discount last time I did that. They just called my bluff and took the packages off no problem.

re: Setting up DirecTV at alternate location - WavinWilly on 1/25/16 at 10:15 am
If you are going to do this, why not just call them and tell them you want to add another box in your home. Act like you got or will get a new TV. Get it activated and then walk it out to the new building and hook it up to the dish you have. That's what we did for tailgating. Added a box to my ho...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

The best thing about the Nexus line is the lack of crapware, and more importantly to me, updates. Too many times the manufacturers burn their customers with really really slow updates or just dropping support for a phone all together. With a Nexus you know you are going to be the first users to g...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Just cut cord- why is my stream droppng continuously? - WavinWilly on 1/14/16 at 3:17 pm
Lots of variables possibly at play here. If possible, plug directly into the router. WiFi interference, particularly on 2.4GHz, can cause all sorts of issues. If you are using the combo wifi switch, router, and modem from Cox, they are generally trash. Also I don't know what you mean by "Plug ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
AT&T Gigabit - St. Tammany and Jefferson Parish - WavinWilly on 1/14/16 at 1:11 pm
So somehow I stumbled on this at work today. Allegedly AT&T has plans to roll out Gigabit internet (So I'm assuming FTTH) in St. Tammany and Jefferson Parishes. The press release is dated in December 2015. What are the chances we actually see this? [link=(http://about.att.com/content/dam/snrdo...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
