re: Bluetooth connectivity issues with ford sync - TheChiefHasArrived
I've had nothing but issues with mysync in my 2014. Brought my car in to the shop and they had to update the software and now I can't speak into my phone using Siri, so now I don't have voice control while driving. BT, Sirius go out intermittently for days at a time as well. ...

Caribbean COVID - TheChiefHasArrived
Looking to head to Mexico or the Caribbean this December. I know a few people who say Mexico is relatively open. I have a list of which other countries are open, but was looking for some more first-hand information on how open "open" really is, as I'd hate to take a trip and be confined to my hotel ...

re: Anyone flying out of MSY this weekend or early next week - TheChiefHasArrived
Hurricane is forecast for Saturday AM now, not sure how flights next week would be affected unless the damage is more than expected. SW wouldn't give me a voucher for my Fri AM-Sun PM flight but looks like I'm in the sweet spot now (until they change the landfall time again)....

re: Smart Shades - TheChiefHasArrived
I just see a TON of HD reliability issues online. Obviously there are issues with looking at reviews since only pissed off people post them, but thinking I may shell out the cash for the Lutron, especially since I found Home Depot installs them and my quote was a ripoff. I just know I'd be kicking m...

Smart Shades - TheChiefHasArrived
I'm looking at 4 shades in new construction that are automatic, work with Alexa, and have near or total blackout option. Got my house pre-wired for power supply. I've been quoted for Lutron and Hunter Douglas. Lutron Sivoia is apparently the only wired option for Lutron, but is outrageously pric...

re: Youtube TV or others... - TheChiefHasArrived
I like FuboTV too, got a referral deal and a savings with my credit card and switched over from YTTV based on price. I'd say they're about equal. Have all sports except TNT (NBA playoffs), which I do think YTTV has....

re: What's your preferred app to listen to Podcasts? - TheChiefHasArrived
Another vote for Overcast - favorite feature is "Skip intro," can skip the intro song, ad, and recap that happen in so many of my podcasts and get to the point....

re: Heads Up. Best Buy has the 75" TCL 8 Series on sale for $1499 today. - TheChiefHasArrived
Tempted to jump on this. Looking at sites like [link=(https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/tcl/8-series-2019-q825-qled)]rtings[/link] it seems like its weaknesses are in things that are important to me: bright room/anti glare, good for sports, and wide viewing angle especially when compared to my curre...

re: Cox Contour Wireless Streaming Player - TheChiefHasArrived
Same question - I have mesh network in home already, and Cox is offering to upgrade my internet to gigabyte + Wireless streaming for $65, the same cost as YouTubeTV etc. 1-year contract which I'm not a fan of especially since there aren't any reviews of it, because it seems like a great deal otherwi...

re: ATT TV v. YouTube TV v. Others - TheChiefHasArrived
Try them all out, they'll give you a free trial to try them out, with the exception of AT&T which makes you sign a contract, dealbreaker to me. I switched to Fubo from YoutubeTV and they are the two best, with FuboTV being slightly cheaper. Has the option for NFL Redzone too which will be nice next ...

Had same situation happen after a move out of state and then back. Insurance didn't actually lapse, they just needed proof. I brought my insurance cards from the entire period in question.
