    You should see the transcripts I have saved from my comcast chats. I had enough. I made them bury new cable to my place before I cancelled though just to be a dick. :jj:

    The only reason I don't have DirectTV is because they don't carry Pac-12 Network. Comcast sucks cock though.

    I've had comcast forever. Never ever ever had any issues until this recent thing. It's the only time I've had to call since my install though so really the only time I've dealt with them. It's like they have 5th graders working there.

    Tell me about it pal. They started using automated system more and more because that stupid piece of shit robot does better than the people they have working there in customer service. McDonald's has far superior customer service.

    TWC is pure shit. At least Comcast attempts to innovate a tiny bit... DirecTV is by far the best.

    The only reason I keep Comcast is for the Internet. Otherwise our only other choice is DSL. And I fucking hate Comcast.. Their video sucks. I'm always losing audio and have to channel up and back down to get it back. And the VOD sucks too, always fucking up and the Search function doesn't even work.

    I once had a Directv tech tell me in order to fix my problem, I had to disconnect my receiver for 5 minutes, then press every button on my remote- twice. Only after that could I plug it back in.

    I said dude, seriously. I get it. You say that to make sure people keep it disconnected long enough.

    He assured me that was not the case. By pressing every button on the remote, twice, I was sending a specific signal to my receiver to reset certain settings.

    I explained how fascinating it was that a remote without batteries was able to send a clear signal to an unplugged recipient.

    He put me on hold.
