See July 15, 2013 post as to why I have cut back the rants to one or two a day.
#132. Today is a month since I had “Direc F*ING TV” installed. By far the worst decision of my long life. It has been, as chronicled here, on a daily basis, nothing but an unmitigated nightmare. There has not been one single bloody positive. There has NOT BEEN a SINGLE F*ING day without a problem. DirecTV, easily, is the worst company in the world.
#133. I check my bill on a regular basis because I know that they will try to sneak in something. Yesterday it said my balance was $0.00. Today, this. How stupid. Do you think I will get this as a credit against my bill. Don’t be stupid.
#134. Just yesterday and today, I have had 46 hits on my post on how to fix the ‘No Sound‘ problem on the Genie HR 34! 46 hits in 2 days. The idiot installer, who I think was on drugs, told me that he had never heard of this problem. Well it is a known problem, but DirecTV tries to deny it. The installer really was a piece of work. They are all out to screw you from the get-go.
#135. The lack of PROGRAM INFO by DirecTV is beyond a joke as I have already mentioned at least 3 times, #123, #118, #23. Last night I noticed to my intense chagrin that DirecTV does not list episode numbers with TV series like ‘Four Weddings’ or the new ‘Wedding Island’. The kids like these wedding programs. With a new series like ‘Wedding Island’ using episode numbers is such an easy way to make sure you have recorded all the shows that have been broadcast. Bloody DirecTV. No episode numbers. They are so stupid.
#136. Yesterday morning when I turned on the TV and Genie ‘the garbage’ Mini I just could not, and I mean could not, get bloody CNN, Channel 202. Nothing. F*ing thing was just dead. I had to use bloody channel up/down and then go back to 202.
#137. The stupid Genie now will not turn on downstairs using just the Genie start-up button on the remote. Have to use the programmed ‘start Genie & TV’ button — even if the TV is already on. Stupid.
