If Time Warner gets too unbearable, you can always go up to the attic, rip off all the insulation underneath the roof, and crank the heat up to 90 degrees. That should melt that damn snow.

I have 6 as well. one in the finished basement, den, family room, master bedroom, and 2 in my childrens bedrooms. If you count the antique that we have on the enclosed porch then it is 7, but we never watch the damn thing.

4, one in each bedroom and one in the living room. I now have all flat panels so I should be done buying TVs for a long time. Just got a new 46" Panasonic plasma for the living room, it rocks.

Re: DirecTV vs. cable

We have 3. Basement, kitchen, our bedroom. Kids don't have cable drops in their rooms, and I don't plan on doing that anytime soon.

We have Comcast, and for what it's worth, it's fine. We haven't had any problems with TV or Internet service. And the only reason I haven't switched to DirecTV is because DSL isn't provided in our neighborhood. So in order to have high speed internet (which I need for work) and not pay close to $60/month for it, I'm sticking with Comcast for now. My parents have and love FiOS, and I would consider that switch if it's ever provided. But for now, Comcast is fine.

You mean the Federal Government will pay someone (Create a job) to install your four converter boxes.............

Later on down the thread, it sounds like you have DirecTV. If so, you don't need any converter boxes. Only people that pull their TV signal from the air need a converter.

Re: DirecTV vs. cable

I have two, maybe Uncle Sam will give me monies to buy more TVs in this porkulus package :p The PC in my bedroom has a 30" Dell monitor and a TV tuner card and I have 50" Panasonic Plasma in the living room.

Soon as Verizon FIOS is available Comcast is getting tossed on the streets. It's a little personal and a little business. Around here Comcast has plenty of HD channels, the quality of picture is pretty good, and their DVR is second to none but they've rubbed me the wrong way too many times and there are consequences [to] poking your customers.

Getting rubbed the wrog way is still better than not getting rubbed at all.

The converter boxes have to be installed right? There you go! Heck! If it pays good I just might have switch jobs and............install converter boxes for a living! That job would be fun!
