See July 15, 2013 post as to why I have cut back the rants to one or two a day.
#118. I noticed to my intense chagrin that DirecTV does NOT provide me with ANY rating information on two movies that I recorded over the last 24 hours, one of them “Thomas Kinkade’s Christmas Cottage“. Absolutely nothing as to whether it is PG, R, XXX of whatever. Normally I don’t check or care about ratings because I other have a good ideas as to what they are supposed to be or because the movie is not for the kids. With these 2 movies, and the other has a title along the lines “A Dog For Christmas” I want to know whether the kids could watch them. Nothing. Nada. Yes, I can, and did, check the Kinkade movie using the Web. It is PG. But this is stupid. In general, compared to DISH, DirecTV’s ‘info’ leaves much to be desired.
#119. The Genie would NOT power up again. From the research I have done, all the indications are that my Genie is ready to die. If it dies before July 20 I could get a new one for free — I think since there is a grudging, petty 30 day warranty. I hope it dies soon.
