See July 15, 2013 post as to why I have cut back the rants to one or two a day.
#123. The deficiency of program information and the inconsistency in how it is ‘structured’ is beyond a joke, especially when it comes to movie descriptions. The other day I realized that it didn’t include any rating information for some movies. #118. Today I realized that while it does it for ‘many’ there are movies where the info does not include the names of the main stars! Yes, I know that they, sometimes, include a ‘cast & crew’ tab. But, when scanning through the program I just want 3 names at the start — and they do do this with some movies. It is the inconsistency. With DISH all movie information was always consistent — started with the stars, included a rating.
#124. I was one day out! On Monday I predicted, #117, that I will set a new record for the number of pushes to get mute to work by Tuesday. Well, it didn’t happen Tuesday. It happened today, Wednesday. Monday’s record was 4. This morning 5. Yes, 5 solid, hard, pushes of the mute button before the sound ceased. But, on trying to turn it back on — just 2. This is crazy. The Genie Mini is a piece of garbage.
