See July 15, 2013 post as to why I have cut back the rants to one or two a day.
#167. On Tuesday we, as a family, were watching a Hallmark movie. Come bedtime for the kids, I stopped the movie using the STOP button. That took us back to the recorded event ‘box’ — which has the options listed on the left hand side starting with PLAY, RESUME etc. DONE is right at the bottom. So I am scrolling down to DONE when the screen goes blank. No sound. Another bloody black screen from DirecTV. Could not go back to before. used Channel select to get out. Then checked movie via LIST. It was still there. Damn strange. Very annoying.
#168. Selecting FAVORITES, with either remote, has become a total bloody crap shoot. Hardly ever works first time. You got to keep on pressing it hoping that it will work. Amazing. Pitiful engineering. Cheap technology. Useless company.
