Hahah. I just did it and set up new service. I've watched your posts for a while and took the hint, figuring you knew exactly what you were talking about.
I have lightning already, so this is saving me about $60 a month. Thanks for the help!
Also, I totally understand the software update process on these guys. I really just want shows grouped together in the DVR list and smart recording (e.g. if there's a conflict, the DVR will find another time one of the conflicting shows is playing and record that one. Also, it won't record the same episode over and over). I don't really care about HD guides.
I may or may not also work out of the office where one brand of the cable boxes are engineered, those guys work hard. (I work on something completely different)
