The cable guy is going door to door selling a new satellite

Hmmn, I got the shallowest mechanized message on my digital answering machine twice the past couple days. It left an 866 number to call regarding a "free" upgrade for a TiVo descrambler for my HDTV. The upgrade comes (requires) with the TiVo/box, a larger dish and installation. I said, I have stuff in memory I don't want to lose and Paula tells me that that's too bad and I have to find my own way to save my stuff. It's times like these I wish I were a lawyer so that I could inquire why the upgrade equipment can't just be left on my doorstep (leading to why I can't keep the old TiVo/box just like the techs conveniently leave the old dish for my to dispose of. "No can do" says Paula. "… and I can't break down the value of what the package runs for since I'm not charging you to do all this".

OK, schedule me for an upgrade the latest you can. Now I'm curious about just how many hidef channels I'm missing out on, since it would be nice to get a HD digital broadcast of my fav newscast. If I don't post for awhile, it's because I'm uploading all my saved stuff as fast as I can.
