Ok – so I was going to be more positive starting today – and I think I did ok until this afternoon!!
Just to be clear – I used to have Verizon FIOS – but then I moved to a new neighborhood and they weren’t out here yet – so unless I wanted to get satellite (and yes I do like DirectTV – but didn’t want to buy the equipment) Verizon promises to be out here @ the end of July… PLEASE LET THAT HAPPEN!!
So – our main HD DVR blitzed out – had to reboot the dang thing at least once a day (that is a whole other rant)
The cable guys showed up – can you believe – 2 guys – 2 different trucks just to exchange a box… really?
So as they were walking up – early (do have to give them that) – my electricity went out – well what great timing… so they exchange the 2 boxes – and the electricity comes back on.. so I ask “can you transfer the taped shows from one DVR to the other?” They looked at me like I had horns growing out of my head (come on – you can barely see them 😉 ) Then they said “NO, you can’t do that”. I said, “one hard drive to another – you even have a menu item to copy to vcr”. I got the blank stare again. SO I just said “dang – should have copied to disc before you got here” – then I got the eyeroll that meant “Silly girl, you couldn’t do that”
So now – am pissed at myself for not doing that before they came. I had the new Season of Burn Notice on there – just finished watching Season 1 – and Season 2 doesn’t come out until tomorrow – so wasn’t going to watch Season 3 yet! now gonna have to wait for re-runs or watch online.. oh well… Still…
