Are You a Night Owl?

Are you one that has recently upgraded to digital cable with or are you thinking about it? Maybe you are someone that either stays up all night because you work all day or you just can’t sleep?  Are you getting wavy lines across your TV, glitches in sound, notifications that there is no data available, or even worse yet the “This station is currently unavailable. Please try again later message?” This happens to every single station?

We are. We are elderly individuals that leave our TV on to sleep – you know, like some people leave the radio on for the sound.  We like to listen to Country Western music softly or even have programs on. Recently, we’ve been experiencing the above problems EVERY NIGHT starting between 11:00 and 12:00 PM Phoenix time. And then, we wouldn’t get our stations back until 8:30 or 9:00 o’clock in the morning. We actually ended up with less stations than what we had before upgrading to digital.

Now, here’s the kicker. Did you know you have to turn your TV off every night? It seems that COX does upgrades to digital EVERY night between 1:00 – 6:00 in the morning; and if you have digital cable, your box won’t get the upgrades. Yeah, that’s what they told us!  And that’s why we don’t get channels – no sound – nada – zilch. You have to put your TV and box to bed, just like you would put your child to bed. Hmph, doesn’t that beat all. So much for technology improvements.
