Power with Control
Seems like we are having more connection issues recently. Between the Green Door and St Marys City, anyone else?
One would thunk... Seems, Metro-cast would have offered a "turn-key" package as far as the cable network :shrug:I'd have thunk they would have been worked most of that out by now. :shrug:
Are the wires in question all run within the house? Not sure your Coax (wires) would just go "bad"... but if it fixed the problemHad the tech out today. Three of the four sets in the house started losing connection in the last week. "apparently" my wires in the house went bad after 20 years. Go figure
Fixed many a coax at the connection point into the house helping seniors. The center copper conductor darkens or oxidizes. Disconnect, scrape clean, put back together. Easy, peezie. Not always the problem, but it needs to be checked with old coax.Are the wires in question all run within the house? Not sure your Coax (wires) would just go "bad"... but if it fixed the problem
There is a method using a pressure washer that would let you put a conduit under the slab without disturbing it.I expect he will tell me today the same thing it has been the past two times. The WAN outgoing signal strength (dBmV) is too high and the modem/router keeps continually resets itself. They've not isolated the exact problem yet, they just keep installing new connectors and splitters until the level falls below the reset point.
I'm waiting for them to tell me I need to run a new coax from my house to the pole. Wouln't be too bad except that the first four feet of cable is underneath a concrete patio, and the previous owners didn't run it through a conduit.
True, but you will need that for the conduit to exit the earth and hit a service elbow junction before entering the house, right?I'll look into that. Hopefully the cable is beneath and not in the concrete. I will still have to chip the concrete away where the cable comes up along the wall though.
Actually the bright orange coax pops up through the concrete, over 24" and up 18" where it enters the box mounted to the side of the house.True, but you will need that for the conduit to exit the earth and hit a service elbow junction before entering the house, right?
I noticed. It went up for me about eight bucks. I called them up and asked wtf for, followed by how much am I paying for cable. I then signed up for Sling and although I'm not thrilled to death with the amount of channel selection (should have shopped around a little) I will be saving $76.00 per month. Funny as soon as I started questioning them, they tried to send me to their retention department. If they can afford to lower my bill through retention, why not just lower it period. Not sure who I hate more, Metrocast or Atlanta Broadband.That didn't take long...
Received my latest Atlantic Broadband Bill, including some new rate hikes!
I'm pretty sure they do. I guess it is better than getting stuck with Comcast. My problem was that they didn't accept Amex like Metrocast did. Maybe they told me this in a paper statement. But, since I never open paper statement's because I had autopay for many years, how would I know. After they shut me off I called and asked why they didn't try to call. She says, we tried to contact some of our customers. Nice that they waived the late feeDo they sit around and dream-up new charges they can impose...
Sling is owned by Dish Network and my Sling trial experience left a bad taste in my mouth.I then signed up for Sling and although I'm not thrilled to death with the amount of channel selection
I was just reading a Letter to the Editor in my hometown paper where the person was basically saying this is a case of age discrimination. There are still many senior citizens that do not have computers and or email, and this amounted to a tax on the elderly.Latest Bill for Atlantic BB, besides the Local TV surcharge ($11.00) and Sports surcharge ($4.00), they now added a "Paper Statement Charge" of $1.00. Do they sit around and dream-up new charges they can impose...
Did you just call @Airgasm OLD?I was just reading a Letter to the Editor in my hometown paper where the person was basically saying this is a case of age discrimination. There are still many senior citizens that do not have computers and or email, and this amounted to a tax on the elderly.
