With all these "new channels" coming in the fall who will control the remote you or better half,in my case I'm likey got more then one receiver,but for those who got one who will win the "fight" over the remote.How does that saying go "The man is in charge of the remote" or something like that.No offence to any women on the forum especially from what I've seen for program not bad start.

Hi Tom

My name is Dave and I`m a remote-a-holic.

I personally have a hard time watching tv unless I`m in control of the remote.

I think my favorite channel must be the guide channel because that is where I seem to spend the most time watching. http://www.kusat.com/forums/images/icons/wink.gif

I always have to surf during every commercial. There must be a better show on somewhere. http://www.kusat.com/forums/images/icons/smile.gif

Geez in real life I`m not a controlling person but when it comes to the remote if I`m not the one in charge of it I just move to another tv in the house.

Maybe I need therapy. http://www.kusat.com/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

I had to get a second receiver to cure problems here. I tend to surf the guide then stick to one channel to seee the whole program. My better half tends to surf every channel. Once the new channels are up, we are going thru the channel lockouts to get rid of the ones we don t like.

We both are hoping choice goes with a option like Bev where we can purchase chanels by themselves instead of having to get the whole package. Paying 2 or 3 dollars for one channel is far better then having to pay 6 or 7 for paying for 7 channels and only wanting 1. A good example now is TLC. We want the channel, and in order to get it, we had to get the whole package and we don't watch the rest.

I wasn't even aloud to activate the system before we had two receivers. My wife rules the remote and it sucks. The worst part is I can't even go to the back room and watch the second receiver because then I am not spending enough time with her. Anyway enough of my personal problems. Man do I need help.

Yep! I have no control. If i go to the second receiver, I get followed. I get my fill of TV at work anyway.
