Bastards! It's digital cable so when you try to tune in it says "not authorized" check out the website, and sure enough Speed is no longer there.

Formula One is coming up!

i have had boxes go bad and that is the result- it goes "stupid" and gives you that message. No way they dropped Speed- it is too popular in all markets: get a replacment box from your cable store. Or call cable and have them reset your box from cable central- you will need the serial number from the bottom of the box.OR, you can pick up the digital ones at the store. HDTV boxes must be delivered by a "technician". Trust me: i have gone through hell with digital cable boxes- i finally have a pair that are "smart"- checking speed out right now just to be sure.....got it: hot rod TV @ 0505 hrs tuesday in sfo.

vagueries. If you can go with a dish- i would do it: i want one but need permission to install .I will have it some day. I hear dish and "all you can eat" cable bills are about the same. you may have better package selection with dish- you actually might save money. They have deals all the time for a free second receiver, unless everyone in the house wants to watch Speed 24/7, lol. Good luck-confirm loss of Speed with MN cable and then buy the Dish at Costco or whereever they are promoting a sale.

snow very well. I just called and they said that they "accidentially" offered Speed in the past and have "fixed the problem" now. Funny that it is on the channel lineup that they gave me. I can have it back for an extra $6.50. Oh well, just cancelled.

Hello,

I have directv, I have never lost picture or reception from the weather. It is in fact snowing at this moment and the picture looks great. As for buying one, alot of the time the equipment is free or close to it with rebates. I was going to buy mine at Best Buy and install it myself then mail in the rebate. Out of curiosity I called directv themselves and asked them if it would be any cheaper for them to send me the equipment instead. Well not only did they send out the equipment two days later, but it didn't cost me any more to have them install it. After watching some people at work install one for our lounge, even a small fee would have been fine. I hope this helps. I used to have AT&T digital (now comcast) and had their top package. The price for the comparable package for directv is the same price or cheaper so cost really isn't an issue. I like the programming better and have never regreted the decision to switch.

75 channels on basic cable. If I can't find anything good to watch, I'll go work in the garage, ride the bike, or chase the wife around.

Now, New Years Eve- 12 hours of 3 Stooges on AMC. I was so there!

ago to ATT Broadband, when they were cable provider and we did not have Speed in sfo yet.. They said they were unable to let customers "pick and choose",like that. Bull****. Ya- i hear the DISH has problems with wetness/snow: you may have to install a defroster for it and some sort of umbrella: Gotta have David Hobbs turn-by turn commentary for the F1 season. You cancelled- no more Speed? wow- i would be lost: would have to watch regular TV, yuck.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
