So in the long trip to get a working TiVo with FiOS service, I’ve hit another snag. Verizon insists on sending someone to my house to install the cable cards. Why, I ask? Because they are fragile. (It costs $100 to replace them if they break.) Yikes.
So after UPS (and I hate UPS) screwed up the TiVo delivery (and Amazon refunded 10% of the purchase price to ease the pain of that) I had to reschedule the technician visit. That Friday, I reschedule for next Friday, which was the first possible day available. *grumble*
On Monday, the technician showed up, of course. So we sent him away, and I called Verizon again. They showed no record of the cancellation or the reschedule. So I scheduled Friday again, which was hard since Friday was actually full now.
Today, of course, no technician is coming. I just called. No record of my call.
Now, it’s scheduled for Wednesday the 6th. But they gave me a confirmation # this time, so I guess it’s really true.
But, at least I’m not as bad off as this guy.
