Of course, bad things don't travel alone and my Verizon Internet is not working properly either. The router seems to be having a problem. I also spoke to them about that last week and the technician did some of this and some of that and had me do some o whatever and it seemed to get somewhat better and then got worse again. Now, instead of my connection being extremely slow, I intermittently lose the signal altogether.
When I went over the television and Internet problems with the technician tonight, he told me that pixilation problems I have had watching on demand movies is due to the Internet router as the movies come over the Internet. Go figure, I would have thought they came over the fiber optic cable. He said the other problems I have been having are due to the set-top box.
He made the soonest available morning appointment for me, to have a technician come to my house, and that will be on Thursday morning. No TV until then unless I watch upstairs in the living room which may or may not happen. because that is the domain of she who must be adored. Hopefully my Internet service will not go completely out too - that would drive me to do something like cleaning guns, as I did tonight because the TV was out, and I only have about a day's worth left to clean. If I run out of them to clean I may have to fix something in the house - perish the thought.
All the best,
