Oh good. I would tell my congressman all my cable problems to, because they have so much extra time on their hands. While you are at it, tell them about the customer device at walmart. Every thing is in their control.
Not good enough. I have a DVR box and a DTS that are both frozen. There is no reason the DTS should behave this way, and a power off does nothing.As for the DVR, I wonder how much C-SPAN it is recording instead of my favorite shows.
I understand the need for the system, and the seriousness of the matter that triggered it, but this is a matter of your gear not working as it should.
Under no circumstandes should EAS break your service. This is a design problem, and judging by the age of the thread, one you have had plenty of time to fix, but have no will to fix.
I'll write my congressman since clearly you do not listen to complaining customers.
Sometimes you can clear up problems such as this by unplugging the box's power for a moment, then plugging it back in. You will temporarily lose program guide data, but it will be replenished over a few hours.
