We have the main hub and every other television has a really small black box (not much bigger than the box that a new men's wallet might come in). I can't complain coz I can start a movie in one room and continue watching it in another room. I can bounce around the house all day like that if I wanted.
We had Dish network ages ago and loved it.
Even though central FL is the lightning capital of the world.
True.
We only lost the satellite once through 4 hurricanes and it was for 30 minutes.

Wow! What small black boxes.
And I do prefer the ability to watch from room to room..
Lord knows these brain cells of mine neeeeeed continuity.

Sounds like you got a good deal. We have DirectTV and the wireless DVR system. We have the main hub and every other television has a really small black box (not much bigger than the box that a new men's wallet might come in). I can't complain coz I can start a movie in one room and continue watching it in another room. I can bounce around the house all day like that if I wanted. But the big clunky DVR boxes? Nope. No more of those things. If I get rid of DirecTV, it will be because I cut the cord.

Yes, you just keep smiling while I get all of the invoiced orders. I guess I'm gonna have enough money on my next invoiced disbursement to buy you and a couple others at least one Corona.  So I guess the drinks will be on me to some extent  :'(

So I receive this email yesterday from eBay: KEEP YOUR ACCOUNT IN GOOD STANDING - PAYMENT NEEDED
Ummm, nope.
My fees are paid automagically via Paypal.
I know my fees are paid because, I saw the charge go through and noted it in my books the day they went through.

What gave me a start?
It has the exact amount of my fees that had been paid this month to eBay.
Now, I know not to click on any links that come in an email (geeeesh) so I signed into my eBay and then Paypal from another browser.
Just to be on the safe side, I changed passwords at the same time.

All's well, fees show as zero, no messages via my dashboard from ebay.
Decided to visit the eBay forums and yep...
In case you received one (as it appears many have) of these emails:
Another Glitch per Ebay Customer Service Rep.
eBay Forum Discussion on Payment Needed

It was time for me to change my passwords anyway.

Wow!
I wonder if Amazon has 'opened' the gate to have this a much more viewed option for buyers.

Still nothing on my end.

Nope on Tivo.
Yep on DVR.
Which I'm thinking of getting rid of and just buying a used Tivo and a fios card to use.
What we pay for internet is dirt cheap (Thanks Frontier) and they threw EVERYTHING they offer in to retain our business.

We upgraded (at no additional charge) to the DVR with Frontier that works with Alexa voice. (nerd alert)

No cable boxes.
We use Amazon Firesticks and Chromecasts in the bedrooms.
Just sold my Apple TV which I made more on it than I paid (eBay)

We have a Netflix account (with five persons ability) and share with our family members.

My children don't and haven't had cable.
They use Firesticks and Chromecast along with subscriptions to HULU and their Amazon Prime and our family Netflix.

My nephew uses HULU Live, Amazon Prime and Netflix with his smart tvs (apps are on the tv).
I asked if he had purchased a Tivo for shows and this made perfect sense to me.
With HULU Live you receive 52 Hours of recorded shows.
You decide what you want to watch, schedule it via HULU Live, it's in the cloud when you want to watch it.

Geeks.
One and All.
Must run in the family.

Really good insight on this subforum:

I am liking this. I wonder how long this can stave off implementation and collection of other states' sales taxes?
