Cable TV "service"

And in the best tradition of cable TV companies everywhere: Comcast cancelled my appointment for this morning and didn't bother to let me know. I waited through the 3-hour appointment window, then called to discover this. It took calls to 2 different toll-free numbers to find out why.

They now say that the problem (can't get to the "on demand" part of the digital cable, though everything else works) doesn't need wiring. The supervisor of the clueless phone-bank person told her to tell me that the connection will be reset and everything will then work. I told Clueless that the technician that came out before did that--but she's clueless, and can only relay what she's told and apologize. Oh, and she doesn't know why no one called to let me know the appointment was cancelled. And she'll follow up after the reset is done, she said.
