He's right. Me and my engineering buds always have a good laugh at cable companies. Unfortunately, a lot of fools on this forum allow this crap to proliferate; we laugh at them too. The unfortunate thing is that when idiots on this forum make public support for this garbage, those who don't know better get sold into it. So saying "if you can't 'hear' it, don't buy it" doesn't cut it.
It is an assault on intelligence and technology and has to stop.
You should see how angry I get when people start trying to sell this crap around me.
