Don't Waste Time

  • The Verizon FIOS installation left me with several issues I'll have to deal with. The phone system backup battery pack was mounted too close to the floor. The installer knew that a moveable shelf needed to be returned to near the wall when he was done. Apparently he didn't have a ruler to measure. The clearance between the bottom of the box and the top of the lower shelf is too close. The television in the basement has it's own program guide and on-screen channel display. He left me with no channel number display. I have no idea how to make either the FIOS or the TV displays work. I'll bet this will take hours of reading and phone calls to get it working. Oh well, some say that change is fun.
