    Dave, just so I'm sure I'm getting this from the right place, I get mayfair from:

    Correct.

    Get one then decide. I'm still dragging my feet but will definitely be pulling the plug on Comcast.

    I just got around to installing this morning so I'll report back how college football is today. I've got pretty fast internet so if it fails I'm out less than $65 for the effort. Worth the risk.

    After a day+ of watching this I can say the following good:

    1. Buffering is not an issue, at least for me and that's on wireless.
    2. It's just a stupid amount of options for the price.
    3. Mayfair is a must

    I can also say the following bad:

    1. The picture is nowhere near as good as my DirecTv. Maybe I have something set wrong but even when I clearly select a channel broadcast in 1080 I get a picture that looks more like old SD than 1080. This isn't a wireless issue as I'm not getting buffering at all.
    2. The picture will get jagged at times.
    3. Not having the ability to "start from the beginning" kinda sucks. You have to start watching a show/movie whenever it's scheduled and can't be even a couple minutes late.
    4. No DVR is a deal breaker for the wife.

    Overall if you want the sports packages without paying $100+ each it's certainly worth every penny and more, but I personally don't see it as a replacement for DTV just yet.

    Adding to the list of bad:
    5: Mayfair guide doesn't load today, just a white screen.

    If I didn't know better I would think the picture is better. It's just perfect.

    I'm watching the Bears game now and it's right on time.

    There are add ons that you can watch any show from any season. It's like a dvr. Better because it has no commercials .

    The best advice is, that you just need to play around with it. Everything is there.

    I didn't get an email and everything is working fine. I have no idea what you have going on.

    That's if you get it through a firestick. If you went through kodi, you don't have to do anything.

    Dave, if you still have those boxes like you sent me before, I'll take another one.

    Let me know.

    jack@madjacksports.com

    Thanks.

    Ok. Plus you may want to sign up before nov 1, to be grandfathered in. Something good is changing. Always for the better.

    Seems to have stopped working for me, at least partially. I can still watch through the Mayfair guide, but if I go directly to the GearsTV app it says it's checking for an update then immediately says "gears has stopped working" and shuts down the app.

    Any suggestions?

    Go through kodi, and do the gears of war build. There's a 6 minute video on you tube that explains it.

    Are any of you guys using a VPN for the fire stick type stuff?

    I'm planning on dumping cable now that I found a way for my wife to watch her channels, with a DVR, but without the high cable bill. YouTube TV and Philo cover all the channels and both have a DVR option. I'm going to do a test run before officially making the switch, but I think I got it covered. Bought an antenna in case the network channels on YouTube TV aren't good enough.
