To move completely away from it, I would suggest a DECT 6.0 phone, we just got one with 6 handsets with zero interference on both the wireless LAN and the phones themselves.

And with the transparent menus, it would be nice to customize them with a few offered colors and fonts; it would make it easier for some to view their guides/commands, and it could make for a more personalized viewing experience.

You could set an alert up to a week prior to the show you wanted to watch and at that time the show started no matter what channel you were on an alert would appear at the bottom of the screen to ask you if you wanted to go that channel to watch it.Also wish AT&T would color code the programs to distinguish between sports and movies. The guide is a little hard to see against the lightblue back ground.Other than that they installed my uverse the day they said,Had minor problems ..they did not hook up VCR like I had prior.Had to do it myself.Anyone having problems with internet?I was having some problems logging on ..and troubleshooted with Rep on the phone for 4 hrs.Not sure what we did im really not a Computer person I just followed directions. We got .He was very pleaseant and very patient.We ended up think that it was my cordless phone that may have been disrupting the signal from the router.My cordless phone is 2.4GHz which is the same fregriency as the router.He recommended getting one higher 5.GHz. worth a try.

If only the KDS series passed the digital audio feed from the HDMI out to the optical out on the TV, that would help out a bunch. I don't know if the Bravia does this, but I know the KDS doesn't (at least the 2000 series doesn't anyways)

Technical details...Frequency: 1880-1900 MHz in Europe, 1920-1930MHz in the US
January 5 2006. The DECT Forum, the globally acting industry association embracing suppliers and operators of DECT based terminals, announces today the availability of DECT 6.0 cordless telephony in the USA. DECT communication products utilize the appropriate frequency band of 1920 - 1930 MHz which has been allocated recently by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for Unlicensed Personal Communications Services (UPCS).

Obi_Wan, That is how I have my hardware setup (Digital optical from your STB to a sound system). Ever since I received the 3988 update the audio on my HD channels is totally distorted when using the digital audio. If I'm on an SD channel the audio is fine, but as soon as I switch over to an HD channel the audio is distorted. Are you not having any distorted audio using the digital optical?
Obi_Wan wrote:the 2020 does.. however you get a better sound if you run the HDMI AND a Digital optical from your STB to a sound system. Then let the AV Receiver control everything... sounds expensive if you do it with Monster cables, but I promise you, I got (2) 6ft HDMI, (1) 3ft HDMI and (2) 3ft Digital Optical cables with shipping for less than $40 on one website.If you need custom lengths, say 4'4", I have a website that will "custom" make them for you... the 1 meter (3ft 3") fiber optic was 12.95 plus S&H ... price them anywhere else and you will see how the "big box" stores make their money
