After getting the run around from the first two people I talked to, I spoke with "cory". Here is the transcript in its entirety. Please be aware that if THEY are the ones at fault YOU still have to pay for it. It doesn't matter if THEY installed faulty equipment and your channel changes on its own, they want you to pay $95 for them to fix there own mistake. Otherwise they will not help you. Here is the transcript in its entirety.

kody : All I want is for you to provide television without the channels changing on there own. I have tried your methods to fix this, it still does it. To fix this you tried to charge me $95, twice, before saying you would try to resolve the problem by sending me a new box. I don't know how to hook those up and don't feel I should have to. I never signed up to do any installations. I just want my TV to work like its supposed to.
Cory (ID: L6F): I am sorry to hear that you are having issues.
Cory (ID: L6F): can you explain to me what you mean by the channels changing by themselves?
kody : well I researched this and for most people the problem is that they are on the same frequency with one of there neighbors or something. this is not the case here. The channels change on there own, twice every hour, at :03 and at :33 ( so like at 8:33, 6:03. 5:33) I've tried resetting the box, and doing what your support team instructed me to do, but it still does it. Cory (ID: L6F): ok.
Cory (ID: L6F): I am sorry that this is happening to you.
Cory (ID: L6F): What would you like me to do for you?
kody : Please send someone to install a new box or somehow stop it from changing channels on its own. I wouldn't care if I were in the same room to change it back but I am in a different room then the TV (using a splitter you installed instead of installing a remote in my bedroom) so I have to get out of bed every time it changes to change it back. I do not understand how boxes connect to TV's or anything like that so just sending a box would get me nowhere.
Cory (ID: L6F): I can do that, but there will be a fee to do so/ kody morse: why should I be charged a fee to fix defective equipment you gave me?
kody : your the ones who messed up here, I don't know why I'm being charged
Cory (ID: L6F): it is the expense involve in sending some one out.
kody : I understand that, but that expense should not be on me when all I am asking is for you to provide the service you agreed to provide me.
Cory (ID: L6F): the service plan, had you chosen to keep it, would have reduced that fee to $15.
kody : I shouldn't even be charged that. you are the ones who gave me defective equipment.
Cory (ID: L6F): I can add the service plan back on to your account, you must keep for 5 months, and the tech visit would be free.
kody : I do not want to pay for any extra service. unless the service plan is free, I do not want it. I just want my TV to work like its supposed to.
Cory (ID: L6F): I am sorry then, there is nothing else I can help you with. kody morse: so you won't provide the basic service you agreed to provide me with?
kody : you won't fix my defective equipment?
Cory (ID: L6F): you are not wanting to pay for a tech visit, Your session has ended. You may now close this window.
I laughed out loud when i saw this commercial. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GueIeauPfOg "if you do have a problem, you expect it to be handled quickly, preferably in person"- from the CEO himself. NOT UNLESS YOUR WILL TO PAY FOR IT THOUGH! (they dont tell you that part in the commercial).
