If you are only getting the locals and pay HDs, then it's not a box or HDMI issue, it's a setup issue. Can you log into to My Verizon and see what you are setup for? It sounds like to me they did not set you up on Extreme HD from the get go and are trying to resolve it the wrong way.
I agree. It sounds like the account is not setup properly and is not subscribed to the exteme package. Or it is and the STBs do not know it. Tech support should be able to see this.
Hello. I'm sorry that you aren't getting everything that you have been paying for, I will work with you to get that fixed. When you go to the "missing" HD Channels, what message appears on your screen? Does it say "Not Subscribed", or does it say "Channel Currently Unavailable"?
