Due a glitch I mistakenly wrote over the original thread so this is a rewrite.
While I have not seen eye to eye with xbulder on all of his comments it is important that I publicly state that it is easy to see that xbulder is dedicated to helping us all to better understand the hearing aid business and its many and varied products. In the short time that I have been a member of this forum I have learned a great deal from xbulders contributions so when you read that I may be questioning his answers it does not mean that I do not value or respect him.
Keep up the good work xbulder.
Now if I could just figure out how to get my hearing aids to transmit in dolby digital 5.1 audio. HA! HA!
