Adam, I am not attempting to defend the Fireview as I will do the same for any stove out there! It is a simple fact about burning wood. Your method of testing for dryness, that is, "The wood I had was dry enough to split cleanly and made a high pitch when knocked together." Sorry lad, that is about as poor of a method as I've heard yet. Why? Because wood will split best when it is freshly cut! That does not mean the wood is dry and ready to burn. What is a high pitch? That could have a different meaning to different people but no matter, that is a poor indicator of the wetness or dryness of the wood.
You no doubt will be happy with a new stove and we wish you well with it. Are you planning on selling the Fireview?
I think your missing the intent of the answers Adam. As you said money is tight, they are trying to help you NOT to have to spend even more money on another stove that may or may not solve your problem but use the current stove in the best way in which experience shows work. They are suggestions are based on many years of experience and solving many similar problems.
Just my two cents.
Obviously you can't take a joke.
So how about this, I will swap you a brand new NC 30 for your fireview.
