Took the titration test.

With my luck, I am certain it's the brick. How does it end?

I'm pretty sure it's the brick, it has a humidifier though. Does that make a difference?

Any chance you can get the Dr. to modify the Rx to a Auto unit?

If so we will find the words.

I can ask her to, but what should I do if I get stuck with this brick? Will it help me at all?

It will make it very difficult to optimize your therapy.  In my opinion you should follow the advice given in this thread and refuse the machine.   Ask for your prescription and take it elsewhere.  At the end of the day, the clinic is out to make as much money as possible.  If you threaten to take your prescription elsewhere, they make $0.   As Sleeprider and others have said, now is the most leverage you will have - USE IT!  You need to take responsibility for your health and refuse any machine you do not want.
