    Renewal up- What to ask for?

    Hmm.. So it appears DirectTV does not upgrade any existing equipment to renewing customers? They offer nothing at all? Hmm. Well, I will definitely tell them about my issue with it and see what they have to say. I thought at time of renewel they would just give you the latest equipment anyway if...

    Renewal up- What to ask for?

    How do I update my HD GUI without getting a new box? I rather keep the box (not lose my recording), but update the software on it. Is that possible?

    Renewal up- What to ask for?

    So, it is a software update only to make it faster? Or do I need new boxes to get the latest GUI? I just want the response time to be faster than it is. I think Ill demand the latest boxes. I know Ill lose all my DVR recordings, but the slowness is killing me. I also want atleast another free HD...

    Renewal up- What to ask for?

    My 2 YRs will be up in 02/2012. Now, I am not pleased with the slowness of the HR22 DVR box. It takes too long to change channels and response time overall is too slow for me. If I were to renew (which I am planning on), what DVR box should I ask for? What would be the latest model that will be...

    Free NFL package?

    I am currently getting ALL the NFL games without subscribing to the NFL package. How is this possible?? I do have the MLB package and hit the scorecard button. When I hit that button, it shows all the NFL games and I can go to 'watch now' and select the NFL HD channels. Is this just a...

    "Another RARE occurrence" haha Twins vs Rays blackout

    So, now there are 2 games I cant watch. DirecTV needs to change their statement to: Every week, you are GUARANTEED to not get atleast 1 game or more.

    "Another RARE occurrence" haha Twins vs Rays blackout

    Not 'God', but 'Jesus' is the correct term. Yes, I dont mind watching Jesus, but I also would like to watch Liriano too. It just upsets me every single week there are games I can not watch. I do blame DirectTV because they should do not make it clear that you will miss atleast 1 GAME a week...

    "Another RARE occurrence" haha Twins vs Rays blackout

    So here we go again, another week, another weekend, another game I CANT watch..even though I pay $200 for this trash package. Twins vs. Rays - DirecTV says check my local listings. Well guess what - its not on my 'local listings'. Right now my 'local listings' are showing the Nats vs Mets. I...

    Baseball

    I am hearing 'rare' used way too often..which means this is now becoming a common occurance. This happened few weeks ago too. This is trash. For the $$ we are paying for games and not have one single game available as of 9PM on Saturday is a disgrace. These rules are a joke and only benefit...

    Embarrasing - Response time for remote

    Is the HR24 a free upgrade? I suppose its not. I just got Direct installed in Feb for first time and the HR22 is what was given to me for free.

    Embarrasing - Response time for remote

    Dish is not an option - no MLB package. If I was not into sports (like my wife), I would buy dish and save money. But I need to watch Baseball!! I did not realize Comcast offers MLB. If Time Warner offered MLB too, I might re-consider going back to them (cringe). I could not stand the TW...

    Embarrasing - Response time for remote

    I have the HR22, Slim installed. Going thru the channels is like getting the plague or ebola. So painful. Add the MLB package, and you have a full blown disease!! By time the 'Scorecard' button appears, an entire inning will pass you by. Its embarassing...just a disgrace. Why cant DirecTV...

    MLB Network blackout question

    How come on the MLB MIX channel, I can view and hear the YES network, but when I click on the channel - it says not available! So, the blackout does not concern MLB MIX smaller channels? Hahaha. It makes no sense.
