    NFL Ticket ?

    Here's my discount success story: I called Directv back tonight and told them that I was offered $20 off for 6 consecutive months to keep the NFL Sunday Ticket. The customer rep. couldn't find that as an offer, so she noted my account and transferred me to a different department. The next rep...

    NFL Ticket ?

    I think some of the customer service reps may be confused. The Directv website states that the early bird special is a discount of $20 for the year. I called to explain that I may need to cancel because it was getting too expensive and he told me that the best offer is the offer that all...

    Can you help a novice with what could be a simple problem?

    I haven't had any problems over the last week or so. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

    Can you help a novice with what could be a simple problem?

    We did have strong winds and rain before my problem started, but I didn't think that was the cause because it's only the one station that I am having trouble with.

    Can you help a novice with what could be a simple problem?

    When I said that the connectins look fine, it was in response to the Directv rep asking me to look at the connections for my setup (receiver, tv, surround sound, etc.) to make sure that there weren't any loose connections. So when I say everything is fine, that's what I mean.

    Thank you for the insight. Do you know which transponder and which satellite NBC (KXAN Austin) is on?

    Can you help a novice with what could be a simple problem?

    I am having trouble with my local NBC station in Austin, TX. For the past two weeks sometimes shows pixelate making them unwatchable. Other times it won't happen for a couple of hours. I called Directv customer service and they said the don't see anything wrong on their end. They told me to call...

    NFL Sunday Ticket

    I decided to go ahead and give it a try and it worked. I don't mind paying $270 for the Sunday Ticket, but I want the games in HD and I refuse to pay extra since I already pay for HD service. All is well for me now.

    NFL Sunday Ticket

    Is there a code on the postcard that people are getting in the mail for free Superfan? I haven't got the postcard, but if there isn't a code, I assume I could call and say I got it in the mail, right?

    "Moving" from Austin, TX to Cleveland OH-Is It Possible?

    Sorry if I was being confusing. I live in Austin, but I want to change my service address to Cleveland so I get Fox Sports Ohio and Sportstime Ohio games and they won't be blocked. I understand I won't get Cleveland locals such as NBC, ABC, etc. but I can still pull in the Austin locals with an...

    "Moving" from Austin, TX to Cleveland OH-Is It Possible?

    I knew I wouldn't be able to get the Cleveland locals, but I thought that I could possibly be able to get Fox Sports Ohio and Sportstime Ohio. Does anyone else have any knowledge on this?

    "Moving" from Austin, TX to Cleveland OH-Is It Possible?

    I will be signing up for Directv service just north of Austin, TX but I want the convenience of having the Fox Sports Ohio and Sportstime Ohio. Will this move work for me? I know that I won't have my local Austin channles anymore, but I figured I could use an OTA antenna to pick up those...

    Info for those who lost OTA w/updates

    I got the same phone call that SatelliteGAL got asking for the same info. He also wanted a detailed description about the OTA problems I was experiencing. He said that they are working hard, but at the same time, they are confused because he said people shouldn't be having these problems. We'll...

    Anyone having trouble with Dish OTA HD tuners?

    I just got off the phone with a Dish technician. He called me to ask about the OTA problems that I was having (the constant yellow screen). He said that there have been many complaints about it and they are working hard to get it fixed ASAP. First he asked for a detailed description of what I...

    TOA1 on 622 New Software

    According to the e-mail, if our 622 is not in standby mode, we won't get the udpdate. Will we get another opportunity to get it later? Maybe overnight? I really need this update to fix my OTA problems. I am one of many who have contacted Dish's tech support about the problem.

    Anyone having trouble with Dish OTA HD tuners?

    I called Dish tech support and I was told that they were unaware of this problem (yeah right) and they will be working on it (whatever that means). Just sounds like an easy answer to get off the phone with an upset customer.

    Lost the OTA Tuner on my 622

    coozieman, satellitegal: I'm having the same problems as you in Virginia Beach, except mine cuts out for about an hour at a time, then will come back for awhile (very annoying). I contacted Dish's tech support. He told me that they were not aware of this problem (if you can believe that) but...

    Anyone having trouble with Dish OTA HD tuners?

    Having the same problem in Virginia Beach. NBC was the problem station before the 403 update; now I am getting 100 signal strength and the station is fine as long as it stays there, but it drops to 0 and cuts out. Last night it was out for about an hour and so were other OTA channels that I have...

    L4.03 on 622

    I got the 4.03 update this morning, but I'm not happy. From what I've been hearing, this update would fix the dropout problem on my OTA NBC channel. I'm still having the same problem, only now it's with NBC and ABC. Before the signals would be steady between 88-92, now they go from 100 to 70 to...
