    CBS and NFL Screw Up

    Same thing happened here in Champaign, IL. I don't have Sunday Ticket, but I was planning on watching the Bears/Chiefs on my local CBS channel. After the Colts game concluded, they went to the Bengals/Browns game even though we were scheduled to see the Bears game at 3:00pm central. Our local...

    Telefutura?

    Well, bad news on Telefutura. The response from DirecTV is I need to subscribe to the Basico package to get it. ($29.99/mo) However, I don't even see Telefutura listed on their channel listing: DIRECTV - BÁSICO I'd think it'd be something they'd add to the sports pack which I already have. I...

    Telefutura?

    Yeah, I just did that and am awaiting their response. I figured someone on here might know. :) Either way it sounds like I'll need to get a different dish.

    Telefutura?

    I noticed that TeleFutura is covering the SuperLiga soccer matches, though I can't find it on my DirecTV system. According to DirecTV's programming guide, it should be on 431 though I have nothing on 431. I'm assuming either I need a different dish setup to receive this channel (I just have 101...

    New Names & Price's for DirecTv Packages

    So what's the difference between my current Total Choice Plus + Tivo/DVR fee and the new Choice Xtra? (besides the price) Should I just stick with what I have, or upgrade? I can't really tell what the difference is. Thanks!

    Free Preview of NASCAR HotPass This Sunday

    This crap sucks. They have stupid announcers talking throughout the race. I thought I'd be able to hear the driver/crew chief talking with multiple camera angles. At least they keep one window of the race on during the commercial. But way too much babbling by announcers. I definitely wouldn't...

    Christmas Letdown

    Well after a 20 minute phone call with DirecTV, the DVR is up and running! I had them switch it from leased to owned as well, so there won't be any contract extensions per the CSR. :) Of course I then had to spend an hour waiting for v6.2 to download as this was still running 3.1.1e. :eek: Now...

    Christmas Letdown

    Well the new card came today, not via Fedex but via USPS priority mail! There was no signature required, imagine that. I will attempt to activate it later tonight, hopefully there's no further problems. Wish me luck! :)

    Christmas Letdown

    Well I received a card from the guy I bought the receiver from (still sealed in its package) but they wouldn't let me use that one nor the one from the old receiver. I must have gotten the new CSR folks that were just out to make money for the company. :)

    Christmas Letdown

    That sucks! A lot of companies need to completely rethink their customer service centers. Everyone needs to be on the same page because this stuff is nuts. I guess that's another lesson learned, never call customer service on Christmas! You'll get all the ticked off people who were stuck working...

    Christmas Letdown

    See now that makes more sense to me. :) I wasn't really in the mood to hang up and call again on Christmas day. (plus my cell phone needed charged too) That does suck about getting stuck with a 2 year commitment, but oh well. I like the service and programming from DirecTV, so 2 years shouldn't...

    Christmas Letdown

    :D I'm not even going to ask about that. I'll await my $25 piece of plastic to show up. Actually it was $20 for the card and $5 for the CSR to order it on the phone. :)

    Christmas Letdown

    I asked them that very question and they wouldn't let me. Not sure if it's technically not possible or if they just wanted my $25.

    Christmas Letdown

    Well what good is it if the receiver includes a brand new access card if I have to go buy a new one from DirecTV? When I bought my DVR a few years back I was able to swap it with no problem and use the access card that came with it. Granted that was from Circuit City, so maybe that makes a...

    Christmas Letdown

    Well I decided to purchase a refurbished DVR-40 off eBay for my parents as a Christmas gift. I had the seller throw in a new & sealed access card as well at no additional cost. So after surprising my parents with it this morning and running a 2nd 100 foot coax cable out to the multiswitch, I...

    Looking for a DirecTivo

    Well I bit the bullet and ordered a DVR40 off eBay yesterday. Hopefully that will do the trick and make my parents happy for Christmas. :) Thanks!! Stan
