    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...

    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

    (I was going to post this in classifieds, but it wouldn't let me for some reason) Anywho, I'm wanting to upgrade my parent's directv receiver to a DirecTivo. I don't want the newer DirecTV DVR's that don't use tivo and have to be leased. I have a DirecTivo for myself (RCA DVR80) and just want to...

    DTV Account questions

    It seems a few things have changed on the DirecTV website/my account page since they updated their site. Under my programming options, it says the following: "You are currently subscribed to a package that we no longer offer, however you can choose to retain this package if you like." This...

    Sports Pack questions

    Since Comcast took over the Chicago market for sports (Cubs, Bulls, Blackhawks, etc), I have not had a Fox Sports Net station. (which up till now has been fine with me) However, the Oregon/Illinois game will be on Fox Sports Net on Saturday. (go Illini!!) So I debated on whether or not to spend...

    Refer a friend is a joke...

    Anyone planning on referring their friends to DirecTV under the new referral offer needs to rethink those plans. I recently did that and got screwed out of my $50 credit. I printed out the page from the DirecTV site and put my account number on it for my coworker to call. She did exactly what...

    10/12: Champaign/Decatur/Spingfield, IL Locals

    Looks like the rumors are true... I got up this morning and poked in my zip code on the DTV site and my locals showed up! I ordered them and am awaiting the receiver to download whatever it has to do for it to work. Here's the list of channels we get in the Champaign/Decatur/Springfield, IL...

    RCA DRD435RH latest software?

    I've got an RCA DRD435RH in the other room and was wondering what the latest software version was out there? I got mine last year and never hooked it up to a phone line, so I'm guessing it's still running the same version as the day I got it. I'm wanting to force update it, but I don't see that...

    72.5 dish setup

    It's been a long day already, so here's the scoop. I started out the day at a bright and early 5:00am to begin the installation. I already have one single dish with a dual LNB and the goal was to install the 2nd dish and multiswitch to point at the 72.5 bird. I was informed last week on this...

    4x4 multiswitch

    I was wondering if anyone knew of a company or individual on here that had the 4x4 multiswitches in stock at a reasonable price? I'm referring to the one that has 4 inputs (2 from each dual lnb) and 4 outputs. I'm wanting one so I can hook up the 2 dishes required for my locals. (72.5 for locals...

    THE NEW 72.5 SATELLITE LOCALS THREAD

    I was browsing around and ran across this site that shows several switches as well as dates that each city will supposedly be getting their locals: * September 28, 2004 - Toledo, OH * October 5, 2004 - Champaign, IL; Tri-Cities, TN; Ft. Wayne, IN * October 12, 2004 - Cedar Springs, IA...

    Single vs. Multiple LNB's?

    Since I don't have HDTV capabilities yet, what is the advantage of upgrading from a regular dish with one dual LNB to a bigger dish with multiple LNB's? Do I gain any additional channels with the other satellites? My locals will most likely be on the 72.5 bird, so I'll have to get a 2nd dish for...

    Failed while loading series error

    I just got an RCA DirecTV DVR80 this afternoon and I've been enjoying it. (as best I can with only one sat input at the moment!) Anywho, when I have it connect to update the software, it spends about an hour online and then disconnects with the following error: "Failed while loading series"...

    New DVR owner..

    I just got back from Circuit City where I purchased a nifty RCA DVR80 DirecTV DVR for $99. I'm only using the one sat input at the moment since I only have a dual LNB. (the other coax is going to the receiver in the other room) This whole pausing live TV thing is really freaking cool. I flipped...

    DIY installation?

    I am considering switching from DirecTV to DISH Network so I can get my local channels. (they're eventually coming to DirecTV, but that would require installing 2 dishes) I went to 2 local retailers (Radio Shack and Sears) here in town and they both informed me that the only way to get DISH...

    Local Channel availability...

    I've been a DirecTV customer since 1997 and recently found this great forum. Back in the spring I started seeing a notice both on the directv website and channel 999 that local channels were coming to my area in 2004. Granted I have an outdoor antenna, but it's a pain in the rear to turn the...
