    Who can I raise hell with at Directv?

    I already mentioned it earlier in this thread. Then I was flamed by "Senior Member" Chaddie-boy because he made assumptions on how I went about things with d*. I responded, and my response was deleted, while that a$$hole chadzx11's post is still here. Why is some little prick like that...

    Who can I raise hell with at Directv?

    - HDDVR + HD receiver + regular DVR for $289 up front. (csr did not put in 2nd. HD receiver) - ONE YEAR commitment (s/b 2) - $29 / month for 1st 10 months for programming (is $49) - free HBO, SHOWTIME/ Cinemax for 3 months, then any 1 movie package for free as long as I stay with the...

    Who can I raise hell with at Directv?

    No, I have no proof. I asked the csr to email me with all of the details, and of he said "yes", then never did it. I would like to cancel just to make sure he gets no commision for the sale.

    Who can I raise hell with at Directv?

    The CSR must have received some sort of credit for closing the deal. They must be able to know who it is. I'll admit it sounded a little too good to be true, and that is why I called back to confirm, but the guy flat out lied to me on about 5 different key points. I guess I will call back as...

    Who can I raise hell with at Directv?

    I know with Dish, you can email the ceo if you are not happy, but who do you contact at Directv if you feel you are getting jerked around? I just signed up, and the csr promised a lot of stuff to me in order to reel me in. I have already called back once to make sure I was getting the deal...

    I have to cancel E*...options/opinions?

    Both installers that looked at it said the same thing about D* being a wide open shot for me. (one looked like they worked for E*-at least they had a very official looking van) Also, my looking at the angle of my neighbor's D* dish, it would make sense that I could get it. Don't ask me why.....

    The installer that came today also does D*, and he said we had a clear shot of all 5.....

    I have to cancel E*...options/opinions?

    Don't think I didn't consider it. But there are about 5 of them (one is my neighbors), and they are all about 80 feet high.....

    I have to cancel E*...options/opinions?

    When E* came out to do my HD upgrade, they could not get a signal. (trees) Another installer came out...same story. Also recently, the trees around my house and my neighbors have gotten so bad that my regular E* signal only comes through about 75% of the time. Lots of "aquiring signal" messages...

    ALL VOOM TO GO MPEG4 AUGUST 15th

    Call back. I got a different answer every time. One guy said I needed to pay the $249 upgrade again...one person said my programming would go up $17/month for the same thing package. I have a 942 and an 811 (2 hdtvs and 1 sdtv) Bottom line for me is my programming will be $5 less for 10...

    ALL VOOM TO GO MPEG4 AUGUST 15th

    I currently have AT 100+ locals + HD + voom. (no movie packages) I spoke with Dish today, and they said that my monthly fee would go from 71.95 to 88.96 after the 10 month $10 credit. ($12 of that would be lease fees- I currently pay $5 or $6). Almost $90/month for AT100 + HD + locals...

    Dish Network Promo Ads- Xrated Tacky

    Last night, I was watching "Nick at Night", and a commercial came on for "Leave it to Beaver". I was hoping it was an ad for a porn movie, but no such luck......:devil:

    FIRST LOOK: Dish 500+ Dish 1000+ and the Dish 1000.2!

    Just explain to your wife that the Soap Channel will be moving to the other dish. For what it's worth- I have 2 dishes now. I have not upgraded yet from my 942/811 setup, but I talked to 2 different csrs in the last week, and both told me that when I upgraded, they would be replacing my 2...

    Anyone else gettin screwed?

    Nice. With all of the equipment you are leasing, and all of the programming you are paying for, you are smart not to put up with the usual csr garbage, and they were smart not to continue jerking you around.

    Anyone else promised a "free" upgrade?

    How did you get that???

    Anyone else promised a "free" upgrade?

    When I called to inquire, they did say that there would be a $200 rebate on it after April 1st, making my net outlay an extra $99, still not "free", but still a lot after already shelling out $250. Maybe I will wait and see what the deal is when we get closer to Bears season...I guess no rush...

    Anyone else promised a "free" upgrade?

    Because: 1) I would have all of my locals in HD, (I only get 3 out of 6 majors right now, and one missing one is local pro football) 2) So I can have the latest and greatest, I guess 3) Because the CSR told me the upgrade would be no charge, dammit......

    Anyone else promised a "free" upgrade?

    I "leased" a 942 last June when I signed up. I questioned the CSR about the $250upfront lease fee, mentioning that I knew MPEG4 would be coming soon, and I didn't want to pay a $250 surcharge if the equipment would be obsolete in a year or so. The CSR reassured me that by paying this upfront...

    Quantity or Quality in Your HD channels?

    Thanks for your polite and intelligent response. BTW- Your list of "worthwhiles" sucks. I wouldn't take any of those crap channels, with the exception of the "extra HD movie channels", and most other people wouldn't, either. HD Anime??????? Gimme a break. Do you collect Yu Ghi Oh! cards...

    Quantity or Quality in Your HD channels?

    This was an issue going back to the VOOM days. Sure, quality is great, and it is why we bought our sets. But at what point do you get bored with repetition that fewer channels would show? Why not combine some of the Voom channels, and just have less repetition? Here are your choices: 6...
