    No Phone Line + Regional Sports Network

    If you download the latest national firmware update, you don't need a landline. I have always received all my programming without a landline. You can order PPV online with your username and pin, and all of your receivers will get all the PPV you ordered for the same price versus using the...

    Am I getting ripped off!?!?

    If you are performing a service, it should never come out of your own pay. If you are an independent contractor/HSP under contract maybe. But if you are employed by a HSP, I don't think you should have any expenses out of your pocket to benefit the HSP or DirecTV. How do you pay your bills...

    If you search Earls comments on DBStalk the current national release available for the HR20-700 will communicate appropritely to DirecTV without a phone line connected, if you have it networked with internet. The reason for this is DirecTV realizes many are going wireless and dropping twisted...

    CE will translate to a national release.

    DirecTV will always have issues with people taking credit, and I think CE is safe, while others claim otherwise to get under the skin and whine about damaged equipment. Sites should be honest when they take internal info and claim to be the author or authorized site to disclose this. This info...

    Do I need a land based phone line for service?

    You say they are statements of fact, but I'm not going to help a hostile person who is not nice. Statements of fact are truths not BS. :eek:

    Do I need a land based phone line for service?

    I don't care about the HR21, and you won't get facts that are accurate about that model from DBSTalk, but if you are patient you can do a search and learn how to use DirecTV's website to get the facts you need. I'm not getting paid to hold your hand.

    Do I need a land based phone line for service?

    Look you don't need to talk to anyone to get CE, or VOD, all you need to do is connect your receiver to the internet and you are good to go, no need to talk to you or DBSTalk. DBStalk and other sites go to DirecTV.com's help and forum site, and then take credit for what is posted to help...

    Do I need a land based phone line for service?

    You don't need to register with DBSTalk or any other site to download CE! If you had the technical knowledge you would know this. So it's clear you have issues with me, and I don't care. People will see through this and have the intelligence to see the truth. I have not registered with CE...

    Do I need a land based phone line for service?

    Well if this is accurate then DBStalk is inaccurate, and again proves my suspicion and confirmation with DirecTV that they are not an authorized site, and it's dishonest employees whom are leaking misinformation to take credit and make money on that site.

    CE will translate to a national release.

    Eventually all customers will get a national release of the CE or cutting edge, and many try to take credit for this (i.e other websites and dominant people). So if you are patient you will get it if you are worried about some of those who claim downloading them (CE) will turn your receiver...

    Do I need a land based phone line for service?

    If you have the latest national release, and you have a your IRD/STB/Receiver with an internet connection enabled, then that works the same as a telephone line. So no you don't need the telephone line if you have your Receiver on the Internet. You can order PPV's online with your account, this...

    Resetting a locked H20

    I don't use passwords but I can say on older receivers DirecTV can in fact erase the password block via satellite.

    No CE's this weekend

    I never made promises, I just said it was possible. Ever gone to Fox Woods and made a bet? You are in Connecticut, not far from me. Friday is coming, it will be here before you know it. I fell asleep, never tested it last weekend.

    No CE's this weekend

    Oh really, I don't think downloading causes the brick syndrome, you are not witnessing what these people are doing, so you can't truly say what caused the unit to stop functioning. It could be many factors. :hatsoff:
