    Cancelled Time Warner for DirecTV

    I just signed up with TWC. I'll be saving approx $50/month vs. Directv/HTC internet (local cable/DSL provider). I've been with D* for 6 years this April but they have priced themselves out of the market here. This was the first year I went without Sunday Ticket as the yearly price increase has...

    What's the best way to do this without having to buy D* expensive wireless card?

    NFL Sunday Ticket Poll

    Yes, but I got SF for free due to a D* screw up (their fault) with another situation. I am an Eagles fan and, obviously being in SC I'm out of market, it's the only way I can watch them. I have to say, I DO NOT like the fact that the price keeps increasing. I expect it will be over $250 this...

    Moving my satellite dish

    Thanks for the info, guys. Much appreciated. I will be printing out the FCC guidelines and sending it to the HOA. A little more background info: I specifically called and asked the builder, who still own/ran the community, on the day of the install about this when I had it installed because the...

    Moving my satellite dish

    Since I live in a community that decided they wanted to have an HOA, I now have to move the dish from the side of the house to the rear after 4.5 years in the current location. Can anyone tell me what exactly would be involved in moving it? I would like to just be able to maybe lengthen the wire...

    Best buy or Directv

    BB is also good for open box deals on occasion. I saved $100 on a SD DVR a few years back this way.

    DirecTV to add 44 HD local markets (Updated with Launch Schedule)

    ^Waiting patiently (Myrtle Beach). Question: When you call and speak to a CSR, do they actually know when a certain market will be added or when they say "I don't know" is that just a deflection? I mention this because I called tonight and asked (other issues, too) and got the "I don't know".

    Sweet Sunday Ticket deal for me

    ^Agree. I got a free HD-DVR last year when they were still $399, $10 off per month, and free Superfan. Great deal, I think, but I've been with D* for 4.5 years at this point. Just got Superfan for free last week due to a billing error. Didn't even ask, they just gave it to me.

    Any specials running now for current customers?

    I called tonight to ask a couple of unrelated questions but asked about any current specials and was told there are none. However, I've gotten some free crap lately like Superfan so the above posters statements may explain that.

    DirecTV announces new local H/D DMA's(Local HD Programming In 76 Markets by Mid-2008)

    You know, I come to this thread to see if there are any new HD local announcements and what do I find? A bunch of freaking anti-D* nonsense. Seriously, "Questioner" with no answers, shut the heck up. Another perfectly good thread ruined by a bunch of freaking nonsense that is completely off topic.

    Installer Gone Wild

    This DOES reflect on D*. Whether you like it or not, it does. They are representing the company so in the end, D* will be held responsible. When I make a service call, I'm calling D* not the local contractor so since D* is sending the person out, it falls on their shoulders. The folks on this...

    Screen "smudges"?

    Thanks. Appreciate the help.

    Screen "smudges"?

    Yes, they were never there when I bought but have appeared over time. I'm wondering if it has anything to do with the projection apparatus, like dust on the mirror or something of that nature.

    Screen "smudges"?

    I have a JVC HD-56G787 56" DLP. There are "blotches" or "smudges" on the screen that seem to be getting more plentiful. They are on the screen itself and not the result of bad reception. I've cleaned it numerous times with a non-ammonia based window cleaner and it doesn't seem to get any better...

    hd pricing

    Yup, there it is, plain as day "...won't cost HD subscribers an extra dime". Very misleading. Of course, when you think about it, they aren't lying. It doesn't cost AN extra dime, it costs 50 of them. Ah, I'm not going to sweat an extra $5 a month when I got a $399 HD-DVR for free. Of course, I...

    Tell me what you think of this

    Of course I would be because I've seen folks time after time on this very forum get the exact same deal that I got, albeit with less headaches. Considering the morons they've been sending out, my negativity is most certainly warranted. BTW, your wire routing is incorrect. There is no...

    Install Saturday 6am-8am

    When the job is done right, they are. But I forgot. Apparently, installers are flawless God's who should be treated as royalty. Sorry, but there are just as many fools among them as there are in other professions.
