    What To Do With AM21?

    I bought a new house about a month ago and it has AT&T gigabit fiber internet, so I cut the cord and just do streaming and OTA antenna now. DIRECTV has received their equipment back, and I'm not missing the big bill from them. I have an AM21 left over. I can't do anything with it now without...

    Canceling Question

    Will I need to send the LNB back to DIRECTV when I cancel? Anything else I'll need to return other than the receivers? I'm going to be moving next month. The original plan was to close on the new house on April 7 and then close on my current house April 13, giving me about a week to have a...

    AT&T Service Question

    Wasn't sure whether to post this here or in the U-verse forum. At our old house we had AT&T U-verse (DSL, not fiber) internet and TV, and we were happy with it. They jacked the price up on TV, so I switched to DIRECTV (this was way before AT&T bought them) for better pricing on TV. We kept...

    Does anyone here know anything about this?

    I have a C61K in my living room attached to a Samsung 4K TV (UN65JS8500), and I get stuttering on the audio (and I occasionally notice a "stuttering" of the picture at the same time the sound stutters if I pay really close attention to it). I noticed it when they first hooked up the C61K a...

    Anyone Here Using the HR54 with an AM21?

    I just got the HR54 on Friday, and I have an AM21 that I've used with no problems for about 4 years with the HR34 that I had previously. I've got the AM21 connected to the HR54, and the HR54 sees it. I'm able to start the setup process, enter my primary market ZIP code, and then it goes to the...

    Recording Question

    OK...I don't think I've seen something like this asked on here before... My local CBS affiliate (WRAL, channel 5) and local NBC affiliate (WNCN, channel 17) are swapping their network affiliations this month on February 29. So, starting on the 29th WRAL will be NBC and WNCN will be CBS. I...

    Capitol Broadcasting Channels Blacked Out On DIRECTV

    Capitol Broadcasting (CBC) channels have been blacked out on DIRECTV after an agreement was not reached between the two. Their contract ended December 31, 2015, but CBC gave a temporary extension into this month. The channels were blacked out with little warning from CBC other than a Facebook...

    Is the referral site not working for anyone else?

    The referral site hasn't been working for me for at least 2 or 3 months now (maybe longer) - since well before the AT&T merger was approved, so I'm pretty sure that has nothing to do with it. When I try to go to Refer A Friend (either by clicking on the link after logging in to my account, or...

    Equipment Upgrade Question

    I currently have one Genie HR34-700 and two H25-100's that I've had for 3 years, plus one H25-500 that was added 2 years ago when we moved into our new house. I called DIRECTV this afternoon to remove Showtime, and the young lady mentioned that I was eligible for an equipment upgrade because of...

    The DIRECTV gods must not want me to cancel Showtime...

    All of my promotions have run out, except for a Refer-A-Friend that still has a few months on it - so I'm wanting to do something to get my bill down. I decided I would cancel Showtime because the only thing we ever watched on it was Nurse Jackie, and that show is over now (series finale was a...

    DIRECTV Keeps Calling

    I've been seeing calls on caller ID at the house from 855-888-7992 since June 8. Sometimes they call multiple times per day. They always call during the day when everyone's at work/school and nobody's home to answer. Never in the evening or anything. They never leave a message on voicemail...

    Disconnected From Home Network

    I have four receivers in my house. One HR34-700 Genie, two H25-100 units, and one H25-500 unit. The HR34-700 and two H25-100 units are probably around three years old, and I received them when I originally had DIRECTV installed at my old house. I received the H25-500 about a year and a half...

    Subscription Sports Channels

    Why oh why oh why does DIRECTV keep automatically renewing those subscription sports channels on my account? Channels that I never wanted or asked for to begin with. Seems like when it gets near any new sports season they automatically "renew" my subscription to these channels, and if I don't...

    DIRECTV Price

    Soooooo...I had DIRECTV installed less than a year ago on July 3, 2012. I knew my bill would go up as time went on due to various promotions dropping off and whatnot, but this latest bill I just got is RIDICULOUS. I have the Ultimate package along with Starz & Showtime. My bill started off...

    New Problems with DIRECTV

    OK...so I posted not too long ago about service going out every time it rains. Haven't had any problems with that lately that I'm aware of and things have been working really well, but now we have something new going on. Not sure exactly when it started happening. We were out of town, came...

    DIRECTV "99% Signal Reliability"

    Sooooooo... I just had DIRECTV installed on June 2. Got the HR34 Home Media Center, two H25's, the Cinema connection kit, and a slimline dish. I previously had AT&T U-verse. Never had any problems at all with U-verse. Only reason I switched was because I'm getting basically the same...
