Hey guys-

I need some help. Directv customer service was no help, but hopefully somebody may know more or have a better answer. I am in the middle of having my roof re-shingled and the dish had to come down. Directv can't come out for 4 days to re-mount. Ok. I'll just watch stuff off of the DVR. Well that is a no go because the receiver keeps resetting itself because it can't find a signal. Does anybody have any idea on how to get it to stop searching for a satellite and just let me watch DVR stuff? Very annoying!

From what others have said recently, you can't do that anymore ... :(

Thanks for the replies, guys. I figured as much. It's sad that this board has more information than what is available to Direct's customer service.
