Nope you missed it. I already have all the HD I need now. Another satellite for more Local HD does me no good. It may pull in new customers in those new areas it serves, but for current customers, I believe it is meaningless. I hate the inability of Directv to fix what seems to be a simple function. I have been a happy subscriber to Directv since 1996 when I was paying two bills. One for standard channels and one for the movie channels. I have been happy with the service and absolutely loved the UltimateTV. Only reason I upgraded was to get HD. So we get this shiny new HD toy and it can't do things my 1992 tv can like consistently change the channel with the remote. Am I getting frustrated enough to vote with my dollar? Possibly, except my wife is the sports fanatic in the house and I can't get those packages anywhere else. Does that mean I just have to sit back and make excuses for Directv and their poor management of this service? I don't think so. I do believe Directv reps read this forum and so I will make my dissatisfaction known. Especially since calling a customer service rep for the "support" we will supposedly be paying the MRV fee for always boils down to "reset the receiver", "Let's do a complete reset of your receiver", "I'm sorry, we have never heard of that problem before", "Let's exchange that receiver for $20". Which is what I fully expect from MRV support as well.
