    I have forgot my passcode that locks the system. It is locked and I cant get it unlocked. I have a D11 made by DirecTV. Any suggestions on how to get around this so I can unlock my system?

    Nope. That's the only way. And be prepared to prove that you're the primary account owner.

    You'll need information about your account .... account number, primary account holder's Social Security number, account password (if you have one), etc.
