The Beta MRV is suppose to be over today.
Does it still work for you?
Mine still worked when I left for work this morning 7 est.
Yes, but I have an 'upgrade' installation schedule for tomorrow. Don't know if this changed my 'status' in D* system. The CSR that I talked with to order didn't know the beta was supposed to end so no information there.
I had a message [somewhere] that told me cutoff was 6 PM tonight. This may be 9 for the east coast.
It was still working for me at 9:30 a.m. Central, when I called to get it turned on in "unsupported mode" (my own network).
Eat Crow Time:
I said I wouldn't pay a dime for it. I paid 30 dimes (per month). Sighhhh...it's just too good a feature, and it's going to be a real money maker for D* as larger elements of the consumer base get wind of it (and become comfortable with the concept).
In essence, my resentment was overwhelmed by the usefullness of the feature.
I guess one could call that good marketing.
I talked to a great guy in the "IT" department when I called yesterday, (the first CSR didn't know what I was talking about and transfered me) He said he had done the transfer for no truck roll (self install) many times but had trouble with mine. He "promised" he would get it done within 24 to 48 hours, So I'll see what happens if VOS is right about 9pm EST.
It's not "if I'm right", but merely what I was given and I've also requested this to be extended because of the install wait times. This doesn't mean they listened to me though.
At 2:10 ET I lost MRV in the middle of watching something.. cut me right off.:lol:
Just lost MRV here around 2:15 ET even though @DirecTV on twitter promised today it was still on Let's see if I can get it to stay on this time.
The Beta period was the genius part. I wonder how many of us would have paid for it if it was $3 from day 1? Not nearly as many. Give it to us free for a while, get us hooked, then charge for it. Just like a good drug dealer. :lol:
Heard from others, too .. Looks like Beta is done effective now.
All my receivers are getting the "Directv Multi-Room Beta Has Ended" message when I call up list. Just checked them now at 2:15 Eastern time.
Also cut off a few minutes ago.
I'm definitely going to activate, just haven't decided on "supported" or "unsupported" yet. Am leaning to supported.
Just lost my MRV, and was told I need to pay $99 for hardware and $49 for install. I said I wasn't paying a dime for it as I have been testing it for nearly 1 year.
Yup, wife just called, it was cutoff in the middle of her soap at the same time you mentioned. I called the other day to go add "unsupported" and after going through three CSRs and about an hour found out my legacy package was the problem in adding it. In the middle of a "refer a friend" appeal that is in "customer resolution" and told the CSR until that gets resolved I am not changing packages or adding anything, including a net charge of $4 to add the MVR option with a new package. If the refer a friend doesn't go in my favor (after all the effort of refering my parents and being there for the install and hours with CSR's to get the order right) I will be dumping Directv over their refer a friend scam which reeled me into Directv when I initially signed up.
I just got the MRV Beta Has Ended message... and the MRV menu is telling me I need to call and activate it.... which is SURPRISING since I called and activated it YESTERDAY!!!
I'm going to try and refresh my services on DirecTV.com....
I tested MRV, I tested DECA... Liked them both, but I will NOT pay for MRV. I get charging for the installation, but the monthly fee is pure bill padding.
If I need to have MRV for equipment testing, I will turn it on during the test but off as soon as testing is complete.
The monthly charge for MRV is *&^%$#@!
Even after my "Whole Home" install last week, MRV was not showing up on my statement and "beta" was still showing under "System Setup, Multiroom" on my boxes.
I figured as a result that what happened to you today would happen to me, so last night I manually activated MRV on directv.com, under "my account", "my services", "Whole-home DVR". A few minutes after I did that, "beta" disappeared from my HR set-up menus (and a charge showed up under "recent activity" in the billing section of "my account").
Let us know if that helps. I lost it too and was "authorized" previously.
So was I. I think anyone who successfully opted in to the beta was authorized. See what I did, above.
