    I answered your question. You may not have understood the response however. You were sent a notice. It was sent to you. It was sent to everyone being charged the RSN fee. It was either sent either by email, by mail, or within their bill as insert. If you chose to disregard this communication, it was in your spam folder, or someone in your home discarded it...that's on you. To say that you were not notified is a false claim.

    We're stuck in a rut here. Unless anyone has something new to contribute to the notification discussion, please lets move on. It's unfair for a few to hijack the thread.

    Please take it to PM if you have nothing new.

    Thanks.

    Mike

    One way I find out about knowing if you'll get sports fee or not is to go to the Directv site without logging into my account, and add zip code on the package screen like if you're ordering for the first time, then add a receiver then checkout, It will show the total amount with credits and on the bottom it will shows sports fee amount for certain dma's, but also clear cookies and cache first.

    So they have sufficiently proven that they are with DirecTV, but SR, with mods confirming that he is legit, has not? I don't really follow the Dish side, but I remember the announcement of the project starting, after one of them posted on this side before the rules of the program went into effect, and I didn't see any evidence besides being told by the mods. Of course I trust our mods, but don't really see the difference between trusting that someone is really with DIRT as opposed to DirecTV.

    All the Dirt Member can provide ID for the company, as well as contact info.

    If satelliteracer wants to send me his Directv Email and ID number, I have no problem discussing it with him.

    That has yet to happen.

    I've yet to see Satellite racer offering his help on multiple sites.

    No. There is no reason for the name calling. Some of us have participated on the forum for more than a decade. We know who to trust and who not to trust. One trusts a little, receives a little trust in return and the trust builds.

    If you feel that you have not been able to build up trust in the forum and its members over the many years you have been here that is fine. Others have learned to trust ... and they don't need to be called names.

    If you don't trust members here feel free to continue to use the DirecTV website, the telephone and any other method DirecTV offers to get help. But please don't insult those who trust and are trusted on our forums.

    This gentle request applies to all ... not just unixguru. Lets keep it civil. And as Mike as requested, lets get away from the rut.

    Thanks!

    I don't trust people I've never met or even know their real name.
    And tell me why I should, or why anyone should?

    Scott Kocourek and RAD I trust . Thats about it.

    No offense to anyone else but fact is you wouldn't trust me . So there it is.

    Show me some ID.

    That's because you haven't given anyone a reason to, but Satelliteracer has over the years. You're not a newbie here, so I don't know why you doubt him.

    Because I've seen a number of people with the equipment to see what Directv has in testing. Not just here.

    What if both Scott & RAD confirm that Satelliteracer is legit and a D* employee? Will you allow him to research the method & date the notification was sent?

    I don't give out personal account info to people I never met, or don't have ID to present for the business.

    If you like doing that thats fine.

    I don't!


    And I didn't say anything about Equipment in testing.


    I said just because he has the equipment to scan channels in testing doesn't mean that he can automaticlly be trusted , just because abunch of DBS talk members whom I've never delt with or met say its ok.

    End of story, you guys do what you want, and then you are also the same guys who cry when someone has all your personal data and is running around all over the internet with it.

    No I wouldn't.

    Just like I wouldn't give you it either even if you showed me ID.


    If scott or rad wanted it I would give it.

    You didn't say that, and that's not what he does... Sixto does that.


    By the way, your account number isn't very private information considering it's required for refer-a-friend.
