I've had DirecTV since 1995 when 1 Receiver and a Dual LNB Dish cost $1000 installed! Received a Sony UltimateTV receiver for Christmas in 2001. Satellite TV hasn't been the same since then! UltimateTV is awesome! After problems, DirecTV technicians diagnosed the problem as the receiver. Tuner 2 Fails the System Test. They replaced my MultiSwitch, and some cable ends, but I still have my suspicions about an LNB problem. I may test both lines directly this weekend with a regular tuner, bypassing the multiswitch. So, I called my DirecTV protection plan to have my receiver replaced, and found out that UltimateTV service is discontinued. Here are my options: 1 - They will replace my Sony Ultimate TV Receiver with a Generic brand TiVo immediately. (Not a Sony model - I assume the cheapest thing that have in inventory.) No PiP or watching 1 program, and recording another with the TiVo's since they only have 1 tuner. (As I understand it?) 2 - Keep my UltimateTV with only one working tuner, since it will currently do the same thing as a new TiVo unit. 3 - Buy another UltimateTV receiver and send this one back to Sony for repair. (Can't do without!) 4 - ?? (Your suggestion?) I was disappointed that the DirecTV Protection Plan wouldn't replace my unit with the same brand. I paid $200 extra for a Sony model over the RCA. I have a Circuit City protection plan that I haven't been able to reach them to find out how they will handle this. But, I can't stand the thought of DirecTV without UltimateTV. Any ideas or recommendations on where to buy another UltimateTV receiver?
