The reason for this was because you can't have 2 orders open at the same time. There's no reason to send two techs out to one house when they should be able to resolve everything. Since one order got canceled and the SC was automatically canceled the representative could have asked if he was aware the SC was canceled. The problem is it could look like a SC was ordered and then he decided to do an upgrade instead. So in this scenario the representative missed something that could have avoided the issue of the installation.

The AM 21 I still stand on the grounds that you should never purchase something without doing sufficient research. I'm stopped from buying my audio stuff twice now because I've found out something else that means I want a different receiver. Once I am 100% sure of what I'm buying I'll pull the trigger.

Anyone who stands up for Directv has a problem. That company is nothing but a bunch of thieves.Maybe if all the people would stand up to them they would change their ways.

If you have something to say, please say it in a constructive way. Throwing insults out doesn't do anything. If you had a bad experience with DirecTV, I'm sorry for that. Maybe you can share it with us so that others will not have to go through the same problem, we can help you rectify it, or others can see a solution for their problem using what you did to resolve yours.

I've heard in the past that when you send receivers back to make sure you save the FedEx/UPS tracking numbers as well just in case.
