As for the one post asking "when did losing tv reception become an emergency"?.....it's not an emergency but it is a major inconvenience to go a whole weekend with 4 kids complaining about no TV and no internet, not to mention that I broke my foot Wednesday and can't really be out hiking or something this weekend. I realize there are other things to do, but like it or not we are a connected society. For me, it would be no different if it was my car....I'd be upset if my mechanic said it would be 3-4 days before he could even look at it. Honestly, if I could find a tech locally who'd be willing to work off the schedule, I'd pay $200 if I could get this fixed today or tomorrow.
I am confused. In your first post you say that
"As I stated, my internet is also affected by this and my internet provider will be at my house LATER today, no problem. But it will take Directv almost 4 days to come out? Unbelievable."
But now you state you will be without Internet the whole weekend. SO I guess your Internet provider is no better than Directv!!! My opinion is GET OVER IT. Directv did not CAUSE the storm. Crap happens. Waiting until Monday is not bad at all. That time frame is reasonable.
