    apparently there was some glitch last night, mabye software related.

    The sports bar down the street lost everything, the store owner lost his service, and a couple people called in this morning with no service.

    I guess a simple reset fixed everything which is fine but i guess it took over an hour at the sports bar with all the tvs.

    This morning i got a call about weird colors, they thought maybe their tv was going bad or something.

    Anyhow when i got there they showed me all the colored circles for mini guide, delete, and other options were all ike half grey or white on top, it was kinda weird. Then they showed me the dvr and the circles werent even there, the mini guide and tv options wording were there but not the colored circles. Pretty wierd. About five minutes later they showed up. I guess it kept doing that all night and the next morning even after resets.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    No, as usual, you seem to be alone on this. There was a quick outage Tuesday afternoon.

    that could be

    but what about the colored circles?

    and no none of these were my installs besides the missing color cirlcles, i suppose i installed that one wrong and messed up the colored buttons once again....

    It would help if you'd provide a better location than "USA" for where the problem occurred. :confused:

    Well i dont know but every box that ive seen since has the colored buttons half greyed or whited out on top, it reminds me of windows when in safe mode you only got 256 colors and it made blocks or triangles instead of smooth shading.

    Yes,

    I saw some of the results........OC only got 3/4 of an inch in a few hours. West MD got smacked. I was out in Fredrick County this morning and all the streams were still high. The Patuxtant River at MD 50 was almost up to the highway bridge...no Rt 50 & no OC.

    It was a big one!

    Unless there's confirmation that this issue is more widespread it appears that whatever happened is a localized issue. I have not seen this nor have any friends/relatives living in Chicago, Indiana, and Ohio.

    You bought a generator to keep your DIRECTV service going in the event of a power outage ?

    Why the :mad: ?
