    The claim of the attorney collecting legal fees from a class action suit he was organizing. :)

    You know, I don't know why I even try. Your blinders are too thick.

    No blinders. Just basic logic and common sense.

    Also from what I linked to:

    "In cases where malfunctioning equipment had to be replaced, DIRECTV automatically extended the "programming commitment" by a year or two, even going so far as scooping fees from customer's bank and credit card accounts without permission."

    Your towing of the company line is getting sickening.

    The claim of the attorney collecting legal fees from a class action suit he was organizing. Do you have sources that might be a bit more reputable? There are two people on this forum that claimed that, but it turned out that both were upgrades.

    There are posters on this forum that think Directv never makes mistakes. If they ask for examples and you give them 100, they want 101.

    You provided one example and it was very poor.

    Your opinion. If I gave you 100 you would say they were all poor.

    I only asked for one reputable source, not 100.

    In cases where faulty equipment was replaced, are we sure that it also wasn't an upgrade? SD DVR goes out, the customer decides to replace it with HD, etc. It's replacement of defective hardware but also an upgrade that would trigger a commitment.

    If a commitment has ever been improperly extended, I cannot see how it wouldn't get fixed.

    There were a number of lengthy threads over the span of a couple of years about erroneous extensions for equipment replacements (not upgrades).

    There were several people who posted, who said they had knowledge of the issue and that it was a "systems issue" at DirecTV. The "systems issue" went unfixed for a lengthy period of time (ie well over a year). At some point, someone who said they had knowledge, posted the issue was fixed on Directv's end.

    Don't ask me to dig the threads up because I'm not going to do it.

    STOP discussing each other. If you have nothing constructive and civil to say then don't post.
