    It would matter to you if you were the one being called a liar.

    Maybe, but you miss the point.

    That's a joke.

    Officer Cass: Our scout ships have reached Dantooine. They found the remains of a Rebel base, but they estimate that it has been deserted for some time. They are now conducting an extensive search of the surrounding systems.

    Governor Tarkin: [referring to Leia] She lied. She lied to us.

    Darth Vader: I told you she would never consciously betray the Rebellion.

    Governor Tarkin: Terminate her. Immediately.

    O.I.C. The Corporate Entity of DirecTV has been personally insulted because a customer called them a liar (right or wrong) and are cowered in a corner somewhere in tears and DBSTalk has to protect their virtue. What's the difference ... lie, misinformation, whatever. Someone simply f'd up and the customer is upset. So in the heat of the moment he called them a liar instead of an F-Up. Geez, you'd think some people were defending their mothers rather than a multi-billion dollar soul-less corporation. :lol:

    Or when I put you on ignore since you add nothing to the conversation except DirecTV==bad. Those you criticize offer help, criticize and laud. But since you know better, I am calling DirecTV right now to cancel. Obviously, I must be crazy to be anywhere near satisfied.

    Personally, I am right smack dab in the middle of what I will call an install/upgrade nightmare. Today I am most certain my blood pressure rose by several points by the time I watched this guy drive up the road after a failure to install a single thing.

    That said, I cannot imagine leaving DirecTV for what you now have for service, if that's what a computer running windows 7 connected to TV's is.
    While I am missing some programs as we speak, I will sit down later, in front of any number of TV sets here and use my MRV set-up with my DVR's to catch up when I am ready to do so and I don't need no stinkin mouse!

    I will give DirecTV some time to make my current situation right and they will more then likely try to do so. But if they don't or won't then I will probably suffer with this terribley inconvienient HD-DVR/MRV set-up just as it is, and they will not get a chance to make even more money off of me.

    Neither Windows 7 nor the cable company can offer me anything anywhere near my current level of sopistication.
    I wish it were possable for me to get more upset with them but in the long run, I'd be the loser I fear...just as you are.
    TV Computer, just great :confused:

    Ah yes, the protection plan. I forgot about that. Pay MORE every month for "insurance" against the failure of equipment...that you do not own. Brilliant.

    Usually first to point out the mistakes that the customer made.......not sure about help.

    I have a number of computers/media boxes/game consoles connected to different TV's throughout the house along with one media server. With Playon and some other tricks, can stream just about any program not available over OTA to any TV any time I want to watch it. Plus I can record OTA and to watch on any TV at any time as well, for free, other than the cost of the equipment (which I own) and Play On. Easy. No sleazy installers, no crappy CS, no failing DVR's, no increased fees .

    with apologies to Jim Mora:

    That's it - Play On? You better have some significant "other tricks" to get around the dozens of restricted content sites available with DirecTV that I haven't seen available anywhere on the Web. You keep talking about OTA, and yes, most people forget that at a minimum, a third of their viewing is on the major networks, but how do you plan to watch some of the most significant and memorable programs that I have seen, which are not widely available on the Internet?

    And let's not forget about HDTV. While I'm sure you can get some of your content in HD, most will come in in really crappy quality. Try blowing that up to 50". It will look like sh...well, you know what I mean.

    paulsown, I'm sure living off the grid when it comes to television is very satisfying. So was not owning a TV for years and just reading a lot, which was my answer. Frankly, I like my solution better than yours.

    Actually, we had a meeting a while back and we offer this particular service in your honor.

    We get it. You have an agenda. You hate Directv, a service provider you don't even subscribe to. Yet you take the time to come here and rant about said service provider. :rolleyes: That's really...hmm...I'm not sure which word to use...sad maybe? Yes, sad will do just fine.

    Actually I do own all my equipment, Contrary to what you believe you do own parts of the equipment, not the recievers but you do own the spliters, lnb, dish and the cabling.

    Actually, the Protection Plan covers the dish, splitters, multiswitches, and cables. If your receiver/DVR dies, D* will replace at only the cost of shipping. I think free shipping is an added bonus of the Protection Plan, though.

    I have personally received enough service when wiring or a DVR has failed to justify this expense. While YMMV, mine has been a worthwhile expenditure.
