    I find that it does work and I haven't had any issue with it. It is completely unsupported by DIRECTV however and if an issue does crop up they probably won't troubleshoot it.

    Like I said though, I've been doing this without an issue for 7-8 months now. However, YMMV! :)

    what did you do to get the offer of a free upgrade to the new Genie system? I just called them and was told I don't qualify for anything and I have been with them for 13 or 14 years have 4 dvr's , an upscale programing package.

    The entire state of AL has been O&O since about 2005. The O&O still uses some contractors though.

    Thanks. I wouldn't dream of calling DIRECTV for something like that. I was more concerned that I might possibly damage some equipment.

    Excellent! And I hope my mileage is similar to yours.

    Not true at all. DirecTV owns and operates some of the HSP's as DirecTV Home Services. But yes, a majority of them are contractors like Mastec.

    I didn't do anything...They just offered it to me. It was the retentions department I think that offered it though.
