    We're moving to at the end of this month, so I called to schedule our move and was able to get a new HD receiver as part of the Movers special and a new HD DVR for having never upgraded our equipment. Then I added whole home DVR for a grand total of ~$110 out of pocket!

    I was able to get my preferred installation window. I was also offered the NFLST/Premiere package, which I declined (I want to keep my grandfathered package). The CSR did inform me of the 24 month commitment for this equipment upgrade, so no surprises or missed communication there. I can't think of anything they neglected to offer or inform me of.

    With the recent rash of complaints, I thought it was worth noting my very good experience.


    Now, hopefully they can find LOS from the city's approved location!

    FYI make sure you update your service address after you move. For some stupid reason Directv only updates the billing address after a move. Then 1 yr later when your HD DVR dies, they ship the replacement to your old address...during Christmas...where the resident there decides to accept delivery and then go on a 1 week vacation, stranding you with no DVR during your vacation. Or something like that :D.

    Then again they might have fixed it, just look up your account online after your move to make sure.

    They offered you the NFLST/Premiere package for $59 a month? I didn't think anyone was getting that except new customers.

    Here's the offer as stated on the website:


    If it's anything like my last movers experience, then it should be great! However, I am less than confident that I can get LOS from the new location, but that's not the installer's fault. I will follow up with my experience.

    They usually update the billing address at the time you place the movers order. Since a lot of folks haven't actually moved at that time they will wait for you to actually update your service address when you are moved.

    You can log in to your account on their website and view both your billing and installation address and update as necessary.:)

    :) My install went great today! No LOS issues and I got a brand new HR24, H24 and Whole Home DVR!

    Now if I could only figure out how to get my HR20 to run on remote code 00002. I have my HR20 and H24 in the living room. My SA S1 TiVo apparently needs the H24 to run on code 00001 so it can drive the H24. I'd like the ability to watch the H24 on the HDTV sometimes (regardless of my TiVo recordings) if I have the HR20 booked, but this ability doesn't appear to be an option. Any ideas (aside from pitching my SA S1 TiVo with Lifetime with transfer ability)?

    I'm thinking that setting is under program remote/advanced setups.

    Yeah, I changed it on the HR20, but it didn't respond to code 00002. Should I have tried a different code?

    Or they send the installer to the old address and you call the customer who now lives 3 states over.

    The best is when they ask if your still coming today!!

    I, too, got the NFLST deal and whole home MRV install thrown in free. My question is if the internet connection will be part of the install. The tech is coming saturday to see if I can get signal. I'm in kind of a wooded area, but I think it can be done.

    Say a prayer for me. The FIOS DVR I have temporarily sux.

    Yeah, turns out I should have used 00003 instead. All is now well!

    Glad you got it worked out. There is a way to set up 00002, but I think 00003 is the default "alternate" for the HD DVRs. I think that's easier to set up, and simpler all around.
