    Yesterday when I got home and turned on my Hughes HD receiver, I got a network reconfiguration error. After a reset, the system can't find the channels. OTA works fine. No guide and the receiver can't set the clock. Talk to customer service who admits that something DTV did caused a problem with Sony & Hughes receivers and that they expect to have it fixed by 6:00 am today. Get home this evening and still the same problem. Call customer service and they now seem to have no clue. If I check the transponders they all seem to show good signal strength. The last suggestion was to go on the roof to check the connection and the service rep didn't seem to understand that this can't be the problem since OTA is diplexed and working and all of the transponders show strong. Their next solution is a service call that I don't expect to solve anything except to want me to switch to the new system. This is virtually impossible for me since I am in a 4 story townhouse and there is no reasonable way to run all of the cables required by the new system. Anyone know how to fix the problem for now while I try to decide what to do in the long run?

    Ok, I see where I am not alone. I will see if it is working by tomorrow.

    i have the same problem. i have a legacy Hughes HD HTL. program guide doesnt download, but OTA works fine.
    I called directv yesterday and they mentioned that it is a known error on their part. the rep also said that at 3am eastern time THIS MORNING the problem would be fixed. Obviously this isnt the case. Im now into my 4th day without Directv. Can i get some kind of credit or something?

    Nice to see that the CSR's are finally acknowledging this problem. Call DirecTV and politely request compensation.

    There is supposed to be a fix by 6PM today, Friday. Try rebooting after then. Good luck to both of us since I have an LG that is bricked, also!
