I'm traveling, using a Winegard 1518, HR-24 and AM21 (or whatever the OTA thing for Directv is)... When I'm able to use the dish, I can record whatever OTA channels there are and/or regular non-local Directv stuff. Works fine. BUT, I have several programs recorded, some from Directv and some from the OTA channels where I was at the time. I'm CURRENTLY in a location where I CANNOT use the dish 'cause there are TREES... Which means I can't connect anything to Directv. BUT, I STILL WANT TO WATCH THINGS I'VE PREVIOUSLY RECORDED. Which I BELIEVE, I should be able to do since I LEGITIMATELY recorded them at the time. Every program I have recorded from an OTA channel is UNWATCHABLE. I can SEE the list of recorded programs. I can SELECT a program from the list. But as soon as it starts playing I get a popup that says "Service not active. Call Customer Service (750)... The service IS active. It was active last week. It was active YESTERDAY before I moved to a different campground. It's active at home where my wife is... I'm not sure what calling customer service is going to do since I DON'T HAVE ANY WAY FOR THE DISH TO TALK TO THE SATELLITE... BUT, even though I think it's a waste of time I'VE NOW CALLED DIRECTV TWICE. And waded through the idiotic robo-answerer. And been DISCONNECTED twice before I got to a human. Currently sitting on hold going into the second 10-minute block waiting for someone to answer the phone. And YES, I've done the "red button reset" at least THREE TIMES. I've also done the "yank the plug out of the wall" reset... NEITHER HAS HELPED. THUS, trying here - WTF is 750, why am I GETTING it, and WHY CAN'T I WATCH PREVIOUSLY RECORDED PROGRAMS WHEN I HAVE NO DISH CONNECTION?
