I have been a long time member of this forum but as with everything in life things changed and I stopped coming here several years ago. At the time Directv was owned by Directv and this forum was full of activity. I was even a member of the testing program at one point and we had loads of new threads and discussions on software updates, new receivers etc. Fast forward to today and the forum not only looks totally different, it also is pretty dead. I noticed that forums.att.com has threads going back way past the point when AT&T acquired directv and some threads in there look like ones that use to be on this forum. In a nutshell what happened? Did they sell the original forums content to AT&T? Did the regulars just leave or was their some sort of dispute? It's just such a night and day difference between DBS talk today and how it was 5 years ago and I am curious as to why.
