And just to add a little for those that may not know. Normally it only takes about a minute with the phone system. Just call the 1-800-531-5000 and when it asks you a question like "How may I help you?" all you have to do is speak "seven two two". It will then re-send the authorization to your receivers.litzdog911 said:It just re-sends DirecTV's authorization codes in case your receiver has lost local channels or other channels that you subscribe to. You can do the same thing on DirecTV's phone system.
