I would go back to that but those antennae aren't allowed in my subdivision or there would be one on my rooftop.


Unless there are more details you haven't shared, by law, your subdivision shouldn't have that power over you.

There are so many channels that are pure junk to me.  I wish there was an ala carte system of choosing what you want to pay for instead of paying for a package where there is really only one or two channels you need.

Ok here is what pisses me off. I have a two yr old grandaughter that  loves Dora and the likes. We had over 40 shows recorded on the DVR. They are not accesible anymore. WTF I paid for those shows. To me that is stealing and a from of home invasion. This make me upset beyond words.

If they were already recorded then you can watch them. If you are not able to then something must be wrong with the DVR. It would be like a thunderstorm going overhead and you lose reception. You can still watch what you recorded.

No sir we cannot. Nothing wrong with our dvr. If we select the recorded shows from the channels they dropped we get the direct tv logo. Every other recording is still there; not a F'n thing from Nick. I will be calling tomorow.

Damn, that is a pisser! I've seen that kinda thing happen before with DTV's DVR too. Sometimes if they have a free preview of some pay channel and you DVR it, you can't watch it after the free preview. It's totally stupid too.

I recorded on the DVR about a dozen movies a couple of weeks ago during DirecTVs free weekends of HBO, Showtime, etc. and we've been watching them over the past few weeks, one last night, with no issues.

Then the shows simply didn't record. I saw the same thing just this morning on mine. Spike tv is also part of Viacom and it recorded the Powerblock shows. But when I looked closely I saw that it was actually channel 8241. It looks like all the channels that were under Viacom switched over the the same number preceded by an 8. If all you got was the logo then it simply recorded the empty channel and not the real channel. It suck but until they come to an agreement!!!

I've seen that too. Sometimes they work and sometimes they don't.

I wonder if DTV will reduce our bills for the programing that we no longer receive?

I switched to DTV from Comcast a few years ago when Comcast began reducing the number of channels that we could receive "without" one of their boxes on every set in the house. This in turn drove up the cost to the point that DTV was a better value and I'm used to DTV as that's what we use on the boats at work. In fact DTV is the only game in town when it comes to marine based self tracking marine sets.

I'm going to Dish in the next few weeks.  I talked to my neighbor today and she said they love it and haven't had any issues.  That's good enough for me.  I'll keep em for two years and then see what happens then.  It's a good time to get the newer technology at a lower price.

Well all the shows that I had recorded are back.. I tell you they were not there earlier.  They showed up when I went to the recorded section, but would not play.  I tried them all yesterday and now they play.  Very wierd

Just a warning.  If you have any issues with a DVR, they UPS a new one to you... 3 to 5 business days.  They do not send anyone to replace/repair.  So you are out of business for 3 to 5 business days at a minimum.  If you do have a problem, tell them you want it FedEx overnight!  This will get you the equipment next day, even on a Saturday.  Don't let them send UPS... they do not deliver on Saturdays.
