    Ok here is a new question:
    Since it sounds like many of us stay w/ DTV because we like the TIVO interface and being able to record 2 stations at once (and because we don't like change)
    What is our option to get those things without DTV?
    Has anyone found something that works as well for a reasonable price?

    We don't have premium channels and really only have a few shows we like but we do watch MSNBC and our local channels.

    I hate change... :(

    I have TiVo on cable and I can record 4 things at one time. It really isn't that hard to change. I did in 2007.

    i think your 12:17 must be a mistake. Or it could be called "on the 8's" such as on the weather channel. Oh if you could actually see the weather channel.....

    I recorded the weather channel all day today almost 23 hours.

    The results show that my system has restarted 11 times today.

    It's time guys, to backout whatever fix that you installed. Enough is enough.

    The way things are going tonight, lets just call it an even 12. :thumbsdown:

    I think I'll record the test channel tomorrow !!

    Well, I can't get the main LR DVR to get Live TV at all, keeps telling me "Sorry the Recorder must re-aquire information from the satellite, then goes back to Satellite Info Error then to DirecTV Central. Can't get live TV at all!

    Edit: Well, got Live TV back. Had to do a System Test in order to get to Live.

    Yes. That's probably when the guide data updates to stop showing the current half-hour data and moves to show the upcoming half-hour.

    Trying a different approach based on that theory: deleted nearly every channel except the ones I actually watch and now wait and see if this helps any -OH LOOK, it rebooted again at 11:14PM.

    That's it. Plug pulled.

    My friend has DISH. What a joke. Hw said he couldn't watch one show while recording another. i was in disbelief. I checked it out on the internet and apparently it's true. I'd definitely wouldn't bother with DISH.

    If you have a good internet connection, there are some great options on line for watching lots of TV and Movies. Project Free-TV has been great.

    Just a thought.

    Arcady, what cable service do you have now? Comcast?

    This is beyond ridiculous. Trying to watch a live show at 10pm, I missed the beginning, middle and end due to reboots.

    I have Insight, the local cable company here in Louisville, which was recently bought by Time Warner Cable.

    This right here is the reality of the situation. Look, I'm PO'd about this too, but the fraction of the DTV customers still using DirecTivo's is probably very small. We're a devoted community, but were tiny. Whatever DTV did to cause this, we weren't much more than an afterthought during their roll out meetings. They are too interested in making sure what ever "it" was works with their newer equipment.

    Because new customers are much more important than current customers. Always a great PR move.
    The only way I'd stick with this is if they gave me genie without a contract. How likely is that to happen?

    I'll throw my two cents in with those suggesting DTV changed something that broke the older Tivos and could likely roll back whatever it was.

    So... either we've been targeted for a forced upgrade, we're too insubstantial to warrant a resolution, or DTV has simply become too dysfunctional to make it happen? Not sure what else could explain. Trying to keep an open mind, but this is getting way past rediculous.

    On the main box, 9 reboots in just in the past 24 hours.

    Thanks, Arcady. Comcast is the only option out here. And, you are right - my series 2 Directv Tivo does not have the original hard drive - I have had it for some time, and the original hard drive died years ago. It functioned perfectly though, before whatever Directv did on November 8th that messed up their series 1 and series 2 Tivos.

    I love DIRECTV (generally except for the rain blackouts) and now this problem I also have it in my motorhome. FIOS is a good option but their DVR is not as good as DTV's. COMCAST sucked at least when I had it, DISH has fewer stations and fewer HD offerings. Given the paucity of problems I have had with DTV I am staying. But I am pissed. As it works out I had already decided to upgrade to HD and get a new HD TV with a Genie. That should happen in next 3 weeks til then I hope this gets resolved soon
