Might not be the right forum: but I need help with my Directv Tivo
This is NUTS... ok, so I own my own equipment, I opted to buy some used receivers and an RCA DVR with Tivo instead of leasing, I took the time to wire my own house so it was all neat and the way I want it and like it, running the cables through the walls and all, I even ran a specific phone line behind the TV for my Tivo, and ohhh so professional. So I think I am set, only thing I would change is probably a nice flat lcd screen in the bathroom!!
Now all the work is done and I OWN my equipment, I am having a hell of a time subscribing, call directv, they want to send new leased receivers, as the previous receivers I bought were disconnected (probably why people sold them as not in use).... ohhh, and we will send out an installer to hook them up and run additional phone lines for additional cost..... my response is not a problem, forget the phone lines, but if he wants to come and inspect my connections no problem... but dont bring any leased receivers!!!
Directv customer rep gives various excuses of why they wont connect my old receivers and an installer will not come out to hook up old ones. So I go to the net and start calling authorized dealers, local, state, out of state... I dont care, here is my CC, this is the package I want... NO LUCK...
So much for the vent.... now I just want to know, is it possible to Subscribe to Tivo or not... and if so, why the reluctance or resistance to subscribe old receivers?? is there any authrorized dealers that will actually set up an account ??
