Advertisements My parents signed up for Directv because I recommended it and they received a complicated, unusuable Directv DVR instead of A Directivo series 2 like I have and love. I tried to learn to work theirs but it is too complicated for my 37 year old mind so imagine what it's like for their 70+ minds. Does anyone know if I could purchase a Directivo series 2 either through Directv or elsewhere and get it activated at my parents' house and just set aside the complicated DVR that Directv sent them? I asked Directv through email and they misunderstood me that I had the complicated Directv DVR and wanted one like one I used to have or something. Or pretended to misunderstand! Any one know if I can do this?
