Advertisements Well I got replacement unit today. Would of had it Friday but DirecTV sent it to the wrong state (city same name) so of course the box had some damage. This unit also made in Mexico July 6 this time instead of July 21 for my first unit. The return label was also missing one more thing to complain about Same exact problem so I called DirecTV after being on hold for some time I spoke to "Jason" he claimed this was the first he had heard of the HDMI problem sigh... so he puts me on hold to find more information. When he gets back he says they have no record of me calling about the defective unit in the first place. I eventualy commented on speculation about the HDMI card coming loose and he said had heard of that one so off to hold land I go... Ok he said they dont refer to it has "HDMI failure" they talk about it as "HDMI card failure". I guess this is important for anyone else that will be calling DirecTV with this problem in the future... They are sending me another unit this is getting old fast All this makes me want to switch to Voom but they dont have equivalent of Tivo or as many channels for that matter.
