One of the items I got Directv to throw in the deal, when I played hardball with them, was this whole house DVR system. Now it only works with HD receivers, and I only have the one, besides the HD-DVR in the living room, in our bedroom.
They're coming out for the 4th time today to try and get the friggin thing to work. LOL
The HD receiver in our bedroom can't find the network where the HD-DVR is located. I known where the problem is, told them so, but they seem to know more then me and won't listen. The internal wiring in my house is in two separate "groupings". One end of the house is one group (which has the HD-DVR), and the other end of the house is another group (where our bedroom is located). Both run to a central control panel in our laundry room. Now why the people who built my house did it this way I have no idea, but that is the way it's set up. And when Directv came several years ago to do their initial install I told them that and they had no problem adapting to it.
I'm taking off work a half a day to be here when they arrive, and this time they are going to listen and get it right because I'm tired of messing with them.
