A chance to prove your point and you blow it off with nonsense. I'm able to show here that DirecTV is not supporting their DVR's adequately, you haven't been able to provide any facts or data to the contrary.

By the way, why do you defend DirecTV so much? I'm curious as to the why.

I'm not blowing you off. Time is money. The only free work I do is for family, friends or charity and I don't believe you fit in any of those categories. If you want me to do the work, I expect to be compensated.

Frankly, I don't think you've proven anything in this thread except that you got a canned answer on your initial request to technical support via email. This shouldn't be surprising to anybody, especially you since as you have indicated you have this behavior well documented. Now I'm sure their support of the unit is not up to your satisfaction, but I wouldn't say you've "proven" that. I will agree though that in all likelihood it's falling short of any acceptable mark.

As for my defense of DirecTV, that's simple. I think there are many people here and elsewhere who blame DirecTV for a lot of things for one reason or another without considering for a moment that they are not the one's at fault. Take the whole HMO and or 4.0 debate. Lots of people blame DirecTV for our not having either when in reality they could be working hard to bring both to us but are delayed by greater software testing and infrastructure deployment. I don't think it's wrong to defend them when I don't necessarily believe they are the bad guys. It doesn't mean I work for them, it just means I'm being fair and giving them the benefit of the doubt. I'm certainly not going to base my opinion on poorly drawn assumptions.
