Direct TV Tivo Missleading Claims

Here is a copy of a letter that I sent to direct Tv regarding this subject.

This is notice that we plan to file suit against Direct TV for losses incurred while installing your products. Specifically those products that carry the Tivo brand logo.

Tivo advertising ensures the capability of fully networking their products tivo.com/1.2.12.asp . Direct TV as a licensed reseller of Tivo technology has failed to post any type or kind of notice on their official web site or any of their know documentation, that contradicts or disclaims in any way Tivos claim that their products/technologies are fully network capable. This is wholly misleading to the average reseller, consumer and custom installer. Wherefore, we plan to file suit against Direct TV on behalf of ourselves and any other individual or company that wishes to join into the suit against direct TV, to recover financial losses incurred while attempting to install Direct TVís products, our loss and the loss of many others, is a direct result of Direct TVís failure to clearly post in any form proper notice of the fact that Direct TV does not support a networking solution for its Tivo products.

That's certainly one way to go about it.

What damages or "losses," exactly, have you suffered?
Did you not have the ability to return the box when you discovered it doesn't do HMO?

A bit of a stretch I would say, but let's see where this leads you. My guess is unfortunately nowhere.

Well, there goes two hours of my life... Just got done speaking with both DirecTV and Tivo folks about getting my USBs running before I visited this site.

No luck, BUT, gal with at Direct's "Advanced Support" (skip the menus by dialing 1-800-793-4102) said that they are in the process of transmitting the software to activate the USBs... she just wasn't sure when it would happen.

I'm not sure if that means anything at all, but I'll keep my USB plugged in just in case!
