    My ABC local wMUR channel has been out for a week and it’s not the first time this year. No credit given this is important station local weather and planning for your day. I’m considering this as a breach of contract. I’m a long time customer who’s ready to move on!!

  • Tamara

    My ABC and CW which locally are called KMBC (ch 9) and KCWE (Ch 29) have been out for over a week in Independence, MO! How do we fix this? I watch this local stations all the time and we had to switch to Direct TV/ATT because U-Verse was not going to offered any longer in our area. Not happy losing my local shows.

    My direct tv plays then when it buffers the channel never comes back on, then I get a loading error. If you change the channel it works again.

  • Rachelle

    We live in Garden Plain KS and have had no signal for about 10 hours. Major ice storm heading our way. Would like to be able to watch the weather!

  • Eileen

    Oklahoma- Direct TV Code is 2-1 I have no idea what this means but it has been down all day.

  • bookumdano

    For the last 3-4 days Error Code 771 has popped up on some channels. The message has bounced between Sat In 1 and Sat In 2. The channels out however have been the same. I am under a 2 year contract with AT&T, and they tell me that they need to send out a Tech, at my expense. I am really pissed, since I am paying a monthly fee to use THEIR equipment, and they want an additional $7.99 a month for service coverage,or a $50 fee to send the Tech. The problem appears to be an equipment issue. As soon as the contract is up, about 16 months, I will be switching services to someone else.

    It was difficult to get a picture, but then there was no sound. I did reboot, but that does not seem to have made a difference. Now we have neither sound nor picture in Red Oak, TX.

  • Aggravated customer

    “No servers were detected” that’s all I’m getting after I try searching for signal. One TV will start working out of no where and then quit again. Can’t find any outages around be right now. So not sure if it’s just me or if anyone else is being effected. Madison ohio 44057

    One minute an internet connection: download a movie bam! No internet connection. Hating DIRECTV !

  • Megan Wright

    Ill try that , I hadnt heard that was fixing the issue ty for the post! I will also post when I try this and let people know if it helps

  • Megan Wright

    Okay, I pushed the red reset button in the front panel on the receiver, and waited foreverrrrrrr for it to go through its tests , I then went and searched the channels that weren’t working [just in time to see who won Alone -.-] and it all seems to be working finally! So a BIG Thank you to Kara Greenwell. I am not sure why Directv couldn’t tell me that, but thanks to the internet and the awesome people that live in the usa it is working. Btw, I am in NE Mts. of Washington State , so this might not help everybody . But it is worth the 3 or 4 minutes to give it a try.

  • Teresa

    The page that lists the programming is is full of no information…announcement to be made…lots of mixed up no title stuff. All tvs affected. Emmett, Idaho. Started last night about midnight. Channels still show the programs but are not identified. What do I do?

  • Nytshaed

    Directv down in Nor Cal, 510 area code to be precise. I’m at work and cannot run diagnostics, or say what codes it’s showing, if any. Family just texted me that “Cable had been down all day.”

  • Jennifer Leeds

    Northern Illinois DirecTV out…

  • Propexper

    I was scheduled to have DirecTV install on Feb. 21 in VA, but no one showed up for my 8am-noon window. I called customer service who said they’d call the installer. Still nothing. By 5pm, I called again, this time getting a CSR who told me there was some sort of nationwide outage. She said the next available install appointment date would be March 13. I cancelled. Now forced to re-sign with Cox.
