  • Bob Lombardo

    North Las Vegas Nevada, this is the second day of loss of signal and the unit rebooting over and over. It’s not just me, its all over my neighborhood

  • Bob Lombardo

    This service really suck, almost 48 hours of off and on 10 or more times a day and all the rebooting, WiFi TV is looking better and better.

  • Bob Lombardo

    I worked for years in the Telecom and IT industry, we always had back-up or stand-bye equipment in case of system failure, where the hell is theirs, Is the fact that we “only” pay over $130 a month for service too little for them to be able to provide uninterruptible service?

    Every channel works EXCEPT ESPN, and it’s College Gameday!!! No bad weather but still says 771 on channel and have walked through troubleshooting with tech. No problems with connection. Tech says it’s the weather, but there is no rain, wind NOTHING!
    What is the problem DIRECTV??????

  • Northernlights13

    All of my local channels have black screen code 771. This has been going on for the whole month of August and now into Sept. Last few nights “No Title available” on most channels that do work.
    I talked to a person from my area Grant Pass, Oregon yesterday and they are having the same experience.
    Is DIRECTV just falling apart?
    Tech is coming out today. They wanted to charge me for this house call and I told them I’d go to Dish before I would pay for their problem.
    I’ve unplugged everything there is to unplug. Reset my card…all of these routines dozens of time.
    Pictures might pixilate for awhile and then just go out.
    On Saturday night suddenly everything worked perfectly. Problem solved itself?
    Right back to no signal and not “No Title Available”.
    We’re paying for this non-service!

  • Larry

    I’ve been having the same issue since we started months ago. Just a couple weeks ago they finally told me that it is software problems and they are working on s fix. No date when that will be. They gave me $75 off my bill as I insisted on some compensation or I will stop my service.

  • Bob Lombardo

    I’m tired of this problem, I went out and bought a Roku and Prime, I don’t need 500 channels of someone else’s religious ideals and a lot of other crap I don’t watch, I’ll be saving over $130 a month. Sick of Cable and Satellites. As long as I have my WiFi I’m good. Bye-Bye heartless Corporation.

  • IQ140

    Nine channels between 202 and 311 started breaking up and 771 error two days ago. Can be fine during the day but get worse in evening. Today, more channels started breaking up and the original nine were just blank screens with 771 code.
    Called Directv twice, checked connections, no bad weather, no dish obstructions, and ran through tests — ended up scheduling service call.

    I think the problem is the satellite, not my end. Why would a channel be fine at 10 am and terrible at 6 pm if nothing here was changed? And do the same thing the next day? And then deteriorate further? Either the satellite is the issue or my DVR receiver is failing.

  • Craig

    No local channels in Twin Cities

  • Linanne

    No local channels in the Twin Cities for me either. Can get 2 & 45 but everything else is down.

  • Eileen

    Down in Harnett County NC but only on CBS

  • Brad Woolard

  • Miasmom

    Off and on outages and can’t record for two weeks. in Northeastern Nevada. Stupid CS had me doing all kinds of stupid things and then said it was fixed forever! One hour later, freezes, no signal, no recording again. THANKS, I missed a 2 hour season finale, and two other shows! I only watch one or two days a frickin week! They said it was a nationwide issue with satellite software and engineers were working on it. Sure………….

  • Dave
