We took a lightning strike that knocked out both of our recievers. I replaced the cables and LNB at the dish since both got fried. Still got error 771 on tv from both recievers. We tried a friends reciever on our system and it worked fine. I then called tech support at directtv and told them it was very obvious that both recievers had input problems. These are leased recievers $6.00 a month for each. I was told I may have to buy new recievers. They said that they have to send a tech out at $49.00 a visit to check out my system.
I do satellite internet installs that have to be more precise than tv.
I may just cancel the service altogether with directtv. Wonder if a bunch of people cancelling service at the same time would get their attention?
