Viking Spongebob

Adventures in Electronic Land

DirectTV showed up yesterday to put up a second satellite disk so that I could get local channels. There were a few problems, but nothing that wasn't worked out. At the end, the repairman handed me his phone; they wanted to check whether he did a good job. The guy';s accent was thick enough that you could cut it with a knife! His name was Chip or Billy Bob or something like that :)After taking VIII to the doctor (he had an allergic reaction to a flea collar, apparently), I connected my new Tivo, set up guessed it, couldn't get my channels at all. The connection from the DirectTV box was working. The Tivo was working. But it was searching for satellite.

I called DirectTV tech support.
