Question about Directv (DWO2-10024)

2 Answers

Directv will not show ESPN but all other channels are displayed


I have paid for all of the Sports Channels. But ESPN, 206, says searching for a satellite signal. It has been doing this for 2 weeks. Customer Service at Directv keeps telling me it is fixed, when it is not.

I know that one of Transformers (8) has a signal strength of 69, all of the rest are in the 80's or high 90's.

Has anybody ever experienced this?

Any help is appreciated!

    If it is a signal issue, does this mean I have to contact Directv to fix it or can I fix it?

    I get a blank screen when I go to ESPN (channel 206) and if I wait long enough, a picture will appear, then freeze and maybe be replaced by the blank screen or another "freeze" frame of a later image. I've contacted Directv and they've escalted the problem to ESPN(?).

Hello I can hardly hear on all of my channels. I have directv and I can't get a reasonable volume. Is there something I can do to fix this problem?

Directv low volume problem.
One sure way to eliminate Directv's low volume and any other volume problems in general is by installing a stereo compressor between your Directv receivers audio outputs and your TV's audio inputs. (Simply plug the compressor's outputs into TV and your receiver outputs into the compressor's inputs). By correctly setting the controls on the compressor, you won't loose the dynamic program content. Not only will it raise the volume level to where you want it be, it will also prevent it from exceeding any set level you chose, actually limiting how loud any sound can be. These settings are fully adjustable. In other words when you switch from Directv back to a dvd or any source, no more sound blasting, you can set levels to be the same now since you have raised then adjusted Directv's level to normal. Plus a compressor will raise those low hard to hear audio sections often found in movies. This is the reason we used them all the time in the recording industry. Another benefit is it levels all channels on Directv. The result, channels are now the same volume. This is what I'm doing to end the problem. Hope this helps someone. J Pynckel

Because the broadcaster is giving you the bars at top and bottom there is nothing you can do except use the different aspect or screen formats that are on your TV. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thanks....

Low volume on Direct TV channels

This is a known and ongoing problem with Directv since June. They claim they are trying to "level" all the channels so they are the same volume level. The result so far is that ALL channels are suffering from low volume. Given this has been going on for two months now, Directv may never solve this - General ineptitude - denials - but if you call and tell them you are having low volume, they will give you a three month $5 credit. CALL and COMPLAIN... the only hope we have to get this fixed is to cost them money and time on their customer support lines.!!!!

I have an original RCA directv box and it will still play the music chanels in the 800's but wont show any shows except the ppv previews. Can this card still be fixed or work. THANKS EVERYONE

those are free channels regardless of any plans you may have, you will have to subscribe to direct tv service to get more channels, it will be more economical to sign up for a new plan so u can get new updated equipment.

No local channels

your locals may be broadcasted on a a different satellite (directv uses 7 different ones). when u travel, your dish on your rv might be capable of receiving the satellite that broadcasts normal programming. the dish on your home may look a little different and picks up more than one of the satellite signals. also these satellites are in different locations
