    It is trying to acquire channel data.
    It will not allow me to cancel, so I am stuck.
    It looks like they pushed some new software to our receivers.
    Tried to call but the phone number goes to a busy signal.

    I am in the same boat and it happened after I hit "RESET" on the box so.... not a happy camper.

    I remember sometime back I posted an online link to Fox but will have to do a search. If somebody has it, post it. I will want to watch later if I cannot get DTV to work.


    I have an OTA antenna for the other stuff just want FOX

    They lost more than Fox and CNN and whatever you do, do not reset your receiver. It seems that the satellite isn't talking to the receivers, so it won't complete the reset procedure. I spent an hour on the phone waiting for “next available “ person earlier. Going to try it again here soon.

    I did that too. I got through passed the busy signal and spent an hour waiting for someone to pick up.

    The comments here show someone who said they got thru to tech services and were told DIRECTTV got hacked.

    Wouldn't surprise me any. Didn't one of NASA's probes hacked several years ago basically killing it. The found a "flipped bit" in the code and had to reboot the probe's computer in safe mode and then reload the software.

    Mine came back to, but did not show HD channels.
    I did a Repeat Satellite Setup and everything is now back to normal.
