Delay changing channel directv. How is this progress?
Did a topic search but came up empty on this one, so for all you satellite Tv mavens:
I just switched to Directv from cable. We have a SD Sony TV that has a great picture and a SD receiver DVR from Directv. This is connected to their wireless something or other which uses our router. We have cable internet and a Roku box connected to the tv which uses one video input, our old dvr which uses another video input and finally the Directv stuff which uses the third video input.
So: The channels take FOREVER to change. I mean like 10-20 seconds. Sometimes as low as 7. It is driving me crazy! Is this how it is supposed to work? How do people put up with it? How can this be progress? My parent's first color tv changed channels more effectively than this!
Are there any solutions, I couldn't find any on the directv web forum, push the red button etc... In my state I have 15 days to reneg on the deal... So the clock is ticking!
Anyone solve a similar issue? Or do you just suffer?
