As a good few
PC users will tell you, sometimes the only solution is the three fingered salute
, and for TiVo
users having an array of troubles
with your DirecTV service, it seems the answer could be as easy as flipping the power switch. Oddly enough, it seems the list of recent complaints
surrounding unexplainable deletions and problems with Season Pass recordings can be remedied with a simple reboot
. A DirecTV spokesperson even stated that "a reboot will clean things up and the unit will start recording again," but we've got a sneaking suspicion there's just more to it than that. Nevertheless, that's the word from the higher-ups, so if you're on the verge of a total meltdown due to AV misbehavior, try the trusty restart trick a time or two, and if it still doesn't get things ironed out (read: the likely outcome), at least you now know precisely who
to yell at.
