Help with my DirecTV issue
The issue in GetHuman2964649's own words
We have experienced several different errors with the DVRs on two of our receivers. They are random and intermittent. Such as no recordings listed (requiring a reboot), or certain episodes missing, or playback suddenly stopping with an error message indicating Genie disconnected from network. A second issue is the screen going blank when watching TV, and reappearing in about * or * seconds... happens on many different channels.

GetHuman2964649 did not yet indicate what DirecTV should do to make this right.

How GetHuman2964649 fixed the problem
I called * *** *** **** and navigated through the menus. I called at about *:** on a Wednesday, *:** p.m. eastern time. It took a couple minutes to get through the menus, but I only had to wait less than a minute to talk to a representative. She was very helpful and has set up an appointment for a technician to come out to diagnose the issues.
