  • Military Channel?

    Before I call DirecTV and spend an hour on hold...

    Have the Military Channel and History International been canceled? One day they were there and then they were gone.

    Several weeks ago the Military Channel was alive and well in the Conroe, Texas area. Since then who knows? I would try the HistoryChannel.com and see if you can ask them.

        Looks like I need to call DTV. They are still listed on their website. The only thing worse than calling the Cable company is calling the Dish company!!!

          hmmm seems like they and the phone companies (including cellular) really put customer service last. Funny how this seems to be universal no matter where you go.

            I may just need to reset my receiver (unplug it and plug it back in).

              They're still there. I'm on DirecTV as well. I hope you can get some service out of them. I haven't as of yet.

                    Discovery absorbed Military Channel. AFAIK, History International still lives.

                      I'm on DTV like CD - Channel 287. I'm not sure why all the confusion - History Channel announced the merger well in advance on DTV, but perhaps didn't cover it as well on the other satellite servers.

                      It's a great channel, but it has a very high re-run factor and tends to stay away from the more obscure and less frequently covered areas of history. If I see the program about the Dessault Mirage one more time, I'm gong shopping for a shoulder-fired SAM!

                      Doc- try a "hard boot"* if you're having reception problems. I have them all the time here in the mountains - way too many 80 foot or better fir trees surrounding the house, and way too much snow and ice on the dish. I'm still working the problem of shielding the dish from the effects of snow, ice and hard rain, which clobber reception. For some reason, I keep thinking of large Tupperware bowls...

                      *hard boot: leave TV on, MUTE, and remove access card. Screen turns to fuzz.

                      depress and hold both the POWER and DOWN buttons simultaneously.

                      Screen will go blank, then fuzz will return.

                      Replace access card - intializing screen will pop up.

                      Proceed.

                      This procedure is useful after power outages, also a problem in the scenic Colorado Rockies.

                        All I needed to do was unplug the box and plug it back in...

                        I called DTV's Customer Service. The recording said: "If you are missing channels, reset your receiver by unplugging..."

                        I wish my dryer worked the same way: "If you are missing socks, reset your dryer by unplugging..."


                        Thanks everyone.

                          Doc, I'm sorry I didn't recommend that to you sooner. For anyone else out there who has satellite or digital cable if you get a "freeze up" unplugging is often all that is needed to reset the box and correct the problem.

                            I should have thought of that right away. It didn't occur to me since I was only missing those two channels.
