Yes, online is quick. I pick the box that needs re-activation and hit the button. Within 30 seconds it's working.

You can reactivate it yourself on line. No need to call in and wait to get a service person.

Here's a situation that I ran into recently. I have two NON-HD receivers on my DirecTV account, one in my S&B and one in my RV, so I pay the extra few dollars a month for the second receiver. I also pay extra for local channels. A few weeks ago we traveled outside the boundaries of our spot-beam for local channels. I went to DirecTV's website, logged on, went to the "chat" feature & asked the service rep to change my Service Location so I could get local networks. I've done this many times over the years with never a serious problem, just frustration when I get an inexperienced service rep. Here's what happened: The service rep did her thing, I did my thing & No Local Channels. We were both perplexed. The service rep double-checked the settings, went off-line for a few minutes. When she came back on-line, she explained that the reason I couldn't get local channels was because they were only broadcast in HD in that geographic service area & not available in standard definition. I had to use our OTA antenna & put up with pixelation, especially on PBS station. So there, another example of progress (?), I guess.

I have found that if i pick up a local channels digital or HD signal on my over the air antenna the picture quality is much better than the direct tv sat hd signal.

Something something not compressed on ota broadcast.

I almost always use the over the air for local stuff because the picture is better, sound synchs with the sound system better.
