    I was trying to search for a show On Demand, and I noticed that the "browse by channel" option is no longer available. Is it a problem with my system, or is it missing from yours as well? Thank you in advance for your help. Direct TV had me reset, and nothing changed. They escalated the issue to the "engineers" whatever the fuck that means. For your help

    Escalated to engineers... I guess that means you're not the only one and its s problem on the network. Not just isolated to you.

    its a tech support euphemism: it means "we can't fix it; you're bothering us; everyone else is at the party; we dumped it on tier 2 support. Now go away"

    Knowing Direct TV support this is probably true.
    Reset doesn't fix it then pass the buck.

    i wasn't kidding: this is standard for tier 1 tech support everywhere. companies pay tier 1 garbage. they are just supposed to answer the phone, and if the symptoms match those written up in their knowledge base they can try to fix it. these are the guys who tell you to power cycle the cable box. if they can't fix it they are to escalate it to tier 2.
