Fixing DIRECTV Problems on Oil Rigs and Tankers

Fixing DIRECTV Problems on Oil Tankers

If you work on an oil rig or the tankers that ship oil, you spend a lot of time on the water.  Because of this, it’s nice to have DIRECTV on your platform or vessel.  Satellite TV provides you and your crew with something to enjoy whenever you’re not working.  But what happens if you have DIRECTV issues and you’re too far out to call a technician?  Well, you can always call Signal Connect.  Our reps can diagnose your DIRECTV connection issue over the phone, then walk you through the fix.  We offer this customer support to everyone with a DIRECTV account.    

Troubleshooting DIRECTV Issues for Marine Clients

The crew of an oil transport ship got an Error Code 771 with their DIRECTV installation.  Error 771 means your DIRECTV receiver is having trouble communicating with your satellite dish.  Because of this, no one on the ship could watch TV.  This was a problem, said Essa Alijelat, Signal Connect sales representative.  He explained, “In the offshore oil industry, crews can stay out for weeks and even months at a time.  Watching DIRECTV during breaks means the world to them when they’re away from home.”  Essa committed to fixing the problem so everyone could enjoy their favorite TV programming.

Fixing DIRECTV Connection Issues

The shipping company contacted Essa about the DIRECTV problem and he knew what to do.  Essa recalled, “An Error Code 771 is easy to fix for those of us in the satellite TV business.  They needed to confirm all of the settings for their dome and then resend a signal to the receiver to get their DIRECTV installation working again.”  Essa walked the crew through a setting for portable satellite dishes on boats and RVs.  “Their TV came back on and everyone was happy,” he added.  “I enjoyed helping them with this because I know how important having DIRECTV is to oil workers.”
