While AT&T employees do look at forum posts from time to time, we are here to represent the forum with our experiences as customers and do not represent AT&T in any official capacity with our responses and do so on our own time unpaid and off the clock. As employees we are not rewarded nor compensated to participate in these forums This forum is comprised of regular customers to communicate with other customers to offer advice and share experiences same as any other user Although there is a small team of customer care specialists that monitor the forums the sheer volume of posts are simply too many posts for these agents to respond to each one of them.

In most cases yes. Just unplug the old TV and put the new in its place. Remember TVs default to their antenna input, so you just have to set that to the one your DirecTV box is plugged into (HDMI-1, HDMI-2, etc.).


However if there is a bigger change from old to new, you might need to adjust a couple settings. What model is your DirecTV box? Did you change to a HDTV from an old SD-only TV?
