sunday ticket schedule 2021

The schedule available at this link - https://www.directv.com/sports/nfl_schedules - is missing a lot of games. Is it safe to assume this schedule is incomplete?  I'd like to know before the cancellation date passes.  Thanks.

ch 200 News Mix (NMX)

I was excited to have this channel. But we’ve somehow set one of the channels to the Weather Channel, instead of the news channel it was on. I can’t remember how to change it back to what I want. Can some one help? Every search I’ve done points me to really old posts.

Dish SwiM Problem

I recently posted a problem with 103 even transponders, and it was recommended I replace the SWM 8. I purchased a DTV AHKAKUKIT (I live in Hawaii) so I could replace both the lnb and SWM. I ran the coax from the new lnb directly to the old power inserter which was probably a big mistake. I had no si

Access Denied

The web interface stopped working after the switch from ATT TV to Direct TV. After logging in, it redirects to att.tv/watchnow and then generates a reference like below. Not too happy with the screwup. Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www.att.tv/watchnow" on this server.
