Anyone found a way to contact Direct TV - DirecTV

Curious if anyone has found a way to contact direct tv? If you don't have an hour to get transferred around to people on the phone that are in call centers is there a way to contact them? My direct tv box does not work and hasn't for almost a week. After an hour or more on the phone they were supposed to send me one. Spent another hour on the phone with a couple people yesterday. Still no new dvr box. Sure would be nice to have a way to email them or actually call them locally or chat online. I'm sure they will give me a bill credit for the days I have not hat tv! Lol
