    Yeah ...

    And since they are all SD channels its not like it would take a lot of satellite bandwidth to do it.

    I don't know, ... I think someone posted once that its a contractual thing for those channels limiting them only to local markets and not national feeds. But that explanation never made much sense to me. :mellow:

    Multiple HR44 freezes 8+ while viewing HBO on demand view now. This is the first time the problem interfered with viewing. Comcast Internet speed was over 20 at this time.

    Will a reset help this issue?

    Hello all,

    I went through this entire thread and saw a couple of references to HDMI outs. I recently upgraded to Genie and just downloaded a 1080p movie to watch this past weekend. Downloaded on Friday and didn't watch until Sunday. When launching the movie, the screen went black and my TV (Samsung) seemed to lose connection to the feed from the Genie and AVR (Denon 3808ci). TV said something like "No Input Signal" or whatever it displays when no signal is getting to it. About 30 seconds to a minute after launching the movie, it suddenly appeared on the TV. Ran fine and when finished, I hit the delete button and screen went black again wit the "No Input Signal" message again. I waited for about 2-3 minutes and nothing. Had to turn off the TV and Genie and back on to reestablish the connection. Is this what people are referring to as HDMI outs? If so, is this a bug with 1080p content or something else?

    With a Genie Mini, can you attach it to an analog TV? If so what do you need?

    Certainly sounds similar, however my blackouts usually only last a couple of seconds or less. It doesn't last long enough for me to see "no input signal" on my TV. It also doesn't only occur when starting and stopping a recording or on-demand content. It will happen randomly while watching a live show.

    It hasn't happened to me since I pulled my monoprice HDMI switch out of the mix so I suspect that just went bad, but I'm going to try it out on the next few genie upgrades before I am convinced it gave up the ghost.

    Issue: Caller ID Ghost call.

    My 2-day-old HR44-700 is having an odd Caller ID issue. When the phone is in use, every few minutes it flashes "Caller ID - Caller Unavailible". I can confirm there's no 2nd call coming in. Caller ID worked fine with the same jack when it was going into my older HR24. Not only that, but I don't even think my local caller ID service indicates when there's a second call coming in.

    Apparently others have the same issue.

    Right. Something that was only on this device in this fashion was there by sheer accident. Must have programmed itself.

    The old H20 also has/had the scanning function

    I just noticed a software update pushed out to the H20 a couple days ago, and while I haven't noticed any changes it is possible they disabled the scanning functionality so all receivers are 'equal'. So unless someone can confirm this is still true for an H20 running 0x4239 I wouldn't assume the H20 still scans.

    Fortunately for me I only care about the 4 big networks on my H20s (and I have no Genies) but even though it doesn't impact me, I think it is beyond stupid that Directv would remove this from the Genie and call it an "enhancement". Every TV set with an ATSC tuner is able to do a channel scan, there's no reason in the world why Directv should not permit this. If they think it will cause problems or confusion make it some sort of hidden option so it is at least possible to do, and tell people that the capability is totally unsupported by Directv.

    Here is another update. My case manager from direction of engineering group, suggested that I try to use the rgb composite. I had switch to composite from hdmi and had not seen any problems. I no longer see 1080p video. My case manager also had mentioned that there seems to be more and more case dealing with hdmi handshake issue.

    FYI: Red , Blue and Green for Video is Component.

    Correct, the Component video will display 1080i for it highest resolution. If you are not doing PPV movies it is the highest that is broadcast.
    I have been running my Samsung and DTV HR23 and now HR24 using the Component hookup ever since they were having lots of HDMI Handshake problems. It never has a problem because it just sends the signal, no communication between the 2 devices.

    Aren't you also limited to like 480p on HBO and other Premium networks due to the lack of HDCP with analog connections? Kind of defeats the purpose of HD.

    Also FYI: I don't think the component out on the DIRECTV receivers is even the "RGB," but the "Y/R-Y/B-Y" component standard. :)

    But I agree about the superiority of component over HDMI in the hassle-free aspect, particularly when you throw in the HDCP encryption requirement for the premium channels which really makes continuous proper HDMI handshaking critical and thus a nightmare.
