I had DirecTV installed last week, and I have a few questions for you fine folks. Here is my setup – HR24 upstairs and H24 downstairs connected via the whole-home DVR service. I also have their Internet connection kit connected to my router. The HR 24 is upstairs where we do the majority of our general TV watching (37”LCD) and the H24 is in the home theater (54” plasma). I went back and forth on where the DVR should be - because even though we watch more TV upstairs, I don’t watch any live TV at all in the theater room. More on this in a moment. The install went quite well – aside from the installer telling me I don’t need to hook up my rooftop antenna – because “antennas don’t work anymore.” But that can be an aside for a different day. I have a couple questions that I can think of now, maybe more will come later... My first question is about the quality I should be expecting from watching a recording on the H24 (via the whole home service). In short – the picture quality of the Packer/Cowboy game last night was nowhere near as sharp as it was when viewing from the HR24 directly. I would equate it to watching a show on Hulu as opposed to a OTA HD signal. I was even able to an a/b comparison directly as I have a 50’ HDMI cable running from the HR24 upstairs to the 54” plasma downstairs as well as having the H24 connected via HDMI to the 54” plasma. Picture quality wasn’t even close when watching the recording through the H24. Should this be the case? Along this same line, the speed of the 30 second skip and fast forward functions were much slower when viewing the recording through the H24 as opposed to the HR24. Is this to be expected? My other main question is centered on the remotes themselves. I may need to do a little more playing with this, but it seems that either remote will control either box. Is this normal? I have an old remote extender still plugged in, and when I was messing with the TV downstairs my wife yelled down and asked why I was changing the channels upstairs. Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated.
