I just had a guy claiming to be from DirecTV show up at my door. He wanted to offer me a new deal. He said he would re-do my three DVRs and give me a substantial discount on my packages.

I told him I wasn't interested unless he could guarantee that I would get three HR-24s. He made a phone call then said not only could he guarantee the HR-24, in two months, he could get me an HR-25 which was a new DirecTV DVR coming out. HR-25??? Has anyone heard of this beast?

BTW, I passed on the offer when he told me that I would have to create a new account under a new name and phone number. I'm not a dumb as my wife thinks.

Who knows what is coming next months, those manufactures are not privy to inform us about new product if it not directed to stakeholder's meeting.

Sounds like a local installer trying to drum up some business by going door to door. The fact that they wanted you to scam DirecTV by using a different name and number to create a new account is more than enough of a reason to pass on that offer.

That's called "account fraud" and will lose that dealer their contract *when* they get caught.

Under a new name, a new phone number? That should be enough to send up a red flag. This is a scam, fraud, whatever you want to call it. You were smart to pass on it.

Could be HR25 in a pipe if it those "New-600" and "New-700" at Doug site.

Firmware numbers don't look right.

Plus, so far LG (-600) has not made a DVR, only receivers. Yes, things can change.

And the NEW-700 firmware version is x0063. That version would seem to be even earlier than the original HR20 Firmware version.

So here is my guess. The NEW-600 is an H Receiver in the size of the H25-500, but made by LG. The NEW-700 is a client for the new HR34-700. Being a client-only box, and completely new product, would explain why its firmware version is so far off the current sequence. Plus it would make sense that the same manufacturer would initially make both the server and client.

I wouldn't read too much into those firmware numbers. DIRECTV tests a lot of stuff that never leaves the lab.

I would; FW, what is testing in the labs, doesn't spooling thru sats.

You don't know as much as you think you do about how Directv does its testing.

Found the following on the Winegard website:

Dealer Alert: DIRECTV Receivers (H25, HR25) SWM Only
June 24, 2011

Winegard products require multi-switch technology and will not operate with SWM only receivers. Please review the following list of non-compatible DIRECTV receivers:

H25
HR25

Please contact Winegard Customer Service at 800-288-8094 to order compatible DIRECTV receivers for your customers.


(Link: winegard.com/dealer/index.php)

Now I know a lot of stuff posted by companies is just plain wrong, but does anyone know if there is a HR-25 in the wild to match the H-25?

Today, no. There is no HR25 in the wild. What tomorrow, next week, next month holds remains to be seen.
