Ah yes, I seem to remember this as well. Not sure if it's changed yet or not. I suspect that if SolidSignal gets them that that condition may not be true at that point.


Very true. I would supposed that as soon as SolidSignal has them in stock, that DirecTV will start using them for current customers as well.

I think the practical limit is not more than 3 or possibly four, but maybe it's higher. I'm sure that "unlimited" is not accurate, but I don't know what the theoretical limit is.

By the time you're "stacking" SWiM-32s, you're going to be splitting/amplifying the drops from the dish, so "unlimited" is feasible as long as you manage your input levels. ;)

Or you can just add another dish and start your own dish farm!

Solid Signal told me yesterday that the activation only for new members regarding the H25 was their hold up on the H25. I am supposed to be getting a replacement H25 not from DirecTV but from the authorized independent contractor that I used to originally get my in-laws equipment. They told me they could get me an H25 and I will let everyone know what happens.

While he might be able to get you one, the big question will be if you can activate though since you are not a new customer.

That is the big question. The activation will be for an account has recently been activated. I will let everyone know.

Someone told me that DirecTV is only authorizing H25 for new customers. Does anyone know if this is true? I am suppose to be getting an H25 for a malfunctioning H24. Thanks.

It's changed but the account must be SWM already.

H25s are now available for new customers, upgrades, former installs (both movers and returning customers) and on service swaps as long as the customer has or will have a SWiM setup.

No SWiM = No H25.

The could also get a H20, H21, H23 or H24 instead. Just depends on whats in that weekly shipment.

If DirecTV was sending it out you would be correct. Hopefully, I have been told reliable information.

Retailers tend to know what they have in stock. ;)

Not sure about "Corporates" rules/policies but my supplier is releasing the 25's on Friday and we can activate them on any kind of account..

seen the bulletin today while i was loading and h25's can now be activated on all new installs upgrades movers and like said swim capable. h25 swaps must be for h25

i installed 2 h25's today customers seem to like them for their size. they come 4 to a small box which is nice cause they dont take much space in the van.

So, aside from the adapter cable issue, is there any reason to not want a H25 over the other recievers? I'm getting my mover installation on Saturday and I'll be adding a second HD DVR (fingers crossed for an HR24) and an HD receiver.

If they give me an H25 for the receiver, should I just be doing a happy dance?

If you are running Category 5 cable and not using SwiM-based networking, then you would not want an H25.
