I have MRV subscription. My main DVR is a HR-24. I want to replace the HR-24 with a HR-34. Do I have to cal D*** before I exchange the receivers or can I change them and then call D*** to activate the HR-34 and make it the main receiver in the MRV?

Thanks in advance for the info.

Hello dieguy,

I have always swapped out the old piece of equipment for the new one and then powered on the new one before calling in D*** to activate the new equipment. I also told them the status of the old equipment such as moving to a new room or sending it back home to D*** :icon_cry: . In the latter case a recovery kit needed to be sent. :hurah:
My setup: 1 HR34/700 DVR no external HD, 1 HR24/500 DVR using WD 2TB Green HD and Antec MX-1 enclosure (used for CE) and 3 H24/700 receivers, 1 SL5 Dish (4 cable), 1 SWM16 Multiswitch, 1 Wired CCK. 1 Whole Home with DECA, 1 Sharp LC-37GP1U TV, 1 Sony Home Theater System HT-CT550W (Soundbar), 1 Impact 6x2 Component Video Matrix (Switcher) and 2 Sewell 1x2 HDMI Splitters with Ethernet, 3D Support and 4Kx2K Resolution with multiple hdmi cables with Ethernet.

You said your main DVR is a 24; do you have any other DVRs or receivers?

Ok.

If I was upgrading to a 34, I'd keep the hr24 and get rid of the h25. Additional backup recordings plus ability to pause, FF and Rewind live TV. No additional monthly fees. Unless you need the 25 for its size.

As long as everything is working right. There wont be anythign special for activation in the D* systems it will just start a 24 month contract the day it's activated as all HR34 are leased.

I am a former DIRECTV employee however all statements opinions, views, expressions, etc, are entirely my own even if logic says otherwise.

They DO NOT reflect on DIRECTV and or any partner, affiliated company's, polices, processes, opinions, or things that are not listed here.

Set up. HR24-200, HR24-200, HR22-200, H23-600. Whole Home, BBCCK, SL3 SWiM.

I have found that working with computers is like working with a toddler, sometimes there is no reason for the melt down, just keep on moving forward.
