I understand that part but what I don't understand is how are you guys coming up with that chipset . The one I ordered from Newegg.com don't list that info . I also went to the site of the company that made that cable I ordered from newegg.com . I couldn't find any info on the chipset . But its reported working on the D-11 box so im guessing it should work for the D-12-100 box like I have in my house from directv .Ill report back on Monday or Tuesday if she is working on that cable also there is a cheaper one that will run on Linux too on newegg.com I can link it to my page if you like .

I got it and no luck it wont switch the channels on the directv 12 box So Im at that point where I cant understand how to get this to work . I need to change the channels so when im watching a show it can switch for recording and just general television viewing for my replay box to change the channels why Im watching live television too . That way I can back it up .

that sound like too much trouble to do . I was looking over the internet and seen some mods but they seen too hard . I don't want to brick the machine . My wife would get pissed if I did that . She paid for it from ebay to record her shows when she's at work .


Yes guys I could of got directv genie but Im trying to same some money right now . Its not in the buget for the dvr boxes . They want like a extra 10.00 or 20.00 a box plus it was a extra 100.00 bucks or so for the dvr's them self . We wanted to get satellite and be in buget . If I had extra cash on had then no problem . But Im happy with television other than time warner cable there canceling analog cable and we needed some television to watch . I cant have my senor father not being able to watch television in this house I live in .


So guys the replay tv dvr was a good buy for me . I just recorded G.I Joe last night of it and the picture is great off it Im also betting the sound is 5.1 Dolby Digital too or DTS 5.1 . but my Marantz receiver sr-18 ex is not working right now , Im in the process of fixing her I sould have it working soon with luck .


DVR service is $10 a month for the whole account. The charge per box is $6 but if you replaced your current standard the only increase in your monthly service would be $10. If you were to get a HD DVR it would be $10 more for HD, and a Genie would be $3 more on top of that.


It sounds like a SD DVR might be a good starting place for you as it's a lesser increase but you won't have to deal with the time and money testing different parts to finally get something that will half do what you want.

All comments are my own. Unless specifically stated, my views do NOT represent the views of DIRECTV

duckland, replacing your D12 with a directv DVR is only going to cost you $10/month more....and save you thousands of dollars in headaches....you may be able to get a SD DVR from Directv very cheaply.
