I changed my old receivers to a Genie Hr44 and 2 minis.


All went well except that I lost my landline phone service.


A  call to service resulted in a recommendation to disconnect the phone line from the Genie.


This worked but it didn't address the problem of why the connection can't be made.

Make sure you are not connecting the phone line to the ethernet jack and if you have DSL, make sure to use a DSL filter or two

Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.
