BTW I get the grey screens
I hope they turn on the HD tonight and the Big Ten network is lit up tomorrow in HD!
works in fredericksburg, va.
Earl just posted that no one should call DirecTV CSRs. I'd put the URL here, but I'm not allowed to yet as I haven't posted 5 times....
Not necessarily, I've heard of too many non-WB68 or 168 multiswitches being installed and also the useage of diplexers. Are you good on both these counts?
I'm in Woodbridge...
still searching for signal...
Yep, they should change slides, get moving picture, etc.
by def. MPEG is the standard method for compression and decompression of MOVING images.
Just did everything in Stuart Sweet's checklist thread, "general troubleshooting for 498 problems" and nothing worked, now have HR20/TV connected via HDMI. Still just that lovely, never-changing, black or gray screen.
When you refresh your service via DirecTV's website, is programming supposed to mess up a little to show something happened? I've used that refresh service thing twice now, and nothing happened to interrupt what I was watching once, not even a little.
Try checking channels 480 and 481.
480; 103 B-Band Odd (13V). BBC confirmed working.
481; 103 B-Band Even (18V). BBC confirmed working.
I'm getting the confirmation that the BBC are working. My H20 IS getting but NOT my HR20.
Thanks for the reply. Yes I have the WB68 multiswitch.
Channel 498 lit up here!....HR20-700.....1080i......
I have 480 and 481 saying B-Bands confirmed, but still gray screen on 498.
In all the posts of complaining about not getting a congrats screen, or an intermittent congrats screen; the common thread is HR20-?00 (mostly -700s).
Seems that at least 95% of all the H20s (that are aligned properly and have a BBC connected) are getting the congrats screen fine and all the time.
I am showing 498 here in Harrisburg Pa or close to Harrisburg
I get those messages, with the gray/black screen.
498 gives gray/black also
hr20-700 directly connected to slimline, 65 ft cable
481 searching for signal
can I assume I have the correct satellite dish? The reason I ask is that our dish is located high up on a three story roof and was upgraded between 18-24 months ago. I didn't pay attention then what it was upgraded to. I know I have the correct receivers and B-Band converter. Even Directv left me a voice recording that I needed to switch out my dish according to their records. Unless I get up there with a 40 foot ladder I can't otherwise tell if I have the correct dish. But, I am getting the "congratulations message" on 498 on both H20 receivers. Is it safe to say i am good to go regarding all the required equipment? Thanks
