Is the HR20-700 SWM compatible?
OK thanks b/c i have a dtv contractor here who says it isnt
Probably because when the HR20's were made they were going to call it "FTM" not "SWM". Tell him to use the port labeled "FTM".
That's exactly what i told him. After arguing with him for 15 minutes i told him hey just go run a freaking wire from the dish and plug it into the receiver (before u do all the wire fishing,etc) and see if it works. Boom, it works.
Guess it gets tough when your hardware is older then the tech's experience with DirecTV. :eek2: :lol:
its compatible but takes a special hookup for Whole Home....mopst tech will just swap them....which is good...if he wants to swap it let him
The HR20-700 doesn't need a special hookup, the HR20-100 does.
Hmmmm you are correct sir ...my bad (and PBR's)
Had the right color, but wrong manufacturer.
still if he wants to swap it...H/HR20's are pretty much obsolete
If the swap was for a 24, I'd jump on it, but if the tech walks in with a 21, they'll be walking back out with it.
oh wahooq dont scare me there with it not compatible with whole home dvr!
You're fine. Now, if you want 3D, then you have a problem with that box.
Yes, works fine with whole home, but does not support 3D....
Mine just keeps on running....!
That other plus is that the HR20s have a built-in OTA tuner.
Yep OTA is a great feature esp when it is pouring down rain!
ddint say not compatible
