    I just received the box this morning and was going to hook it up were a H21 resides. The H21 was just installed yesterday as part of DECA upgrade. Do I have to post in a thread for HR24 activation???

    Also, if you are still using a legacy setup, you may need to redo satellite setup if it gets stuck on boot. Press {Menu} and you will have a limited setup menu.

    Figured I'd tag this on, since I too just got my HR24-200. I'm at work now, but ran home at lunch to see it, will set it up tonight. Only thing, I did not receive any video cables, so I'll be stuck on svideo until I can round up some more. Are all these shipping without video cables?

    More once I get up and running this evening. Hope things are working for you spidey!

    Yes, field test receivers generally ship without cables.

    Ok, but I did the dishes early this morning. I can't stand eating on dirty dishes. :D I'm going to go look to see if it came on yet.

    There should not be a need to force a download on these, in fact it may not even find anything if you try.

    Ok, so I'm hooked up, legacy setup, b-band converters are check, satellite setup: slimline-5, multiswitch, single tuner (for now). All progresses, but then I get a screen that says to call DirecTV to complete service activation.

    I have refreshed services using the link above, but it does not seem to work. Also, RBR does nothing... suggestions??

    Mine came today. Receiving sat info now. All looks WONDERFUL. SO excited to be a part of this!

    Are the stats listed anywhere (what distinguishes this model from others, for example (other than it's a Sammy, obviously. LOL))?

    Mine arrived today, hooked it up and it worked out of the box. I just pulled my HR22 and replaced it with the HR24-200. Now I need to move the HR22 the the kids room and move their H20 to the guestroom.

    Can you set up a HR20 on SWM to only use 1 tuner? If not I may have to try and convince the wife to allow the SWM16 purchase......
