    I assume you mean HR54 not HR55.
    How many times do we have to post? DirecTV will NOT activate more than one genie per account.

    I called directv few times and now I have 3 hr54 on my account and one mini gene. I wonder if hr54 get charged a outlet fee since seems direct tv does not charge anything for hr54. What is the best lnb I bought swm16 single wire to run all hr54 having 4 port splitter is good

    They charge $7 per outlet but your first one is free. So if you have 4 devices, you'd be paying $21 for your devices connected to your TVs.

    You mean DIRECTV actually activated three HR54s on the same account? ...

    Well much kudos to you then if you really managed to accomplish this, but God knows how you did it, and whether they'll all remain activated is a big question as well.

    Since the system should not have even allowed a CSR to do this beyond the first activated Genie ....

    Having more than one Genie on one account causes a technical issue. There is a work around for this issue but DIRECTV chose not to implement it. That is why DIRECTV only allows one Genie per account. So unless those 3 HR54s you claim you now have are on three different accounts whoever you talked with was blowing smoke up your ass.

    Just for ha ha's - please go to each of your 4 devices and select -> Menu/Settings/Info & Test. Don't do a test, but please let us know what each of them says next to Receiver.

    Really???
    How does the Mini know which HR54 to pair with?
    What sort of dish type do you have to support than many satellite tuners?

    A single SWM16 will NOT work for three HR54s, in the unlikely event you actually got three activated on one account.

    Does this mean you haven't tried your HR54 array yet? Figures.

    Another clue: Cheapest plan
