    Got the install completed. He did NOT replace the LNB. Said it was not required.

    It's not required for now, but if/when Directv moves the 4k programming to the reverse band satellite you will.

    They won't replace it if you have more than 13 tuners. I have 14 and they would not replace it because their documentation says the reverse band LNB says it only supports 13 tuners. If you have 13 or less no idea why they wouldn't replace it.

    More accurately, if/when DTV decides to use reverse band for 4K or any other programming the customer needs (such as the non-4K content currently occupying the reverse band).

    I feel really stupid now, but...
    When a show is over, and there is like 3 minutes left on the time bar, how the heck do you delete it without either FF to the end and waiting for the prompt, or hitting Info, arrowing down the delete, arrow over to Yes, and hit select? Someone said to hit the red button, but it just goes Boink. Man Ive been using a Tivo for to long.

    OK that worked. Now my next issue. I created an autorecord series link for NASCAR.
    I found it was easier to just record the three series, but I cannot delete the series link for NASCAR.
    When I highlight it, it says "Hit R to delete scheduled shows" which works, and removes the 30 some shows it had scheduled. What I cannot figure out is how to delete the autorecord series link completely. It just boinks when I hit the red button like you would on a regular series link.

    EDIT: Ive been reading the forums and none of the suggestions work either. Is there a way to do a factory reset and delete everything in the HR54 and start over?

    They're carrying some of the music channels from 119W that aren't available to non-RB SWM3 LNBs and most everyone subscribes to them (whether or not they listen to them).

    Those are no longer on reverse band, they moved them to 103ca. The only thing on reverse band right now is a mirror of the international channels carried on the 95 satellite, but those will also be moved to Ka before too long. They started making the first moves to make that happen just a few days ago.
