    I can't believe there such a major different in the picture quality vs dish network.
    So far the new UI not available.

    Due to a goof we didn't rev the new Genie 2 HS17 nor the new c61 Client but they be back this monday.

    Can someone pleases check me on this just how tuner dose the HR54-700 have it listing 7 the info page but everywhere list it as have only 5 tuner so what deal here

    If you only have 5 tuners listed is because they did not install a reverse band lnb when they come back they will as thry are needed to recod 4k

    It new service just install the other day and just want look at LNB and listed as Reverse Band 3D2RBLNB
    The spec that are listed that I have read are say that HR54-700 has support for 5 tuner support where Genie 2 HS17 has 7 tuner support so what I don't get is how come HR-54 show 7 tuner, then it should be able to record 7 HD channel at once in of stead 5 HD channel.

    Okay - I understand- with the RB lnb the HR54 will show 7 Channels - the first 5 tuners record do Not 4K channels - Tuner 6 & 7 are to record & display double bonded 4k channels -That's why it currently shows 7 tuners active .

    Well you will see more turners - reason because you can have 2 4k tv's on at the same time displaying or playing 4K -but you should be able to record 7 -the rest are reserved for (4) 4K

    The fact that you see 7 tuners on the HR54, but can't record 7 programs simultaneously is not a problem, but an indication of the way that the HR54 handles 4K content. With the HR54, only 5 of the 7 tuners are active at any given time. 2 of the tuners are dedicated to 4K programming. When they are in use, 2 of the other 5 tuners are disabled. When no 4K content is being recorded (or viewed), the 5 "regular" tuners are active.

    When you get the HS17, you are going to see the same situation. However, it will show you 11 tuners, when it can only use 7 tuners at a time.

    Your reply is confusing. However in my case I needed two separate and distinct logins. One for AT&T cellular service (which I had for years) and the other for DirecTV. When I tried using my AT&T login for DirecTV I got a popup saying I should have 2 separate accounts. From what I understand unless you started both cell & DirecTV at the exact same time at the same store they haven't started combining them. You could easily call DirecTV to find out as well but that is how it worked for me as an existing AT&T Mobile subscriber a year before getting DirecTV.

    Too tight on the "rules" makes it impossible to compare.
