    So when are you jerks at primecast going to give us 3d? I've heard ESPN 3D is mindblowing, but unfortunately we have the some kind of 3rd world satellite middleman called primecast ROBBING us of our 3d. Hey Primecast, go back to Kazakhstan or whatever heck hole you crawled out of! Primecast sucks. 6 months later and still no 3d from these buttholes.

    I wouldn't worry about 3D now - not appealing, costly, short list ... Soon glassless 3D TV sets will come to the market, then new MFH-3 FW will come ...

    Los...
    And even if Primecast or whatever other MFH-3 operator were not currently providing DirecTV's 3D channels, until 3D capable receivers like the future HR24i are available, it won't make any difference.

    Neither Primecast or any other operator really have any control over the availability of new IP enabled consumer receivers.

    That's DirecTV's area of responsibility.

    WOW!

    Talk about "Open big fat mouth and insert crap encrusted foot"!

    You have absolutely no inkling of an idea what you're even thinking of talking about. The operators who have to not only put up with ignorant know nothing clients as yourself on the one hand and have to put up with whatever Directv wants to dish out on the other, have absolutely nothing to do with you not being able to receive in 3D. No more than it is our fault that you aren't afforded the benefit of upgraded equipment capable of doing so. The fact that you ere being afforded diminished services when compared to the RF world, lies entirely with Directv. You and others like you think you're....

    Let me just repeat that "it's better to not post and let someone think you're a total and complete moron than to do so and remove all doubt", or something like that.

    As I have stated before, MFH3 is the proverbial redheaded stepchild of Directv.

    I do not have any connection with the operator mentioned here, but had to reply as I'm sick and tired of having to put up with such tremendous idiots as yourself and having to suck it up.

    My sympathies go out to anyone that has to interface with you on a daily basis, I'm talking in general, not just where related to Directv.

    Wow!:nono2:

    I consider myself a tolerant, open-minded individual, who provides much latitude when it comes to insults.

    But your comment is so on point, GTS.

    Hey have you people looked at your elected officials? Being a moron is in vogue. It's been cool for at least the last 10 years. Have you listened to popular music lately? You have to be dumb to survive these days. So thanks for the compliment guys! But I digress...

    Also, guess what primecast minions? I'm the customer. In a capitalist society the customer usually gets what he wants. Unfortunately my condo association signed a deal with primecast so I'm stuck for now until I lobby for a new operator. However, my posts make anyone googling primecast think twice about signing a deal with them. I haven't called them in 6 months anyways so don't get yer panties up in a bunch. I hope you guys enjoy the rest of your day.

    What part of "Primecast and other MFH-3 operators hands are tied (about 3D) until DirecTv puts out a H(R)-24i receiver" eludes you?

    GTS, thank you for the support. However, I am pretty sure I know who the customer is, based on his description of the problem, and if I am right, he is a VIP customer of ours. We try to treat all of our customers with respect, even if they cannot reciprocate. I know that he is not your customer, so it might feel good to tell him off, but please understand that doing so may only inflame the situation further for us, when our main goal is to keep the situation calm and professional. We are here to help as best we can, and since this is a technical forum, I'd appreciate it if we could keep the comments of a technically relevant and helpful nature.

    To everyone who would like to be notified when the HR24i is available: please call us and let us know. I will make a post here when it is, but the fastest way to be notified is to call into the call center and let them know your wishes.

    The MFH3 system is fully capable of 3D. The limitation is strictly with the HR20i receiver hardware. The system and the STB are capable of MRV. I have not yet seen the successor to the HR20i in our labs so that would suggest it is still some ways off..:nono:

    MFH3 is no known as IPAdvantage.

    You should be running a 4 gateway system at the moment which provides extra tuners for all transponders except possibly 99B left or right or 103B left or right depending on your market. There may be only one spare tuner for one of those polarities.

    There is no currently no 5th gateway solution to give more spare tuners but it would be possible to create one....but yea, there is a cost.

    Yes to all three.
    There is a definite need for spares.
    There is a 5th gateway solution.
    There is certainly a cost involved.

    There's also a problem with the system, which has been acknowledged by Directv, but since it only affects a relatively low number of subs who have a particular programming package is extremely low on the repair priority list.
    Still no word on a new receiver.

    Easy answer... you want 3d? Get a 3d bluray player and roll with that.

    There has not been a 5th gateway deployed yet to date. It is perfectly doable but hasn't happened. Requires a special wiring harness that hasn't been done so far. I suspect no one has been willing to take on the cost since Direct isn't subsidizing it.

    And have not seen a successor to the HR20i yet...so I doubt it exist.

    I wanted to bump this thread, are there any updates on the HR24i or a potential HR34i being tested in the labs?

    I cannot stand the HR20i. It is extremely slow, never connects to the internet, and I cannot get 3D.

    Any information is greatly appreciated.
