Hi new to the page and Have to say I have learned so much in the short time here so thanks.
I was using the HR10-250 and just upgraded to the HR20-100 so far so good!
:welcome_s ElectronJunky and trojandan!
Can someone recommend a link to a thread where i can get info about not receiving signal on one of the satellites for an HR-20. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and have zeros on all the transponders for 99
See this thread: http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=91048
I've been lurking on the board for a few months. Now that I DirecTV service up and running I may as well join the community.
I guess I'll start out with a requisite newbie question:
My installer wasn't sure if the HR20 would turn on automatically to record a scheduled show. He suggested I keep it on at all times. Every other DVR I've had will turn on automatically for a recording. Will this one?
Can't wait for the new HD channels in September and the Big Ten Network.
Well, it will record while in standby. There is no off, except for pulling the plug (I realize it says OFF on the remote). While putting the unit in standby used to cause problems for some, those days seem to be long gone. When in standby, the unit will accomplish background scheduling tasks faster, in some cases.

Excellent. Thanks for the reply and the welcome!

Please ignore the previous post had some error posting and that was a test to see if it was working now.
I have been lurking for a long time (2+ years) and thought it was time to exit the shadows. The information and help here is tremendous! I decided that it was worth the charge to join the club! (only Board I have paid $ for).
Been with D* since 1995 when we relocated to north TX and when it was still 2 companies (USSB and hmmm cannot remember the other) But I remember paying over $2K for 2 Sony receivers and well worth it so I could get ST and follow my beloved Bears!
Next objective is to get D* to upgrade my 2 HR10-250's with HR20's at little or no cost to me. Of course using the information I have gleaned here as help! I had initial discussion with D* on Friday, but that is for another post in another thread.
Thanks again for all the information this board and it's members provide it is appreciated!
Hello everyone. This is my first time here and first post as well. I made the call to D* last night and ordered their HD DVR to replace my HR10-250 Tivo. Installation is set for 8/14. Hopefully the change will go smoothly. Is there a specific thread to the differences between the 2 boxes, or a guide similar to switching from a PC to a Mac? I'm sure it will be fine, but I'd like to make the switch as easy as possible.

Take a look at this thread it will help with your install.
Is it necessary to have new RG6 cable run from the dish when the installer comes? My current cables were installed about a year ago as part of the D* Movers Connection. I have 4 cables coming from the dish into the house and into a 6x8 multiswitch.
No your cables that are already there will work perfect.
Great, thanks! :righton:
God, I love the HR-20, Granted it was just installed yesterday, but the speed of the unit is incredible, especially when recording a program. Hopefully the gremlins will stay away.
Well, it's cold turkey for me. I finally bit the bullet and replaced all four of my Tivos with the 2 HR-20s and 2 R15s. So far, so good. Can't say I've noticed much of a diff in the picture quality, but I am looking forward to those new HD channels in the next few months.
I will really miss those DLBs once football season kicks into high gear though.
My first HR20's are being installed Saturday. Two of them. I'm excited to get them and the new D* channels that are scheduled to follow. However, I must say as a long time Tivo lover, I'm a little sad to be making the switch.
Anyway... just wanted to say hi and make my first post over here. I'll be sure to post my thoughts and experiences with the new HR20s when I get them.
