Should I call? Had pixilation on 603 watching the TOF (cycling).
How does NatGeoHD look? Some pixilation during the TOF is normal. I'm sometimes surprised it is as good as it is. What is the actual signal strengths for 103?
Didn't check any others, but after running the sat set-up the pixilation was gone. I do understand that sometimes during a bike race you will see it and freezes, but was different than that.
HR20/100 103 shows Not acquired. Should it be?
Oops 103. (ca) shows 86%
It happens every year doing the TOF. Its just normal transmission issues for the helicopters or motorbikes.
gio12. This was different. During commercial? Yep. I know what the motorbike freezes and that look like.
So when I did the Sat setup again I found something unusual. On the 103 (ca) one Tuner 2 has a good signal, but Tuner 1 goes on & off.
On the DVR I was watching HGTV with a good picture. I switched to DIY, good picture. In guide I set it to record HGTV. When I looked at the recording, it was pixilated and unwatchable. I somehow got it to switch back to the other Tuner and the picture was good again. DVR Tuner problem?
Looks like a DTV call is in order.
If you are still using 2 cables to the back of your DVR, try reversing the coax hookup's, if it moves to the other tuner, its probably bad connection on that cable run somewhere. If you are on SWiM, it will be something amiss at the other end of the setup...
Checked signal on 103 (ca) this morning and it was fine. I guess it was not my problem.
Pixelation probably was not your problem, but the red x probably was. What does "fine" mean? Low 90s on all transponders is "fine". Some transponders in the mid-80s means you will still get OK reception, but does not meet DirecTV's install verification levels, which is why you get the red x. 86 I think is just below the IV standard.
So I'm getting tired of some if my recorded shows being unwatchable. I got through to Teck Support. Had me record a Chanel, switch to another Chanel and it was all pixilated. Have a service call scheduled for Friday morning. Finally! Seems to be a tuner issue.
Oh yea, pixilation is the issue.
DTV Tech came this morning. Swapped silver DVR for black DVR. No idea of problem. Asked if I wanted their Internet connection for no cost and I said sure. Tried to hook up wireless and then found out I had an Apple router. Won't work wirelessly! Really? My Roku box connects just fine through WiFi. SVR getting a software upgrade now.......
Apple routers will work to the best of my knowledge
Installer told me that.
A router is a router, Apple or not it will work fine.
Do the DVRs support WPS? Apple does theirs differently with the pin. Unlike everyone else, theirs is secure.
The wireless CCK supports WPS and manual password entry. There should be no problem with a wireless CCK and an Airport.
