  1. DIRECTV HD DVR/Receiver Discussion
    Hello. it’s been a while that I have had an issue but this is the first place to come and check for ideas. My HR55/500 did a software upgrade on Tuesday 8/17. I think the upgrade, 0x154f, knocked out my AM 21. When the upgrade occurred the whole system became very laggy to the point it could...
  2. DIRECTV HD DVR/Receiver Discussion
    I'd like hardware suggestions and possible solutions. Here's my deal; I'm running an HR24-500 along with the AM21 OTA tuner. I hadn't been watching any OTA content for at least a couple years and only recently decided to get back into seeing what's out there in terms the locals. As I'd...

    It's been a long time... our HR34 has become unstable, requiring multiple RBRs in a week. Also, sometime recently, the AM21 has started getting 771 errors, and now fails completely. The OTA signal from the antenna directly into the TV is fine. So, time to call in the upgrade that we're due...

    After the software update to version 0x114b, when I try to go to: Settings > Sat & Antenna > Over-The-Air Antenna Setup > Edit Antenna Channels I cannot edit the channels and the OTA signal meters are not displayed. Is this a known issue?

    I've had an AM21 connected to my HR22 for years without issue. I noticed the AM21 power light was off this afternoon and got the "Tuner, Off-Air 1, has been removed" message on the screen. The more info button gives me: Verify external tuner is powered on Disconnect snd reconnect all...

    I have and HR54 and HR21 and both have an AM21 connected. They are connected via SWM and I’m using a diplexer to combine my roof antenna with the satellite signal. Behind each receiver I then use another diplexer to split it back out. I live in northeast PA and the AM21 does tune in most my...

    I got the new GUI last week on my HR44 and noticed that My OTA channels were showing up on the guide but had an error message when I tried to tune into them. A restart of the HR44 fixed that. But I can't get the channels to tune in on my upstairs C61. I've tested and restarted that as well...
  8. DIRECTV General Discussion
    Starting a couple of weeks ago, every night at 10 PM (Eastern Time), my DirecTV box blanks local sub channels from AM21. Just get a black screen. I switch the TV input to the antenna shared with AM21, and the channels are there. So, I can watch them after 10, and they show in the guide, but I...

    I just saw the FCC TV repack list for the Norfolk VA market and 9 out of the 10 full power stations are moving! ANYONE know how DIRECTV will be handling this?
  10. DIRECTV HD DVR/Receiver Discussion
    My AM21 won't let me watch (or record) OTA channels through my HR22 any more. I've tried unplugging both ends of it several times and even did the initial setup again and still nothing. All it says it is "Tuner, Off-Air 1 (or 2, it changed after a reboot for some reason), has been removed" and a...

    I am experiencing a five second delay between selecting a new channel from the C41-700 mini and the time the video for that channel appears on the TV screen. This time delay between channel changes is unacceptable for channel surfing. My equipment: HR44/500 DVR/server, Software: 0xbf4 Aug...

    My HR54-700 with AM21 Off Air Tuner is swapping 2 local channels. It only happens with channels 26.1 and 26.2. So when they swap, the wrong channel (and wrong show) gets recorded. Power cycling everything fixes it for a few days. To be clear 26.1 channel guide lists the shows for 26.1, but...
  13. DIRECTV Installation/MDU Discussion
    From the first day I installed an AM21 the local CBS affiliate was flaky, seemed okay sometimes and then would break up so badly as to be unwatchable. I never really pursued the cause. A month ago I accidentally bought a second AM21 (Put a bottom fishing bid on it and won). It arrived and I...

    Has anybody seen this one before? Got a second AM21 for a new HR24 and set it up exactly as I did the one on my HR44. First time through, it did not list a few available channels. Did the initial setup again and this time it comes back with the missing channels listed, but now several others had...

    Hello. I have a DirecTV HR24-100 DVR and I recently purchased the AM21 Off-Air Tuner to receive off air channels. Before I bought it, I had my antenna hooked up directly to the TV. I was getting 6 channels. All were around 55-60% signal strength. I hooked up the AM21, did the Initial Setup and...

    We're helping a family member get set up with DirecTV. They're probably getting a Genie, HR24 DVR (hopefully) and a Genie client. They would also like an AM21 OTA to go with either the Genie or the HR24 DVR. I'm not real familiar with the AM21 antenna and need some advice... (1) Can this be...
  17. DIRECTV HD DVR/Receiver Discussion
    My current setup consists of one HR34 & two HR24 HD DVRs for a total of 9 tuners. I am using the SWM LNB (ODU) integrated with the dish that supports 8 tuners. I have one of the HR24s configured in single tuner mode with no issues. My question is that if I add an AM21 to the HR24 in single tuner...

    Hello, I wanted to know if anyone knows if the directv AM21 tuner integrates with a D12 receiver? I want to integrate OTA channels into my program guide, but can not so far. So I heard about the tuner working, But wanted to make sure if it works with D12? Thanks!
