  3. DIRECTV HD DVR/Receiver Discussion
    Hello everyone. I have been experiencing random audio dropouts and/or pixelation on all of my local channels (ABC 16, CBS 22, NBC 28, etc.) National channels like ESPN are not affected. I know it is not a bad signal or bad weather as my local channels broadcast on 103S tpn#19 which almost always...

    Some SD DirecTV channels are in 16:9 format, especially QVC2 and ESPNews SD. I believe TNT SD, truTV SD, and TBS SD are in 16:9 format as well. By the way, I do not use any SD equipment (and haven’t been since 2016.) This is on an HD Genie with “show all channels” selected in the guide settings.

    Hi All, I have a few questions which I've had trouble finding answers for. I don't know much about the specifics of a DIRECTV system's operation, so any links to a decent overview would be nice. Unnecessary Background Information: I have an SDR that can handle the IF output from the DIRECTV...

    Does anyone know why the 4k football game broadcasts are always so dark? Every game I've seen on the 4k channels the picture is much darker than the regular HD channel. Now it's the ASU-USC game - it's nice and bright on Fox, but it looks like a night game on 106.

    Looking for guidance on what DirecTV content has Dolby Atmos sound. I have all the required 4k equipment, but the 4k channel is showing up as Dolby Digital Plus on my Yamaha AVR. I can get Atmos via Nvidia Shield on Netflix, but stumped on the DirecTV front. Guide data shows 4k and HDR, but...

    I just checked the AT&T article where they post the yearly price updates and they have updated the page for 2020. I'm guessing bill notifications will go out soon. The RSN Fee Tool has not been updated with the new prices yet so its not worth calling customer care until bill notices or the RSN...

    Getting the dreaded 771 error... but only on SOME channels. It started with 312HD (Hallmark)... we've noticed it on 290HD (Disney)... and the ultimate sin now... ESPNHD (206HD). Reverting to their SD counterparts seems to be fine. I have two boxes... HR44 and HR24. Problem is consistently...

    My system uses 7 tuners- D12 x4, H25 x3, and while some are far away it's been stable for years using the SL5S LNB (5 LNB, 8 tuner). I need to add 3 more. I switched out the LNB to the 3D2RBLNB for up to 13 tuners and everything's messed up now. I even get a signal lock on my meter (even...

    Hi everyone, I'm new on this forum. And, um, first of all let me apologize if I might sound desperate with what I'm about to tell but, I already searched over the internet (even some old threads on this forum) and have no luck.
