    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.

    So as I was catching up on my neglected Reddit newsfeed I came across an interesting thread from r/MoviesAnywhere about AT&T/DirecTV currently testing Movies Anywhere integration.

    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...
  9. DIRECTV General Discussion
    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...

  11. DIRECTV HD DVR/Receiver Discussion
    I am working on a problem for a friend on an HR20-700 (I know it's old). It's a swm3 single receiver Everything works great except on the Red Zone 703. It pixelates without any error, no 771 etc. No problems on any other regular channels or game mix, NFL etc. I have looked at the TPN map to...
  12. DIRECTV General Discussion
    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. Ok, the thing is that yesterday I cleaned my room and connected my...
  15. DIRECTV Installation/MDU Discussion
    There is a (unfortunately old) DirecTV RCA DRD420RE receiver and I am wondering if there is any support available for that model. By that I mean questions such as, would one be able to connect it to an older or newer satellite dish and receive coverage? Would DirecTV support subscriptions? Would...

    Hello, I was looking at switching my hotel property from cable to directv because some of the channels have poor picture quality and I was told directv would offer a superior picture. Here is my question before I make the switch: Our current cable provider offers the local ABC, NBC, CBS,& FOX...
  17. General DISH™ Discussion
    Ok, so this is my first experiences with Dish after a few days of use after install. First thing is I will say why I left DirecTV again was because of the horrible software that is in the Genie 2 with a ton of glitches that never seem to get resolved. Plus I suffered from the random pixelation...
  18. General DISH™ Discussion
    Had DISH about 14 years ago but switched to DirecTV... Now I thinking of coming back. Trouble is, the thing that drove me from DISH was sports blackouts (specifically NHL games). DISH always pointed the finger at blackout rules, but DirecTV always showed the games. I live in upstate NY, south...
