    My Genie 2 server died today after maybe a year in operation. Is there a way to have the Genie 2 back up shows to an external hard drive just in case this ever happens again?

    There are a number of subscribers reporting that the Wally single tuner receiver connected to a HD and DVR account are able to record 2 SATELLITE channels simultaneously. I know it can do an OTA channel and a satellite channel but these folks are saying that it is now "magically" able to record...
  3. DIRECTV Tips and Resources
    I've spent the past 30 minutes reading threads here and I just want to double check my conclusions: If I wanted to add capacity to my DirecTivo, I could follow a process to copy programs from my old HD to a new one, either internally or externally Since my DirecTivo has died, and DirecTV is...

    Folks, I have a problem that may be odd. One of the 5 tuners in my HR44/500 receiver is apparently dead. When I go into the menu item which lets me test the tuners, 4 of the 5 show excellent signal strength; one shows none. It's #3, at the moment; but they seem to be automatically renumbered if...

    Okay so I'm hoping to find out, once and for all, as of this very day in June 2016, what the hell is holding down record and down-arrow on the faceplate during startup supposed to officially and truly do? Here's my experiment just today: With an HR21-700 with no internal drive connected and an...

    Just switched from DTV to Dish (mainly because of the Pac 12 thing). I now need to know how to transfer all of the programs that have been recorded onto my DTV DVR onto the external hard drive that I purchased from the Dish guy. When I connect the DTV receiver to the TV using an HDMI cable...

    HR44 keeps on freezing and then resetting. Storage error on blue screen. I spoke with tech support and I was told that receiver will need to be replaced due to bad hard drive but no guarantees that I will get an HR44. I asked if I can just connect an external hard drive to bypass the internal...

    Listed following System Test, under Settings. Internal storage device error - says it could be an initialization only or critical fault. Resetting HR does not clear it and unit takes forever to boot back up, but eventually does and can still access recordings, etc. for now. Unit does freeze up...

    Greetings, up graded to a Genie from a HR24 I think, and I used a Seagate 1500Gbytes external drive for storage. Don't need it anymore the 1TB on Genie is enough for now. The QUESTION, has anybody had success using those drives on a PC for Back-ups? Really do not want to throw it out. Thank...

    Hey guys So I am tired of having to keep recovering my files from my computer drives. A little history I Started using Windows PC many many years ago. I have never owned a Windows PC that lasted me more than 3 years. The OS will always crash at some point or another. I will then buy...

    I've got a slimline-3 on my roof co-located with a powered multi-switch, and four lines run down the side of my house and then enter the basement (the other 2 lines drop right through the ridgevent in my attic to get to the upstairs). Anyway, on my HR-20 and HR-21 I started receiving a guide...

    Recently I've been noticing political banner ads. Most notably the SupportSarahPac one. Two things wrong with this banner ad: 1) It's a political ad (more or less against the forums no politics talk), 2) She's sort of dropping out of politics. See pic.
