  1. DIRECTV HD DVR/Receiver Discussion
    Well the rumor of the HR24-100 model retirement because of its fan issue is no longer true. As my HR24-100 with a defective fan was just replace with another HR24-100. But they don't want the defective HR24-100 back. I even had to convince 'em to send out an envelope for the access card.

    Hey everyone! This is my first time posting here and hope someone can help. I have a broken HR24-100 Directv let me keep (was deemed unfixabel by tech support and replaced with an HR24-200). I want to build a media player that uses the touch panel but have hit a wall. There is an ic labeled...

    I currently have a HR20-700 which is getting a bit long in the tooth (frequent sound skips, and occasional video jumps) Anyway, going online, I see the HR24-500 is now out, with decent reviews. I went to the nearest Worst Buy, errrr, I meant Best Buy, to check the unit out. :) Much to my...
  7. DIRECTV HD DVR/Receiver Discussion
    I'm going to hook my receivers up to my router and use on demand. I was thinking I'd just get a router and run some ethernet wires to my receivers but now I see these kits on the DirecTV website. It doesn't really say what you get though? It shows a plugin for a wall outlet? What would that be...
