    This past Saturday, I had an HS17 installed with only 2 C61 Mini’s that are wired. About 2 hours after the installation was completed, I got a message on my TV screen “Updating Software”. Then when the HS17 was rebooting, I have not been able to watch DTV since. The mini’s have given me...
  2. DIRECTV General Discussion
    I had Directv installed at my house a week ago. I have the HS17, 1 wireless mini and 2 C61K boxes in my setup. I have an audio popping noise issue on both of the 61K clients. If you do the 30 second skip it pops when video resumes, changing channels will produce a popping sound sometimes...

    I am having Directv installed tomorrow and want to get some feedback on the equipment and reliability of it. The setup will be the HS 17, 2 c61 4K clients and one wireless mini client. I have researched the HS 17 and there seems to be a lot of mixed reviews and the same with 4K clients. I am...

    Well, I had to get rid of the HR54-500, my question is now that I have the new HS17 where is the HDD in the tower or the mini genie they give you? Also, I made them replace all of the minis in the house. I was getting such bizarre messages it was crazy with the HR54-500! I was so aggravated...

    CBS just pulled their channels in Philly and other major markets. Is the Locast app available on the HS-17? I can't see it on mine.

    Does anyone have any real-world experience on using different Western Digital HDs as external drives? Specifically is there any real pros or cons to using either the WD purple vs the WD Red Pro? Both are 8TB drives, SATA III 6 Gb/s, spinning at 7200rpm with 256MB Cache, 5 year warranties and...

    Current configuration HR44, HR23, C41 and wireless bridge. Lost whole home on the HR44 being able to view the HR23's shows with the new GUI and have since purchased a new 4K TV. If I upgrade to the HS17 and replace my HR23 with a client, will the C41 wireless client work with the HS17? If...

    Hey all. So today had a tech out and he installed a Genie 2 and the 4k mini. I have a TCL 4K TV. I got the message "This TV supports 4k" at startup. Anyways when my tech left he showed me the 3 4k channels. I thought "cool, I'll watch now". As he's leaving he tells me "Those channels will...

    In the last week, I've noticed two flashing red lights on the front of the HS17. This apparently indicates a failed software download and according to the manual, if it doesn't stop (no given time frame) reboot the server. Why would a software download happen at 8:30 PM? While watching tv...

    Hello, I currently have an HR44-200. I was on the phone the other day with DirecTV and they offered up a free HS17. Does it require a new dish? Thanks

    My HS17 (Genie 2) has been installed for just shy of 2 weeks. In CT we have a company DTV subs to do their installs (for whatever it's worth). You never know who is going to show up but I can tell you the all do not have the same amount of training and definitely do not have the same work...

    My Genie 44 can have up to 100 scheduled shows at one time. How many can the hs17 have?

    Has anyone successfully activated and used an RVU with the HS17? I spent several hours on today with various levels of DTV support trying to activate my 2017 Sony (XBR65A1E for anyone who is curious). I previously had my HR44 connected via my gigabit ethernet and the TV also connected via...
