  1. DIRECTV HD DVR/Receiver Discussion
    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...

    Greetings, I am putting this info here as a courtesy, since I have searched extensively and haven't really found correct info pertaining to my situation. My installation as initially configured in 2013: HR44 base unit, 3 clients (one C31 mini, 2 Samsung RVU) The HR44 is hooked up via coax for...

    In my house I have my main Genie (HR44) this comes in from the switch through a power inserter. I imagine that this is connected to my wireless network since no ethernet is running to the receiver. This is located in my basement media room. Then I have a coax going into a DECABB1MRO-01...

    I have a new Samsung RVU tv which I have connected to my HR44 via Cat 6 ethernet. I can watch just fine, but the picture quality is very poor. It is not so much pixelated, but rather pasty or cartoonish on faces---lack of detail. I have a combination of both gigabit switch and standard 10/100...

  6. DIRECTV HD DVR/Receiver Discussion
    Hello everyone! I am new to this forum and I really love it so far. I have tried searching for a list of 2014 TVs that have RVU, but my search has been fruitless. I know it HAS to be on this website somewhere, but I haven't found it yet. I'm a current Directv customer in the market for a new TV...

    I'm trying to figure out if I should use RVU or just simply continue using receiver boxes like the HR44. Main Considerations: Speed - If RVU guide speed & DVR interaction is slower, I don't really want it. Quality - If RVU quality is worse, I don't really want it. Cost Setup: Main TV - Has RVU...

    **** UPDATED WITH FIXES**** So I purchased a new Samsung TV today and plugged in my Ethernet connection to the TV and immediately the HR44 RVU device showed up as a video source. I was hoping that was all I had to do. Boy was I disappointed. I'm not sure if these steps are all correct, but...
  9. DIRECTV Installation/MDU Discussion
    Hello everyone this is my first post. I moved to Michiagn @ 1.5 years ago and we are currently building our dream home. I've had the home "pre-wired" for a future home control system (i.e Sevant or Control4) . I was a Directv customer ever since the beginning (90's) I've not been on Directv...

    My conversation with a Samsung live chat support rep, which got me nowhere regarding how to get my remote (DirecTV RC71 or Samsung) to control the volume of my Denon AVR-5700 receiver when using the RVU ethernet Genie client connection. Oddly, the remotes work fine when the connection is via...
  11. DIRECTV HD DVR/Receiver Discussion
    Hello everyone... I just purchased a 75" Samsung 6300 series LED TV that supports RVU. At that location I currently have a C31, which (knock on wood) has been pretty stable for the last few months. Would you seasoned pros recommend trying the RVU instead of the C31, or just keep what I have...
  12. DIRECTV HD DVR/Receiver Discussion
    Has anyone tried using a Samsung world (or multi-system) TV as an RVU client? I'm considering a UA40F7500, which is listed as a 'smart' TV, but I'm new to the Samsung ecosystem, so not sure what, if any, the implications of that are. Yes, I know I can get a C41, but why would I want the extra...
  13. DIRECTV HD DVR/Receiver Discussion
    I need some help figuring out if I should upgrade a DVR to a Genie in my system as it is currently set up. I have an existing Whole Home system with four DVRs and two standard receivers (3 HR20s, 1 HR 24, two H24s). I am doing some remodeling and need to have a second DTV line brought into one...
  14. DIRECTV Connected Home
    I picked up a new Sony RVU Tv to connect up to my genie. While samsung has been the only compatable tv for some time, Sony now has some 2013 model. I plugged it up, updated my software and registered as a client. I was then prompted to call directv. So the Tech support superviser says that sony...
