    I am going to attempt to hookup this system in my RV. I have a AGPtek signal meter finder as well. Its my understanding that the dish needs 18v power to find the satellite. Do I need a power inserter? The H25 only has a sat in port so there is no voltage coming out.

    So my boss decided to upgrade his DirecTV equipment. He had been using an old D12 receiver, with a round dish (18 x 20), and was only getting SD video. When he called to upgrade, the rep told him they'd send him an HR54 (with DVR) and that it would work with his old dish. I had told him...

    hr44 with 3 clients and an h25 - the playlist would show up on the h25 but would have the red circle not allowing playback because it said the genie was sharing to too many receivers already even though there were no recordings playing at all. How do I troubleshoot that to determine what the...
