  1. DIRECTV General Discussion
    What happens when I add 2 HR24s and an Hr44 (9 tuners) to a SWM8? Does it just not work? Or does it depend on which power up first? Suppose I power up the HR44 first, then the HR24s. Would I get 5 tuners on the HR44, two on the first HR24, and one on the second HR24? Jack
  2. DIRECTV Installation/MDU Discussion
    My mom is coming to visit with us for a week or so, and I'd like to move an H21 from the laundry room to the guest bedroom. I have a SWM-16 set up, all Hxes have DECA. There is only one other Hx (HR20-700) on the top floor of my house, where the guest room is. Would it be technically feasible...
  3. General Satellite Discussion
    A question out of pure curiosity. Performed a DISH service call the other day. Customer had a 722k. The TV2 picture quality was very poor. In checking the cabling in the attic, I found that the installer had used a DTV 2-way SWM splitter in place of the usual Holland or other brand Diplexer. I...

    (New to Forum and not an expert, so thanks in advance for the sharing) I'm using the Directv 8 Channel SWM (Zinwell SWM8-Z Swim and a 29v PI) with my 5 LNB Slimline to 2 HR24 recievers colocated in my whole house equipment closet. I use AV distribution to 5 zones. I initally used the SWM-8...

    http://finance.yahoo.com/news/DIRECTV-Surpasses-Cable-and-bw-3378249423.html?x=0&.v=1 Sometimes good to take a step back, realize there are 19 million + US customers with a complicated product in a complicated business. We aren't perfect, but there are thousands of men and women that sure try...
  6. DIRECTV Connected Home
    I just got my DVR connected to the network and can successfully stream music from my PC to the DVR (HR-21). Unfortunately, the on-screen interface is, at best, clunky and almost unusable. What I like about it is its ability to stream music through my home theater system. I currently use an iPad...

    Have you noticed that the latest TVMail mentions all NCAA Games are going to be in HD. The listed network are CBS, TNT, TBS and TruTV. When did TruTV go HD? I don't see it. I hate it when marketing, program department tell fibs.

    I was attempting to start a thread in another forum but was denied. Have I not been a member long enough to start actual threads?
  9. DIRECTV Installation/MDU Discussion
    If I have one HD DVR and two regular HD receivers, how does it work? If I record 2 programs, can you still watch live TV on the other 2 receivers? I guess I can not watch live TV on the DVR recording two shows at once like normal?
  10. DIRECTV General Discussion
    How do I setup this, and how do I setup that, are questions all over these forums concerning the APPS problem. Is it a Directv setup problem, a network problem, router problem, etc. How about creating an application that you can run on your personal computer to test the internet, router, and...

    So, I finally got my reward. Three months of Sports Pak for free. All the sports I watch are in region. I have no use for this at all, but calls and emails to exchange this for something I might actually watch were denied. After the first thirty days (to avoid an early termination charge...

    Howdy, I have an HR20 and a DTivo SD, both connected to the same 5LNB dish. This morning we had a good thunderstorm blow through. Following the storm, the DTivo standard def works fine, the HR20 however had a message stating something like "no signal for the past 4 hours", which would have...
