  1. DIRECTV Installation/MDU Discussion
    I have had Directv since it first came out. I am about to get the Genie upgrade and was wondering...will the hard wire install that Directv "professionally" installs work better than the wireless one that I can install? I received the wireless cinema kit (95w/tax) and called Directv to enable...

    Trying to clear out my Tivo before Directv comes for the install, and one of the shows I have on there is Terra Nova. I watched the first 2 episodes, but on the 3rd, stupid baseball made it start almost an hour late. Where/how can I watch the episode "What Remains" preferably in HD? I tried Fox...

  5. DIRECTV General Discussion
    Hi, Wanted to see if anyone could comment on the reliability of what I heard from the guy selling Directv at Sams club. Several days later I asked a 2nd guy at the Sams Club and heard this same story: Lansing will have HD Locals finally before the Superbowl. The rumor is that Comcast had an...

    I am a DISH network guy but daughter has Directv. She has a HR20-700(could be HR21 if that matters). It is a HDDVR with 2 tuners. She only has 1 TV hooked up to it now. We just bought her an HDTV for her bedroom. When we went to hook it up we discovered no cable was run into her bedroom(same...

    I am a new D* customer and I ordered service with the HR-34 (HMC) online Thursday. The D* Tech showed up this morning for the installation and informed me that they don't have the HR34. He said it would be 1-3 months until the Multiband Michigan branch (tech was based out of Multiband -...

  9. General DISH™ Discussion
    "Dish subscribers, be aware of the Fox/DirecTV dispute" That's why I'm here. I've been a DirecTV subscriber for years and have stayed with them, to a large extent, because I'm grandfathered in with a HR10-250 TIVO setup. This spitting contest with FOX has encouraged me to do some looking...
  10. DISH™ High Definition Discussion
    I'm dropping the 1 cent Cinemax deal that ends for me next month, are they going to charge me a $5 downgrade fee? Cost me 12 cents, or $5.12? :confused: If I drop more than 1 movie channel, do they charge for each, or just one $5 fee? Is it any cheaper to drop stuff on-line?
  11. DISH™ High Definition Discussion
    I just had a Direct TV installer tell me that Direct offers the only "True HD". Dish he claimed is manipulated at the receiver and not true HD. This discussion came about at a rental property that is wired with undersized coax by modern standards, he claimed it would not transmit / work with...

  14. General DISH™ Discussion
    For several reasons (mostly price) I'm considering switching from D* to E*. I only have one TV, it's an SD only 27" tube set, and on D* I'm using an aging R-10, which is the last of the SD Tivo units. So, I'm wondering if anyone who has made the change can tell me how the DVR's that E* is...
  15. General DISH™ Discussion
    Has anyone successfully configured their router to allow the DVR to access the internet? I have my DVR hard wired to my router and I have lights on both devices. I have rebooted both numerous times. The DVR does not allow you to type in any DNS or IP info. Any suggestions for the router...
