I'm a long time DTV subscriber with an HR44 Genie, Mini Geni, HR24, and THR22. My adult son lives with me and the HR24 & THR22 are his and aren't connected to my HR44.

My living room isn't my main TV so I've been feeding it with RF but I've decided I want HD there now. An HR24 (don't want another Mini) seems to fit the bill and from searching I can purchase it from Solid Signal or Weaknees.

On Solid Signal's website it first shows it has been discontinued but down the page it shows an HR24... is this the one I want? Are these new or refurbished? DIRECTV Receivers, Get Genie, 4K and More | Solid Signal

Do these come with an access card or do you have to call DTV to get one?

What are your thought about using an HDMI Range Extender/HDMI Splitter instead of an HR24 not taking into consideration you would gain two tuners? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08KGWXJSG/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza?th=1 How about Fiber Optic HDMI cables? Either method would be running a 50ft run.
I have 2 HR24s I bought that I would sell

Interesting, I called several times last year and they would not allow it🤷‍♂️ The par for the course with Customer Service. 😖
So what happens then? I have a flakey HR24 that I need to replace soon. First no DVR streaming on iPhone/iPad and now no replacement boxes? January can’t come fast enough when Sunday Ticket ends and I can cancel this antiquated system!

I just had my HR24 replaced. The phone people said they no longer manufacture or supply them. However, they told me to ask the installer/technician if they had any in their vehicle, and I lucked out. He had three of them, and one was brand-new.

They haven’t made them in almost a decade. Nothing is brand new

Let's agree not to confuse "brand new" (aka "new-in-box" or "new old stock") with "new to you" or "factory renewed".

I have a brand new in box HR44 sitting in a corner of my basement. It doesn’t do me any good, just haven’t had time to do something with it.
