We are about to get a tv for a spare bedroom and want to wall mount it. If I order a HD receiver from D*, am I likely to get an H25? I understand these are nice and small and can be mounted behind the tv using rf for the remote. Are the other receivers also rf compliant?
Second question: for WHDVR, is a DECA required for the Hx? (I know that the dvrs need them as I have them on my three HRx dvrs.)
Thanks for any advice/suggestions.

If you order an HD receiver from DirecTV you get whatever is next in the pile. There is no guarantee.

If you want an H25 your best bet is to order one from solidsignal.com.

If you want that specific model HD receiver solid signal will be the route to go.
Also the wall mount and RF adapter kit have to be ordered separately which ever route you go
Decas are only required for the H21 & H23 model HD receivers, H25 has it built in, so you wont require one externally.

I'm well aware that there is no guarantee as to which version you will get. My concern was whether the other models supported rf and whether DECAs are needed. You've answered my concerns.
Can you tell me how much the rf adapter kits cost?
Thanks,
Rick

You could also go the H24 route. Still no external Deca needed and then all you need is a RF remote. Having said that I use the H25 in my kitchen because of it's size and the family loves that receiver, it's very fast.

That may well be a solution. I could keep an H24 down low out of sight near the wall plate and then run the coax up to the tv, which I would have to do anyway.
Thanks for the idea.

I mount receivers (h24 or h25's) behind tvs all the time, no rf needed or to point the remote a certain direction, right at the tv always works, esp if mounted like the above photo with the sensor straight out, i usually mount mine pointing up. The new remotes seem to be way stronger with the IR signal than the older ones.

Since I don't have electrical and coax outlets on the wall high enough to "hide" the cords, I might as well just run the coax up the wall as well. I think I will probably get a cable cover to make it a little less ugly.
