You sure can use it. During set up, set it for one line input only and you will be good to go. Enjoy.
Thanks... assuming I can go back to change it to 2 turners later... right?davring said:You sure can use it. During set up, set it for one line input only and you will be good to go. Enjoy.
Yes, you can. Just connect the second tuner and I would do an rbr. You'll also need to have a second BBC.dreamyip said:Thanks... assuming I can go back to change it to 2 turners later... right?
I thought the latest software allowed you to set it for one or two tuners, no longer a need to reboot.Michael D'Angelo;1726390 said:It will detect you only have one tuner during startup and set it up for that.
When you add the 2nd line you need to reboot the unit and it will detect the 2nd tuner on start up.
I am not sure. I have not played with it that much. I will have to check later.davring said:I thought the latest software allowed you to set it for one or two tuners, no longer a need to reboot.
Connect it to SAT 1.dreamyip said:One more question... Do I connect to Satellite one or Satellite two since I only will have one line at this time?
Yes your contract will just start over and you will have a new 2 year agreement.mishawaka said:i'm in the same boat, looking to upgrade an H20 to an HR20 or 21. looks like best buy has the best deal for the 21, but my question is, how does DTV handle the commitment on the H20 that i turn in? do they just start a new 2 year agreement on the HR20/21, and go from there?
Best Buy will have a access card.mishawaka said:if i buy one at best buy, will the unit have an access card, or is that something that i need to call DTV and get?
also checking the ebay auctions, and some have the access card, and some don't...
Good Luck!DirecTV3049 said:Lucky you.
I acquired a new HR21-100 from Best Buy ($169) this past Saturday with the intentions of moving an H20 and replacing an H10.
My HR21-100 is as useless as a brick. About 10 minutes after getting up and running, it started with the now infamous "remote/front panel" freeze-up. Pulled the power cord, waited 30 secs, and let the system re-boot from square 1. Same thing.
Pull the power cord again . . . . and THIS time the receiver gets "hung" on start-up at the screen that says "Step 1 of 2: Acquiring satellite settings . . . this may take a few minutes." In this case "minutes" turns into infinity. (yes, even pulled the cord AGAIN . . . and AGAIN).
I know it's GETTING a satellite feed (no cable issues) because the old H10 works (without local channels) on the same satellite lines.
I've put in a service call (I have the protection plan) . . . but they won't be here until Fri. 8/22!!!
1- RCA DRD420RE; 1- H20-600; 1- HR20-700;1- H10-200; 1 - HR21-100 (aka "The Brick").
