Sorry for the double post but the thread in the Misc Equipment section was very old and I wasn't sure if my post would reach anyone.


I recently purchased a WHDI setup to get me access to DirecTV in my home office where it is just too impractical to run an HDMI cable.

This is the unit I purchased.


This works very well with my HR21-700's EXCEPT, any broadcast channel that DirecTV rebroadcasts will not "lock-in". It's almost as though there is something "incorrect" in the HDCP protocol for those stations that prohibit the device from retransmitting. I've read reviews that others have seen the same thing.

Hopefully, if this is the case, we can get some help from DirecTV in the form of a firmware update.... Anyone else using these types of WHDI devices and having any issues?
