    Why doesn’t a DTV subscription give you access to directv stream?

    What would be cool is if you have your receiver connected to the internet, the minute the system detected any kind of signal loss from rain & snow fade then it would automatically switch over to DirecTV Stream to continue recording or viewing

    Dead HR22 & Dying HR24

    I did use a T10 Torx Screwdriver as there was 4 screws holding the hard drive in place but they all came out with ease

    Dead HR22 & Dying HR24

    I swapped out the HDD in the HR24 and it couldn’t have been easier, the hardest part was getting the cover off without breaking the clips but beyond that it was very easy. I put in a 2TB Seagate Barracuda($63) and it fired right up and back to life. Now to try the 3TB in my HR44(once I watch...

    Dead HR22 & Dying HR24

    Thanks I’ll check it out, I have a 3TB Western Digital I’d like to put into my HR44 internally so I might look at that as well

    Dead HR22 & Dying HR24

    I already have an HR44 along with another working HR22 & H24 but I’d definitely like to add another genie to my account if possible

    Dead HR22 & Dying HR24

    I own both these units and they need new hard drives. Can I use any 2TB drives? I was thinking about WD Purple drives. Someone mentioned that the HR24 drive needs to be 2.5” but I'm not sure. I was also thinking about going external but I think the eSATA docking stations are hard to find now...

    99 and 103 footprint

    That’s like saying that Shaw & Bell aren’t “allowed” in the U.S. and yet there are many especially in ND where I am. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Is Anik F2 the only Shaw Satellite available in the US?

    So far Shaw & Bell are still going strong in ND, time will tell if they try to tweak the signal any further to limit it more Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    List of Bell Supported Reveivers?

    As far as I know they are still able to be activated, although the only receivers they sell now are the whole home PVR & Clients. I’d try calling again if the card is outdated tell them to send you a new one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    IP address for On Demand

    Actually the signal is just fine. Our DirecTV account is located at our main home in Minot N.D. and we have a receiver at our Canadian home in Regina S.K. and we can even get our locals with 75-83% signal strength and 88-98% signal strength on the other sats. But a VPN would be needed for on...

    I didn’t think SS would deal with Canadians? According to their website they won’t ship to Canada. I see a fair amount of Canadians in my local retailer picking up DirecTV equipment here in N.D. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Directv outage?

    I turned on the HR44 and saw a brief message about not loading guide data for over an hour but all appears well so I’m not sure what it’s about Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    211K EHD issue

    Thanks that’s good to know. Later on this week or weekend I’m going back over and we are going to go over the differences between the two and he can decide what he wants to do either get a new card or go with the Dish Duo Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    211K EHD issue

    Hi yes it is externally powered and the missing channels are gone with or without it on the receiver the two issues are probably not related I’d guess. The channels he’s missing are AXS,Boomerang, Bravo, Discovery and ESPN U. He was also missing CNBC but that one came back after Dish re hit the...
