    HR54 ethernet port

    the company i worked for paid us to install deca's at the same rate as a whole new receiver, and only $5 for wireless. so if the coax was going by the router, why not make some more money for a better connection anyway. i was never a fan on directly connecting a receiver to the router because if...

    Duplex Dish Question

    just in case anyone else sees this in the future, its B-Band converter you dont want. not a b-band filter. only bring it up because thats what it says on the sticker.

    AT&T Service Question

    well look at it this way. go with the AT&T boxs for now. they're Uverse stuff is only 1yr contract right? if you still dont like it after a year, switch back to D*, and you can probably get em to throw some discounts in again. win/win

    HS17-100 (For those wondering)

    that is 100% no-no. D* doesnt allow genie in commercial locations. so far as i know that included H44.

    Upgrade to 4K Question

    I'm curious to know if you got your C61K to work with your AVR? because the HD stuff will play just fine, but there are ALOT of AVR's that were advertised 4k ready but did NOT work with the C61K. the easy way to test this is to unplug the coax cable from the client and it will say right under...

    What are my options?

    as an update to maestro, you may get an HR54 depending on what your tech has on his truck and what the oldest "server" he has is. there is a miniscule chance of a 34, but a 44 or 54 is probably 95% chance. also, when upgrading to the genie system from a HDDVR there is generally a $3-$5 increase...

    With a Gene HD-DVR, can you do this?

    while you already have a satsifactory answer, for those who may be less prepared to start something like that this scenario does still work. after you have started the recording, if you go into your recording list and start the program from there INSTEAD of the live feed, if you double tap exit...

    Self Managed MDU?

    maybe some Polaroids in an envelope with the address attached to DTV's front door would get some action lol.

    Sonic tap music on satellite 119

    RC73B BackLit Remote?

    unless the reviews are saying the satpro is not sending hardware or sending broken hardware, remotes are a pretty safe bet. programming them OTOH, can be an adventure :).

    Issue with DTV

    the reason pulling the plug on a computer is bad is because there are files in RAM that have yet to be written to the HDD or SSD. if any of those are system files you can corrupt your OS. these are singularly purposed machines where the only real danger is to a currently recording program. the...
