    HR-24 audio issue

    Thanks for the reply. I haven't tried it yet but, I suspect you're right. It always worked fine with my HR-22 but, I suspect that's more a function of it just being a slower receiver. Now that I know what the problem is, it's a simple workaround. Thanks again.

    Slow Hr-22-100 Piss poor CS

    Sluggish problems with my HR-22 as well. Not as bad as the OP though.

    HR-24 audio issue

    Thanks for the replies guys. It appears all 3 of you were right. I tried it tonight after being shutoff for about 8 hours. Reading Blueridges reply, it occured to me that the HR-24 was powering up before the TV. I have the remote set to IR and I use the ON button of the Directv remote to power...

    HR-24 audio issue

    I've had this HR-24 for I would guess a couple of months. For some reason, whenever it's been off for awhile (like say a few hours) when I turn it back on, there is no sound. The first couple of times it happened, I hit the reset button which eventually fixes it but, as you know, it takes awhile...

    new directv customer question

    I remember when I signed up they said there would be some kind of $25 hold charge or something. They said it should never show up. They supposedly credit it back after they verify your credit or something to that effect. At any rate, it didn't show up on mine so, you could be the same way...

    HR-24 tuner 2 quit working

    Thanks for the replies guys. I'll try to take them in order here. Chip, yes I tried the hard reboot. That was the first thing I tried. I tried it again today just to see if it would kick in. Still no luck. Jimbo, I did unplug the power inserter. DTV told me on the phone last night that I...

    HR-24 tuner 2 quit working

    I'm pretty sure I have this narrowed down to the receiver but, I figured I'd run it by you guys just in case. Here is the deal. For over a year, I've had my DTV installed with an HR-22. DTV installed it. SWM install. Worked fine. I just added an HR-24 I bought from an online supplier about a...

    Lightning strikes DVR questions (may need stonecold)

    I called them. I had to cancel a free 3 months of HD extra pack they gave me, that I don't watch. I did not ask about a replacement receiver, since I said for now I'll keep it and add an extra box. I wanted to add one anyway. She was telling me they had some deal on movie channels and I had a...

    Options to add a new receiver

    If you are willing to pay $199 for a new HR-24, another option might be to find yourself a 26 or, maybe even 32 inch LCD HDTV with a QAM tuner. Now you can get those extra channels you were talking about with no contract and, replace an SDTV with an upgraded HD model which will provide you...

    Lightning strikes DVR questions (may need stonecold)

    Thanks Sergei, they would cover it but, as DVDDAD goes on to say in his post, I have a $500 deductible. All it would do is apply to that in case something else happens this year. I was just really wanting to know what to expect when I called them about it. I think what I'm going to do, since I...

    Lightning strikes DVR questions (may need stonecold)

    Thanks RBTO. No, I had not seen that device. Looks pretty nice. Definitely something to think about. Real time recording isn't the end of the world. I could always walk away after I got it going if I didn't want to watch at the time. Thanks for providing that link. I appreciate it.

    Lightning strikes DVR questions (may need stonecold)

    hmm, no protection plan. I have Stanley Cup hockey games in this one that I wanted to keep. It sucks nobody has come up with software to get them to a PC. I have no interest in recording them in SD

    Lightning strikes DVR questions (may need stonecold)

    First, I've had DTV for about 16 months. When I signed up, I got just one receiver. An HR-22 HD DVR. The other night I'm watching it and it's storming. Suddenly there was a simultaneous lightning flash and, extremely loud thunder crack with a little "pop" and, out goes the tv. The TV...

    New HD channels coming!

    Never watched Seinfeld. I can't get into sitcoms. That fake crowd laughter drives me nuts.
