    HR44-700 losing signal but not "searching for signal". HELP!

    Thanks for the tips on the CE update. I installed that update on Friday night, and haven't had this issue since. So it was definitely a software issue. Thanks guys :)

    HR44-700 losing signal but not "searching for signal". HELP!

    So this seems to be a software issue with the box? I would almost have to assume so, because when I reset, I get all the channels back just fine.... before it finally goes black again.

    HR44-700 losing signal but not "searching for signal". HELP!

    I still can't see it as an HDMI handshake issue since whenever this happens I can still play recorded HD content just fine.

    HR44-700 losing signal but not "searching for signal". HELP!

    I can't see it being an HDMI issue, considering that while there's no programming on the screen, the menus and everything work perfectly fine, and I can watch recorded shows. Just all the channels are black. This same behavior happens on the Genie boxes whenever this happens; I think I forgot...

    HR44-700 losing signal but not "searching for signal". HELP!

    Alright guys, this started happening earlier this week. Went to watch TV, and the screen was black. I could watch recorded shows and the menus and everything worked. There was no "searching for signal" message showing on the screen, so I went and did a signal test. The box got really...

    Is this a scam? Just got a shady email...

    Just got a shady email from what appeared to be DirecTV at first. The email was formatted just like DTV emails, same graphics and everything... But the subject they emailed about smelled fish, so I viewed the details... Here's the text of the email: After looking at the specifics, the...

    Can someone explain the way DirecTV's dvr recordings worK?

    You were right, Rad. After awhile, all the shows did show up. My wife is unhappy right now though! We're trying to figure some things out. She has a ton of timers set, and obviously sometimes they conflict. We figured out how to record one show instead of another (changing the conflict)...

    Can someone explain the way DirecTV's dvr recordings worK?

    I'll check later on, but it sounds like your second statement is correct! I'll double check tonight when I watch tv. I wasn't sure if it added right away, or took time to figure things out

    I was lucky that my area market is one that they're testing out the SWM stuff in :)

    Can someone explain the way DirecTV's dvr recordings worK?

    Can someone explain the way DirecTV's dvr recordings worK?

    I'm coming from dish network, where the dvr recording is very simple.... One of my biggest problems thus far with DirecTV is figuring out how the heck the series recordings work on this thing... I have an HR-21 I'm using. I set up a couple series recordings yesterday for some shows on...

    Just had DirecTV installed....

    That's the problem. If more people would post about their positive experiences, less people would be afraid of switching.

    Just had DirecTV installed....

    ......And I must say I was impressed with the installer. After lurking around the D* forum, and reading the numerous complaints about crappy installs and stuff, I was scared that I'd have a similar experience. My alotted 4 hour block was 8am-12pm. The guy showed up at 9am, and apologized...

    Installation questions..

    I think you confused me with the other guy. My house is a simple 1 story ranch home with slab foundation. The walls where the boxes will be in my house already have large 1"+ holes in the studs where I previously ran some wires :)

    Installation questions..

    How likely is it that being in the fort worth area, that the installation company will use the SWM? I need to call and verify my discounts, so I suppose I can get the number for the company coming out and ask them? Will they give that info?

    Installation questions..

    A couple more questions.. When the DTV installer comes, will he fish the new wire down the wall, or will he want to drill holes on the outside of the house?

    Installation questions..

    Thank you JD... Will that SW68 cost me any extra money? The CSR didn't mention it when I placed the order. Is the SWM in wide-use yet? I'm in the DFW, TX area if that makes any difference. Would the SWM cost any extra $?
