    Directv Onetime Free HD-DVR Upgrade to Valued Customers

    I noticed recently this offer was up on their website. The offer was for existing customers to receive one HD DVR free of charge. Having two HR23-700's already but being interested in the HR34 I called to see if there were any better offers on the HR34. I had called roughly mid March and the...

    Cable Coxial Conversion for AV to RCA, Component or HDMI?

    Sincerely appreciate the technical info on the AM21 and how the OTA channels coincide with the Directv provided local channels with the seamless added functionality. I used the idea provided by medic-dan which for my objective and for mentioned guidelines made the most logical sense from all...

    Cable Coxial Conversion for AV to RCA, Component or HDMI?

    Thanks Bill does the AM21 allow any user input on when the locals are used? In other words when using the AM21 (meaning when it is linked to a receiver) can the user still get the locals from Directv's feed and only initiate OTA locals if the Directv feed is lost due to rain fade? I understand...

    Cable Coxial Conversion for AV to RCA, Component or HDMI?

    I just looked up pricing on the AM21. Roughly $60 and I didn't realize it's actually an add on stack-able component not just a small converter box. Considering my objective I likely will not be spending over $100/receiver for an AM21 & HDTV indoor antenna just for locals. My objective is for the...

    Cable Coxial Conversion for AV to RCA, Component or HDMI?

    LOL Yes, H25-500 you are correct. I'll be honest since turning 40 I have noticed a considerable difference in my nearsightedness and reading small print. Upon a second look H25-500 is what it says. I hope someone chimes in who is using an AM21. For the money I have no issue using one or a...

    Cable Coxial Conversion for AV to RCA, Component or HDMI?

    I am familiar with the AM21 but does not that converter essential only allow for OTA's rather than the locals from Directv and will that affect MRV? If so that is not exactly what I am attempting to accomplish. My main object is to only access OTA's when Directv has lost it's signal. I will...

    CE's for the weekend of 12.18

    No Vadar you got it correct. As I explained earlier I'm scheduled to be installed Saturday and I'll need a few more receivers. Just calculating my options for now. Before finding this forum I'd considered everything possible to network the receivers after learning I had be been most likely...

    Vadar thanks for the heads up. One question though does it appear MRV will eventually work on non DVR receivers in either or both the HD and SD format. Thanks again.

    CE's for the weekend of 12.18

    Hi all new to the forum. I know it's been a few weeks since the last post but this discussion is exactly what I have been looking for. My situation is simple. I recently ordered Directv but have not been installed yet. I am scheduled for this coming Saturday. Basically I got lied to being told...
