    HDCP issue on Premium Channels

    So yesterday, to my delight, i get a call from Directv offering all the movie channels free for 3 months. I of course accepted and happily went home from work to set the DVR and browse the new on demand content at my finger tips. To my dismay, every time i tried to watch something, i would get...

    Media share on networked drive?

    I have a genie that is connected to the internet. I have used and vuze to stream videos on the genie before, but since the computer I have those programs on is connected to my network wirelessly, the dependability of the stream is not very good (lots of freezing of the video). I had...

    PS3 as RVU client

    As many of you may have seen, there was a quick blurb in Engadget's CES review of Directv's new products about the coming ability to use a PS3 as a RVU client with the HR34 (and coming HR44)... Is there any news about when this may be available to customers and how it will work? Thanks!

    HMC Set-up with External HD

    Also... so say I start out using the internal one and a couple months down the road, realize that its not enough space and i'd rather add a 2 TB external... I assume there is no way to transfer my recordings to an external HD? And if not, is it fairly simple to just disconnect and reconnect the...

    HMC Set-up with External HD

    If you go to DirecTV's website and go to "technology" and then "receivers", the 5 tuner box is still referred to as the "HMC HD DVR".

    HMC Set-up with External HD

    I am currently a Dish customer that had my 922 crap out on me this week. The only thing keeping me from switching to DirecTV and the new HMC was the almost 2 TB worth of shows i had saved on my 922 and external HD... Since i lost half of that (and the most current recordings at that) with the...

    Tell me why I should wait on the XIP receiver system?

    I am pretty sure you can. My sister in law has Directv with the whole home system and I am pretty sure she can pause and rewind any TV in the house.

    Tell me why I should wait on the XIP receiver system?

    Thanks for the input guys! I think I will probably at least wait until CES, just to see what Dish is planning to bring to the table... but i also agree that it will most likely come with the "coming soon" tag, which will be by no means reliable... though I agree, that you have to figure Dish...

    Tell me why I should wait on the XIP receiver system?

    I have been a Dish customer for a little over 5 years... for the most part, I have really been pleased with programming, price, service, and equipment. I started with a 622 and upgraded to a 922 not long after it came out. The family is growing, which also means that 2 tuners on a DVR is...

    Temporarily Add extra 722

    Ok that makes more sense... I was over at my fathers house yesterday and there is definitely just one line coming from the LNB... that line runs to his basement where there is one of these ground blocks or switches. The installer did that i guess because the house was prewired for cable with...

    Temporarily Add extra 722

    @TheKrell- He has the same programming package I do (in fact he may have the one above me, so that should be fine). And I dont want to permanently have the box in my house.. I just want it for this weekend for the games. @CJPC- What you said is what i figured... I know technically I am not...

    Temporarily Add extra 722

    I am having a big March Madness party this weekend to watch all the games with some friends. Now that the games are spread out over CBS and the Turner stations, there will be as many as 4 games on at the same time. I currently just have 1 922, so I only have 2 tuners and OTA. My father...

    Looing to buy a 922 and have a few questions?

    Hawker152 is right... You can use TV2, but you have to be "slinging" on a computer or iphone or something. When you are slinging, the box is put in dual mode like a 622 or 722... as soon as you stop slinging to a device, it puts the box back into single mode (and if you try to push the mode...

    Software Update Release Notes 10/19/10

    What exactly does "WiFi" mean for the 922? Also noticed that the 722 got Sling adapter support... What about Sling extender support for the 922?

    Potential new customer wanting two HD DVRs

    I got a flyer that had the Free DVR and Free HD receiver (or a second DVR for $99) deal good through February 2011 so i doubt that deal will go away... I think the Free service for 5 months if you get the NFL Sunday Ticket deal ends tomorrow. I have been keeping my eyes on it as i am fed up...

    Unhappy Dish Customer!

    Hey guys... thought some of you D* fans would like this and perhaps find this humorous! I was having a party to watch the Georgia vs. Colorado game this weekend. Well that game happened to be on our local FSN network that is locked out because Fox is greedy and Dish is cheap! Anyways, I...

    At least back then if you couldn't get the Braves game, it was as simple as you needing a better antenna... now its because some greedy business executives are sitting around sipping on their Starbucks latte while we lose the ability to watch games!
