    HR20 With No HD???

    Thanks for your insight, knowledge, and general response. I have had a Mediacom-flavored Motorola 6412 in the past. That thing had more bugs than a bait store. We've since moved into the country, and satellite is the only TV option (I can hardly get off-air now thanks to a sizeable ridge between...

    HR20 With No HD???

    It wasn't until the third one the problem was figured out. By then the tech was going to be late for his next gig. So the first and third HR20 worked fine... the first in theory, of course. The techs get to wait too, while the thing boots, downloads, gets software, reboots, gets guide data...

    HR20 With No HD???

    Junk! I'm not impressed with D*'s HR20. Today a tech swapped the HR20 I got last week with a new one... twice. The first replacement didn't even boot. And the problem? A bad b-band converter. Why the hell would one bad converter on a dual-tuner box cause them both to not work? I may be too...

    HR20 With No HD???

    Yes I did. I've done a dozen resets and gotten "hits" from the CSR and the HD channels dissapear off the guide, or when they return, there's a number of other errors when tuning to them "not available in area, not purchased, etc.." I'm about to kick the thing back to the satellite and have...

    HR20 With No HD???

    Thanks. Yea, I got the 5 lnb dish already. And the other H20(?? not the DVR) HD receiver gets strong signals on all of 103(b)'s transponders. The CSR said it was a problem with the impending roll-out of new HD channels. But it makes no sense, hence the dude coming out to fiddle with it on...

    HR20 With No HD???

    So I got an HR20 yesterday, hooked it all up, called to activate, etc... None of the HD channels (except HD locals) show up. It says "not purchased." Yet I have a straight HD box where all is well. 103(b) shows no signal in the HR20, yet on the standard HD box, transponders are all in the...

    The TITANIUM™ Package

    As soon as they can guarantee no rain-fade, it might just be worth it! :cool:

    Monday Night Football HD Well...

    It happened near Minneapolis too. We also had severe weather in the neighborhood and, for some reason, the warning crawls don't paste well over HD, in that the local ABC affil switched to SD everytime a new warning popped. So not only did you have a crappy picture, but it was smaller yet due to...
