    IR/RF question

    I recently got an H25 receiver off eBay from a seller with 100%, or near 100% feedback. This particular seller explicitly stated it was an "owned" unit, and not a "leased" unit, also provided the serial number online, and allowed returns. Anyhow, that H25 came with an "older" square style...

    Want to reserve a tuner for a persistent channel

    Thanks for the confirmation on the H25 not needing to reboot or otherwise interrupt the video feed for schedule updates. I captured some stuff late last night as another test, it looked good and without interruptions today. I'll post back with any further updates. Thanks again to all

    Want to reserve a tuner for a persistent channel

    Well it is a few days in and the H25 receiver seems to be staying on so far. No idea if it is still going down in the middle of the night or not. If it is, then it is also able to recover on its own. I will eventually find out. It did have an interruption at least once on the first night...

    How do you like DirecTV?

    Did Dish ditch their HD-lite format or something?

    Want to reserve a tuner for a persistent channel

    P.S. A couple times I very briefly see an "error 771" message during "receiving satellite info" stage of startup. In particular right around where it says "20%". This doesn't seem to happen during normal operation though. So I am willing to discount this as a recurring glitch during the...

    Want to reserve a tuner for a persistent channel

    I just wanted to update this a bit. The H25 came in and I was able to get it activated just fine. Directv tech support under AT&T worked out very well for me. I tested the H25 and had a question. Since this is an "owned" unit, I may end up selling and getting an HR24, depending on what...

    Want to reserve a tuner for a persistent channel

    So should I wait for a while? I don't know how "dealers" might have anything to do with it. All I need to do here that is "different" is get an "owned" box off of eBay - confirmed to be "owned" through Directv's people (I would take care of all the activation work with them myself). Well I...

    Want to reserve a tuner for a persistent channel

    Well I haven't gotten around to ordering yet. Any tell-tale way to know if my account number has been converted to AT&T?

    Want to reserve a tuner for a persistent channel

    Sounds great! For that price I am willing to give it a try. Best part is I will still have my Genie HR44 to fall back on, so it can't really get any worse. Thanks!

    Want to reserve a tuner for a persistent channel

    Okay. Thanks for that. A receiver-only unit would be fine for my application. That would explain the price break. As long as it stays on, and stays tuned to a certain channel, I couldn't care less. A DVR's recording capabilities would basically go unused. Just something that reliably...

    Want to reserve a tuner for a persistent channel

    I looked around a bit and it looks as if I can just purchase an HR25 off eBay for less than $100. Then someone else with similar needs was told it would be ok to get one, as long as the unit was first cleared by Directv, to be an "Owned" unit (rather than a "Leased" unit). This conversation...

    Turning on/off ONLY the TV with the RC73 remote

    Though a desirable outcome in your case, it's probably not an intended feature. Therefore it possibly may not work the same on your next TV. Your mileage may vary.

    Want to reserve a tuner for a persistent channel

    That's right... I'll have an open connector there. Were you saying that $7 a month is just for service charge, or is that to rent one? I don't have my bills handy at the moment.

    Want to reserve a tuner for a persistent channel

    Ok, so far so good I think. Behind the Genie HR44 there is a lime green MSPLIT4r1 splitter, and one unused connector with a terminating resistor screwed on. Would that work if I used that?

    Want to reserve a tuner for a persistent channel

    Okay, so if I were to get one of these things, an SWM-compatible residential unit, would there be an associated extra charge to add it to my service? I would drop a Genie Mini. directv h25 | eBay

    Want to reserve a tuner for a persistent channel

    I have an HR44 whole house DVR, and want to keep a specific channel on in one of the rooms. Problem is, when the channels are recorded or changed from other rooms, this room eventually gets kicked off and just the $&#*$ Directv logo shows. Any new software tricks to reserve a tuner for a unit...

    Turning on/off ONLY the TV with the RC73 remote

    I have inadvertently found that happens on mine if I just push the "on" button on the remote. The TV goes on and off, but the Genie Mini stays on.

    Video and sound drop

    Hmm. Maybe something further out then, but in the line of sight.
