    Anyone use Caavo?

    I'm just about ready to get this cord cut. Just a few more "must watch" recorded things we have to get watched before we cut them off. The one big thing that was in my mind was having to use multiple devices to gain access to everything we plan to use. A TiVo for locals, Amazon Fire TV for much...

    Long Time DTV Sub wishing to cut the cord

    I've been researching options on and off for a while now and I am still interested in seeing if we can make the break. I've most recently pulled my Roku stick out of mothballs and have been looking at the different "apps" on it. My wife likes quite a few of the Alaska nature shows and some of...

    Standard or HD?

    I've been out of FTA for several years. Last time I was able to spend serious time in FTA was in 123 had all the active transponders with all the old TV shows. I no longer have a motor but I do have a 31" dish and an SD receiver. I would probably stick with 97 and not move from there for now...

    Not exactly home theater...video screen question

    I'm curious about something. Consider our local news station. For news stories, the weather report, and various other stories, it does not play on a green/blue screen in an imaginary window. It displays on this 3x3 grid of video screens. It is a large 3x3 square, all video screens are edge to...

    Where does guide data come from?

    My wife is a lover of Life Below Zero. It seems the listings are all wonky and I'm curious where DTV gets their data from. I looked at TV Guide and they have the same data so I'm wondering where they problem might be coming from. According to IMDB: S11 E01 · Changing of the Guard S11 E02 · End...

    No signal Tuner 2 HR23 700

    I have a currently working installation where I've been using 2 of my 3 receivers. This is a SWM system with a single wire coming from the dish to a 4-way splitter. The power port goes first to a power inserter then to our 1st receiver. The 2nd port to the 2nd and now the 3rd to the 3rd...

    Repeating "bong" sound

    I have been having a relatively new issue lately with our Genie HR34-700 unit. This "bong" sound comes especially when deleting shows after watching them when "confirming" the deletion. I have tried to make certain that extra presses of the remote are not happening but this "bong" will happen...

    Genie Issues - Hard Drive Test?

    My Genie seems to be giving me some issues. I've had about 3 different shows just not play when we've tried to watch them. It appears as if the entire episode was recorded, it will actually start and then freeze. It either happens right at the beginning of the episode or it might play for some...

    New House SL3 SWM Dish - Genie 775

    Hello, I am finally getting around to running some of the other lines I need for my home. I have my HR24-500 hooked up with the power inserter on the 4 way splitter on leg 1 and it automatically detected the new dish setup. I had originally had my HR23-700 in the same position but we had more...

    Moving to new home - installation questions - existing dish

    We are moving to a new home and there is an existing dish present with a very similar looking LNB to what I currently have where I am. The new home is about 3 miles from the present home. Where I am currently, there are 4 cables coming down from the dish into a big switch split into 2 4 way...

    Can you tell what these dishes are pointing at?

    They are on the rooftop of my local KDNL ABC broadcaster. But there are so many of them. Are some of them uplink dishes? Thanks in advance.

    SWM multiswitch question

    I'm going to be moving soon. There is a dish at my new house and as far as I can tell there is a single wire coming down from the dish into a directv 4 way splitter. In a closet there is a SWiM power inserter that I assume was connected to the power passing port on the 4-way. Where I am...

    How much is left?

    I first got into FTA probably around 2008 give or take. My first experience was with a motor and it was so exciting to swing from bird to bird and scan for all sorts of feeds. 123-W was full of channels and you could spend forever just there. A recent look at Lyngsat looks so bare. It...

    Cycle date change and failed auto-pay?

    It seems like DirecTv/AT&T did a cycle date change on my account for the 5/1 billing date, billing period 03/30/17 to 04/30/17. They did not process my auto-pay so now I have a double bill due. I also have several partial month charges: Partial Month Charges/Credits 1. Advanced Receiver...

    Your tv does not support this program's content protection...

    I wake up this morning to this message on my screen. This message has often popped up very briefly as I turn on my system in the morning but it usually goes away before I can even read it. Today it will not go away. I tried a red button reset and it is still there. I've had this receiver...

    Recordings are always 2 minutes off

    I'm wondering if this is a KTVI Fox 2 station issue alone and not a DIRECTV specific issue, but I thought I'd ask here and get feedback. We record Hot Bench and Judge Judy in the afternoon's and the first part of the cases for 3:00, 3:30, 4:00, & 4:30 are always out of sync. I.E. the first...

    Tivo Roamio or Tivo Roamio OTA

    Hello, Trying to finalize our decision to cut DirecTv and decide between these two units. I've discovered that an indoor antenna works well for all of my channels. I've been able to watch trouble here. I'm having trouble trying to figure out just what the difference between these 2 units is...

    Antenna in attic.....OTARD no help....HOA

    For the time being, and certainly longer that I would like, we are going to be stuck in this HOA. I've looked into OTARD and according to those rules, a HOA can mandate attic installation of TV antennas which is exactly what I'm dealing with here. Not having the equipment to test, if I go to...

    HR24-100 possibly died?

    I went downstairs this evening to find an error on my TV screen saying "Cool Down" The temperature was if I remember 64? The message said it needs to be 50 or less to boot. The top didn't feel hot, just barely warm. (I know the hard drive or other internals might be much warmer.) So, I...

    Is it normal for unsubbed channels to appear white in the guide?

    I've called DTV about this a couple of times without resolution. There are random channels that appear in bright white, like the ones that I am subscribed to, in various places in the guide, even up in the 500's like 509, 512, 527...etc. I'm in a grandfathered package, not that it should...
