    Model name for this receiver

    The HR54 is alive and well. In fact, I have several HR44s still. Unless you’re getting 4K you’re more likely to get the HR44 as there is a small shortage on the HR54s at present. Kind of a mixed batch at the moment, I believe I have 6 HR44, 5 HR54 and 3 like the model posted, the cyclops HR54.

    Transfer of access card

    Negative. Access cards are, as they say, “married” to the receivers, no divorce permitted. If you get an eBay receiver you’ll need to order a new access card from the death star. In the case of eBay, and especially with any newer receivers it’s highly recommended to contact DTV with the receiver...

    I Need Help/Advice Re: Possible DirecTV Scam

    Same as any other major corporation redemption scheme you need to be persistent, follow a redemption process and not wait 7 months. If you can’t get a successful result on directv.com/redeem you’ll likely need to go thru retention.

    equipment shortage?

    Here’s the back panel. No esata like the new HS17. Otherwise no changes. No difference in tuner count, no native 4K support. IMHO it looks and feels flimsier than other models. I had a supply of the new HR54s for a couple weeks and now back to HR44 refurbs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    equipment shortage?

    There has been a shortage for several months of genies and clients. There is actually some limited ability to install genie 2s in place of a genie on new installs to account for the shortage which may eventually cause a shortage of the genie 2. They recently released 2 new sub-models of the...

    No signal Tuner 2 HR23 700

    Any SWM capable receiver will work with DSWM. Including D12s, just installed two on a RB3 yesterday. The 3D2RB and 3D2 are capable of 21 tuners while the 3D1 has 13. The 21 tuners only applies if there are only HR44 or above in the system. If anything lesser is in the system the overall system...

    No signal Tuner 2 HR23 700

    That’s correct. Check eBay, looks like they run around $20 . The RB isn’t necessary yet but is supposedly for future 4K programming. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No signal Tuner 2 HR23 700

    2 options, either a 4 line from dish to a SWM module with the appropriate number of tuners OR a digital SWM LNB. The DSWM LNBs are capable of at least 13 tuners but still over a single coax. There are multiple variations of the DSWM LNB but anything with model number 3D1 or 3D2. The current...

    No signal Tuner 2 HR23 700

    CSR formulated an excuse to get you off the phone. The answer is in the question, a SATELLITE signal is not going to be missing because of a missing internet connection. Just to be sure I understand, you have a receiver DECA in-line behind the HR23 (from “Signal to IRD” on power inserter to...

    Directv streaming package vs. their satellite feed

    It’s based on IP address unless the device has GPS. A roku or amazon fire stick will grant home locals access based on the billing address if the IP address matches a set of parameters. If it does not meet the parameters no live locals will be available, only on demand. A tablet or smartphone...
