    How can I get a HR24 Receiver?

    I called D* is November and just asked specifically about getting an HR24. She said it was $199. I asked can she do better on the price, she put me on hold for about 5 min, came back and said if I bought right now, they could drop it to $99, but I had to have it pro installed for another $20. I...

    New HR24, slwo RF remote response

    Which of my replies implied you don't know anything? If one Did, I apologize. I was asked if I replaced batteries and if I rebooted. I replied I had done both. You asked what type of reset I did, I said I did a soft boot, you asked for a definition of a softboot. You took this off topic with...

    caps don't necessarily drain when power is removed. coming from an electronics repair background in the US AF I had to drain caps with a shorting rod on several solid state devices to make sure they were drained before I laid my bare hands on the circuit board. On most, I aways had some...

    Disagree all you want. RBR, removes power momentarily from the CPU, same as pulling the plug. There is no "are you sure you want to do this" error message when you hit the red button is there? Want to know why? You do not give the CPU the option, because you have removed it's power source.

    New HR24, slwo RF remote response

    jimbo your reply made no sense. other than to reboot you have made no suggestions or offered if you have experienced this issue. I replied that I did in fact reboot, both by power cycling and via soft reboot. you for some dumb reason wanted to debate rebooting terminology rather than help. No...

    In the world of any computer system, using a reset button or power switch is a hard reboot. Using the system's menu or command line interface to reboot is commonly known as a soft reboot.

    New HR24, slwo RF remote response

    Anyone else have a very slow response from the remote when in RF mode. When i switch it over, I have to hold a button for about 5 seconds for the DVR to respond. The light on the DVR doesn't even blink to acknowledge it got he command from the remote. I tried StoneCold's thing of disabling the...

    Fox Brrrrp, brrrrp

    I get the Columbus Fox channel and I get the same thing. Always seems to happen when when of my shows is on! When it's just casual viewing of reruns it works great! :-(. I have called and complained several times but never get a follow up from DirecTV.

    Coming back to D* from Uverse, any good deals to know about?

    My wife found an online add to through MyPoints too where they are offering a free HD DVR. So I think I should have pressed a little harder.
