    need replacement for HR44, want either another HR44 or HR54 but NOT HS17

    We have 3 TV's and they are controlled by an HR44 Genie, a Genie mini (C31-700) and a stand alone HR24. Today, after a power outage ended at our home, all the hardware restarted and appeared to be ok. But about an hour later, the HR44 Genie put up a message that its HARD DRIVE HAD FAILED. I...

    Does HR24-500-R require a DACA??

    Yes, in another room where the SAT signal comes in there is a place where the SAT signal and our internet signal are combined. Then at the current HR22, the reverse occurs when the SAT and internet are broken out and each are separately plugged into the back of the HR22. As I said above, the...

    Does HR24-500-R require a DACA??

    We just received fro Directv an HR24-500-A intended to replace an old and failing HR22-100. The HR22 requires a DCA at the input to separate the internet (Ethernet) and the satellite input signal. Does the HR24 also require a DCA??? There is an Ethernet port on the back of the HR24 but it...

    Is a standalone HD-DVR (HR24??) still available through Directv?

    We have three tv's and we have 1- HR44 Genie 2- C31-700 Genie Mini 3- older standalone HR22 I fear the HR22 is soon to die. And I'm opposed to having another Mini because that means if the HR44 dies we lose ALL TV. We recently lost an HR34 that led to the HR44 but while we waited for the...

    RC73 (two of them) failing on HR44 after one worked before

    Thanks to both of you (Jimbo and dishrich) for the info. I copied the above links and will read the docs later. I did look over the Quick Discussion doc and that helps. So I don't recall having to do anything with the RC73 remote that came with the HR44 though perhaps I did. Just don't...

    RC73 (two of them) failing on HR44 after one worked before

    Long story as to why this matters but just know that I have an RC66RX remote and an RC73 remote that both work to operate my HR44 Genie that we got about a year ago to replace an old and finally dead HR34. We had a brief power outage yesterday (happens now and then and certainly not the first...

    Why does Whole Home not work on my setup???

    Wow, Lots of information. Thanks... First, all three interim receivers (one HR22-100 that has been part of the install all along and two HR20-700's which are just in there until we decide what Genie to buy to put back in (along with its Genie Mini which is currently unplugged) show Whole...

    Why does Whole Home not work on my setup???

    Hi, I thought I already posted this question but I can’t find it right now so I will try again. Yesterday, I was told I don’t need INTERNET to be able use Whole Home. Here WAS my setup. SL3 LNB SWM dish. 1x4 splitter with power connected to the power special port for that purpose. The...

    Considering buying an HR54 to replace a dead HR34

    Hi, Yes, I know about the lease deal. Directv's been doing that for a number of years. My only motive was to get newer and perhaps better supported hardware. I wanted an HR44 when we got the HR34 3 1/2 years ago when we moved to our current home, so the 44 has been around for a few years now...

    Considering buying an HR54 to replace a dead HR34

    Hi Joe891, hmmm, one question. About #3. My former three boxes were the HR22, the HR34 and its C31 Mini (3 rooms, 3 TV's). Whole Home worked. Now I've removed the HR34 and the Mini and simply hooked precisely the same cables (same splitter, etc) into two older HR20's we had in storage?? But...

    Considering buying an HR54 to replace a dead HR34

    Hi, Our HR34 Genie's hard drive had been trying to die for a long time and finally did 4 days ago. Our setup as installed by Directv when we moved to a different home in 2014, was the HR34 in one room, a C31 Genie Mini in a second room and an older HR22 (one of three HD-DVR's we brought with us...

    Why is an HR20 seeking an input on Sat In 2???

    Help me understand what is going on. I had an HR34 Genie and one Genie Mini hooked up to two tv’s. The Genie finally died (hard drive). I have two older HR20’s in storage that Directv did not want back 3 years ago when we switched to the Genie. So Directv, at my request, deactivated both the...

    Can I re-activate an HR20 I have??

    By the way, I WAS able to reactivate my HR20's and after some interesting issues getting the HR20 to stop telling me it couldn't find a good signal on Sat Input 2 (yes, because there was NO CABLE hooked up to the Sat Input 2, the entire idea behind SWM, right???) I did finally get one of my...

    Follow up questions to a previous post about broken HR34 Genie

    As I said in a previous post, our HR34-700 Genie finally died (hard drive) a couple days ago. I was told by DTV that if I seek a warranty replacement (we do have the equipment protection plan after my wife just said “let’s get it” a couple days ago) they would send me either an HR44 or HR54 but...

    Signal Loss on Satellite Input 2???

    Hi, I was told the HR20's I had that were stored in my attic (DTV did not want them back three years ago when we switched to Genie) were SWM compatible so if I could get DTV to reactivate them I should be able to replace my dead HR34 Genie with one of these older HR20's, at least to get that TV...

    Can I re-activate an HR20 I have??

    OK, sorry for bothering you jimbo as I found a good, concise answer on SolidSignal. As follows... "What Qualifies as a SWM System? A SWM (Single Wire Multiswitch) System consists of either a satellite dish with SWM Technology built in, or a multiswitch with SWM Technology. SWM Dishes are...

    Can I re-activate an HR20 I have??

    Thanks for the response. I know that SWM is Single Wire Multiswitch (at least, I think??) but it's been a while since I think I knew what that meant. Can you refresh my memory about what SWM means and relate that to the HR20's that you say are "SWM compatible"??? I will also go look it up on...

    Can I re-activate an HR20 I have??

    One other thing to add and ask about regarding my HR34 Genie that died today (hard drive died). When we moved where we live now 3 years ago, we brought two HR20's and one HR22 from our old house. We had the Directv guy install the HR22 in one of our bedrooms. Then we had them install a Genie...
