    Is professional installation of CINEMA Connection with Whole Home DVR really needed?

    You can Dottie yourself. I just did. I have a GIGE capable router and cat 6 drops all over the house. These term into my directv receivers and other Internet ready devices. The hard part is getting them to activate the whole home DVR. I had to email tech support and ask for "unsupported whole...

    mpeg2 vs. mpeg4

    FYI all of Direct tv source content (Local channels) are pulled out of the air in the local DMA using off air antenna. The national content is most likely MPEG2/4 already or perhaps even H.264 but I would be surprized if any of it is over 20 - 30Mb/s and is most likely transported over GIGe or...

    mpeg2 vs. mpeg4

    Modern video compression schemes are very complex because there are numerous variables that interact and influence the overall performance. I’ll try to keep the following to the point. Remember that each set of processes has a sweet spot. After MPEG-2 became well accepted, it was noticed that...

    Verizon may bid for D*

    Yes Fios is a nice setup. I just wish Verizon would not have sold most of the local footprint they owned and abandoned those customers to a lifetime of Plain old Telephone and slow DSL.

    Verizon may bid for D*

    That was only done in the past to protect the network. Since the old systems were very electromechanical equipment that did not follow specs could damage the old "Step by Step" switches. Very expensive. While I agree more could have been done to harbor competition look at how great it is now...

    Verizon may bid for D*

    And even those companies are not totally free of the "Bell System". Most of the VOIP and cable companies buy wavelength services from AT&T for longdistance phone and internet traffic. In my opinino the government should put AT&T totally back together again including western and regulate them...

    Verizon may bid for D*

    AT&T NYNEX Errr AT&T Bell Atlantic ERRRR… Verizon is nothing but a holding company now. They do not have the resources to negotiate such a purchase let along the political capital to get it done. If anyone is going to buy DirecTV it will be AT&T. Lets face the facts AT&T built all this crap and...

    Thursday night Steelers game audio issues

    I thought so also. But I had it on both the Youngstown Ohio affiliate and the Cleveland Affiliate. My off air picks up both. So this was either my antenna or it was an NBC issue.

    HR2x / R22 Software Release 8/22 v.034C (Addition of Double-Play & More)

    Well im sure glad to see they stopped the NR before it went GA. It's hard to catch every bug on anything but it's nice to see they caught it and stopped it before it went out. For some companies it is hard to swallow that kind of a pill and admit you had issues. Others would have released it...

    D* about to lose their transmission center?

    They were most likely talking about the microwave tower on top of Mount Wilson. We "AT&T" and just about every broadcast company has microwave repeaters up on that hill. Last count I got was 22 TV stations and 25 FM radio stations. All techs have been removed from those facilities for safety...

    TiVo files patent infringement lawsuits against AT&T and Verizon

    You know they got over on Dish. But going after AT&T is not a good idea. Not only do they have the most friends in Congress (Via Campain contributions) but they could also counter sue for use of the hum... (Transistor, Coaxial cable and im sure they invented other items used by Tivo lol)

    HR2x / R22 Software Release 8/22 v.034C (Addition of Double-Play & More)

    Do you have anyway to force the update? I need this remote to work faster. My wife is on me like crazy since we just moved from Dish network... Also before we had 1 HD-DVR for 2 TV's. Now I have a HD-DVR for 1 TV and an HD receiver on the other TV. Does Direct TV have anyway to share DVR shows...

    New Slimline 3 SWM without External Power Pack

    Agreed. I just wanted to make sure I would recieve the NFL ticket stuff once it went live. Since I have no way to assure myself that works until said time. I had that problem with Dish Network. When I signed up I was a week away from ordering HD and they assured me my setup would not need...

    New Slimline 3 SWM without External Power Pack

    I had direct installed today. I have a huge dish bit it only has 1 eye with what looks like 3 lnd "eyes" on or. System says I get 3 birds. The installer had to run 2 additional coaxial lines from the dish which confused me since I had dish network from the same physical location with no issues...

    SEC Network?

    CBS and ESPN won the contract to provide video feeds from the SEC for the next 15 years. CBS will carry most of the large high profile games and ESPN will pick up some as well.

    Need advice on new HD DVR receivers.

    So slightly off topic! I notice that the HR-20 comes with an OTA tuner built in. Can you also record from this like you can on the Dish network VIP 622/722? If so I think this was one of my last road blocks stopping me from moving to Direct TV!
