    What does an AT&T fiber install require?

    Can this be a self install? Is there a physical cable or wire that needs to be ran fresh from the road? How does the connection get to me inside the house? I am thinking of ditching xfinity wifi & bundling AT&T fiber with my Directv. Will an installer need access to my house? Just the outside?

    Is this thing worth it? My kids have old deactivated iphones that they use like ipods for music & games & stuff, watching shows from the DVRs would be a plus for them to be able to do - at home & on road trips. How well does it do in this capacity?

    SWM 8 vs SWM 16

    So I am going to be swapping my swm 8 out with a swm 16. For my current set up I have 1 line coming off of the SWM1/PWR going into the power inserter, then the 8 way splitter is fed by the IRD port of the power inserter with the DVRs being fed from the 8 way splitter. Is this type of set up NOT...

    Should I get an HR24 or HR44?

    I'm thinking of replacing my aging (dying) HR20. I have a few DVRs (HR23 being the newest) with the unsupported whole-home connected via ethernet & I am perfectly happy with my set up. I wanted to get an HR24, but I was curious if the HR44 would be worth shelling out a couple more bucks. Can I...

    YouTube gone after new firmware

    So my HR21 took the firmware update like 4 weeks ago & Since then youtube & pandora are gone. Is there any way to 'force' them to come back? I have tried resetting countless times (from the menu as well as the front panel button) with no luck.

    off-air tuner on HR-20

    Why would tuner one be showing a decent signal & tuner 2 have little to no signal? There's only one input & it is not run with swm signal, it's a seperate cable. Am I missing something?

    "Unsupported" MRV issue/question

    Not sure if I have something set up wrong, or if this is how it should be acting... While DVR A is watching a recorded program from DVR B, DVR C is showing all programs from DVR B as unavailable, although DVR C can still watch programs from DVR A. Is this "normal" ? I dont remember running in...

    diplexing off-air signal on a SWM 8

    Thinking about doing this to eliminate excessive cable runs....Any thoughts? My biggest concern would be loss of signal strength vs. a straight dedicated run from the antenna. Is it better to have a seperate line or will it be just as good either way?

    SWM trouble with HR20-700

    Is there any reason that I would be having trouble using a SWM 8 setup with an HR20? I just put in the SWM8 today, I first transitioned an HR23 with no issues. Upon converting over the HR-20, my signal readings are crap & the DVR is slow to respond and just not working right. I used the same...

    newer HD channels 'disappearing'

    Has anyone else had any of the newer HD channels disappear from their favorites list? In the last few weeks I have had to re-select the newer HD channels into my favorite list at least once on the HR20 & 2 or 3 times on the HR 23s. I am referring to the HD movie channels & Lifetime HD & hallmark...

    ordering a DVR from DTV

    Anyone know if they are sending out HR24s when you order off of DTV's site? I was thinking of adding/ugrading another HD DVR since they are showing that I can get one for 99 bucks. Would be cool to get the latest & greatest:up

    Play all restarting from the begining

    My kids love Spongebob & Phineas & Ferb so we always have at least 5-10 episodes on the DVRs at all times. My problem is that when we select play on the folder to play all episodes, instead of picking up from the point at which previous playback was stopped, it will start the list again from the...

    ordering a receiver from DTVs website

    When you order an additional receiver from the DTV website, do they ship it to your house or do they schedule an installer to bring one out? Is it always a new unit? I wouldn't mind picking up another HD DVR for 99 bucks :D, but i don't want to take a day off of work to sit around & wait for...
