    Wireless Internet Connection to HD DVR?

    According to my DVR manual. all I need to connect wirelessly is a "wireless adapter", which I can get at Micro Center for about $49. I could run some Cat-5 to the DVR, but then I'd have to drill a hole in the floor and run the cable down to the basement and connect it to my modem/wireless...

    Wireless Internet Connection to HD DVR?

    Do I need to buy/use DTTV's Wireless Connection Kit for connecting my receiver to the internet? Could I use a wireless receiver connected to the data jack on tha back?

    Getting DTV installed, what shoud I ask?

    We're getting DTV installed tomorrow and I'm wondering what shoud I be expecting of the installer? Should I make sure before he/she starts doing anything that I'm informed of any "out of the ordinary" install posibilities, such as cable runs over the normal, possible extra charges, etc? I'm a...

    Installation questions

    I'm 99.67% sure I want to switch from cable to DTV (DVR, etc), however, my wife has a few reservations (she always does that, ruins my fun!) Her concerns (and I guess I should be concerned too) are: What if the dish mounting on the roof causes a leak in the roof? Who is responsible for...

    Why would I need a protection plan?

    I see protection plans offered, but I'm wondering why I would need it? If I'm leasing the equipment, should the owner of the equipment replace/repair it if it's even needed? Does the equipment crap-out very often?

    Might take the plunge and have install questions

    Well, since we don't do PPV, then problem solved.

    Might take the plunge and have install questions

    I thought you needed to have the phone connected when you have a DVR?

    Might take the plunge and have install questions

    Gettin' closer to switching to Directtv from cable (!?). I (especially my wife) hate surprises, so I was looking to get a few general questions answered. 1. My phone jack is across the living room from where I would have the TV. Maybe 10-12 feet. Will the installer be able to make a hard-wire...

    DVR question

    Ok, I'm suffciently scolded about over-thinking this out. (Although we must be lucky, because our cable has never gone out).

    DVR question

    Any drawbacks/flaws that SAT has vs Cable? How about equipment reliability? Is the DVR reasonably reliable? I'd hate to switch and then have problems we didn't have before. :confused:

    DVR question

    Ya, well, you don't know my wife! Any small "glitch" and off she goes... It's got to work every time. If I screw up recording a show, yikes! But if she screws it up, well, oops, I made a mistake.

    DVR question

    Thanks. If I'm understanding, it looks like I should have a set of "Rabbit" ears connected to the DVR so I can record "CSI's and Family Guy" from our local stations, (not the local stations carried by DISH, right?), so then we are "free" to watch any other programs carried by DISH, whether it's...

    DVR question

    Thanks for the answers! Ok, so if I understand this correctly, since I usually only record shows only on my local channels (CBS, NBC, FOX), occasionally from a "cable" channel, I can use an OTA antenna to record from those channels, and free up a tuner to be able to watch any channels on the...

    DVR question

    OK, sounds like just what I thought. My problem will be solved if I have a second receiver in the second room (bedroom). OTA won't always be the answer, as the kids watch a lot of Nick & ABC Family in the bedroom.

    DVR question

    I have a question about the Dishnetwork DVR. I don't seem to be getting a consistant answer. What I want to know is this: if I have the Dish DVR (2 tuners), can I watch on one TV a program (CBS for example), and record a second program (Discovery) (family room for example), and watch a third...
