    DirecTV to Xfinity X1 - Anything I should know?

    Yeah, this is a tough choice! I love my DIRECTV but it does go out often in my area (snow, heavy rain, random digital archiving) it annoys my wife to no end, LOL! She is all for switching to Comcast but I am estimating that the savings will be about $30 per month. Not stellar but $30 save is...

    DirecTV to Xfinity X1 - Anything I should know?

    I did read somewhere that you can request a voice remote free of charge...I'll link it if I can find the article again!

    DirecTV to Xfinity X1 - Anything I should know?

    I wonder if all new installs get a 6 tuner and not one of the old ones that hasn't been unlocked yet? Also, do the new voice remotes come standard with new installs?

    DirecTV to Xfinity X1 - Anything I should know?

    Are there different X1 DVR's? I read that one model only has 4 tuners instead of 5?

    DirecTV to Xfinity X1 - Anything I should know?

    If X1 is pretty comparable to The Genie and Dish, I will probably be happy. My other option is to drop one room of Genie service that we really don't need and also see what retention offer they make. If I can save some money, I will be happy to keep DirecTV.

    DirecTV to Xfinity X1 - Anything I should know?

    Installation is scheduled for Sept 26th so I still have a little time to cancel if needed. I do like the Genie, I have the HR44 as well, but the savings would be fairly substantial to switch. I am really split 50/50 on wanting to switch but the no contract deal makes it easier to give it a...

    DirecTV to Xfinity X1 - Anything I should know?

    Hi guys, I just ordered up Comcast Triple Play with X1 DVR. I currently have Comcast Voice and Internet but use DirecTV Genie DVR system. The price for both services is getting out of hand so I decided to combine everything into the triple play for 12 month price lock, no contract! I am...

    The Weather Channel....is BACK!

    Did Comcast dump TWC also? My wife is upset with DirecTV and wants to go back to Comcast but judging by this thread, it isn't DirecTV's fault?

    Audio not synced with video?

    Has anyone been experiencing out of sync audio? It has happened twice now and both times, I was able to shut the HR44 off and turn it back on to cure the issue. Is this normal or is something going on?

    Big Problem...Code 775

    We are back in business! The installer came this morning and found the LNB was defective. He didn't like the patchwork cable either so he replaced it with one run from the switch to the DVR. Everything looks good now...hopefully no more 775 errors!

    RC71 Remote - Stopping Playback

    Yeah, this is one reason I got a RC66RBX for my HR44...the RF doesn't work but I now have a backlit remote with full DVR control and control for my Blu-Ray player and surround sound receiver!

    Big Problem...Code 775

    I hope it isn't my HR44 receiver! I was damn lucky to even get it! The installer claimed to only have HR34's on the truck when I asked for an HR44 but decided to look and found 1 in his stock!

    Big Problem...Code 775

    It was initially but I moved it to the wall plug after the first occurrence. What gets me is that it worked sometimes but got progressively worse? Maybe the inserter is bad or the patchwork cable has a short somewhere?

    Big Problem...Code 775

    I am not even 1 week into the new DirecTV system and things got ugly! At install, the tech had issues getting the HR44 to communicate with the dish. He finally got it working but each day after the install, I would get a Code 775 Cabling alert and no picture. I was able to fix it each day by...

    How does the Genie work?

    I have 2 C41's and 1 C31.

    How does the Genie work?

    Curious as to how the Genie system works? Does the signal travel to and from the mini's both ways via coax cable or do the mini's run on wireless internet? Basically, how do the mini's communicate with the HR44?

    Universal Remote Optimized for DirecTV?

    Codes are ok, here is what happens when I try to enter the tv code on the RC71...I do Mute/Select and wait for 2 blinks. I start to enter the code and the remote blinks red as soon as I press the first number of the code. I tried 900 times...LOL! I think the remote is bricked or something.

    Universal Remote Optimized for DirecTV?

    For now, I swapped the RC66 from the Genie Mini in the game room with the RC71 from the HR44 in the Living room. I'm not crazy about the slide switch on the RC66 but it will do for now. I had an issue with reprogramming he RC71 for the Mini however...it works on the box but wont take any codes...

    Universal Remote Optimized for DirecTV?

    Can any of you guys recommend an affordable Universal remote that handles DirectTV as good or better than OEM? It only needs to run 4 devices (DirecTV, Sony Blu-ray, Sony Surround Sound Receiver and Visio Smart TV) I currently have the small black/white DirecTV remote as well as the older...

    Will DierecTV ever add Netflix to the TV Apps?

    Yeah, I can see the conflict (Netflix vs. Cinema) but as mentioned, it would be a great added convenience for customers of both services!
