    Who is your internet provider?

    I get my internet as well as phone service from WOW...otherwise known as Wide Open West. I get 15 down and 1 up...with an option to get as much as 2 up. Don't really need that much upload power though. Just waiting for them to get to 20 down like their main competitor which is Insight.

    D* HR24, connecting to the Internet

    Discovered my problem on the second DVR was that I had a bad ethernet cable. Port on back of DVR did not light up. Even tried the cable in other devices like my laptop and still nothing. I will have to go get another cable today and go under the house for the THIRD time this week. Hopefully...

    D* HR24, connecting to the Internet

    On my install day, the tech plugged the livingroom HR24 into my router. Told me it might take a while for it to actually connect to the internet. It did...about a day or so. Today I plugged my bedroom HR24 into my router for the first time....because it involved dropping ethernet cable under...

    Just ordered DTV. Why am i so worried?

    Today's The Day!!! It's install day! Tech could arrive in as little as an hour from now. So as soon as I finish producing my newscast....I'll rush home and start getting things ready. Can't wait. The line of sight issue is still in the back of my mind but I'm confident they will figure it...

    Well less than 24 hours now until my install. I was able to switch from 12-4 to 8-12. That helps out a lot with my work hours. Looking forward to hassle free installation. Will keep you posted.

    Sat-Go

    Does anyone own the Sat-Go portable Directv system? Assuming my main home installation works out in just 3 days now...I want to look at purchasing this for road trips. Does it work while driving or is it just like having a dish at home...requiring it to be stationary with constant view of the...

    Universal remotes with Directv equipment

    I use the Logitech Harmony One Remote to control all of my video and audio components. With my Directv install just a week away, I decided to hook the remote up to my computer and see if it would find and try to install the controls for the HR24 which is what I assume will be the receiver-DVR I...

    Yes, July 6th was the earliest date they had. Even on their web scheduler, July 6th came up as the earliest date.

    Just ordered DTV. Why am i so worried?

    I will be curious as well to see what equipment I get. I have heard lots of good things about the HR24. However, I did not go with the whole home dvr package. Instead I got two separate DVRs. With the amount of stuff my family records...many of which overlap...I need to be able to record...

    Just ordered DTV. Why am i so worried?

    Thanks for all the input. I feel a little better. We'll find out for sure on July 6th! I'm really glad I found this forum. You would think, however, that since I work for a TV station I would know more about satellite lingo. But I'm a producer not an engineer. Bookmarked this forum and I...

    Clean network feeds

    Just thought of another question. I know DTV carries all of my local channels but do they also provide access to clean feeds of NBC, ABC, CBS and FOX. Just wondering.

    Just ordered DTV. Why am i so worried?

    Only thing I can say about the tree is that it is directly in the line of sight due south. If the dish needs to go southeast or southwest it hopefully will be good. But with my luck, that one damn tree will ruin the whole thing. LOL.

    Just ordered DTV. Why am i so worried?

    I have attached three pictures to give you a better idea of what I am talking about. I hope they show up. In the first picture you can see the tree in question in the right side of the frame. Behind that tree is due south. To the left of the tree you start to see to the southeast. In...

    Just ordered DTV. Why am i so worried?

    Please try to stay with me here. I am new to the whole satellite TV thing. I just ordered directv service yesterday. Ever since then I have been extremely worried about the line of sight issue. Tech told me I have to have a clear view of the southern sky. Well, my neighbor has an oak tree...
