    HR20-HR24 / H21-H25 CE Release 12/2

    Past 2 days the HR20-100 has been mostly unresponsive to remote control. The batteries are brand new, controls the TV just fine... If I keep holding or pressing buttons, sometimes it responds, occasionally acts normal and then nothing for a couple minutes. Turning off and on from the front panel...

    HR20-HR24 / H21-H25 CE Release 12/2

    HR20-100, the receiver froze when I pressed the LIST key. It drew the background and was completely unresponsive after that. I was recording a VOD program at the time. After about 15 minutes of unresponsiveness, it reset itself. After reset, I pressed LIST again and it froze again, same thing. I...

    D12-500 is dead

    Yeah, I checked the connections, everything's still hooked up the same. It does not respond to the buttons on the face of the box or the remote control. The blue light turns on when you plug it in and that's all that happens...

    D12-500 is dead

    My D12-500 has a blue light on the front but that's all it does. It is leased. I've read about how these things die all the time because of faulty power supplies, and there was a software update going on this week as well. Probably a coincidence, but since the blue light still comes on I can't...

    D11 / D12 Software Release 8/20/09 v.1191/1192/1194

    I wonder if this is why my D12-500 doesn't work anymore... the blue LED turns on but that's it.

    H21 Software Release 0x42eb

    I don't do the CE, it was a normal update that is being pushed down to everyone AFAIK. No protection plan. I could just buy a new receiver for less than I would have paid in "protection". When I first got DirecTV a year ago I did a lot of research into the problems I was having and basically...

    H21 Software Release 0x42eb

    I don't know what's new between what it told us was new in the "Your receiver has been updated!" pop-up, but performance-wise the new firmware is terrible for me. It is SO UNBELIEVABLY SLOW to respond to button presses, even slower than it used to be (which was much slower than my SD box) and...

    when all channels are HD

    i would think hotels & places like that will probably take longer to switch... most hotels only got remote controls recently :P maybe SD will cost extra instead of HD someday...

    XM on DirecTV - Changes & Some new (non-xm) music

    Yeah, it seems they basically went from 3 hip-hop channels with some unique characteristics to each to one monolithic channel that plays more mainstream & radio stuff... but that was to be expected when they became the only game in town. I had Music Choice on cable and I thought it was better...

    HD Signal issues suddenly

    Thanks. I'll see what I can come up with in a few days. :) Right now I'm sick & dizzy from cold medicine, so I'll wait until I've gotten over this before I go climbing up any ladders. :D

    HD Signal issues suddenly

    On 103(a) I'm getting nothing less than 95, so that one's good. It seems that 99 is the only one with weak signals. Is there a guide somewhere that says how to adjust the dish? I did it in the olden days with an old RCA dish (when you only had one thing to aim at), but with the 5 LNB I'm...

    HD Signal issues suddenly

    I forgot to mention that last weekend (saturday or sunday) when I woke up, the HD receiver was totally frozen... it would turn off and on, but not respond to any other remote control or front panel commands. I had to unplug it from the wall and reboot it. It seems like the poor signal started...

    HD Signal issues suddenly

    Well, it got worse as the game went on. I had to watch the whole 3rd period in SD because now the HD channel is 771 most of the time, with a few seconds here and there of video. Other channels like HBO and CNN are doing the same thing, while the SD channels all seem fine (i understand they...

    HD Signal issues suddenly

    Hi, I got DirecTV HD with the H21-100 receiver a few months ago... it's been working fine as far as signal goes. I'm a big hockey fan and have been anxiously awaiting the start of the season, so, of course, a few days ago I started getting crappy HD reception. It comes and goes, seems like it is...

    Blackouts on MLB Replays/Encores

    I think MLB sells game replay video through their website. I guess if you want to watch a completed game, that's where they want you to do it.

    Hi, For the last couple days Fox Sports en Español on channel 425/616 has been showing a "Channel not purchased" message, but I have the Premier package which includes the premium sports pack, which includes FSE. I had my DTV tuner unplugged all last weekend, after which I had to go through...
