Looking to install a small TV in kitchen...instead of "mirroring" to other Directv receivers in the house, would like this TV to have its own receiver...

But the standard Directv receivers are too big for our kitchen use...footprint is too big and they stand too high and push the TV up too high from the countertop to the cabinet...

Searched online for a "mini" Directv HD satellite receiver but no luck...

Would appreciate guidance from anybody who has looked for a "mini" Directv HD satellite receiver...

Thanks!

Get the smallest receiver you can and mount it up underneath a cabinet where it'll be mostly out of sight, and run the hdmi (or whatever) cable to the tv. Just make sure you mount it with the right orientation for air flow and dont block any vents. Or put it in or under a cabinet near the tv and run a wire.

Put the receiver in a cabinet, configure the remote to RF, and run a long hdmi or component cable to the TV location. You can buy the cables at reasonable prices at monoprice.com.....

Bottom line, there is only ONE size of HD receivers, which will all be H2x models
This also applies to all their HD DVR's, which are the same size as the H2x non-DVR receivers...

He didn't say which recvr he was looking for, but I thought the D11-12 line were a little smaller, of course no DVR on them.

The POINT is, the OP wants an mini HD receiver - NOT SD. (he actually said it TWICE - once in the post title & then within his post)

The D12 is NOT an HD box!

What IS so hard to understand??? :confused:

OK, ALL HD D* branded boxes are the same size ......

Is that what you want me to say ?
How does that help the OP ?

I don't see either of you coming up with any answers .......:rolleyes:

No, I already did THAT - but if you want to repeat, suit yourself :p

How does that help the OP ?

It helped him by telling him that NO such thing exists for him - but I guess telling him about a non-HD receiver that he is NOT looking for makes WAY more sense... :rolleyes:

Several of us did - YOU just don't like them, & the OP may not, either; obviously you can't always get what YOU want in life :rolleyes:

Thats OK, in case you haven't noticed, all of our post are being type to NO ONE, the OP hasn't posted back or been back since the original day he posted.
