Call them and ask them what they will do for you. I think they've been offering Genie + client upgrades as an option too. I assume you don't want to lose your DVR and have only receivers...Will DTV swap out my two D12-100 and SD dvr for three H24 receivers. (I know a SL3 antenna is required) in this required hd receiver change over.
Yes, unless things have changed the upgrades for MPEG2 SD customers are no commitment, because Directv is leaving them without a choice due to SD receivers becoming boat anchors later this year.Not necessarily. Aren't they still offering a swap to mpeg4 equipment with no contract due to the change from mpeg2 to mpeg4?
You can still get into a Genie (HR44/54 ... 54 if you need 4k) with your set up, just not the Genie 2 (HS17, thats the one that requires you go to clients entirely) ...The problem is I have two receivers in house, one receiver out in a RV and the other out in my garage so a genie setup might not work for me. I have the old lmb with 4 outputs driving the sd receivers. I would like to get 4 h24 receivers and a SL3 antenna with 4 outputs (lmb on ebay) 2 year commitment is not a problem.
DO NOT GET A GENIE SYSTEM!Will DTV swap out my two D12-100 and SD dvr for three H24 receivers. (I know a SL3 antenna is required) in this required hd receiver change over.
They will install the single wire LNB - the reverse band 3 is what they install for everyone now (unless they have so many receivers they exceed the limit of what it is capable of)Thanks for all the info you people have given me. The HD satellite used now is the single line in to a splitter box with the cables having to go back out through the wall outside. The old lmb has 4 outputs so I've hook every thing up outside. I saw on Ebay there is a SL3 lmb with 4 outputs, does DTV have or use that kind of lmb? Can I choose what lmb I get. I would get one if they would install it.
