Sure, but you will need a "special" cable that can be provided by DirecTV

I'd listen to peds48 and use the website. Directv doesn't send out 10 pin cables from their ordering system.. Idk why! It's just never been an option to send out.

That's good to know because I've been advising folks to simply call Directv (to order a dongle) every since the Clients were released.

Yeah! I just had a call about that infact. Sometimes if you call they will let you go purchase one from radioshack and credit the amt back to the account. that's what I do for them most the time. they also don't send out the digital audio cables.. we need an update in the ordering system!

Radio Shack does NOT sell these. As shannon1 says, solidsignal and other online sellers.

Yes. The installation guy had a cable that he used which converts HDMI to RCA video/audio jacks when he hooked up my old TV to my new Genie system. Works great.

All you need is the cable I posted on the first response. HDMI is not involved at all!

We got dtv on feb 21 2014. The guy gave us a cable for my tv in the basement mitsubishi ws65315 with no hmdi but hd ready from 2005. Didn't have to buy it he gave us a 10 pin cable red green and blue (not yellow red and white). He had it on him I guess. I don't remember mentioning it on the phone.

That's the component video cable. Your Tv has a component video HD connection but does not have HDMI.
The composite video connector is similar but has yellow/red/white connectors.

DirecTV actually does send out 10pin cabling. Both composite and component.... We do not however send out HDMI to RCA converters or digital audio cabling.

When I open oms, and go to any accessories, or hd accessories or anything, there are no 10 pin cables. None. So please enlighten me where in my system I can order that cable for someone. As far as I know, only installers can present a customer with that. I'd rather not get an UTR for sending a tech out to give someone a cable.

for sending a tech out to give someone a cable.
and you should not create a SC for this reason.

The 10-pin cables are listed in OMS accessories as "replacement component cable" and "replacement composite cable." They are listed under H25 and client accessories.
