Had the Genie 3-4 months. As summer arrived, we started having trouble with recording. I will do my best to explain the problem clearly. First, the problem seems to occur after a significant storm. Genie doesn't lose power. The house doesn't lose power. With frequency, the times on shows are off. For example, I'm watching a show that began at 8PM and at 8:17 I want to bac...

Hope I can explain something I don't understand. I've read Microsoft Outlook has a feature called Outlook Mobile Service that allows me to send SMS to my cell. To accomplish this I apparently need a web service address supplied by my carrier. How do I find my web service address?

PC can see the HD in Device Manager as "Unknown USB Device." Does NOT appear in Windows Explorer.

OK, hooked the HD up to my PC with it still in the ThermalTake enclosure. PC recognizes a new device is connected and installs a SATA AHCI adapter. After installation, Unknown USB Device appears under Universal Serial Bus Controllers. That's it, best I can tell. Does that mean the HD is recognized/working?

Just had the Genie installed a couple of days ago. Using a WD 3T HD and Thermaltake enclosure as the external setup. Don't know which of these is my problem. With the external drive NOT attached, I can see 3 recorded programs on "List." With the external drive attached, I can see 3 the same recorded programs on "List." Any recorded program shows up on list whether the ext...

Hope this is the proper forum. I'll be getting a Genie middle of May. Want to get an external hard drive for it. I've searched here but can find no list of acceptable HDs. I HAVE found any external drive that accepts eSATA will work. I've found specific mention of the Western Digital WDx0EURX. Looked it up in Google but can find no indication it accepts eSATA. I can find ...

Have two DTV HD-20 units. Recorded a show a couple of weeks ago on what I'll call unit A. Deleted it the next day. No problems. However, it is still on "List" on Unit B. Tried deleting it may times. The good news is the delete works. The bad news is it returns to the list within a few hours (next day?). Deleted multiple times. Returns every time. How do I PERMANENTLY dele...

Did a search here but didn't find the answer. Of course, maybe I'm focusing too much on definitions. The DTV web site lists external HDs "recommended" by DTV. Does that mean only those on the list will work or is it the 'normal' definition of "these have been tested and work? My reason for asking is I would like to go to a 20TB HD. OK, OK, not really. But a 2TB would be n...

Sorry for the delayed response. A little confused about external v. OEM hard drive. I realize the external ca fail and I lose programs. Isn't that true of the OEM hard drive? Is there a 'fail rate' difference between the two or something else I'm missing? I presume this means there's no way to back up either drive, right?

So any external eSATA drive negates the need for a "suitable case?" Very good. Who makes a DVR-optimized external drive - OEM in case?
