No stop button. Push PAUSE, INFO, SELECT, to get the options instead.

You don't need to go to list to find the program. Just pause the program (if you like, its not required), hit INFO, then SELECT, and the option to delete, or restart is right there.

I've had that as well. I suspect its a handshake problem with copy protection over the HDMI cable. Try just changing the channel and then changing it back. That works for me at least. Not a great solution, but it works.

No, I don't think the minis will need any direct Internet access. They don't have any real intelligence. They are pretty dumb. They act as virtual connections to the main unit, which is actually passing the video to them. I would be surprised if you can even update the firmware in them. It is interesting that they still worked when you were denying their access to your ne...

Actually the main Genie AND each client mini gets an IP address. Each mini has a modem that communicates over your cable connection to the main Genie. When they come on-line the main Genie gets the IP address for each mini on their behalf and passes it to each mini. The minis communicate to the main Genie through IP over the cable and for one device to talk with another, ...

If the goal is to get GenieGo to work out of home, your going to need more than port forwarding. GenieGo checks that the remote device is on the same network as the DVR. If it is not, playback is not allowed. There are a few ways to get around that, like setup a VPN to your home. This does work, but its more advanced than the scope of this question. And as I said earlier,...

If you can get wired Ethernet to the Genie, that is your best bet, especially if you plan to use VOD often. To use wireless, just press menu, Settings & Help, Settings, Network Setup. It will walk you through it. If wireless doesn't work well enough, then there is another option, but its a bit more advanced, so start with wireless and see if it will work for you.

I think your going to have to tell us what equipment you have. If its a Genie, just connected the Ethernet connector in the back, then you have Internet.

You can't do that. The 192.168.1.1 is only valid inside your house. Outside your house you have a public IP address. Unless you pay extra and if you have cable or DSL, its likely your IP address changes over time. You could pay extra for a fixed IP address, or use a free service that tracks your changing IP address like noip.com Once you have this IP address, you have to ...

It really shouldn't be a grounding issue and without any grounding at all there shouldn't be 120V on the case of the DirecTV box. Typically only the dish is grounded, not the receivers. At least mine isn't. What occurs is that these boxes are made in China with less than perfect testing, and somewhere along during shipping either a circuit support breaks or a winding in t...

Maybe a stupid question, but can't you install everything at the same time? My whole system took make 2 1/2 hours to install and that includes the dish. Send the family to the mall for a few hours and it will be complete. The Genie minis won't work until the Genie is installed. That is it's server. Without a server it won't do much.

Yeah, I also would hold little hope that a DirecTV update will "fix" this issue. You have no proof its even a DirecTV problem other than it worked fine with another DVR. That older DVR likely wasn't as strict on the copy protection enforcement, and there is a good possibility that it was the older DirecTV DVR that actually wasn't enforcing the rules, so technically your o...
