I went for weeks not being able to log into the NFL Sunday Ticket on my Android tablet when I noticed an short white strip at the top of the Systembar at the bottom of the screen. It looked to me like the Systembar was hiding the box that I had to click on in order to log in. I searched for a way to turn off the Systembar so I could see the full screen. I first found an a...

Hi Texasbrit, Just call me Texasjim. My speculation on the SWM requirement is based on the expected cost of changing them out. I was told that there is a version of antenna that has the SWM8 built in. That will add even more to the cost. It is my understanding, from multiple readings on the issue, that the problem with multiple genie centers around the inability of the mi...

Good point about the mini using one of the tuners. Picture in Picture uses 2 tuners though I don't believe the mini does pip. I suspect that one reason for not allowing 2 genies per account is due to the need to swap out the swm-8 for a swm-16. I am currently at my limit with the Genie=5, HR24=2 and the H23=1 receivers for a total of 8. It's unfortunate that I have to liv...

Ouch! That blows all of my plans out the window. There are times when the Genie is recording 5 shows and the HR24 is recording 2. Using the H23 allows me to choose whether to record on the Genie or the HR24. Will the mini play content from the HR24? If so, I can dump the H23, use a couple of minis to control recording on the one Genie and play back from the Genie and the ...

Thank you for the prompt response. Please verify my understanding that DTV will only allow one-1-uno-ichi Genie per DTV account?

. I have a H23, HR24 and H34 Genie. I plan to dump the H23 and HR24, add a second Genie which might be a HR44. I also want to add two Genie Minis. Will the Genie Minis work with both Genie DVRs or just one?

Been doing it for at least 10 years with no accumulation of dirt or debris. WD40 goes on as a very thin, non sticky thin coat compared to using heavier oils.

I have great success by spraying WD40 on the dish when snow or ice are in the forecast. It just slides off.

No Problem! Issues like this can be very complex and extremely difficult to solve. I've been in the business of defining, designing and programming electronic equipment since 1955. I know all too well that one system can have a problem where another one doesn't. Most of the time problems of this type can be pinned down to a marginal component somewhere. Many times, design...

No problem with local channels. Only national channels where DTV inserts local commmercials.

I did everything you suggest. Nothing clears up the problem. I don't have an external drive connected. The problem has existed for months. It's not catastrophic but it is annoying. You seem to be suggesting that the problem is with the hard disk. I can't agree with that. The problem is too specific in that it occurs right after a local commercial on a national feed. Playb...
