My reasoning was in reading these forums: That the common Genie Mini error "Searching for servers" can happen when the HR34 / HR44 experiences a power surge or interruption, etc. The UPS would take care of that. Same goes for surges or interruptions of the SWiM Power Inserter in causing the Error 775, where the dish loses power from the Power Inserter. Bad or problem COAX...

I am posting this suggestion as purely a concept idea, without actually trying it.

I'm only saying that DirecTV, in implementing its interface to wireless networks, should have taken a moment longer and found a way to support the entire printable ASCII character set, and not just the "easy ones" that are derivatives of the telephone keypad-based character set. Sure, customers can go back and change their wireless password to one that has only numbers an...

That's sad to hear. I realize that the passphrase entry is via the remote, and that when you press (for instance) the [4] key, you can get only 4, plus upper or lower-case g, h, and i, but seriously. This frustrating. The rest of the WiFi industry has a live screen that shows the various character sets to choose from, including special characters. Reference any smartphone...
