Short answer, no it will not work. If you are feeding an older TV in the kitchen, then I think you should stick with the RF modulator. What I don't get is why the signal from the AV video-out is so bad. S-Video is just chroma and luma on separate channels. The chroma and luma are "composited" onto a single channel for the AV video-out (that's why it's called composite). T...

"Assumed Answered?" Why? Because nobody answered it?

Nothing? Did I post this in the wrong forum? Where do most of the posts regarding SHEF go?

I cannot get the poweroff keypress to work for a Genie client (C41) through SHEF. The poweroff keypress works for the Genie itself, and other keypresses work for the clients (e.g. pause). I imagine this is just DirecTV doing a half-implementation of SHEF on the clients, but I thought I would post to see if anyone has a trick to turning off Genie clients via TCP/IP. Thanks...

If you want to buy a new receiver now, and then buy a new DVD player and upgrade your satellite receiver later, then just make sure that the receiver you buy upconverts the composite video and coax audio inputs to HDMI. Most $350+ Home Theater AV receivers will do this. Connect the HDMI output of the AV receiver to your LG TV. New AV receivers generally have HDMI inputs A...

If you have a run over 50 ft or so (15M), you are going to need converters to convert the HDMI to Cat6 for the run. Also, if the wireless remote can't reach to the downstairs box, you're also going to need an IR distribution system with an additional cable run. An IR distribution system, HDMI splitter, HDMI-to-Cat6 converters, and cat 6 cable runs may be cost prohibitive ...

I remember a couple of "HD" TVs that were 4 x 3 (with resolutions like 480p and 720p. But I don't remember ever seeing a 16 x 9 TV that didn't have at least 720p.

Definitely sounds like an HDCP problem. I would also point out that HDCP support in the baluns is not necessarily binary (i.e. it's not a yes or no thing). Because the way the handshake works, it can just be flaky and sometimes simply the order things are powered on may clear it up. There was a period when HDCP was being phased in to DirecTV receivers that I had to connec...

It appears that some mornings my HR44 makes several attempts to pulse dial a number that goes to DirecTV. Most of the calls don't go through (my Ooma doesn't seem to realize that the HR44 is dialing). Some do connect, evidently. However, my HR44 is connected to the Internet through the Ethernet port. Why would it also dial-out (and pulse dial, at that) to DirecTV? Does th...

I did the same thing last year after 18 years with DirecTV. I was very happy, at first. Here is what I found after a month: 1. PQ was not as good as DirecTV. Initial image to image comparisons were satisfying, but long term watching showed that the PQ of Uverse was inferior. Most notably was prime-time, network shows, such as those on ABC or FOX. The video had a barely pe...

I did not read it in detail. Is that a prerequisite for posting to these forums? There was no technical reason given for the need for new STBs. It's all just H.264 content being decoded and sent to the TV. Perhaps instead of chastising posters for not thoroughly reading, you can share some of your "expert" knowledge as to why new equipment is required.
