Unless you have the protection plan... not very high.
But it can't hurt to call and ask.
Any information about what it would take to upgrade this box with a 2nd hard drive? Brackets? Cables?
Also, is it possible to take out the 2nd hard drive from an old Sony SAT-T60 (with the recorded programs) and add it to this box? Would I still be able to access those programs from the R10?
As for a bracket... Check PTVUpgrades and Weakness , I am not sure if they have bracket's yet, but I am certain they are working on them.
As for taking the drive from your SAT-T60..
You can use the drive, but you will lose the recordings.
There is no upgrade method for any Tivo (DirecTivo or SA Tivo) that will allow you to access the recordings on the 2nd drive in a different system.
Yes the 6131 can control two units. But, you have to get one of the modified versions so that you can use two different remote addresses.
Any Harmony users in this thread with an R10? Harmony doesn't yet have the R10 listed as a DirecTV product so I'm having trouble finding a remote configuration that works comfortably with my newly given as a birthday gift 688. The Hughes 10-250 seemed to work ok, the DSR704 terribly.... any suggestions?
My new R-10 looks different on the on screen guide and menus. Looks fuzzier or dull. Not near as clear or brite than my other receivers. Harder to read. I also notice a slight green tint to all pictures on all channels! I compared it to my hughes and 2 philips. I tried every different way of connecting to make sure it is the R-10, and not something else, like the input, or connection. Very noticeable when connected on same tv in split screen. (yes, I switch the connections to be sure).
Guess I'll have to return this! Anyone else notice anything? Should I get another R-10, or another Hughes?
The R10 uses the exact same remote as your DSR704. I am actually USING my remote from the DSR704, instead of the one that came with the R10... Simply becase I didn't want to reprogram the TV and AV controls.
There is another thread out there specifically talking about your issue. I personally have not seen that problem with the two R10s I have hooked up.
I have had this exact same issue. My R-10 is going back. See other thread at:
Great review. I see an IR output on the rear of the R10. I was wondering, does the R10 manual give any indication that it can start and stop a DVD recorder automatically using an IR emitter? For instance are there any remote codes listed in its manual for the numerous makes of DVD recorders...I bet not...
It would be kind of nice to be able to automatically start and stop, especially to stop, a DVD recorder that you have hooked to the R10 so that you would not have to be present to make a hard drive transfer to DVD. If the R10 would just make the transfer stop automatically, that would be very helpful. I guess that is one of the desirable features of the Humax, that it stops the DVD recording process automatically at the end of the program that you are transferring to DVD.
There is no IR output on the R10... It has been removed.
There is a serial output ...
Oops, okay, well that answers that don't it...
ok. 72.5 satellite. You have to do an auto-detect for the Tivo to detect for all Sats out there. Once it does, you should have access
Well the R10 has 6.1 software... And I don't have a 72.5 dish up, so... I can't verify if the 6.1 will work with the 72.5
Yep, I messed up on the version on that one, I have since edited my comment. Thanks for telling me the software version number-I need that for where I work-we weren't aware that the software version was different that for the rest of our tivos. I'll be forwarding that one so that our info will be updated. Thanks
I just got an R10, am new to DVrs, but in one of the previous review posts on this thread it was mentioned that this unit has the 30 second skip feature by default. If so, please tell me how to do it, as the manual does not mention it, and I have not been able to find it playing around on it. Is this only available as a backdoor code, or a special code. Please let me know if you can, as I can't believe this feature wouldn't be included by default, since it would be extremely helpful because of those pesky commercials.
Those pesky commercials are the exact reason why the 30 second skip is no longer turned on by default.
Thanks to everyone here. I've been a lurker for a while with a SA TiVo Sony SVR-3000. Moved from cable to D* a little over a year ago. The Sony made the transition with me. I had two tuners installed in the LR. One dedicated to the Tivo. After reading everything here recently, I decided to go out and get an R-10. I didn't need installation and couldn't wait any longer so just went out and picked one up. I turned off both LR tuners and connected both lines to the R-10. By taking off both, I saved the extra $5 on a second tuner, then by adding the DVR, I tacked on $5 - braking even. Then by stopping the SA TiVo's monthly subscription, I will basically have the R-10 paid off in less then a year and have less bills. Can't lose!!! BTW, I'm very happy with the R-10. Sorry for the run-on. Thanks again!
This is not exactly true. All TIVo units have the 30 second skip turned off by default. You have to active it allways through backdoor codes.
Is anyone selling the R-10 for $49 for existing DirecTiVo customers?
The 30 second skip is turned on while you playback something previously recorded by pressing play-select-3-0-select. You should hear three beeps if you did it right.
It is off by default, and if your TiVo reboots you will have to enter it again.
Edit: I got it wrong, it's select-play-select-3-0-select.
