B-band converter. Useful only with a multisat dish. No HD with an 18" dish.
Called last nite and asked for a supervisor, got someont titled retention specialist, whatever.
The good thing is she gave me the new TIVO for $118 plus shipping,
I will install it using my 18" dish and if I don't get HD no problem. She claimed thet I wouldn't get charged the $10/month HD fee.
Right. No HiDef channels with that dish. You'll need a SlimLine dish for that.
That's fine with me, I'll save $120/ year.
THis is where my knowledge of satellites end. Don't even know which satellite my dish is pointing at. Could a slimline dish recieve signals from the same satellite as my 18" dish?
DirectV will send our the receiver with an installer and they will install a new dish
That's not what I understood durring my call. DTV said they are sending the TIVO for me to install. Either that or the install is free as they only charged me about 126 including shipping.
I still say that I can't see the new satellites.
If I would upgrade to HD on 1 of my receivers would my older Tivo HDVR2 units still work with SD. I would like to upgrade on 1 or 2 of my units but I don't want to lose my other owned units and my only 1 time mirroring charge that I currently pay. I have talked to 2 different DTV reps and have been given 2 different answers.
Another question which should probably be posted in another area. I have 4 extra Tivo units on my account with only 1 of them using both tuners. I have an 8 way switch to split the signals but 2 of the splits have quit working. My question is what is this splitter called and can someone suggest a good one to purchase? A 10 or 12 split would be ok if they make them.
Thanks for your help
I got it yesterday.
Will attempt to install it later this week.
Yes, another question. Which wireless network adapter will work.
I have some usb adapters that the manual says will not work.
The THR22 HD Tivo does not support USB wireless network adapters. You need an ethernet based "gaming adapter".
A what? My issue is I have 2 tivo's, one a HD for my local channels. Both will accept a connection to my home network but I only have one network connection on the wall.
Would an ethernet switch or hub work? Do they all need to be powered? as I am also running short of power outlets.
A four or five port switch would work perfectly. I believe they are all powered.
Something like this may also work.
Wifey got some 10/100 stwitches from Woot, guess I'll give one a shot.
You asked about wireless. If you have a wired ethernet cable at your THR22 location, then just get an ethernet switch. You don't need wireless. Yes, an ethernet switch needs its own power.
Yes I did ask about wireless. But then I remembered i networked my other Tivo. That cable is connected to my router. Would a switch on this cable ( one to my present Tivo) "confuse" the router?
No, it would be fine.
