  1. I did. I'll send you a PM with the information.
  2. I'm considering updating my DirecTV system from DVRs to the new HS-17 (Genie 2) with the C61K clients. Does anyone know if new drivers are required or would the drivers for the DirecTV HR54 likely work? My current DVRs are connected via IR bugs. HC-800 controller. Thank you.
  3. I would appreciate suggestions for a good local integrator in the Washington, DC area. I live in MD but am very close to Washington DC and Northern VA. I already have a Control4 system but will be looking to upgrade the system in the near future. I will need a local dealer for that upgrade but most of my other work can be done remotely. I would particularly like to hear from system owners who are happy with their dealer in this area. Please PM me off-line. Thank you.
  4. This is a bit of a strange issue but let me try to explain. I have 4 TVs. 3 connected via Component and 1 via HDMI (through an HMDI extender over Cat 5e and HDMI baluns). In my rack, I have 3 DirecTV DVRs (Sat1, Sat2, Sat3) and 2 Blu Ray players (BluRay1, BluRay2) all connected with both component and HDMI cables. Component goes into a component switch and HDMI goes into an Onkyo receiver. If I'm watching a DirecTV recording (on Sat2 for example) on a component TV with the HDMI TV off, everything is fine. However, when I turn on the HDMI TV (to Sat1 in this example), the Component TV showing Sat2 starts flickering (turns black every few seconds). If I switch the HDMI TV to Sat2, the flickering stops on the Component TV. So, when both the HDMI TV and a Component TV are on at the same time, the Component TV flickers unless the HDMI TV has the same source active. It's not a DirecTV issue because the same thing happens on the BluRays. If I'm watching an Amazon video on BluRay1 on A Component TV with the HDMI TV off, it is fine. As soon as I turn on the HDMI TV to any source other than BluRay1, the Component TV starts flickering. I can't figure out why the HDMI setup is somehow impacting what is going through the Component Switch. It's not a major issue since there is a workaround but it is a bit of an annoyance. Eventually I will move to all HDMI but those HDMI switches are expensive. Any suggestions on this issue would be appreciated.
  5. Thank you. If I have multiple DirecTV boxes each using a different HDMI port on the audio receiver, would I need 3 hdmi splitters or can I install one splitter near the TV beyond the HDMI balun? I'm considering the following splitter. I don't think it is autosensing. http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=101&cp_id=10113&cs_id=1011306&p_id=7522&seq=1&format=2
  6. I have the issue described above but I have a mixed configuration. I am still on a Component switch but I also have a direct HDMI connection from my rack to my main TV over CAT 5E (HDMI cables going from the DirecTV box through a audio receiver and a HDMI Balun by my main TV). Because of that setup, I use both the component and HDMI outputs on my DirecTV boxes. Whem my main TV (or audio receiver) in on (via HDMI), I have no issues with the TVs connected through Compoennt. However, when the main TV and receiver are off, the TVs connected via Component display the HDCP error and I can't watch the majority of the DirecTV channels. I know I need to move to a HDMI switch but that is costly. Is there any way to install a powered HDMI splitter or something to get around this issue in the short term? I don't want to have the TV and/or audio receiver on 24x7 for many reasons. Thank you.
  7. Does that Model # fit the HC-200 as well? If not, does anyone know the model # for a HC-200 power supply and where to purchase them? Thank you.
