HR24 dvr for direct tv
« on: April 08, 2023, 11:34:02 pm »
  We had an H24 Direct TV receiver installed in our PC in late March for a trip to AZ to help an ill family member. Install Tech said we. Could not have a dvr because "they don't do those any more". After arriving in AZ and finally getting the H24 working with mostly non-HD (a work in progress) but getting local channels..ultimately extracted from the helpful Loyalty person that only the HR24 will work and they don't have them in stock any more. She said if I had the HR24 from our previous MH I could use that. But DTV made me return it when we sold that unit..argh.

  Anyway,bI plan to purchase a unit on eBay or whatever. I see HR24-100 and HR24-500. Any difference between them or just DTV updated model numbers?

Thanks,

Hank

Hank, I'm not that knowledgeable on DirecTV components.  However, I did a quick search on the internet and from what I can find the last number indicates the manufacturer.  I didn't know it, but evidently DirecTV has the same receiver manufactured by a variety of companies. The statement is that "They give the manufacturers a set of specifications and they make the units."'
Here is one list that I located that is supposed to be the manufacturer code:
-100 Thomson
-200 Samsung
-300 Philips
-400 Hughes
-500 Humax
-600 LG
-700 Pace
-800 NEC
I don't know whether you checked with Winegard?  That's where I bought my HR24--but I don't see one listed on their site now (they list the H24).  They were helpful in consulting and providing advice on my setup when I contacted them.  Another company which sells receivers and provides consultations is Solid Signal.  I've never talked with them, but they have a reputation as being knowledgeable and helpful.  They currently have HR24s listed as available.  They offer a phone number to consult with their "DirecTV Experts".

I've got an HR-24 I don't use anymore, but so far I can't find the remote?

You can have it for $10 plus the shipping.

I appreciate the offer but DTV is finally sending me an HR24-500 arriving Monday. Thanks.
