TV only will play HD Channels

My new TV will only play HD Channels. Its a Samsung T4665F connected via HDMI to a Directv HR20 HD DVR.

All the HD channels work fine, but anything not HD, will not come in.

Any Ideas?

    Figured it out. I had to disable the 480i and 480p resolutions on the Directv Box.

This must be the setup for your TV box. Contact the support for your TV box.

Normaly, the TV should auto select the proper operation mode.

How to Access Directv Apps?


DIRECTV TV Apps are FREE and easy to use. Just press the

select the app you want, and enjoy! TV Apps require a
broadband-connected HD or HD DVR receiver (models H21 and
higher, models HR20 and higher, and models C31 and higher).

HI Guys. I just upgraded to DirecTV HD-DVR ( I have aHR24-200) installed which is connected via HDMI to my Samsung HD TV. I have a Samsung HT-C550 Digital Home Theater System which is now directly...


You're correct and that is exactly how I always recommend setup (contrary to what the manuals tell you). It makes no sense to me to run any signal through any electronics or interconnections that neither use it nor improve it. Hence, I have NO SOURCE VIDEO going to or through my receiver and NO high end audio going to my TV (which could just as well be a monitor with NO audio capabilities, right)?

Audio electronics should receive the BEST digital audio directly from it's root source.
The TV should receive the BEST video directly from ITS root source.

THAT is why most all high end A/V gear has separate audio and video in/outputs.

If that means you have to make some switching choices when using different sources, oh well. At least you won't have experience potential degradation from multiple hops or have to troubleshoot problems that could be anywhere in that chain.

Why can't i see 1080p programs on my directv hd dvr? The test on the hdr says my receiver doesn't receive 1080p. My tv is a Sharp LC-62C42U which is suppose to receive 1080p!


Your DVR can't detect whether your TV can do HD or not. If the message is stating that your receiver (which is your DVR) can't receive 1080P, then you'll need to contact DirecTV for assistance. You may need to replace your DVR.

Can I take the access card out of a standard Directv satellite receiver and put it in a new Directv HD DVR (HR20-700) without any problems?


You can do that but it still won't work. You have to make the changes with Direct TV in person for them to "authorize" your new receiver. More is needed than just the card.

HDTV goes blank when connected to Fios HD-DVR or Fios DTV recvr.


If you can first connect the Fios box via component and that will rectify the issue and still allow HD. HDMI is funny, if there is anykind of communication issues between the TV or the Fios box you see what happens. You might also call Samsung to see if there is ANY firmware/software updated for your TV specifically to fix such an issue with the Fios/Mortorola connection. If there isn't then the issue is the cable box since the TV works ok on HDMI with other devices.

Direct TV HD Receiver/Recorder codes


Check the Innovage manual for the automatic code search. If it works, you still may not have full control of your HR20. Try to program your Directv remote to operate your components

Tivo and direct tv


No, unfortunately there is not. That tivo only has 1 tuner, so you can only record or watch 1 live program. You can however watch a pre-recorded program while recording a live program. If you have directv, you can step up and get their hr20 dvr. It's not a tivo by any means, but it has 2 tuners so you can record 2 things at once and watch a pre-recorded show. It takes a little while to get used to the interface, but once you get the hang of it, it's pretty straightforward.

You can also get an older DVR w/ tivo (hr10) however, it will not get ANY of the new MPEG4 High Def channels that are out there.

If you have an hdtv, then you really should grab an hr20, give directv customer retention a call and ask what they can do for you. You'll need a new slimline dish and they'll come out install it and everything you need for watching off the new satellites and enjoying the new mpeg4 hd channels (the old hd channels are in mpeg2).

Good luck.

DirectTV Dvr Playback of Recording skipping and locking up reciever forcing Resetof reciever.


Have either of your tried unhooking the HDMI connector if you are using it and try component?

What software are you running on the unit. The HR20-700 and HR20-100 just got a software update that was going to fix this problem w/ the unplayable recordings.

stephnt:
If it is erasing your content that is a good sign of a defective hard drive. These units when they boot up (after a software update) check the hard drive. If they run into a problem (bad sector) they will foolishly erase the hard drive, thus erasing everything you have recorded. If this is your 4th unit, you may want to look at your environment as well (well ventilated, good connections, etc) I'm not saying it couldn't be the unit. It took directv 14 units to get 3 working, and since I've had 2 HR20-700 refurbs that were unstable and were quickly replaced.

It might be in your best interest to invest in an external drive solution for the HR20. I, however, would be calling customer retention and having a calm, but stern chat with them about this.
