it will take a while for that because i will need an hdtv upstairs to see if the 6400 will show the hd channels. the hd channels are the issue, many won't lock. i also ran another check switch and it went back to saying their are 3 ports. i then had to repeat the previous steps to get it to show the sw21 again. maybe i will buy a new lnbf to replace the current 82. it's little grey roof is chipped off. the power surge that ruined my switches a while ago may have gotten into it as well. i guess that's two reasons to change the lnbf then.
will this have any benefit? do the channels change faster or is the reception better? it took me an hour in the cold to change those switches, i'd rather not render them obsolete unless there is a strong benefit.
Hello, new to the forum. I have a G2 6400 that I purchased about a year ago, the problem I have is the guide only goes 3 days ahead and no more. Is this correct for the 6400 or is there a problem. Contacted bell and they replaced the unit but It also has the same issue, am I missing something here. To me this seems useless if I'm going to hookup a hard drive and turn it into a pvr. Thank you for your time.
I have the same receiver with a hard drive hooked up to it and I get a programming guide for about 9 days. Only one program can be recorded at a time. You can't watch one program and record another program with this receiver.
If that's the case, it's funny that Bell couldn't tell me that in the first place, instead of replacing the original 6400 when really there was nothing wrong.
I do have a 9400 also. I think I will hookup an external drive and turn it into a pvr.
Hey guys. I'm a newbie and I apologize if it's been repeated. I've tried looking through multiple threads and there seems to be to much stuff to read through. I have two HD receivers 6131 and 6400. I currently dual LNBs outside with two wires coming into the house. One wire is hooked into a SW21 switch and the other wire is for my second receiver i just bought. The guy at the store gave me a SW44 switch. Will it work for 2 standard hd receivers with no PVR?
Can I remove the existing SW21 switch and installed the SW44 switch and have two wires coming out of the SW44 switch? I'm assuming I'll still have to run one wire through the wall transformer power supply??
