Sony Sat HD100 advice.

693 Views 8 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Art Lloyd
I can't seem to get SHOH on my HD100. The numbers look good. DTV says that they have done their part. Is there something that I don't know about the HD100? Are other people with this STB getting SHOH without problem? Is there some kind of incantation? Art

Have you done the obvious things like reset your system for 3 LNBs and gotten a good signal on Sat C?
I get ShowHD just fine on my HD100. Make sure you have the oval 3-sat option selected in the menu. When I installed my sat c kit and selected the 3-sat ShowHD showed up automatically with out even having to do a channel rescan.

My HD100 is working flawlessly with SHOHD. Came in immediately after installing sat-c kit and changing setup to 3-sat mode with no reboot needed.
Thanks, guys. Yes, I have good numbers on all of the sats and all of the transponders. I just can't get 543. Black screen after the banner for Shoh. I have done all manner of resets, etc. I can't imagine anything that would prevent 543 in the Sony box. DTV offers no help. Damn. Art
Got mine installed yesterday - worked fine "out of the box".

Call DirecTV and make sure:

* They have your proper receiver model noted

* They have the "HDTV" option enabled for your account

* They have the "SHOH" option enabled for your account

If you are getting good signal strength on 110 then [[your not going to like this] you are going to have to keep calling until you get the right person, and when you do it will come on. I had rather talk to a tree than call these people.

See my private message response. I can bring my STB over tomorrow after work or over the weekend. I hope you can solve this problem before the HD presentation of Apocalypse Now Redux on Saturday.

Thanks, Andrew. I will call you.

Trich, I could not agree more.

Hey, what if I just dropped the whole DTV thing for a few hours and then reinstituted it? Maybe that would shake it loose. Art
