Details about the new DirecTV H24-100

DBSTalk has details on the new DirecTV H24-100. There are a few key features to this receiver has that their current lineup doesn’t. The receiver is only HD, not a DVR, but it has multi-room viewing capabilities. If you have HD DVRs in your house it can pull those recordings. You can read my review on multi-room viewing here. The receiver also has DECA built-in. DECA allows you to send internet over the coax line to the receiver. For houses that don’t have ethernet ran all over this is huge. In order to enjoy multi-room viewing, media streaming and apps these receivers need Internet. The last big improvement is speed. If you have used their current HD DVRs scrolling through the guide can be slow. DBSTalk says the H24 can scroll just as fast as you can click the button. That’s probably because it doesn’t have a hard drive spinning to slow down the data.

I’m not sure when launch is but it should be soon. I’ll probably have to order one to replace my bedroom SD box. The multi-room viewing is seller for me.

I have a new DirecTV H24DP-100 receiver, but cannot receive any (ka band?) HD channels. Do I need to also purchase a broadband converter/filter? I’ve also noticed that i’m not getting the local channels (2 on up) properly (wrong broadcast)

I think you need to pay for the Directv hd signals. Local should be there also. I have new DirecTV h24-100 dvr
Had to pay extra for HD signals…

You do have to pay for HD. You also have to have the b-band converters if you don’t have a SWM (single wire multiswitch). If it’s a new install you probably have a SWM setup. If not DirecTV won’t install it and you need the converters.

You need to checkk if you have a SWIM installation or just a regular Ka/KU. if is a regular Ka/KU you’ll need a BS Filter. To boost the 99 and 103 sat. ((HD Channels)).

i have an h24 100 model but am receiving an error on the screen that indicates a 771a cabling error. I am getting no signal but everthing seems to be hooked up the same. I was given an eight way switch instead of a four way switch and they hooked up a deca awitch but i am reading that the receiver has one built in. Is this correct? If yes,does this mean that i must have one hooked on the sat cable too? confused, any help here would be great.
