Can you use a Ethernet splitter to divide a PC and directv HD receiver on a single port modem to use both computer and directv on demand?
To use DIRECTV on demand and other connected features, an HD DVR would need to be connected via an Ethernet Cable in parallel with other networked devices into a router then to your modem. If you have Whole Home DVR service with DIRECTV then you'll need a Cinema Connection Kit otherwise you may have issues using your internet and whole home dvr services. Cinema Connection Kits come in wired and wireless options.

"Make My Day" by artsist: Waldeck I believe is the song youre referring to. Nice beat. Took me a couple days to find it.
Can you use both USB and Ethernet for a single PC at a time from your modem what happens if you connect both to home PC which connection is best for you in all aspects like virus security speed etc?
Ethernet provides a much faster transfer rate. For normal internet services like DSL and cable, you wont see a difference between USB and ethernet. Ethernet is good if you have more than one computer networked and youre transfering data between the computers. As far as Virus protection goes, that al…l depends on the anti-virus software youre using, not the type of connection youre using. If youre wanting to make your downloads faster by connecting both USB and ethernet from the same modem, it won't work. You can, however, use 2 different internet providers and bridge the two connections together. (MORE)

Unless your DirecTV receiver has a composite (analog) output of some type, like a component level or RF level, it'd be a waste of time because the signals aren't compatible.Connect your VCR to the a/v outputs on the DirecTV box.
SOLUTION: Ok... I HAD the same problem... Direct TV Remote wouldn't work with Olevia TV despite ANY codes that Direct TV or anybody replying to solution forums say they are. I DID find a solution though! Use the Remote's Code search function, BUT SKIP the first code that turns off the TV... CONTINUE… to press the Channel + button after manually turning the TV back on after the first successful code that turns off the TV. This is the ONLY solution that I have found that works and I haven't seen it posted on any solution site. TRY IT.. BET IT WORKS FOR YOU AS WELL! (If not, skip the 2nd code as well... Olevia HAD to have copied a major brand-name's remote code scheme because all the generic TV manufacturers end up copying a known companies' setup... but a LOT of them neglect to tell you which brand they copied... I have owned many generic TV's that I couldn't get codes for for many remotes through the past 35 years... and this has been the case on ALL OF THEM!) Keep this in mind when you think you can't get a remote to control basic functionality with ANY TV and ANY remote. (MORE)
What kind of Ethernet cable do i need for an xbox to cable modem connection if i am using a usb to connect the modem to my PC?
is it a straight ethernet or a crossover? i am using a Motorola SURFboard SB5120. You'll only need a straight ethernet cable for that.
First, connect the Macintosh computer to an available WIRED Ethernet jack. Then, connect your Directv HD DVR to an available Ethernet jack near it. Then go into the Directv menu, select Setup, then network. Go to advanced set up. Key in you IP Address info and click continue or connect now. Your HD …DVR and mac are now sharing files with each other. (MORE)
Just to clarify on the answers given. The LNBs are different for DISH Network and DTV along with the receivers. The LNB and receiver takes the signal from the satellite and gives you your signal on your TV. As stated, you can't use different receivers and LNB from different companies. The dish outsi…de does not matter, just the LNB and receiver. Simply, no. The satellite dishes use different switching schemes internally for accessing the satellite transponders. Bull....loney. I'm using an old 18" DirecTv dish to receive signals from a Dishnetworks satellite at 119W. The satellite receivers will be different because different signalling protocols are used. (MORE)
A practical use for entertainment could be to use some features with MediaShare, built in OTA antenna tuner, and running "TV apps". All of this is built in to newer receivers.
Directv single LNB antenna you have 2 receivers with different accounts you would like to hook them both to a splitter so that you could choose which one would control the satellite?
You don't control the satellite by the receiver in your home. The satellite is controlled by a the satellite operator which sends telemetry commands up to the satellite using a large dish antenna. I think what you mean is: how can I use both receivers with a single LNB? What you need is a spli…tter that will take the signal from the LNB and give two outputs to feed into the receiver boxes. That is a 1 to 2 way splitter. I can talk to you from a technical perspective as I am a qualified Electronics Engineer, but you will need to locate a splitter device yourself. If you use what is known as a passive splitter, this does not require any power. But, what it does, is to take the single, and divide it into two signals, this wil reduce the signal strength going to each receiver by half. This might be a problem. The RF signals are quite weak, and the question is, can your receivers accommodate a signal that is half the strength it was before. There can also be interference generated as you watch one channel on one receiver and another channel on the second receiver. Ideally, what you need is an active splitter, or distribution amplifier. An active splitter, or distribution amplifier will take the signal from the LNB, split it and amplify it so that the strength of the signal being fed to the outputs remains the same as the signal coming into the input from the LNB. These are readily available for terrestrial television and you should be able to find them for the much higher frequency satellite signals. The signal coming down from the LNB is often referred to as IF for Intermediate Frequency. The very high frequency signal being received by the dish antenna is difficult to transmit over any length down a cable, so what they do is convert the frequency down to a much lower frequency which is easier to handle and distribute down a cable, this is the IF signal. So what you should be looking for is an IF Distribution amplifier , or IF active splitter. As the unit has to amplfy the signal, it will require a power source. It is good practice to place the active splitter/distribution amplifier close to the LNB to reduce the length of cable from the LNB to the distribution amplifier which will prevent the signal degrading too much. A very detailed explanation with a lot of techical terminology, but hopefully this will set you on your way to locating the type of splitter/distribution amplifier you need. (MORE)
The following explaination is all well and good, but the main reason that you can't use a single LNB by itself and connect two receivers together to it is because the LNB switches between either the horizontal or vertical polarity by voltages supplied by the receiver. \n. \nWhat you need is a spli…tter that will take the signal from the LNB and give two outputs to feed into the receiver boxes.

A switch or hub is used to connect multiple devices to a modem. Hubs have largely fallen out of use due to their bandwidth-sharing properties that make them undesirable in high-speed local networks.
Currently, you cannot, but it is coming and will arrive in arround mid-2009. Hope this helps.
\nIt's in the user menu that you can access with your remote. It's one of the options, once you select the right menu heading.\n. \nHaven't had Direct for several years, but I remember them having it back then and my current Dish unit has it available also.
The switch learns the MAC address of the device connected to a port during port initialization. It will then send data out the port based upon the destination MAC address as specified the the packet header.
DirecTV does and has far more bandwidth to add HD channels. (remember DirecTV is transmitting local stations for like 50 markets in the US, at 4 per city, that alone is 200 channels they have up and going so can they count that?). They can put up more satellites, but Cable is always limited by the b…andwidth of the coax cable.. Comcast claims they have more "HD programming" because they include their OnDemand HD content, most of which is crap. But because they have 15 or so HD channels (including locals here) and have 285 crappy OnDemand HD programs (including PPV) they claim this absurd number of "HD Programming".. DirecTV doesn't claim the most "HD programming", they claim the most "HD Channels". Also, for like $104 a month you can have every channel they have except PPV and their DVR service. How much is it for Comcast to have all their premiums except PPV? DirecTV has their prices on their website. Comcast doesn't and wants to "talk" before they disclose their rates and fees, and equipment rental.. So take your pick, more HD content available to you at one given time, or actual HD channels such as TNTHD and UniversalHD (you can get HD lineup printouts from your cable co, and DirecTV and compare for yourself).. DishNet is an up and comer though. They have been slow to get going on HD content, but I think they will be right in the mix or could be better. You can view what HD channels they offer at their website as well. (MORE)
In the past external modems connected to the COM (or serial) port. However, most modern external hardware is USB these days, modems are no exception.
No, Directv programming signals are very different than a standard cable broadcast. Directv signals are sent using positive and negative charges to decode the signal.
Serial and USB ports are most often used to connect an external modem to a PC.
\nA router or possibly a data switch can connect two PC's to a DSL or cable modem.
Yes the switch is called a router and it can be wireless or wired with ethernet cables. I use my wireless router as a wired router because it also includes four ethernet cable connections in the back.
hard reset is to unplug the reciver from power source. wait 3 min replug it in.
yeah why not. you can use your computer as a wireless modem if you have a wireless router
Hi! I happened to run across your question just wanted to provide some clarification & confirm a DirecTV satellite dish will not work with our DISH Network programming, the alignment of the dish is different because our DISH Network programming is shown using different satellite orbital's than Direc…TV's. I hope this answers your question or helps! -Kirstie DISH Network Kirstie, We're only talking about the dish and associated hardware and not the receiver. The DirectTV satellite dish will work with the Dish receiver when the dish is properly oriented to the satellite that Dish Network is transmitting from. Skirmit (MORE)
A switch is typically used to connect multiple computers in a single residential unit to a modem.
First, it should be noted that all receivers are leased (even those gotten from Best Buy or Costco). The "Lease/Equipment Upgrade Fee" is generally $99 for an HD Receiver and $199 for an HD DVR from Directv themselves (not counting install or delivery & handling). That being said, depending on promo…tions running in a given month or whether or not you are an existing customer can change this pricing. (MORE)
There is a signal meter built into the receiver. Just follow the instructions on the installation menu.
as far as i know, no they dont. but a cheap/common router is the lynksys wrt54g/gs and they will allow you to add up to 4 wired computers, plus wireless computers. they can be had for about $30 online
in almost all areas you can get hd it requires a multi position dish for example slimline dish. in my area.
Call 800.531.5000 and have your account # ready to enter to the prompt. Once a respresentative is with you, they can reset it from their side, or will have a quick work-around to get that resolved.
An Ethernet port is for you to plug in an Ethernet cable. You have your Ethernet cable plug into your Ethernet port and your Modem or Router to give you access to the internet.
The "Ethernet Port" Obviously is used for the Ethernet cable which often connects computers to a router. A router is a device that gets the Internet or from the phone/Internet port and routes it to your computer routers are required for ADSL and ADSL2+ to work. Oftener more than one computer is conn…ected to the router. But this setup may be different for "Cable Internet because i have never had cable. (MORE)
No, each computer must have a different IP address. The IP addresses have to be in the same subnet between themselves, and in the same subnet as the ADSL router (or modem); I won't explain subnets here, but usually having the same numbers for the first 3 parts of the IP address is enough. For exampl…e, if the ADSL router has the IP address 10.0.0.1, your computers might have addresses 10.0.0.2 and 10.0.0.3. If you need to add a third computer, give it the IP address 10.0.0.4 If the first computer has a different IP address - and it works - replace that, instead. For example, if the computer has IP address 172.16.0.2, assign the address 172.16.0.3 to the next computer. (MORE)
My Dish Network receiver is connected to my home LAN and the internet via TCP/IP for remote control of my DVR, on-demand movie downloads, etc. IIRC, there's a place in the Dish OnLine menu to get the receiver to request an IPv4 address from a DHCP server. If there's no IP address, then there's no re…mote control, online movies, etc. I'd bet that DirecTV has a similar setup. (MORE)
If you want to connect two computers together, you do not need a modem for it. If you want to connect two computers together and connect both of them to internet yes you need a modem.
You can use a router, either wired (Ethernet) or wireless to connect two or more computers with a single cable modem. You would need either Category 5, 5e, or Category 6 Ethernet cables to do this. Also, you may set up a wireless Local Area Network (otherwise known as LAN) if your type of router sup…ports that and your computer(s)/devices support it. (MORE)
Well, you may know that USB ports can be used for similar and same purposes as Ethernet. Really, the only hardware need is a converter. Another Answer The Ethernet ports on a computer system are supported by standard TCP/IP protocol layers, while the USB ports are supported by a serial standard.… These are totally different hardware channels. I've never seen such an interface offered, but that certainly doesn't mean it doesn't exist. (MORE)
An ethernet cable splitter is used to reduce the amount of ethernet cable you need when connecting two computer networks or even two computers. An ethernet splitter is not something that allows you to share one Internet connection between two devices.
An ethernet splitter allows you to use one incoming internet line on more than one device. It effectively splits the line in two pieces. This way, you can connect two computers or other devices using one line.
An ethernet cable splitter is used to simplify the amount of ethernet cable needed when connecting more than one computer to a network. Ethernet cable splitters are not needed for only one computer.
yes u can but first u should have a LCD or a led TV and both the laptop and the TV should have a hdmi port. and the television should also have the hdmi feature.
It depends on the Directv model receiver. Some receivers are a about a $100 - $300.
Your laptop, and probably your PC will probably not have 2 Ethernetports to connect two Ethernet cables. It is possible to use bothWiFi and your Ethernet port. It is also possible to add anadditional Ethernet card to a PC or add a USB or PC-card basedEthernet interface. If you did have a machine wit…h two Ethernet ports or wanted to useboth an Ethernet port and a WiFi connection, there is a routingproblem. The system needs to know when to send (route) something tothe internet and when to send it to the other computer (PC ornotebook). You would need to manually assign the default route (forthe internet connection) and with a different network id, assignnetwork IP addresses to the connections between the notebook andthe PC. How this is done depends on the systems you are using. Itis different for Microsoft Windows and Linux implementations andmay even vary depending on the version of Windows. A more practical method is to connect both machines to yourinternet connection, your router. They will be on the same network.They will both be able to access the internet. They will both alsobe able to communicate with each other through the router. Learn how to, or find someone to, configure file sharing on bothmachines and establish which file and/or directories should bevisible to the other machine or machines on your network. If you are using a Unix or Linux version you can still share filesby configuring a program called Samba. You will need do learn howto do it or find someone who already knows how. (MORE)
One can purchase a direct TV HD receiver from the Direct TV official website. At the moment they are available for $99. One can also purchase them from ebay.
You can order a system from DIRECTV at 1-888-777-2454 from 6 am to 3am ET daily. Also you have the possibility to find out if there is an official retailer near you.
since its launch in the united states, TiVo has been made avalaible in Australia, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, Puerto rico, Taiwan, and the united kingdom, newer models, however have adopted CableCard standard
The most significant thing about Direct TV HD service is the quality of the picture. The colors are more in depth, the picture is clearer and less grainy.
Although one can lease a receiver at various locations, you can actually only buy a new DirecTV receiver from DirecTV or very select retailers. Keep in mind though that the cost to purchase will be far greater then leasing however.
As an electronic device, one would be able to purchase a DirecTV HD receiver from either one's local electronics retailer (i.e JB HiFi), local general retailers or through online retailers such as Amazon. In general, it would be advisable to purchase from an online retailer as they often feature re…gular deals that allow the consumer to save money. (MORE)
