DIRECTV 4K Upgrades for DIYers


Signal Connect 4K TV

Go 4K with Signal Connect Today!

Upgrading to DIRECTV 4K is something for only the most serious do-it-yourselfer. Or is it? If 4K programming is in your future, Signal Connect can save you some time. We’re a DIRECTV Authorized Dealer, so we know all about this conversion. Here are some helpful 4K conversion tips courtesy of Signal Connect.

A 4K Upgrade is an Equipment Upgrade

If you want 4K programming, you need the DIRECTV HR54 Genie DVR or DIRECTV HS17 Genie 2 Server, along with a 4K DIRECTV Genie Mini Client or DIRECTV 4K Ready TV. Older equipment can’t see or record 4K programs. This equipment also allows you to record up to seven shows at once, then enjoy them in any room. When you add 4K programming to your satellite system, you have the best that DIRECTV has to offer!

DIRECTV 4K, Your TV and You

If you’re planning a 4K upgrade, you need to know if your current TV will support it. Many new 4K TVs are “DIRECTV 4K ready,” meaning that connecting them to your existing coax cable network will let you watch DIRECTV’s 4K programs. If you have a Smart TV from LG, Samsung or Sony, this chart will help determine if your set is 4K compatible.

Signal Connect DIRECTV C61K 4K Genie Mini

DIRECTV 4K Genie Mini Client

Not all Smart TVs are 4K-ready. The DIRECTV 4K Genie Mini Client solves this issue. When used in conjunction with the DIRECTV HR54 Genie DVR, the Mini Client delivers 4K, HD, and SD content to a 4K TV. If your Smart TV isn’t 4K-ready, upgrade it with the Genie Mini Client from Signal Connect. High-definition 4K programming requires a HDMI port that supports HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2. You also need a high-speed HDMI cable to make the connection. Some Smart TVs already can handle the 4K signal.

Signal Connect DIRECTV 4K4K Programming Packages

DIRECTV offers 4K programming on three channels. These are available on its Premier and Ultimate programming packages. No other cable or satellite provider has even one 4K channel! As a DIRECTV-authorized dealer, Signal Connect can sign you up today. You didn’t expect to do everything yourself, did you?

“What About My Dish?”

Upgrading to 4K will require some new equipment, but if you have an existing Slimline dish (the oval-shaped dish used for HD) it’s as easy as changing out the LND on the front. Add the Reverse Band 3 LNB for full compatibility with 4K services for today and tomorrow. It supports Genie and Genie 2 DVRs.
