DirecTV HR21 to 2 TVs

07 April 2014 - 11:30 AM

A friend of mine in a park model has a HR-21 receiver that he has connected to an HD TV in his park model.


However, he has a HD flat screen on his porch that he also wants to connect to this receiver.


Plus, he wants to use RG6 coax to connect his HR-21 to the outside TV and still get HD on both TVs. He doesn't care if both TVs display the same programming.


Possible or . . . other options?



ACA Plans -- Multi-State vs "National Provider Network"

19 March 2014 - 12:51 PM

Both myself & wife are under 65 and are on my COBRA this year. Next year I'm on Medicare, but the Mrs has about 2 more years -- so it's ACA time.
We're window shopping for ACA plans now in WI (current domicile) and AZ (possible future domicile) and would like a multi-state plan, but they're pricey. Here's the cheapest WI multi-state plan (AZ has none). I updated the graphic below because of some "interesting" language I found (circled):
However, I came across what looked like a multi-state plan because it described itself as "National provider network":



But an email from the provider, Common Ground, indicated that they have a WI only network.


The devil is in the details.

Millenicom's MiFi Hotspot Device

11 March 2014 - 06:44 PM

Does Millenicom use Verizon's MiFi 2200 for their $69.99 per month Hotspot device?


If so, it appears that the 2200 only supports 5 connections (as opposed to 10 for my 4620LE). What a deal.
