The New H25 IRD



The H25 is a smaller HD Receiver designed to work on SWiM networks only.

The reduced size allows more flexibility when choosing the location of the unit in a customer’s home or business.

The H25 Receiver is compatible with high-definition TVs with HDMI and capable of 1080p and 3D, including models from these manufacturers: Hitachi, LG, Mitsubishi, Panasonic, Philips, Pioneer, Samsung, Sony, Sharp, Toshiba, Vizio, Westinghouse.


Additionally, the H25 Receiver has an AMC satellite tuner capable of receiving both DIRECTV legacy and A3 transmissions.

New Features and Accessories Include:
• Push button front panel
• Single composite A/V (RCA Type) out
Combo component/composite out mini-DIN-10 (optional)

External power supply (The H25 uses a DIRECTV EPS10 series external power supply)
SWiM only SAT-IN Tuner
Optional wall/TV mounting bracket. Customers can purchase the H25 wall mount separately, availability TBD.

The H25 wall mount provides a simple, convenient way for the “customer” (not the technician) to attach the H25 to a wall near the TV. The wall mount improves many typical connectivity and location issues such as:
• Stacked components on IRD causing overheat problems
• Damage to IRD due to liquid or foreign object intrusion
• Loose cabling due to frequent moving of the IRD

An RF remote and external RF dongle will be made available at a future TBD time.
