    I am noticing quite a bit more skipping and actual drop outs since I started paying for it. Running on my own wireless N network. Ran the BETA without issue.

    Being on DECA, I haven't had these at all.

    I still have my two HR20's hard-wired to my wired/wirelless 'N' network for now (will convert to DECA eventually) and have had no issues at all since the beta ended.

    I was ethernet during the beta then rolled over to DECA, I haven't noticed any problems since the beta ended.

    I went DECA as well so can't say I have. Is one of your receivers connected to a WET610N?

    I went from ethernet to diy deca and have not had any problems at all. It seems to run better now.

    I know people don't want to hear this, but I'll say it again .. Wireless & Powerline are NOT good choices for MRV. If they happen to work for you, Great! Count yourself lucky. But the reliability and quality of the connection is very much hit or miss.

    Even in a working wireless configuration, your environment may change (perhaps a neighbor buys a new 'N' Router that starts to "compete" with yours in RF). For anything close to reliable you should choose DECA or Wired Ethernet with DECA getting the edge due to it being optimized for MRV.

    I have had what appears to be HR24 specific issues with pad from a show recorded on an HR24 not showing up on my other DVR's. Aside from that, MRV/DECA has been awesome. There are several other HR24 specific issues that aren't MRV related, hopefully they will get fixed and well start to see more MRV features.... like recording conflict manager across multiple DVR's and a master multi-DVR Todo list.

    Mixed DECA/ethernet implementation here and haven't had a problem at all.

    I haven't had them on my Ethernet setup either. I do know this: I spent about $80-90 on a wireless adapter and it's sitting on a shelf collecting dust.

    I have the same type of setup and I think it's better than it was in beta.

    I had a few, ( once a minute continuously?) primarily "playback failed" messages from the HR24 to the H24. Stuttering, freezing, video drop out.

    First, I forced the newest software on the HR24---which should have already been there, since the install occurred after the date of release.

    Then, I unplugged every piece of DTV equipment in the house and left for two hours. When I reconnected everything I had to do a reset on the H24.

    Then, this morning, there was a new software download for the H24 (also on the HR21-200).

    Following these events, I'd say, 99% of all issues are resolved. The system has a little delay in trick play. I needed to make some minor changes in my DIR-655 to get Network service to work. The original installer inadvertently attached the powered DECA to a dead cable. It had been a long day.

    i am still on a wired ethernet setup and it works fine but one of my HR20-700's now reboots on it's own at least once a day. I think the hard drive is failing because I've had issues with recorded material on it before I entered the MRV beta but they think the ethernet setup is the problem. Sending a tech tomorrow to look at it.

    I'm on DECA and Whole-Home DVR Service (MRV) has been flawless.

    Same here. I had 5 ethernet connected boxes during the beta, and now have 7 DECA-connected boxes. Both set-ups worked equally well and bug-free.

    Deca here. Mrv has worked much better for hd content. Use to get pixellation and audio drops using wireless.
