    I found a lot of info on B-Band converters but it's all about 6 years old. DTV just sent me a HD Box (H21-200) Mfg Date 10/30/07.

    When I press the (-) button on the remote to my HR24-500 I get a msg that says SWiM Connected and Internet Connected

    Do I still need to use this B-Band converter on the H21??

    Nope.
    Once you go to SWiM you never need a BBC again.

    I noticed that I had a Band Stop Filter on my D12, do I need that with the H21-200?

    That filter was probably installed because you have MRV and the filter kept that signal out of the D12, which is not compatible with MRV. If you do not want MRV with the H21, you should use that filter. If you want to use MRV, you should install a DECA and not use the filter.

    I do have MRV and I don't really care if I have it on the H21-200. So I guess I will use the filter.

    connecting will also block any intenet info if u got a cck connected. mostly that would prevent u from using the tv apps and ordering ppv with the remote since the ird cant do a call back.

    [STRIKE]An H21 and other non-DVR HD receivers does not do TV apps. [/STRIKE] And even with a BSF the H21 can do "callback" through a local phone line connection or possibly by means of the 2.3 MHz SWiM control signal for relay through other SWiM connected H/HR2X receivers with phone or broadband connections.

    Better not tell mine that they don't work, or they might stop.

    Opps, sorry then;

    All HD DVRs here at present, and I thought (wrongly) my H21 didn't do TV apps when I returned it months ago.
