    It is a switch, sorry for the confusion.

    The switch "should be" alright, but you might want to try taking the DECA from a H23 and connect it to the DVR, and then go to the H23 that still has a DECA and see how that works.

    Sigma,
    My current setup:
    HDTV1: Connected to 1st HR20-700 (controlled by RF)
    HDTV2: Connected to 2nd HR20-700 and Connected to 1st HR20-700 via SD Cable Coax (controlled by RF)
    SDTV1: Connected to 1st HR20-700 via SD Cable Coax

    Dish: 5-lnb, 2 cables to both my HR20-700's
    Internet: 1st HR20 is hard wired to my router. 2nd HR20 connects thru the Linksys wireless bridge

    -----------------
    I'm thinking I'd need another receiver for my SDTV, right?

    What type of DECA would I need? I'd also probably need a SWiM, right?

    THANK YOU!

    Thanks for all your advice!

    SDTV1 could stay the way it's connected, or have a HD receiver [non DVR] added to it.
    DECA is only one flavor.
    SWiM needs to be added for the DECA band to be freed up.
