Is your dealer Robert?
Come on ROBERTO.
Bring it baby..................
So you're saying you don't need a DECA unit, you can just run a CAT5 cable from your router to the HR34 and it will act like a DECA unit?
Okay. Now I am a bit confused. If a plugged-in ethernet cable does not disable the built-in DECA of the HR34, then what is the function/purpose of the ethernet jack on it? Internet Only?
I understand that on a HR24, for example, a plugged-in ethernet jack disables the DECA on the unit and MRV and/or internet is possible through an ethernet connection.
As for a H25, which is SWM Only, there is no ethernet jack, so the only way to connect to the internet is through the use of a BB DECA or WDCCK.
So with a HR34 (to have MRV and/or internet capability), must it be hooked up the same way a H25 is? ie via SWM and BB DECA or WDCCK.
Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.
I have an HR34 on the way and I want to make sure I am understanding fully how to incorporate it into my Hybrid DECA/Ethernet setup. (for details of setup, see sig below)
I asked this question early on. The ethernet jack is bridged to the DECA. Anything on the DECA side will see anything on the ethernet side, and vice versa. The "full" purpose of the ethernet jack is likely to add ethernet RVU devices if/when they're available.
Shoot, I should have gone with Robert...hoping Solid Signal won't be too far behind.
So I could just plug the ethernet port into my router for the internet connection instead of using a dedicated DECA module plugged into the splitter?
I believe Stuart said that this wasn't the intended functionality, but I've been told that this does work.
Ok, I am not going to read thorough all this thread. Do we know for sure what the monthly cost is going to be for an hr34?
Went live overnight.
You can purchase an HR34 now at Solid Signal.
It should follow the standard DIRECTV pricing model with $10 HD Access, $7 DVR service, $3 WHDVR service, and $6 each room after the first for any type of client.
You can also buy it now when your sign up now as a new customer for $99 on Dtv website.
Is your dealer shipping them? I know VE just drop ships them from the warehouse.
Why does Solid Signal say "Usually Ships 7-12 Business Days" . They've never sold them before so how can that be "usual"? Do they not have them in stock yet?
Ahh the wonderful business model of treating long-time, loyal customers like dirt and new customer like royalty!
Solid Signal has been selling receivers for years, I'm sure they have a usual shipping time.
When I ordered an HR 24 from SS earlier this year, it was shipped the next day. I had it in my house the day after it shipped, and it was activated 10 minutes after I took it out of its box.
That's my point - when I have ordered stuff from SS before, they shipped same day so not sure why they are saying the the 7-12 business day caveat.
