    Ok... not sure what the deal is but my issues seem straightened out. Single wire, and I'm able to record 2 shows on one HR24, 1 on the other, and 5 on my HR34. So that's right. I still might call and ask them to upgrade me.

    He didn't even get the HR34 new deal. I believe he only getting $200 instead of the $300 off the HR34.

    If a new customer orders an HR34 and an HD DVR, the discount/credit is $300 off of the HR34 and $100 off of the HD DVR. I think that's why F1 Fan got a $200 credit, having already received a $199 credit for the HR24 on the initial install.

    My remote was in the HR34 box. Along with a bunch of connecting cables.

    Have you set the boxes to have static IP's? I set mine outside of my router's DHCP range and have not had a problem since.

    Just got this email from Robert at VE.

    Hello,

    Thanks for placing your order with us and please contact me anytime I can be of any help with any of your a/v needs or questions.

    Happy holidays!

    Correct.

    Except after working it out I did better by $99.

    I originally ordered an HR24 and 3 H25s for $0.

    I will have an HR34, and HR24 and 3H25s. If I ordered that online it would be $99 (34) + $99 (24) + $99 (1 H25) as you get 4 receivers not 5.

    So that should be $298 and I am paying $199.

    Thanks sipester, I didn't know that about the C30. I'm thinking now I'll just get the HR34, keep the HDDVRs and wait for the C30.

    Thats the way I would do it with what you have already. lowest cost and room for flexibility in the future.

    Got my HR34 and 3 H25's installed today. Everything went well and all are working as expected.
    Software is 0x4c4
    The only problem I am having is I can't connect to the HR34 with the iPad app. All the H25's show up in the app but the HR34 will not.

    Stuart posted earlier that you need to have the HR34 on and not in standby the first time you start the ipad app. Then it should find it and work ok after that

    I have the HR34 on and even recording when I start the iPad app. I have deleted the iPad app and reinstalled. Both the iPad and the HR34 are on the same subnet. I can see and control the other three H25's but nada on the HR34.

    Thanks, here's my setup. I currently have SWM16 with 4 HR24's and 1 H25. Please let me know which cables I should switch around to make room for the HR34.

    What's on your splitter onthe right? The one with two cables? Is it a hr24 and and an h25? If so, you can hook up yourhr34 to that splitter and your set. If not, move one of those cables to the other splitter, and then hook up your hr34 to it. The key is to not have more than 8 tuners per side on the swim16.

    Splitter on the right has 2 HR24s. Left splitter 2 HR24s and the H25.

    So if I put 3 HR24s and the H25 on one splitter and the HR34 and 1 HR24 on the other that should be okay?

    Thanks for the help.

    Yes. The first leg would have 7 tuners (3 x 2 per HR24 = 6 + 1 for the H25 =7). The second leg would have 7 as well (1 x 5 for the HR34 = 5 + 2 for the HR24 = 7). You'll have 14 active tuners, and room to add 2 more single-tuner receivers (one on each leg).

    You could rearrange things for a bit more flexibility. Move all four HR24's to one leg, using all 8 available tuners. That would leave the HR34 and the H25 on the other leg, using 6 tuners. That would allow you to connect another 2 tuner DVR if you ever want or need to do that, or two single-tuner DVRs on that leg.

    Yep, the key is no more then 8 tuners on 1 side of the SWiM-16.

    3 HR24s would be 6 plus 1 H25 is a total of 7.

    1 HR34 would be 5 plus 1 HR24 is a total of 7.
