    HR34=5 tuners
    SD DVR-HR20-24+=2 tuners
    SD receviver -HD REceiver =1 tuner

    Switch ports only needed to make connections of total numbers of receivers + BBdeca.

    I believe you are referring to the "H25" and "H24" HD client boxes, no DVR involved with these. The H25 is almost half the size of the H24, it has an external power adapter, and it does not have the little LED showing the current resolution.

    I recently ordered a HR-34 from SS (not delivered yet). Was wondering if someone could tell me if I need additional equipment:

    Current setup:

    HR24-500
    HR20-700
    SWiM8 (not green label)
    PI (not green label)
    SL-5 with 4 coax cables into the SWiM8
    WHDVR unsupported via CAT5

    I am willing to run my HR20 on 1 tuner (to keep the count at 8).

    Do I need any DECA modules? Or a Green Label SWiM8? What about an internet connection kit?

    I have had DirecTV service since 2000. Been out of contract since 2008.

    Thanks in advance for any help...

    There are no HR25! You must mean H25.

    SWiM-16. The cheapest route is DirecTV. It's FREE, but comes with $49.99 Service charge, which can be credited back.

    Once you get a delivery date from VE FedEx, call DirecTV to schedule a date.

    BTW, getting a leased HMC puts you back under contract.

    But in will I have any issues adding the HR34 with my current setup? Until DirecTV comes out with the SWiM16?

    None. Only that a tuner in the HR34 wont load.
