    Moving into a new house at the end of the summer and going back to Direct TV then.. Currently planning out the wiring for the entire house.. every room will have 1 coax and 1 Ethernet.. Plan to use DECA for box communication

    Anyone see any issues with the above or below diagram? The C31 Clients will go in 2 Kids Rooms and an office.. So the Clients will only get use at night and the other during the day... H25 in my bedroom and other future bedroom will probably get another H25. 34/44 in the family room

    Main Router and connections will be in the basement so the DECA adaptor will go there and connect

    If this is new construction and you still have an opportunity to change wiring, I would run two coax and two ethernet to each room on opposite walls. That makes furniture rearrangement a whole lot easier. In fact, I would run dual to each side of the room, so two pairs of two.

    But if you are beyond being able to do that, one per will work.

    Also, if you hae the option, run four coax from wherever your 8-way splitter will be out to the dish location. That gives you the option to upgrade in the future to go beyond 8 tuners.

    Cost is too prohibitive to run more than what is going in.... And I can not go in and do it myself otherwise I would. The cable running is a freaking rip off

    I will run the cable out to the Dish so running 4 there is no an issue

    No Issues otherwise though with my planning?

    Homes today need conduits between the basement and the attic.

    Nope, your proposed set up looks fine.

    the whole thing is a racket.. they want 100 per additional cable even if there is a cable being pulled already

    even if you spend $3000 or $5000 to wire the house now, it is a lot cheaper now then after having two tear down walls and such

    I know but we maxed out our budget on making the house as big as possible.. the cable costs are out of pocket also.. not rolled into the mortgage

    I keep reading about not using a separate CCK DECA with a HR34/44. Is it ok to still use a CCK at the splitter to provide network for all? The HR34/44 will not sit near the main router

    Yes, you can use a DECA BB instead of the HR44 built in wireless. as a matter of fact, this will be my preferred method.

    Yes, that's how my HR34-700 is hooked up and would still prefer it if I had the WiFi enabled HR44;

    I'm not using it's internal crossover bridge for internet/home network access, but a wired-CCK coax connected to one of the SWiM-8 splitters on output leg 2 of a SWiM-16.

    Thinking about the Genie and Primetime Pile ups.. Think the Best way to go is a

    Genie
    3-Clients
    1-HDDVR
    1-HD Box

    That would give me 8 tuners total

    Don't know where you are getting 8 tuners from. Even if the HDDVR is a Genie, you would only have 6 tuners as the clients uses the Genie's tuners as they have no tuners of their own

    oopps, since the Genie did not have a "quantity" number next to it, I didn't "see" it


    Genie
    3-Clients No tuners
    1-HDDVR 2 tuners
    1-HD Box 1 tuner

    Why do you need to use a DECA with a HR-44? I plugged a wire directly from my router to the back of the HR-44 and it works fine.

    The TS' HR34/44 is located no where near the router for that;

    See his statement in post #9

    Make sure the unused splitter port is terminated.
