    I am posting this here as I dont publicly have a H24. I am still using Ethernet with no problems but out of curiosity I tried the test screen VOS posted about - http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=177787 When I tried teh network test I got this message:
    Hence?? I dont think I have ever seen that in an on screen message for anything. Also what is DHN? DirecTV home network?

    Charles Babbage (1791-1871) used that term all the time when documenting bugs found with his "difference engine". Keeping traditions alive is a good thing, no? :)

    I assume that message means the H24 sensed it's connected CAT5 and not DECA, so the test doesn't apply.

    OP says he's connected Ethernet and he tried to run a DECA test. I'd expect him to get an error message. Am I missing something? :scratchin

    I think the whole purpose of the thread was simply to question the use of the word "hence". longrider, please correct me if I'm wrong? :)

    You are absolutely correct. I just ran the test out of curiosity to see what it would do with ethernet and the word 'hence' in the error message surprised me. I will admit that Doug's comment about RVU is interesting...
