    This solved my weirdness and allowed me to reconnect my router DECA with no problems...thanks for the advice to remove the router DECA. All my stuff worked perfectly isolated. Then when I would connect the router DECA things would stop working. This has solved my problem for the moment.

    Disable UPNP in your router settings. Reboot all your DTV stuff :D

    I'll give it a try. What does UPnP provide anyway? I've never quite understood it.

    EDIT:
    UPnP Service:
    Allows applications to automatically setup port forwardings.

    I have UPnP disabled, never had it enabled.


    I have exactly the same problem, MRV goes away when I connect my deca
    to my router.

    My setup is
    Slimline5 -> SWM8 ->SWM1 -> SWS4 all green
    SWS4 port 1 (pwr passthru) PI28
    SWS4 port 2 Deca -> PI18 -> router
    SWS4 port 3 -> deca-> HR23
    SWS4 port 4 -> HR24

    Also tried
    Slimline5 -> SWM8 ->SWM1 -> PI28 ->SWS4
    ------------
    Run Coax Disgnostics on HR2401
    Signal Strength
    Tuner 1 91
    Tuner 2 92
    Network Tuner 99

    Coax Network
    Node
    0 ... 29
    1 ... 27
    2 ... N/A


    252 253 252
    252 251 249
    251 252 250

    ------------------------
    I unplug Hr23011, HR2401, DECA PI, PS29 to SWM, ethernet cable to router, router

    Then
    1 plug in router
    2 plug in PS29 to SWM wait a bit
    3 plug ethernet into router
    4 plug in Router DECA PI
    5 plug in HR2401 wait until I can run system test,
    network and internet connected OK static ip picked up from router
    5a rerun satellite setup then reboot
    6 plug in HR2301 wait until I can run system test,
    network and internet connected OK static ip picked up from router
    6a rerun satellite setup then reboot

    It seems fine for hours or sometimes minutes ,then MRV fails.

    Advanced Network shows all OK ,Network Connected and Internet Connected.

    I can ping both receivers 2ms responses.

    If I remove all deca's rerun sat setup and connect to my home ethernet network everything works flawlessly, I've never had it fail.

    What router settings could be messing up the cloud?

    I have been working on this problem for 10 days.

    All responses welcome.

    you might want to repost this as a new post if you don't get any responses here. Have you tried turning ON UPnP?

    I've been dealing with this for 3 weeks and it is very frustrating.

    I will try UPnP, but I found this unsupported internet connection method in another thread.

    which then has ethernet coming back to the Ethernet1 port on the HR23.

    This gets internet to all of my DVRs without having to get a special kit added-on.
    ------------------------------

    I am going to try to connect this way, It eliminates the one deca that just feeds the internet.

    All it can do waste more time :) Will post my results tomorrow.

    Thanks

    EDIT:
    P.S
    OK redid the wiring as above
    MRV working both ways
    VOD Working both receivers
    DirectV2PC Working both receivers
    Lets see how long it lasts

    Which is my guess of all that will happen.

    So there are technically two satellite tuners on a non-DVR STB and three on a DVR?

    If you dig into the service menus far enough, yes.

    OK thanks;

    Just one more on this issue though and pardon the off-topic deviation to this thread. But I assume that to accommodate legacy installs the channel guide information along with other system info. is mirrored on two selected transponders, even and odd (LHCP and RHCP) at both 101 and 119?

    Since with legacy installs the receivers are presented either with the even or odd channel sets at any given time, but not both of course.

    Inquisitive minds want to know :)

    Like this hasn't been covered so, so, many times before? :confused: :lol:
    There is guide data in only four places and it doesn't matter what receiver.

    Oh sorry if I missed it ... guess I should have done a search first :)

    But to save time can you bear with me a bit here and explain, ... "four places?" Does that mean a pair of even/odd transponders at 101 and 119 as I suggested?

    I'd still call sharing information "help", so yes even/odd on 101 & 119.

    Now back to our regularly scheduled problem.

    What kind of router?

    What is the reboot Time?

    Does the reboot time coincide with your lose of MRV?

    I'm still up with the revised wiring as mentioned above.

    Everything works.

    MRV
    Directv2PC
    TVapps
    VOD
    DOD

    Anyone reading this thread having similar problems.

    What router do you have?
    Auto reboot, if so what interval?


    Get back to the topic
    Thanks

    Great thanks;

    I knew I was about to get hosed over posting OT here, but thought I could briefly sneak it in anyway without ruffling too many feathers. Apologize to the OP and others annoyed here.

    So ... :backtotop

    No problem, Some people have a problem and it is downplayed by people who have no
    solution.

    He has a 2 wire router, what is that?

    He mentions he knows nothing about routers.

    Please don't pollute.

    Thanks we are trying to solve a problem if you can contribute great if not go somewhere
    else and build up your post count.

    I'm 66 and willing to learn. Try it you'll like it.

    Thanks

    :confused: :confused:
    "He" I'm assuming is ME.
    The point of my 2Wire [router] was to give you a model that works fine. Maybe you or other use this same model, so this is what we would call here "a data point".

    Not to start ragging on a new poster, "but" you've got a few here and I have "just a few more" ;), so most of what I post is to help and not "pollute".
