    I've been here longer than you, I think before I answer.

    If you have no conception of our problem please back off.

    Tell me about your data point!

    By the way I'm running fine on your 'Waste of time' wiring.

    Be a man and except new ideas.

    OK, it clearly is time to step back from any personal insults to forum members. ;)

    I'm left guessing this "waste of time wiring" is using a switch between a DECA and receiver for internet access, and if so, then why are you posting here if you're "running fine"?

    OK.

    I'm asking everyone to be polite to each other.

    If you feel a post is off topic, use the Report Post Button ([​IMG]) and a moderator will be dispatched.

    If you don't like what another member is saying, take it to PM.

    All the discussion of how the discussion isn't keeping to the topic of the discussion... is getting distracting.

    As for the unsupported solution of using a DECA to feed both a receiver and a router, do so at your own risk. It will have no effect whatsoever on your manhood. However, you should know that there can be problems with your home network by using that method. If you're a network guru who doesn't mind diagnosing the occasional problem, do as you wish.

    But in the end, I strongly request that all of you be respectful to others in this forum.

    My setup is detailed in the link in my signature below. Anyone too frustrated by the pushiness of some in this thread, feel free to PM me for help. I'm sure all the rest of the CE Allstars feel more or less the same about that. I'm not the networking guru that some people are, but I do have a complicated setup working fine. :)

    So my feeble brain was still working.
    Adding a switch between a receiver & the DECA didn't resolve any of the loss of playlists and turned out to be a waste of time.

    I have no idea of what you find so necessary to take over a thread started by someone else thread and then be the way you are here. :confused:

    Here's an idea for you: put me on your ignore list and let this thread go on it's own course. We don't need a forum/thread policeman here. We have mods that do a very good job.

    Not knowing your receivers, but the OP & I have gone through his to some lengths and while he's using DECA, it isn't the DECA that is the problem, or "I would have" fixed it by now.
    What does seem to be "his problem" is that the router isn't routing all the commands/requests all the time.
    "Your problem" may be much different.

    Yes
    I'm thinking A reboot of the router confuses the MRV software.
    All other applications continue as not interrupted.
    DirectTV2PC continues
    VOD continues
    DOD continues

    But MRV dies and the receivers must be rebooted

    I think the MRV software cannot recover from lost packets and or any anomily

    I think when I reboot the router All services reconnect, MRV fails until a reboot
    of all receivers

    Thanks for answeringh

    That's an interesting theory. I have to disagree though. If that were true, we would see a much more wide spread problem. I have four receivers without this issue and they have been connected via both DECA and Ethernet (currently DECA).

    I tend to think it has something to do with connecting hardware as opposed to firmware.

    I appreciate what you do but I will not take your statements as the law.

    I reserve being able to make my own decisions , I have gotten good information
    from your posts and I don't know how we got here. You have given me great info.

    No disrespect, but lets try to solve this problem.

    I'm thinking that maybe a reboot of the router screws up the MRV communication.

    Lets try to concentrate on this, and solve the problem

    Thank You

    I was hoping that the network failures were associated with the reboots.

    We continue with our problem.

    Thanks

    There may be some merit to this. DirecTV2PC sure doesn't handle network problems very well. re-boots of both the PC & the DVR normally need to be done after the network "has problems" during playback.
    I've been using DECA for over a year now, as I was part of a test group long before its release.
    With the two routers I've used [the 2Wire now, and an old netgear] they haven't given me any problems. I first used MRV over a hardwired network, so shifting to DECA was not that much of a change. I have lost a playlist once or twice, but it was a long time ago and a simply reboot of the receiver(s) resolved this.
    If you think there is a problem with your DECA network, and you have a 24, there are some tests that can be run from the 24, since it has the DECA internally. These I think were covered much earlier in this thread.
    DrummerBoy523 was able to run these and there wasn't any problem on the DECA part.
    Disconnecting his router and having the receivers handle the routing also showed there was no DECA networking problem. This left the DECA to router and the router has the most likely cause and then he swapped out the DECA to router with a new one and the problem persists so the odds of having more than one bad DECA isn't very good, which leave the router as the more likely cause.
