I've searched the forums and cannot seem to find this answered elsewhere. Because of the number of internet-capable devices and a limit of two ethernet lines running to the router, I currently have an ethernet line running from the router to a 5-port switch. From the switch, one line serves as the broadband input to the DECA network. The other line from the switch goes to the TV, which supports internet widgets (and makes for easy firmware upgrades). The problem is that when I introduce the switch into the equation, my receivers lose sync for MRV. They "see" each other in that on my H24 I can see the playlists for the H23 and HR24, but when I try to play a program from either location, I get the "lost connection to [location]" message. Immediately after the losing connection message I cannot see the playlists, but it reappears within an hour or so. What would be the problem here? The router is properly issuing IP addresses for all connected devices. In the room with the H24, the tech installed the power inserter for the SWM. From there it goes to the H24. Could that affect the signal from the other IRDs on the network? Everything works and is in sync when the switch is not introduced into the equation. The process of unplugging all devices, and starting one, making sure it works, then starting another, etc. doesn't fix the problem. Am I missing something here? Why would the introduction of a switch make WHD lost sync .. or at least appear in sync at times, but lose sync at othes? Am I overlooking something?
