Should I be able to move my HR44?

    I recently had DTV install an HR44 when I moved to NC.

    I have 1 C41 client, 1 HR24, and 1 HR44

    Of coarse SWMBO decided that she wanted to move everything around once the the installer left.

    Original install had

    1 55" Sammy LED connected to the HR44

    1 46 inch Sammy LED connected to the HR24

    1 32 Cheapo LCD connected to the C41.

    SWMBO decided she wanted the Big Sammy downstairs where the C41 / Cheapo 32"er was

    The Cheap LCD where the Big Sammy was

    The HR24 /46"er remains unchanged.

    I moved the hr44 and sammy downstairs along with the box that injects network onto the cable downstairs, I put the 41 where the HR44 was and no joy I could not get the HR44 to find the dish so I put everything back.

    I believe there is 1 splitter in the crawlspace with 1 port per location drop in the house and 1 port terminated.

    I ended up moving all the DTV stuff back to their original locations but I'm really not digging the way the C41 behaves.

    Would I be better off enabling the RVU in the Big sammy and ditching the C41?

    are you also moving the power inserter? the PI must remain where it was installed by the tech.

    Yes I moved the PI, so If I leave the PI in the same place I should be OK?

    Edit

    Perfect,

    Thanks

    There is now harmony Chez Shad.

    Well sort of anyway.

    Yep, right on. Do not move the PI.
