Yes, the Linksys WGA600N is auto detected thru the HR it is hooked to.
My posit was mostly (intended to be) a humorous thought exercise.
Yes, the workarounds should be simple.
I had problems at one time piggybacking an HR21 off of another HR21 that was hooked up via WGA600N that was configured thru the first HR21, it kept dropping connection, etc. Once I took the WGA600N off and configured it static, all was well.
Not surprised....static IP's on each device is virtually "a must" to assure a solid connection.
I guess the next question would be if it would still be detected through the MoCA link?
That is going to be a good test, and will the receivers "fight" with each other to configure it.
My guess is that it will have to be manually configured.
"Seems like" configuring it with one receiver through the wireless setup menu and then configuring the other receivers without the wireless would work.
That would make the most sense...we'll just have to see...
Good point, tell the others that they are "hardwired" in the set up menu.
Better late than never...
I've got two switches at the end of hard-wired runs with (at least in one case) multiple DVRs connected to the switch. So I can use one dongle to connect to the switch and then connect multiple DVRs s to the same switch?
Right now I've also got the H21 wirelessly connected via a WGA600N but it is a good candidate for a dongle.
I have a currently unused coax running to the study where the router is located. I was going to use that run for the new HR23-700 that was supposed to be delivered today, but I'm going to have to split my WB68 back in with the SWM8 for the extra 2 tuners - will have 9 now.
You should be able to, I can't think of anything that would stop it from working.
I am going to try the same test as well.
Unless you turn off one of the tuners.
That was never a consideration. :lol:
Got some splitters & diplexors coming from SolidSignal to get the WB68 connected back up along with the SWM8. I'll either run a second coax to the study or maybe connect the 2 lines to the Bedroom to the WB68 (one is simply an OTA feed now).
Don't remember getting an answer to this question the last time I asked, so here goes again:
Any chance that the MRV NR will wait until this network via coax thing is also ready to roll out?
I suspect any NR version of MRV will not happen for a bit yet...surely at least until after we get our "packages".
My FedEx package is tracking as in Toledo!!
Oh wait, that's the SolidSignal order.
Hoping for the end of next week!!
Don't know .. MRV isn't "officially" in H21/3 NR, but that may be more due to the changes not being introduced yet. MRV may make next NR .. may not.
Hope before it comes that they're able to get rid of the random "glitches" in MPEG-4 playback.
