Thanks guys! I will call D......
Another probably very stupid question. After installing the Deca I would assume I would do a box reset on the R22. When setting up the network will I chose wireless, or wired, or will it find and connect?
The stupid or dumb ones are those not asked.
A "reboot" should be all you need once it's been installed.
Should you find you need more, this would be a wired connection, unless you also need to setup a wireless link to your router.
Thank you very much!!!!!
Got my component to composite converter today. Snap to hook up to my Russound CAV system, and worked like a charm. Now I can watch full 1080 on the main TV and not have switch to 480 on the other TV's to use the guide, etc. Thanks again VOS!
Can I ask a HR21-100 Connection For VOS whole home Question?
Sure, but the HR21-100 is no different to connect than everything else "but the HR20-100".
I`m Very Glad Y`All said that... Thought my troubles might be in The machine..
Now... My troubles started a few days ago. Took advantage of a Recient Promo by DirectV in they offered a free HDDVR and I took it.
Now HR21-100 was Reconditioned but it does not matter for now...
My setup has 3 other HDHR21-700s.and we had a H25 as the 4th in the setup.. Mention this for the reason we simply replaced the H25 with The HR21-100 just switched the two machines with the proper wires going to the proper places. Now I thought I had a handle on this however Cannot get the HR21-100 to get online... no matter what I do,Kinda Stuck...
So maybe the next question is does the DECA needed to be on the "new" HR21-100 have three green lights?
Yes... All lights are lit.. However its not connected to the HR21-100 as The DECA goes directly to the Router. VOS the setup as is worked for some time only change I made was to Change out the H25 with the HR21-100 its perplexing. also ran the imanedgecutter,Bringmrvback,mrvclienton,widgetson

Well there's your problem. The DECA on the HR21-100 has to connect to the ethernet port of the 21.
If you're trying to do "double duty" it needs a switch:
Your other receivers are connected like this:
So when you swapped the H25 out, "I figured" you knew how to connect the right DECA to the HR21, but it sounds like you have a CCK next to the H25, and not the right DECA for the HR21.
Thank You My Friend... Used the top Pic to set up the HR21-100 and it worked like a charm first time!!!
Btw, after i get the deca ethernet adaptor attached to the HR21 and bridged to my hr34.... do i need to go into network settings on the 21 and repeat network setup or do i need to go into the advanced setup and plug in the IP of the 34 ......or?
Seems like this has already been answered: http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?p=3057181#post3057181
If you're currently not using advanced network settings, then changing from an ethernet connection to a DECA connected to the same ethernet port, shouldn't require anything, as they're both hardwired to your router.
I am using advanced network settings as i have my receivers setup on static ip's
It should still swap over without problems.
Should you have any, reset the network defaults and use "connect now".
I've read up on DECA last nite about connecting the ethernet cable coming from the coax ethernet adaptor into the top ethernet port (for DECA) on the hr21.
But since i'm bridging this thru my 34 do i keep the connection from the deca adaptor on the bottom ethernet port on the hr21 or do the top?
Only one port on the HR21 is the primary, and the secondary shouldn't be used.
It should be the top port, but there have been glitches where these receivers have swapped ports for primary.
The primary connects without problems, while the secondary can cause various network issues.
Not being there, I can't "for sure" tell you top or bottom.
Well right now i'm using the bottom ethernet port on the 21 for my hardwired connection. I guess when i get my coax deca ethernet adaptor tomorrow i'll switch to the top port as instructed but if that doesnt work then try the bottom.
EDIT: I just took the hardwired connection to the 21 and switched it to the top port and it connects to the internet fine too. Unusual for me b/c the last receiver that i had with two ethernet ports was my old HR20-100 and only one of them wuld work to connect to the internet.
And the newer receivers have gone to "one or none".
