I called DirecTV last year and inquired about the whole home dvr. I was told it was going to cost me 450.00 for the equipment and the install. I said no thanks to that deal. I called again the other day and was told it would be 199 for the equipment and 49.00 for the install. We have the HR24 in the bedroom and the HR20 in the living room. I was wondering if there was a way to do it myself and my Google search led me to this board. I e-mailed DirecTv with the info provided in the original post. I received an e-mail thanking me for being a valued longtime customer and they turned on the Whole Home DVR, in less then 3 hours from when I sent the e-mail. The HR20 in the living is plugged into my router via Ethernet. I did not want a long Ethernet chord going to my bedroom from the living room so I picked up the WNCE2001 Netgear wireless Ethernet adapter from Wal-Mart for 50.00. I figured if it did not work then I could return it. Incredibly it all works! I also found the information on how to switch from our current Zinwell WB68 setup to the SWM setup. I am not in a rush to do that now since the wireless is working so well. Just wanted to say thanks!
