I've been with D* for nearly 7 years. My setting has been the same almost since the beginning (started with two SD and one TiVo, and replaced one of the SD for a 2nd TiVo shortly after). I am well beyond my 2 year commitment and I have: 1. Triple LNB Oval dish 2. SD Receiver in the bedroom 3. SD TiVo in the living room 4. SD TiVo in the basement. 5. SWA-48 switch - 4 wires from the dish coming in, 5 going out (2X2 to the TiVo and 1 to the SD receiver in the bedroom. All cables are RG6 One D* CSR told me that it is likely that new cables would need to be run and I was pretty much reluctant to upgrade because I didn't want to drill more holes in my house. Only after speaking with the CSR I checked and realized that these were RG6 cables. I would like to keep the same setup that I have at minimum, that is - replace the two TiVo's with HD-DVR and the SD with HD receiver. I am not interested in MultiRoom DVR because I want to be able to have two independent channels in each of the TiVo/DVR rooms. I did some extensive reading in the last few days but I still have some unanswered questions and I would appreciate your help. 1. Will I be able to keep my existing cables for HD (providing of course they are still transferring signal )? 2. I understand that the HR24 is the most advanced HD-DVR that D* sends out these days. Is it possible to ask to have that one and refuse anything else? 3. Slimline Dish/SWM - is this the "default" installation these days, or is it something I need to ask for? 4. DECA - I still did not quite understand the benefit of connecting all receivers to the internet. If someone can explain to me or point to a link that would be great. Also, a link from as late as October of this year point out that DECA is not yet available, yet other posts tell about DECA installation. Can someone clear this up for me? If it is available - like Slimline/SWM - is it something I can ask for, or does it come in automatically? 5. If I understand the SWM correctly, I will be able to get a DVR for the bedroom (down the road) even though I only have one cable going to that room...? 6. Last but not least - say I want to get only one HD-DVR for the basement and keep the old TiVo in the living room - will I be able to do this with new dish/SWM? Again, any input will be appreciated.
