    I have two HR20-100 and would like to use the VOD feature. I have a wireless router (D-Link DI-624) that is connected to my computer and the interenet. What would be the best wireless adapter for my D*TV receivers to work with that? Thanks in advance.

    To save money i would try to hardwire at least one, the other can use a series of hookups. Most will say use a wireless game router or a powerline. If your close to Patterson then there is a store called Micro C****** that could help you out for cheap.

    There are several options for you to use a wireless connection. Assuming your HR20's are in the same area then get a multiport type bridge device if not then use a single port bridge device at each location. Click on the network hlep link in my signature to see different types of hardware devices known to work.

    Good luck and have fun.

    Thanks for the help. The two units are in different areas of the house and it would be difficult to hard wire either at this point. I'll take a look at some of the wireless models and then try it out on one unit first to make sure I can get it working. I'll check out that link.

    I am using the Linksys Wireless Game Adapter WGA54G with no problems.
