    I have done some searching around, but I figured I would post Anyways...

    I have Two HD-DVR's and on HD reciever, all hooked up to a wired network. They are all using static IP's. I have verified they are able to get to the internet and all three respond to pings. MRV is activated and turned on.. sharing is enabled

    HD-DVR #1(Living Room) - HR23-700 running 0x0457
    HD-DVR #2 - HR21-700 (Bedroom) running 0x0457
    HD - H23-600 (Office) running 0x4440

    The Bedroom doesn't see the living room. The office can only see the Living Room... if I reset the Living room, the office can see the bedroom, once the living room is back on, the office will see both for about 10 minutes, and then will only be able to see living room. during the period of 10 minutes, the living room can see the bedroom and vice versa.

    This only started last week some time. Nothing has changed on my network. All three receivers are connected to the same switch as well. I moved the ports around to sanity sake, but both DVR's can download on demand and I can remote schedule from directv.com

    Any insight would be great... I haven't called support yet figured I would post here first.

    Thanks

    Excuse the dumb question, didn't see you state it, have you reset the router?

    Might want to list all the network devices and their IPs and router settings to give a clear picture of your setup.

    Have you tried reseting, your Network? Unplug and reset your switch and your router.

    Also you may try setting your receivers back to DCHP-Just a thinking here not recomending.

    Your current wired config will not get you any support from D* only from here as they do not support a wired MRV Config.

    Yes... I have reset...

    I have about 100 devices and three subnets... so I am not going to list everything... but I definitely know the receivers can see each other and can get to the internet.

    Those look like IP addresses and not subnet. :confused:

    On the subnet 10.225.50.x

    Those are the ip addresses they are assigned.

    This level of networking is well beyond me, but "normal" subnets are 255.255.0.0 & 255.255.255.0

    No that is a subnet mask... which determines how many IP on a particular subnet are allowed.

    So if that is what you were asking me, the mask is 255.255.255.0

    The exact same thing happened to me this weekend. I called in and talked to a tech. Tried lots of resets, settings, diagnoses, etc. Long story short...what ended up working was a hard reset on all three of my receivers at the same time. That might work for you, and, if not, maybe speak with a tech and see if they can send you the hard reset signal over the air...in the past, that ended up working for me when a red-button reset wouldn't.

    My setup is somewhat similar...two HR24-200s, one H24, all set to static IP on their own subnet.

    Who puts the router on .5? :D

    I would agree with the poster above and try powering off all receivers at once and then bringing them up one at a time.

    Yeah, that does look weird. But, then my DSL modem router is 192.168.254.254. :)

    Sounds like a 2Wire, but mine is 192.168.1.254, with the DHCP from 192.168.1.64 to 192.168.1.253, leaving all the lower ones for static.

    Thanks I will give the reset (all at the same time) a try. I have reset all of them at one time or another while trying to troubleshoot this issue but never at exactly the same time.

    Having my router @ .5... just habit, a place I used to work used that as the default IP for any router on their network.

    Update: Resetting all the receivers at the same time, didn't solve anything. The only thing is now the Office HD Receiver sees the bedroom HDDVR instead of the LivingRoom HDDVR which is what you could see before the reset.

    This has got to suck, but this isn't a DECA network, so I know I can't offer any help, other than mere sympathy.
    Unsupported networking leaves it all in your lap. :(

    Yeah I know its unsupported... so bazaar...

    Anyways DECA only works with a SWM right?

    Yes, because SWiM frees up the frequency range that DECA uses and also changes things over to using splitters so the DECA signal has paths to each receiver.
