They need to update their specifications. It says that an HR23:eek2: is included in the box. Also the FAQ section.

Edit: They fixed what's in the box but not the FAQ yet...

Yes, I don't expect there to be an avenue for truly owned receivers for quite some time, save for the few that make it to eBay.
Opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect

Apologies if this has been asked before, but does the HR-24 REQUIRE a SWM system or just support it?

Thanks!
Paul

It does not require SWiM, but if you don't have SWiM you'll need to use BBC's connect to the LNB, it doesn't have wideband tuners like the HR23/H23 does.

See post My Setup for configuration info.

And if you want to use MRV with the built-in DECA functionality, you have to have SWiM as well.

I ordered one, and I do have SWiM. Whoopty Doopty. Now to decide if I want to deactivate a DVR or have 8 tuners instead of 6.

Gotta love the typos in the description... Also, it is surprising that although they mention DECA, there is no mention of it in relation to MRV.

I noticed the same thing. Solid Signal recently added the SWM-16 to their web site, and its description does mention DECA. But the DECA devices themselves are not available from Solid Signal.

I went ahead and ordered one too hoping that since I can order an HD DVR online at directv.com for $99 that they will credit me the difference. :D
