I have a install for MRV set up for next Friday. I'm wondering how my cabling will be affected as my DVRs are in entertainment centers and such and not easily accessible. If I know what cable runs are changing, I can have this ready to go for the installer.

Currently I have 2 HR23s. Both have double strand coax coming out of the wall, connecting to 2 BBCs, and then going into the DVRs. (I do not currently have a SWM dish.)

How will this configuration change?

In one of the rooms my Internet router is sitting about 5 feet from a DVR, and about 8 feet or so from the coax wallplate.

Will the tech have to do any additional wall fishing, or can he use the existing coax runs?

HR23s don't use BBCs.

Moving to SWiM, means only one coax is needed for each receiver.
They could use one for the DECA to router bridge, or simply add a splitter off the other coax and feed both the receiver & DECA to router.
Doesn't sound like anymore wall fishing is needed.

Up until just now I thought I had HR23s. I just figured out I actually have HR22-100s. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

I'm assuming those won't need to be swapped out for MRV.

They'll add the DECA adapters to each and work fine.

They will have to change the wiring behind them to disconnect the second coax feed and install the DECA adapters like VOS mentioned. You should move all of your equipment away from the walls, or do whatever else is necessary for them to be able to access the wiring easily.
