Installer came to my house yesterday to do the install. I have HR24, HR20, and he was going to install a new receiver in the guest bedroom. All would be connected via MRV and I wanted to continue to receive DoD.
This was all told to the directtv appointment scheduler when I made the appointment.
We received a confirmation call that stated the install would take 1.5 hours.
Installer arrived at 11:30am and left at 4:30pm. He arrived with 2 DECAs and the receiver. He had a guess on how to hook up the HR24 and new receiver but had no clue on how to get the HR20 to work. He also stated that the Southeast (I am in Florida) did not currently have the DECA-to_Broadband equipment so I could not get DoD.
With the help of this forum, I printed out the diagrams of how to hook up the HR20 (http://www.dbstalk.c...ad.php?t=177061
) and a diagram on how to hook up the DoD using another DECA (http://www.dbstalk.c...ad.php?t=177308
). He went back to the office and picked up two more DECAs and proceeded to follow the diagrams as posted on this website. It worked great!
I now have MRV throughout my house and can also access DoD. The only question I have is that:
How do I access my pictures and music on my PC like I use to when I did not have the DECA network? Is it not possible to play pictures and music across the network once you have your MRV connected via a DECA network?
THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL THE HELP FROM THIS FORUM!
