Whole Home DVR and using a splitter for internet
Posted 05 July 2010 - 04:50 PM
HR24-500, HR20-700, and H24
My current Directv install is already pre-wired with coax and Ethernet.
Here is my problem.......I have a splitter in my data closet and in my office for my Time Warner internet and the line for the H24. My internet and Directv have lived in harmony over these splitters for about 4 months.
I've been reading about Swim and DECA and I am worried that I might need the installer to run a dedicated coax line for the H24.
if the installer tries to charge me, is running a dedicated line included in the installation and if so should I call Directv about the additional charge for running another line?
I hope this makes sense and thank you in advanced.

If you get the DECA upgrade, that should include any installation necessary to get you going. With regard to running a new coax for the H24, it is basic installation so they will not fish the cable through walls and rooms. They will take the easiest route for getting the cable to the room with the H24. Anything else will cost extra.
Today's problems don't worry me, I haven't solved yesterday's yet.
