You dont need deca to watch recordings from your HD receiver..


Not true.

DECA is DirecTV's system of ethernet over coax so the various receivers and DVRs talk to each other. Whole home, or "MRV" (Multi Room Viewing) uses DECA as the approved and supported technology to implement/accomplish MRV.

The H/HR24 products have DECA built in. H21/H22 receivers and HR20/21/22/23 DVRs require an external DECA adapter in order to incorporate them into an existing (or new) DECA infrastructure.

If you already have a DVR, you can add either an HD receiver (H2x) or an HD DVR (HR2x) to your system for multi-room. If you add another DVR, then recordings from both/all can be viewed throughout the system. If you add a receiver, it will be able to view recordings from all DVRs on your system.

Nice used HR20-100 - $180
Access Card $20
DBS Talk Membership $15
DECA $15 or up
Aggravation Priceless

Leased Plug and Play $99 plus shipping

$99 is for a regular receiver, not a DVR. It would be $160 anyway...

I didn't know we had a buy/sell/trade section. I went to look for it and the only one I see listed is archived. Is there another one that's active? I don't see it listed in the drop down menu.


I didn't realize you had to be a club member to see the b/s/t forum. I thought everyone could see it, but only club members could post. My mistake, sorry about that. :)

Yes, is it something that's very old and he never changed it?


It is still current. It just didn't make any sense since you couldn't see that section.
Slimline 5 with SWM-16
Wireless DECA
HR34-700!
