Received and installed a new H25 for my in-laws today. It came with the component video dongle in the box. Everything was a breeze and this is definately a very small box.

Solid signal has the component cable assembly separately for $9.95 if anyone needs them.

The H25 has passed the 100,000 units installed a few weeks ago.

Any numbers on HR24 models? I'm curious how the four or five posts bitching about how terrible the HR24-500's are stack up against reality. !rolling

Nothing that is semi-publicly available. However, just from my personal experience, all three combined have got to be in the 750,000 to 1,000,00 range. I'm routinely putting in 8-12 per week. I'm one of 200 or so inhouse guys in my market. Others about the same.

id love to get an H25 in the master to replace the current clunky one.

the only issue I have is that my current setup has an ethernet switch in between the deca and the receiver. this way I can run fast wired ethernet to the TV and blu ray player for streaming. its been great so far. with
an internal deca, do I have this option?

can I keep the external deca and run it to the h25? Im guessing I cant split the coax coming from the wall so that one goes to the h25 and the other in just uses the ethernet from the deca.

id love to hook this tiny receiver up behind the wall mounted LCD

You would do just that. Just split the line.

Most likely would need to get a power supply for the DECA as well.

interesting.

so I can get one of these splitters:

SPLIT2MRV

then run a powered DECA off one output that feeds ethernet to the switch and the other output straight to the h25?

Oops. Forgot that part. Yes, a seperate power supply would be needed for the receiver (now otherstuff) deca.

You also need to get a power supply for the deca as well. The 24/25s won't power them.
