If you are running Category 5 cable and not using SwiM-based networking, then you would not want an H25.

Although you could just purchase the coax/Ethernet bridge, and you'd be set.

Jeremy, not sure if your link is messed up or not but isn't this what you meant to link to?

Search for the broadband DECA if neither link works.

If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

The broadband DECA.

That is what I linked to. I had to edit it right after I posted, you probably saw it before the edit.

Thanks, I forgot that was the name for the device. That would simply add DECA to your SWM setup. Correct?

It allows your DECA network to access your ethernet network and vice-versa. So if you have an H25 on your SWM/DECA network and a H21 hooked up via ethernet they could see each other.

The thing they were trying to get at is the H25 does not have an ethernet port, so you have to use DECA in order to use it with Whole Home DVR. If all of your other receivers were already hooked up using ethernet, and you didn't have a DECA adapter the H25 would not be able to see your other receivers. Adding this Broadband DECA would bridge the two networks and start letting the H25 see the others.

Does the H25 come with the component video dongle?


Yes and No .. It's my understanding that the Retail units (SolidSignal, etc.) will in fact include the component cable. I suspect DIRECTV or other installers should have them on the truck for installation if necessary .. although your mileage may vary.

Excellent.

Does anyone have the actual dimensions of this? I suppose they would be in the First Look.

edit: Was their a first look for the H25? Couldn't find one via search.

Thanks. My in-laws H25 is being shipped to them and I will let you and everyone else know if the dongle is included.

I did get an H25 as the stand alone receiver. It is indeed a small little box. Did not get a component cable dongle with it. However, I have no need for one. All my new receivers came from the installer's truck.

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.

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
