What do I need? HD-DVR and Whole House DVR
Posted 30 July 2011 - 02:24 PM
Currently I have 1 HD-DVR, 1 HD receiver and 2 SD receivers. The HD-DVR is connected to my home network with an ethernet cable but none of the other receivers are connected.
I would like to replace one of the SD receivers with an HD-DVR and have be able to watch recorded shows from any of the HD capable receivers.
What is it that I need and what is it going to cost me both for installation and for additional monthly fees?
Thanks for you help!

It is a single dish with a single coax cable that goes to some type of box that looks sort of like a splitter. From there it uses my existing coaxial cable to each receiver. There is some type of power injector connected inside next to the HR23-700 receiver.

2. a deca will be needed at each reciever..
problably better to just call directv.. they may even upgrade your 2 D12s for free..
MRV was all that's left on my wishlist (wishlist done)

So it sounds like you will need
2 DECA adapters
Band Stop filter for the D12
Broadband DECA adapter (assuming you still want access to Apps and On-Demand)
Possibly a new green labeled splitter and band stop filter for the LNB
This theoretically could cost you up to $450 ($200 for HD-DVR, $200 for Whole Home, $50 for install). Most likely you should be able to get a better deal on that though, especially considering you will have to agree to another 2 years of service because you are adding a new HD-DVR.
All we can say is call and find out what kind of deal they will give you.
